technology. Although it is not simple to compare the intelligence of a robot and a human being, one way of looking at the evolution of a robot’s intelligence to the level of human intelligence by 2040 is shown in Fig. 8. It is interesting to note that one goal, known as the “RoboCup,” is set to be achieved in 2050 [12]. The RoboCup is a very ambitious project whose goal is to have a team of robots play soccer against a human team in 2050 and win. Will it really be achieved? It is clear that an enormous amount of pattern processing, matching, and recognition needs to be done in the robots or by accessing the “big data” stored in the data center. In either case, much higher integration and higher power efficiency is needed for processing and storage than is available now. No one knows for sure if this goal can be achieved, except for one thing; the answer will depend very heavily on the progress of semiconductor technology, where the challenge is to achieve human-level intelligence within the limits of allowable power consumption.
We are facing a very interesting and challenging future .
