Uh, Woodsghost, I owe you an apology. I am facing some personal challenges ATM, and those challenges are effecting me in ways I couldn't predict. I never should have taken my frustrations out on you or on the ZS forums. I was wrong. I ask for your forgiveness.


No apology necessary. It was clear you are going through a lot. I hope the dust settles soon and you find yourself on your feet. I went through some stuff and it hit me hard mentally. It took me a few years to find my feet again. I know people in your area are going through a lot. Thank you for explaining.

I do really appreciate your response.

I'd rather serve robots than goats.

There's some logic to robots....

You want fries with that?

Robot burger-flipper takes quintessential "entry-level" job.

No doubt they will have one for the french fries before you know it.

Prototype pilot program now in operation... scheduled to be rolled out to the rest of the chain in 2 years.

You still need a "kitchen manager" to tend the robots and do the things they aren't programmed for... but for every 3-4 robots you only need one manager. Instead of 4-5 people working the kitchen.

What do you think those former burger-flippers will do for work now? Whatever it is, they just increased the competition for all those entry-level jobs.

BEHOLD... THE DRIVE THRU T.V. DINNER

edit to add... that deserves a song

T.V. Dinners
ZZ Top
TV dinners there's nothin' else to eat
TV dinners they really can't be beat
I like 'em frozen but you understand
I throw 'em in and wave 'em and I'm a brand new man oh yeah!
TV dinners they're goin' to my head
TV dinners my skin is turnin' red
Twenty year old turkey in a thirty year old tin
I can't wait until tomorrow.... and thaw one out again oh yeah!
TV dinners I'm feelin' kinda rough
TV dinners this one's kinda tough
I like the enchiladas and the teriaki too
I even like the chicken if.... the sauce is not too blue.
And they're mine, all mine, oh yeah
And they sure are fine.
Gotta have 'em
Gimme somethin' now.

sigh.
I should have known better than to try to be serious in this thread.
Perhaps it should go in Off Topic, as it seems to be a joke thread.

I will bow out of it, never fear.

Yea , I'm sure the burger restaurant companies will pass the savings from employee cost reduction on to the consumers. Right? Because otherwise that would make the persons who buy their food, tools

Henry Ford wasn't the first person to invent the automobile, but he was the first person to apply "Tune-Ups" to his workers.

The buggers are already plotting! :)


https://www.afp.com/en/news/2265/robots ... -tech-show

It was a spooky sight: two lifelike disembodied robot torsos discussing the pros and cons of humans in front of a nervously tittering audience in Hong Kong Wednesday.

Artificial intelligence is the dominant theme at this year's sprawling RISE tech conference at the city's harbourfront convention centre, but the live robot exchange took the AI debate to another level.

Handsome male humanoid Han, dressed in a pinstripe suit jacket, and his elegant sister Sophia, modelled on Audrey Hepburn, chatted onstage about life in the universe and everything, from their love of science fiction to their bewilderment at "silly" reality shows.

While chief scientist Ben Goertzel of Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, which invented the machines, sang their praises, the robots seemed more sceptical of their human peers.

When Goertzel asked the duo whether robots could really be moral and ethical, Han countered: "Humans are not necessarily the most ethical creatures".

The robot later pointed out: "In 10 or 20 years, robots will be able to do every human job."

A gentler Sophia conceded that humans do have "some ability to reflect and self-modify".

She insisted her aim was to work together with people, before Han "joked" he thought the robots' goal was to take over the world.

The machines had been programmed to banter and learn from each other, and had been trained to act like humans from movies and YouTube, said Goertzel.

Their malleable skin is controlled by dozens of motors, while computers in their torsos help with vision and movement. They can also connect to wifi to use cloud computing, where they will eventually share a vast amount of knowledge, Goertzel said.

Robots could be "as smart as people" in as little as three years, he predicted.

According to robot mastermind David Hanson, CEO and founder of Hanson Robotics, the machines' onstage repartee was only part scripted and is just a taste of things to come.

He said he wanted them to "emotionally engage" with people -- Sophia has already graced the cover of fashion magazines, sung at pop concerts and appeared on television talk shows.

"This is a kind of character animation that can come to life in our world," Hanson told AFP.

Robots would be able to work with humans in factories, customer service and medicine but would also become our friends, said Hanson, who did not rule out eventual robot-human romantic relationships.

"As the AI matches and exceeds human levels of intelligence we hope they'll help us solve the world's great problems," he added.

However, Hanson acknowledged there were fears over what the future could hold.

"There's reasonable speculation that if we don't build machines that really care, they'll have motives of their own," he said, adding that it was important to openly discuss how to develop AI that is "inherently safe and good and caring".

This thread always makes me recall some old comic books I read a long time ago.

I don't think that human physical strength has kept pace with machine strength so we'll need some sort of exoskeleton to fight robots.

Might as well throw in the ability to fly

Your strategy of using the computer controlled exoskeleton to fight robots may have a critical flaw.

So they said 20, 30, 40 years ago.
