Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 675)


This paper devoted to development of most prosperous scientific directions in twenty-first century. Special attention paid to analysis of future perspectives of robotics, automation and information science and their correlation with life science and most important fields of human activity: sport and culture. Different kinds of sport robots and their functionalities are discussed in details, in particular, humanoids, home service robots, game robots etc. The literature analysis shows: some research and investigations deal with problem to find culture differences when the user interacts with a home robot having facial expressions; different nations have different cultures which are inevitably reflected in communication modes; in the field of sports and athletics, it is important for athletes to recognize their own performance by themselves to gain skills effectively using modern robotic and information systems. The role of information technology in culture and sport development is also under consideration as Internet, World Wide Web, and related information and communication technologies have rapidly spread to a large number of countries and cultures.
