I am convinced that the decades-old dream of a useful, general-purpose autonomous robot will be realized in the not too distant future. By 2010 we will see mobile robots as big as people but with cognitive abilities similar in many respects to those of a lizard. The machines will be capable of carrying out simple chores, such as vacuuming, dusting, delivering packages and taking out the garbage. By 2040, I believe, we will ﬁnally achieve the original goal of robotics and a thematic mainstay of science ﬁction: a freely moving machine with the intellectual capabilities of a human being.
