HUMANOID ROBOTS TO TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN – By N.S.Venkataraman Humanoid robots   are now being rapidly developed by several research institutions around the world. It is reported that there are more than 22 humanoid  robots in the world right now, some of which  are in the  prototype development stage . Researchers in several countries including USA, Japan, China , Israel, Iran , Singapore  are actively involved in research and development  work, causing high expectation . Several funding agencies are too joining the fray by extending financial support to the humanoid robots  projects , thus reserving their place to exploit  the business  potentials in the coming decades. Certainly, humanoid robots will,  sooner or later  and perhaps sooner than later , make   big impact on the life style of human beings, work culture, value systems and   productivity in various spheres of life.   It is widely believed that   in the coming years, ...

Limits of Thought on Life Process-by N.S.Venkataraman Image Source:Slguardian Source:Slguardian Everything happens in my life without my consent. I was born without my consent, though perhaps with the consent of my parents. I would pass away one day against my consent. The limbs and other parts of my body grow without my consent and steadily decline over the years without my consent. All is happening, with myself remaining simply as an observer. The time that I spend in my life seems to be only a time-passing exercise, in total ignorance of my origin and end. Even if I may not be very keen to know from where I came into the world, certainly I am very keen to know where I would go after my passing away. Perhaps, if I know the destination, there would be greater clarity of thought for me, and there could be some sort of comfort ...

                                    LET NOT THE POLITICIANS  DRAG DOWN  SRI LANKA’S  RECOVERY – by N.S.Venkataraman  While  the economic crisis in Sri Lanka has drawn the attention of the entire world and several governments are concerned about the turn of events in  Sri Lanka, it is sad that politicians in Sri Lanka are discussing more about political issues  rather than about economic issues. The ongoing economic crisis in Sri Lanka can be sorted out in quick time only by finding technological and industrial / agro management solutions and not by political solutions.  Obviously, the fate of  Sri Lanka today depends on utilising the services of economists, technologists and industrial executives   who have the expertise and not by the antics of politicians.  The present situation demands that politicians should go silent at least until such time that Sri Lanka’s ...
