The First Church of Robotics

The First Church of Robotics | Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
The concept of artificial intelligence clouds our view of the world.
The news of the day often includes an item about some development in artificial intelligence: a machine that smiles, a program that can predict human tastes in mates or music, a robot that teaches foreign languages to children. This constant stream of stories suggests that machines are becoming smart and autonomous, a new form of life, and that we should think of them as fellow creatures instead of as tools. But such conclusions aren’t just changing how we think about computers — they are reshaping the basic assumptions of our lives in misguided and ultimately damaging ways.

3-D printers may someday allow labs to create replacment human organs - The Washington Post

The machine looks like the offspring of an Erector Set and an inkjet printer.

The “ink” feels like applesauce and looks like icing. As nozzles expel the pearly material, layer by layer, you imagine the elaborate designs this device could make on gingerbread cookies.

But the goo is made of living cells, and the machine is “printing” a new body part.
