My son has a friend over. The cat’s robot feeder activates and my son explains that the robot feeds the cat so we don’t have to. Immediately after this, the roomba vacuum starts up for its daily cleaning of the house.
This kid must think we are the laziest family ever. Wait until I yell at Alexa to turn on the lights later.
My husband gave a presentation to a 4th grade class yesterday and asked the kids how they veiw the future and what new technologies they think we will have 50 years from now.
I asked him how it went and he said, “It’s amazing the number of children who answer Robot Slaves. In fact, one kid drew a picture of himself pointing and yelling ‘Bring chips!’ while a robot bent over meekly in the corner.”
An opinion piece on CNN is titled “Should we fear killer robots?”
It does seem like a no-brainer because of the adjective “killer.” If this headline said, “Should we fear killer dolphins?” or “Should we fear killer hedgehogs?” my answer would be the same.
This is the only story I felt was worth reading today on CNN. It was far more interesting than tennis injuries and political fighting. More of this please, CNN.
