Correlational/QR Codes for Autonomous Robots

Remember when I said I wanted to print correlational codes onto objects so that they can easily be identified and oriented by robots? Remember when you looked at me as if I’m crazy? If you look at this video of the ATLAS robot from Boston Dynamics, you can see the objects and doors have the same type of codes printed on them.

Totally vindicating.

A Parent’s Perspective on Sentient Machines

Being a parent gives a whole new perspective on AI and robots. The guy uses the term “motor babbling”. The machine eventually learns to walk on its own much the same way babies learn to speak and walk. It’s kinda cool being part of the generation witnessing the closing gap between humans and machines. I think this concept is unpalatable to people (and even a few friends) because of the human ego. We used to fancy ourselves being the center of the universe and put up a lot of resistance to the idea that we orbit the sun, which is one of many stars out there. The next big shock will be the realization that machines can be truly sentient and not philosophical zombies.
