A Brief History of Robotics
“Every technology we develop is an extension of one of our own senses or capabilities.”
I recently had the pleasure of speaking alongside iconic Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood on a Science and Art panel at a conference called Discourse and Dynamics.
Aside from insightful discussions about the environment, hemp airplanes, and the importance of adaptability, we also discussed the history of robotics. I am so delighted to see this incredibly thoughtful piece in the New York Times titled ‘Are Humans Necessary’, Margaret Atwood on our Robotic Future.
