Still catching up on work that emerged while in Scotland, I did take some time to follow a robot through Jericho today. It was collecting information about the world using GPS, a video camera, and a three dimensional laser rangefinder. While it wasn’t the cleverest of robots, it was a worthwhile experience. My fears about the coming robot uprising have been temporarily allayed; so long as throwing a blanket over one is a completely incapacitating act, we should be able to endure.
PS. Today involved an especially surprising unbloggable event. I need to think about it.
