Robots to transform the way we live

 Major strides have been made in artificial intelligence technology.
So much so, it could soon impact the way we work and live.
It was a hot topic during SXSW on Saturday.
    Meet "Amelia."
"What can i help you with?"
She's an android that interacts like a human.
IPsoft has been around for about 16 years.
"I think it's going to be the biggest revolution that man has ever seen," says Chetan Dube, CEO, IPsoft.
With the ability to think like a human rather than simply mimic thought processes.
Over the next decade, we're expected to see AI technology transform businesses and our society.
"I'm convinced that we'll be passing someone in the hallways and not be able to recognize if it's a human or an android. Those androids will become very effective allies of humans," says Dube.
Whether it be flying a plane, harvesting crops, driving a car or doing chores; the possibilities are endless.  
That's the message IPsoft CEO Chetan Dube gave to other tech experts in a SXSW presentation on Saturday.
But, not everyone is accepting of the idea.
Members of the campaign "Stop the Robots" picketed Saturday afternoon at the Austin Convention Center.
They want to raise awareness about the dangers we could face.
"Technology and humans working together for the greater good of humanity rather than having robots at war that have only one moral complex. You unleash it in a city and all of a sudden there is destruction, things like that. We create artificial intelligence that's smarter than us, why would it ever keep us alive?" says Adam Mason, Stop the Robots.
Dube says that is not the case.
"Wouldn't it be brilliant if man brought life to another planet like Mars? Those are things that machines can never do. Machines can be the most faithful servant known to man-kind, who will assist man in realizing those dreams," says Dube.
He hopes the public will realize the significance this can have on our future.
