Modest robotics

In Excerpts on March 13, 2011 at 10:03 am

I am in support of anyone advocating for the “modest and reasonable” use of robots.

“Considering the revolutionary potential of [Gramazio & Kohler’s] work, you might expect a note of utopian zeal from the pair. [But] if you want dazzling Wellsian predictions, delivered with glittering eyes, of future armies of architect-controlled mechanoids transforming the world, you’ve come to the wrong place.” [Their] vision is, instead, “understated, modest, [and] reasonable.”
