The vision of robots taking over the world might sound like something out of a dystopian science fiction novel.
But robots will outnumber humans by 2048, an expert has predicted today. According to ‘leading futurologist’ Dr Ian Pearson, earth’s robot population will grow from around 57 million to 9.4billion over the next 30 years.
Dr Pearson, a British novelist, engineer and inventor, said robots could also become ‘emotionally intelligent’ by 2028.
He said his predictions are based on the ‘modest’ assumption that the number of robots will grow by a fifth each year.
