The evidence gathered so far suggests that we are likely to do so tell robots and processes our darkest and deepest secrets. So what are the dangers of trusting robots?

The rise of the robots

Once you’ve lived with any form of robot in your home, it’s important to manage your expectations. We still have a long way to go before we are finally safe around them.

We shouldn’t fall for what we see in robot movies. Robots do not act autonomously because human operators remotely control their operations.

Know who you’re talking to

Some customers may be comfortable with unconscious devices as long as they don’t reveal personal information that won’t see the light of day.

There are so many cases around and some people might think they are talking to bots in the true sense of the word it is the people who give them the information.

Therefore, as robots continue to be connected to the Internet and can respond in different languages, you need to be vigilant. Know who or what you’re sharing your information with to avoid a surprise.

A robot that records our activities

It is important to understand how our information is stored and shared with robots that record everything about us. Some recording devices are for fun but can be manipulated for nefarious purposes.

For example, Nixie, a wearable camera that can be removed from your wrist and take aerial photos around you. It is easy to determine how such a device can be manipulated.

There are people who are very wary of recording devices, but once they get comfortable around some other robots, they lose their guard.

There are many technologies around us that record and process speech, images and movements, record conversations and much more. This poses a great danger to our security because anyone can access this information.
