On February 20 I participated in a NASA “Social,” an event for space observers who tweet, blog, and otherwise electronically communicate to the world about what they see. I talked about the two robots we have in the National Air and Space Museum exhibition, “Moving Beyond Earth.” These include NASA’s Robonaut 1 and DARPA’s ARM cognitive robot. My comments were captured in the this article from Business Insider: “Space Robots Aren’t Even Close To Being As Capable As Humans.”
Among other things, I said: “We individually have a lot more capability than they do. We are a long way from the terminator, or the matrix.” Check out the full story here.
