In search of a robot more like us

John Markoff, writing in the Times, about the struggle to teach robots to perform tasks that are simple for humans. Here’s what I wonder: If/when robots achieve intelligence equal to or greater than our own, will they even want to be like us? Will they be astonished at how much time and effort we put into trying to create a mechanical version of ourselves? My sense is the robots will not be overly impressed with humans, and might have little interest in being like us.

  1. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about
    setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers

  2. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think of if you added some
    great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
    this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Awesome blog!

  3. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  4. Fashion is something that is constantly changing, something
    that is deeply rooted in the way people present themselves and
    see themselves. You are able to include worth to some basic
    outfit by picking out fringed or beaded Boho boots or shoes.
    Fashion shows the simplicity and emit fashion temptation.

  5. After turning off power to the room, unscrew the unit and detach the wires from it.
    A lot of people put emphasis on to the items to go on the walls and perhaps even items
    such as bedspreads and knickknacks. Local Small Business and Marketing expert Claude Whitacre is author of the book
    The Unfair Advantage Small Business Advertising Manual. There
    are exterior lights that are activated by movement. Living in your
    house may have become boring to you, just because it looks the same.

  6. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this
    blog. I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own blog now đŸ˜‰
