Google's (GOOG) Eric Schmidt Says 'Robots Will Become Omnipresent'

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt expects robots to "become omnipresent in our lives in a good way."

In a recent conference talk Schmidt commented on the future of robotics, saying that robots will eventually "replace a lot of the repetitive behavior in our lives," according to Seeking Alpha. The chairman didn't discuss any specifics, however.

Google as a company has shown great interest in robotics in recent months. The company recently acquired a number of startups focused on robotics, with Boston Dynamics being one notable acquisition. Former head of Android Andy Rubin is also working with robotics with the company. There are also reports of Google working with Foxconn to create robots to further automate manufacturing.

Schmidt also commented on artificial intelligence at the conference, calling it "the biggest thing" going forward. "Technology is evolving from asking a question to making a relevant recommendation," he said. Google uses A.I. to suggest relevant information in its Google Now service, which Schmidt earlier said could be used for enterprise analytics in addition to personal use on smartphones and tablets.

Shares of Google were gaining 0.3% to $1,222.41.
