"worker control" "worker control" all i hear from socialists is about the workers as the top class.

there are more of us than just workers and owners.
there exists fairness and decency beyond mere might-is-right.
workers retaining their position as the ruling class depends on their retention of being workers. so, the system perpetuates enslavement, if your emphasis is on worker ownership and control of the means of production. when will we achieve #emancipation if doing so would be the loss of all power?

would not democratic control go beyond the replacing the ruling class with a new ruling class of the workers?

if we have the means of production democratically controlled by all, not just by the workers (i.e. those seeking to profit), then we will be better positioned to seek/invent/build emancipation technologies. incentivised, and de-disincentivised. incentivised (by the emancipation), and de-disincentivised (by removing the loss of power that occurs when power is c...

It's worth noting: even if Machine Learning is good for certain processes, it doesn't reduce the amount of input processing required for different chat bot processing: machine learning is only useful for physical behaviors and emotions. #machine #learning #robots #ruby
 
Like you, we end up watching a lot of #streaming television when we aren't exercising, volunteering for charity, starting our own disruptive businesses and so forth. And we see this commercial frequently. It's for a beer drink. In the commercial young, beautiful, multi-culti people who are just like all of us—or at the very least the kinds of people who are close friends with us—are in stiff, physical competition against humanoid robots for reasons I cannot suss out. At the end, the young, beautiful, successful people retire to a bar where they joyfully consume #beer drinks. They agree on the theme. What good is all this frantic, physical activity if we don't pleasure ourselves with beer drinks afterward?

Outside, a #robot peers inside and sees the young people, who clearly are not racist, sexist, unhealthy, poor, or in any... Show more...

Otherwise you end up with a style mess, and not just a fertilizer one: brown using doesn't blend with green, but rather, like a tree, contrasts with it in a beautiful way.

Its essentially like expecting weeds to take on the color of cedar. #chia #robots

There might actually be a really cool but gimmicky to cut costs on repairs for growing hair on an Android: use a similar approach to how you grow plants by watering them in a special pot. And have grow the hair in that pot to the desired length.

U.S. military researchers have chosen two organizations to develop enabling technologies for insect-size robots able to perform complex jobs like disaster relief or inspecting hazardous environments that are inaccessible to larger robots.

#Robots build a #Robotics #Museum. That raises an extremely exciting question, formulated excellently by author Jesus Diaz: „Are they using robots to build the robot builders, and, if so, who will build the robots that build those robots and would this infinity loop cause a tear in the space-time continuum that will suck the entire museum into a black hole?“

Robots now challenge you in Jenga


The process went like this. The researchers equipped an industrial robot arm with a force sensor in its wrist and a two-pronged manipulator, and sat it down in front of a Jenga tower. The robot got its sense of sight from a camera trained on the tower.

You look at the tower and your eyes don't tell you anything about which piece you should touch,” says MIT mechanical engineer Alberto Rodriguez, coauthor on the paper. “That information comes from probing it—it requires interactive perception.” With both sight and touch, the physics of a Jenga tower become more apparent.

As this new robot is Jenga-ing, code is comparing its experimental proddings to previous attempts and evaluating its success.

CES is over. 180,000 people, 3 million square feet of display space, and armies of robots, gadgets, electronic gewgaws, and everything in between hit Vegas like a heavyweight's uppercut last week.

Hen-na fires half of its robot employees over inefficiency


And Chu-ri-chan is just the tip of the iceberg. Check-in robots need help, concierge bots are clueless, luggage carriers have trouble reaching rooms and entertainment bots break down. There are a few successes, of course, such as a giant robot arm that moves luggage to storage boxes. Other hotel chains, such as Yotel, also use these arms.

What is funny about it is that they first fired humans over their inefficiency, thus employing robots. Now, they fired robots and will possibly turn back to human resources, because they do their work better than the robots. Oh, bitter-sweet irony....

The Pentagon’s emerging technologies unit put out a call last week for proposals that use insect brains to control robots — because they could be used to create efficient new models for artificial intelligence, but also because they could be used to explore the meaning of consciousness.

Robot swarms can form structures on their own, like cells in our bodies
Need a bridge in a hurry? Send in the swarm.
...according to new research published in the journal Science Robotics, micro-bots can communicate with one another to determine where they're needed and what form they should take.
Need a bridge of bots to traverse a disaster-stricken area? Send bots into the breach. Or an emergency shelter in a raging storm? Unleash the robo-swarm!...
"We show that it is possible to apply nature's concepts of self-organisation to human technology like robots," group leader James Sharpe, explained in a press release...
