Beware of maid

There will be new household services: a robot maid, cook, laundry, etc. These autonomous systems will be able to carry out a number of tasks, in the case of complex operations use the processing power of the central intelligent system, and in rare and hard cases switch to remote technical support managed by people. There will be mass attempts to hack such robots made by protesting activists and criminals as well trying to blackmail the owners of devices and companies. Of course, these devices will open a unique opportunity of target surveillance and espionage, since they all will be equipped with cameras, microphones and a number of other sensors. So mass compromising situations will be noticed by more serious players that have access to the state budget. Compromising of manufacturers’ infrastructure and the implantation of code in devices will become the aim of more serious attacks.

I agree
I don't agree
rbuszka This type of 'revolution' will be a symptom of the accelerating division between those who can afford robot-enabled living and those who just try to survive while navigating slums.

Neil These things will not be cheap. I say It will remain the toys of research companies, niche things like shop window objects and at most doorway receptionists. Too expensive for householders. At a stretch It may serve those with accessibility needs but may not be supported by government funding in most countries.

David Goodwin A scary side effect of the move towards technology dependence. After all you can't hack a traditional oven or piece of paper.

ShawnOC Robots have proved significantly better at thinking than they do at doing. Economist and researchers which Tim Harford sites in his "50 things that made the modern economy" podcast and book - on the topic of robotics - that we are far closed to reaching managerial automation than we are to reaching the Jetson's robot maid - Rosey.

Andrew Plum I'm sorry, but don't you think that people hacking robots would try to hack the system that stops them from doing this? Internet insurance would have to rise out of the blue then. Huge amounts of money will travel online. All can be hacked. Systems which stop hackers will be hacked. Sure humans could get involved with stopping it, but then they would be vulnerable to attacks. This does stop all the inexperienced hackers though. Good job.
