Dale P. Layman of Joliet, Illinois, Recognized by the International Assoc. of Who's Who for Exemplary Achievements in the Field of Education and Medicine

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 9, 2016) - Dale P. Layman is the Founder and President of Robowatch, LLC. The website is at this address: Robowatch is an international non-profit group whose main purpose is to keep a watchful eye on the fast-moving developments occurring in the fields of robotics, computing and artificial intelligence industries. They are advocates for human rights and serve to inform and protect the masses against the continued advancement of robotics that are leading to a negative impact on society.

Robowatch, with Dr. Layman as President, is the culmination of decades of education, experience and knowledge. It is dedicated to keeping a watchful eye on the fast-paced and quickly evolving technology that is subtly becoming interwoven into our society and the lives of all citizens in every country across the globe. With the financial challenges and added responsibilities facing individuals, companies and general society, people are distracted by trying to keep pace. Keeping alert to the degree in which technology is involved in the lives of all, therefore becomes difficult. Robowatch, under the dedicated leadership of Dr. Dale Layman and its members, remains attentive. It helps educate individuals, governments and societies on the imperative and urgency of maintaining checks and balances when it comes to Robotics, Computers and Artificial Intelligence. Keeping humanity "human" -- with the role of technology balanced and not becoming techno-human and off-balance -- will assure a better world and more balanced society. This would be an impossible goal without the dedication of Robowatch and its international resources.

Dr. Layman holds an A.S. in Life Science, Lake Michigan College, 1968; a B.S. with distinction in Anthropology - Zoology, University of Michigan, 1971; an M.S. in Physiology, University of Michigan Medical School, 1974; Ed.S.

The global community owes a debt of gratitude to Dr. Dale Layman for all his contributions, dedication and vigilance. As a finale, Dr. Layman wishes to introduce a new scientific and medical term (in addition to the unique term, Compu-think). This new term is, psychosomatic technophilia. Translated from the Latin, this term literally means, "an abnormal love or attraction" (-philia), for "technology" (techn) that (replaces) the human "body" (soma) and "mind" (psych). Dr. Layman strongly suspects that psychosomatic technophilia is a largely undiagnosed -- as well as almost completely unrecognized -- type of behavioral addiction, and possible form of OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). Due to the wide occurrence of psychosomatic technophilia among many computer-using individuals, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics are being allowed to keep expanding at an ever-accelerating rate! This may well lead to an intelligence explosion (of AI) that will soon create a Critical Challenge to The Future Survival and Well-being of All Mankind -- to its Still-Natural Body, and its Still-Human Mind!
