|

I happened to interview IAS officer Aditya Ranjan, who turned his passion for Robotics into reality by creating the COVID Cobot in his district Chaibasa to carry out food and medicine delivery services to COVID suspected or positive patients. It amazed me to see the work he did and I was intrigued to learn more. “The bot performs basic delivery services with ease,” he said thereby reducing risk of constantly coming in human contact with other members. “What is it that the bot cannot do then?” I enquired. “Well it cannot be empathetic. It cannot think of the next best possible creative solution. It cannot perform critical thinking activities.

Left with no other alternative of human help, and...
