    So what you're saying is that, for the well being of a future world where robots are more common, we should learn to be comfortable around and trust robots we see? Blindly? That sounds like something a robot would say. I'm watching you Turney..

    I hate myself for doing this, but...

    IEEE is pronounced I-Triple-E, not I-E-E-E, and NAO is pronounced "now," and he is awesome. Really... Fucking... Awesome...

    Chobits when?


    Not saying I want to touch robotic butt... But I'm also not 'not' saying that.


    Mentioning Miku was an interesting coincidence at the start though as I imagine that her concerts might be one of the first places a robot humonid would be seen, even if it was just following a routine.

    So far it's all just news about studies on robots somewhere far from public eyes making it feel like distant sci-fi to me

    Meg that air hump at the ~40 second mark was the best looking air hump I've ever seen, I can't put my finger on why though.


    Comment regarding the robots themselves, there has to be a Bob's Burgers episode script hiding in the development of these enthused butt-touching robots.

    Is this the point where we find out how to put Aasimov's 3 laws of robotics as hardwired into the robots?

    Stuff like this makes me wonder if we need to tweak the Turing Test...

    Maybe we should just stop work on AI development in any form, since it doesn't help us in any real way and it's a waste of money.
