10:15 am
an international border, it's become much more serious. it's feared the violence could spiral into a protracted and bloody civil war and destabilize the entire region. you're watching d.w. news coming to you from berlin. up next is our magazine shift living in the digital age. omarion haven't seen, i'll be back at the top of the hour at, with another update for you. hope you join me then w.'s crime fighters are back at the good laugh for those most successful radio drama series continues in the only disowns are available online. if course you can share and discuss on t w, africa's facebook page and other social media platforms, crime fighters to me. and now the missionary and the trade minister, the diplomat,
10:16 am
who always gets straight to the point. the good to institute's outgoing director, klaus to tell a man we look at his final year in office and his in press of career claim. the last cultural diplomat starts nov 16th on t.w. . doing the dishes, folding laundry and packing a lunch box, scientists, ice drawing the different ways it was robots could help us. how exactly could robots shape our everyday lives? our topic on shift today to pan produces around 50 percent of the world's robots. no wonder it's called the
10:17 am
robot nation. this is even an official government scheme that focuses on a new industrial revolution through robotics, but robots, a commonplace in many other areas too. in japan, where nearly 30 percent of the population is 65 or older, robots are more important for personal use. is your rosy ishiguro a world leading roboticist on why? we need to have a more robots that can support our day. i believe they can help with their rope, but that kind of a robot society, the scene human, seen the article in the robots with the future symbiotic robots. that sounds a little too science fiction need to meet. still, many tech companies claim that their orbits can really make a difference in house work, but this is still far ahead in the future, even in japan. at the moment, most robots take care of one specific chore and leave the rest to humans like me. it is a japanese style of however, working on a robot which they claim will take care of all housework. but let's look at
10:18 am
introducing you. go all around talent and future household. superstar hugo can grip is hide adjustable and rolls on wheels. the start of your robotics promotes. hugo is a more discrete and cheaper alternative to a human cleaner. we're pretty uncommon in japan. at the moment, you go still appears to be quite slow and clumsy. but in the future, this new robot butler is supposed to be able to take on any household chore imaginable. i would like to let robots handle repetitive tasks than routine toss, so that people can be more creative. for example, if the robot does the housework for us, we can dedicate this time to our family and have fun with it. all we have more time for us. this is how we want to improve the quality of life for people in japan.
10:19 am
hugo's equipped with a total of 22 sensors and 3 cameras to assist in navigating space and recognising objects. despite being quick with an ai system, if you go, we still incapable of doing chores properly on its own. so a staff member has to operate it by remote control. a controller synchronizes the robots movements with those of the human operator. hugo is still a long way off from working autonomy. asli. so you go is operated by someone i don't know from a remote place. what do they see? as the camera get turned off? what happens to my data? who protects my privacy? that operators only see blurry images. so do robots have to guess what they're cleaning to someone like me, that's not very convincing. i can be a bit of a neat freak. toyota is also working on a ton of those robots who help manage house work. but this one issue that is difficult to solve. the robot has to know how much pressure the sponsor needs to apply on to different surfaces to properly clean them with an expensive flat screen
10:20 am
t.v. . the machine should be very careful when humans and robots work together. security becomes important. this robot is already working with humans in japan. up next is a humanoid robot developed to collaborate with human colleagues. companies like oman and coauthor. robotics are leading the race and developing collaborative robots. these new colleagues have one importunate vantage over people. their work is precise and they never get tired. particularly, we have to make serious productivity improvement. japanese use the c. to do this. so we're not going there still the robot. robotics trade fairs like iraq's in tokyo show what the future workplace could look
10:21 am
like in japan. robot production has long been a key industry around 130 companies make robots here in the past. these trade fairs were opportunity, as for companies to show off. big robots used in industrial production. now there's a trend toward service and partner robots or so we also go for the recently, the government's focus has shifted from making new robots to using them sensibly in society. so do i thought i should have sort of the you will suck. i just source. they got suckered. it's going to do you and i think we need to think of robots as tools or partner was to reach our goal of building a better society where people can feel good and healthy. but i don't know you're talking with us or you struggle with us here when you must. it's a big vision with a long way to go. there are still many technicalities that need to be addressed,
10:22 am
particularly because collaborative robots are often a security risk for their human colleagues. since robots can't estimate their own strength, next age operates in batteries. saving mode. 8 cameras attached to its head and arms are supposed to help the robot to analyze space. an object, interchangeable robot hands used to grant enhance its many uses, but at around 90000 euros a piece. not every company can afford this technology the right now, the next stage is just working in the factory that this double collaborative robot will be needed in a way where we're hoping that will someday be able to take it to their construction sites. the forestry fishery homes in japan, they will not be taking away jobs that there will be there will be a core workers. that's what it is. like many other western countries will still prejudiced against industrial robots. here in germany,
10:23 am
the main argument is they take away no jobs, but they're leaving all something else. coworking can also make jobs easier. friends, roboticist jones, the young one to you, has been working and living in japan for a long time. she says that code working with robots is viewed differently. they're very different if you eat something, was different about craftsmanship and the art of making things perfect. there is also a very clear social care by companies to that was and so they never introduced one month to replace one, but they introduced was to make the workplace better working with the robot is something that is i don't like having a robot in your company. something that is really nice. this attitude that draws a cord is a sentiment that you go develop us also ship a remote control used by and operate it isn't exactly cool, but it's only a temporary measure. you will believes that intelligent machines will take on shows
10:24 am
independently in the future goes target audience for the elderly and professionals . the company believes that you can make a real difference in their lives, but it's also expensive. depending on operating time, the monthly rental costs are between 800 to 600 euros. the upside is you go, supposed to make life longer and more comfortable. you are more in the future, i find vision robot and 3 on houses and doing all the home alone with the advancement of medical care in japan. i think that this will enable people to live longer than they did about robots, like hugo also sought after for their ability to assist in medicine, especially since the outbreak of the coronavirus now robotics companies. i preparing their robots to assist in 3 key areas. cleaning robots could contaminate rooms or dispose of hospital waste,
10:25 am
so humans avoid risks. check ups robots could help check on patients confined to their beds or in quarantine. this could alleviate the pressure on medical stop. telemedicine robots have been assisting during surgery for a while in japan. they're also creating so-called surgical robots, tokyo based start up river field, wants to launch its new model in a few years to compete with the current m.v.p. of surgical robots made in the u.s. . when it comes to surgical assistance, da vinci is state of the art. this robot can remove tumors tissue from someone with prostate cancer, but it doesn't operate autonomously. a control panel that surgeons use the robot arms in real time, which has one big advantage, motion scaling and trammel filters. this allows the surgical robot to work more precisely. but the da vinci robot has to disadvantage is it doesn't receive any haptic feedback, meaning it can't feel for specific body parts. and it's very expensive to
10:26 am
eventually cost up to $2000000.00. europe's tokyo based company river is trying to solve these problems. there robot is quite similar to defense and will cost less. here the robot arms are powered by air pressure. this enables haptic feedback, reducing the risk of injury. so this should make the operation more intuitive. we believe more in your path coming this or what i may need for treatment. many other countries are also turning to robots to help in the medical and care centers. future physicians will have to train intensively to use these new technology. this
10:27 am
benefit. not only for the patient, but also for the patient still favored to become recovery become faster. also for the doctors. they can do the surgery by sitting in the chair. so far. thank you. is they can be minimized by using the robot. surgeons probably won't be replaced anytime soon, but with the right mobile communication, doctors could soon be performing tell us surgery across long distances. and this may be beneficial for people living in remote areas without access to medical care whether they're assisting in surgery or doing chores at home. robots are supposed to help people with things that are difficult or that we simply don't want to do. in japan. i saw how ai machines are used in daily life,
10:28 am
and if it were up to professor for me to argument to know, we wouldn't even be aware of the role that machines play in our lives. there is a term that i always eagle, which is that of the disappearing robot. he points out. so i mean in the future, robots will become invisible to us. they will be such a common part of our lives that we don't really think of them as robots. and you know, well, if my own vacuum robot had only done his job properly, then i'd probably still be using it. robots for personal use at home, helpful, or just new electronic waste. let us know what you think on facebook or d, w dot com at to you, would you for more videos from japan, including more robots? that's it for me today. see you next time.
10:29 am
now they're learning how to process trauma. just one of the many projects initiated by her current goal to better the lives of the somali people neat the 2020, german africa prize winner next to w refrigerants just spoke of smart ways to get your gold
