Why We Do – what We Do with Robots @ CIT ??


The other day I read a Blog written by Dr. Mari Vircik – my assistant explaining what we really do with those many robots in Center for Intelligent Technology at TU Kosice. Pls read  it is very nicely written with an  aim to expain what really we are doing with them. Have a look at

After reading this blog I started to think that we do have 21 Robot units and we do have enormous potential. But Why we do that ? Because we earn PhD, MSc.  or asistent professor, associate professor or professor title ? Or for money ? I believe NO – we have not high salaries and if I am professor or not it is really not so big deal. I am proud of obtained titles (prof. , PhD… etc..) but is only a TOOL. Tool to be curious. So basicaly WHY we do it with Robots – because – we are CURIOUS. Curiosity is absoutelly important to be a researcher. Some people are medical doctors, fitness coaches, pilots, manual workers – we are research people.


So IF you are CURIOUS – think to be RESERACHER !



So giving you answer WHY we Do – what we DO @ CIT

I rather ASK YOU to create answers on the following questions as follows:


I do divide these questions into 3 types








Examples of Social Questions are having impact to all the people on this planet :

  3. IF No – are you serious ? J
  4. Will Robots take jobs from Humans or help to humans ?
  5. Will Robots change our lives ?
  6. Many other questions …


Examples of  Research Questions :

  1. How we will able to make machine able to recognize objects like humans ?
  2. Will the Robots learn  ?
  3. Will each Robot have its own isolated software or connected integrated Cloud Based system ?
  4. How can we achieve easier communication between Humans and Robots ?
  5. Will be something like Robot Ready Environment ?
  6. How will Robots show emotions for Humans – will that be important ?
  7. Many other question ….


Examples of technological Questions :

  2. Cloud Computing can help to Robots ?
  3. Will be a framework for Robots like Orange, O2 , Verizon or Softbank ?
