Robots and humans

South Hinksey

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.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
