Read the passage carefully and choose the correct answer.

What happens if, or when, robots are more intelligent than us? If we are going to start to see robots running around with personalities equivalent to human beings, in fifteen or twenty years. It is about time that we start thinking about that now. These machines are being developed. What will be the ultimate effect of this? Should they be allowed to make decisions regarding the application of labour force? What form and how intimate should human-robot relationships become? Is it a good or bad thing if robots become our natural successors and we fade into extinction?

Today’s computers operate using transistors, wires and electricity. Future computers might use atoms, fibers and light. A new NASA-developed computing device allows machines to work much like the brain. This technology may allow fast-thinking machines to make decisions based on what they see. A planetary rover might use this technology to avoid obstacles. A spacecraft might use the technology to avoid hazards and identify a pre-selected landing site with very high precision. The device works much like the brain, whose power comes from the complex networks of interconnections called “synapses” between brain cells. Networks of these brain cells, called neurons, allow humans to make instant decisions based on an observed image or scene.

What might the world be like, if computers with the size of molecules become a reality? There will be the types of computers that may be everywhere, but never be seen. Bio - computers with very small size will target specific areas inside your body. Imagine the ways that billions of tiny, powerful computers will change our society.

Question 36: In the future, robots will take place of the human labor force.

  • a. True
  • b. False
  • c. No information

Question 37: Human beings will be in danger of extinction due to robots’ destruction.

  • a. True
  • b. False
  • c. No information

Question 38: So far, the scientists from NASA have developed machines, which work in the same way as the brain.

  • a. True
  • b. False
  • c. No information 

Question 39: A new NASA-developed computing device can help a spacecraft avoid hazards and identify a pre-selected landing site with very high precision.

  • a. True
  • b. False
  • c. No information

Question 40: New computers in the future, will have such.a small size that they cannot be seen.
