Robots have not taken over the world. Yet. But with recent advances in humanoid robots and the growing field of cybernetic enhancement of humans, a convergence looms. Exciting? Scary?

In a three-week full-court press of videos and stories, LiveScience will examine how:

  • Robots are being made in our image.
  • Robots are learning to walk, think and feel.
  • Robots are increasingly able to take care of us.
  • Human individuality may be at risk.

Episode 1 will go live at 2 p.m. ET today. The 10-part series continues each Monday, Wednesday and Friday through April 6.

Until then:
