I think men are too stupid to build robots

Such tasks are made for intelligent women, men have the IQ of a caveman and should do the dirty work or play, ΄cause they΄re just
children with an adult body.
I predict that all important inventions of the future will be made by women, men are obsolete today.

Sometimes.
Ah HA! And what, exactly, is tinkering around with useless things, other than play? It's this perpetual childhood playfulness and curiosity that results in so many inventions and scientific discoveries by men. Women (in my experience) are practical. If they cannot see an advantage to doing something, they won't consider it. Men will do whatever comes to mind first. Thus you have Volta dangling severed frog legs outside during a thunderstorm. I'll grant you the fact that most playing around by men has absolutely zero value, but sometimes it pays off.

I must have missed a major event that reversed our roles, then. If the past is any indication, men will continue to tinker around with everything while women will stay focused on tasks at hand. Women will refine and implement new technology, but men will more or less blunder into the big discoveries. I honestly know very very few women in engineering who are in it mostly for the fun it of, rather than for the career opportunity.
Yes, I fed the troll. I felt like it. ;-)

Although in this case, there is no sex in line as far as we know.
Maybe "newsgroup" sex? ;-)

"Makeup sex?" What's that? My ex loved to fight to get attention, but there was NO MAKEUP SEX! (Sigh) Ripped off again!

Why should the future be any different to the past? Look around you and practically every you see was invented by a man...

well..., After a long day in the lab, I need a warm meal and a beer. Having a woman to bring them to me improves my work. Therefore women do deserve some credit. :) Let the arrows fly...

The story of Frankenstien, or of robotics, is one of womb-envy. ;-)

How do you figure that? Do you know who the author of Frankenstien was? No womb envy there.

The 'story' of Dr. Frankenstien and his creation was one of a man wanting to create life. In a discussion of Young Frankenstien the filmmaker, Mel Brooks, made the comment that it is a story about womb-envy. Since women have wombs where human life is created a short description of men's desires to create life though engineering is womb-envy. Sure Mary Shelly was not suffering from womb-envy, but the character she created sure was. (And, I did use a smiley. ;-)
Maybe a better response to this thread would be the question, are robots too stupid to build men, or just not stupid enough? ;-)

Jeff, you may have a good point there. At one time in the past, when New Micros, Inc. was in its start up phase, I worked very long hours. Many people told me to slow down and relax. I wondered if olympic atheletes are told by their friends to relax? Are concert violinists told to relax? And are mothers ever told to ignore their children and relax?
So I came on the idea of finding a suitable motherhood book. Copy it, replacing all reference to "mother" with "entrepreneur" and "child" with business. I'm sure it would be the kind of revealing hit that would make the best seller lists as a tremendous insight into the minds of men, bent on the power of "creating" their companies or projects, with the same intensity that mothers have for their children.

After investing a decade of time and money to produce custom chips for AI and robotics I borrowed the term 'mind children' from Hans Morovec and refered to the chips as my children. When I heard Mel Brooks make the joke about 'womb envy' as a description of the story of Dr. Frankenstien and his obsession with creating life it resonated with me. I suppose the idea does also resonate with anyone going through all the effort to take something from a mere idea and give birth to it and nurture its development.
BTW. You have some really nice new products at New Micros. I hope other people have checked out your website to see their new options.
Best Wishes

Maybe, but I read it more as an attack on people who don't have the guts to take responsibility for what they've made.

Sure, but he was also a coward. The "monster" probably would've turned out just fine if Victor hadn't've abandoned him just because he thought the creature was ugly.
Whether that's what Mary Shelley had in mind is another story.

Only if we abandon the silos and stop learning to love the bomb.

It is most commonly thought that it was a morality play on "hubris". I think that we have lots of "monsters" running loose these days...
No matter how much things change, they remain the same. Perhaps wisdom is not something that can mature in mere thousands of years.
