"Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth"s surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid."  Bertrand Russell

(Seems to me automation/robotics is fast substituting for the first kind of work; hopefully humans will be telling robots what to do ?  Al )

However, this not to say that ideas should not be backed up by actions.Our frantic efforts in this direction should be sustained and would not be substituted by robotic ideas,but as complementary mechanisms for world peace. Thus, the two approaches go pari- pasu.

The link between idea and action is inseparable. Obviously, ideas inform actions, and in an era of Hi-tech/automation, brute "energy" would no longer be expended but, rather robots would be used to gain "mechanical advantage" in the penchant drive for world peace today.Use the "robot" and cause a Tsunami

The Crack-Up: Dwight Eisenhower & the Road Trip that Changed America, with Brian C. Black

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

How can artificial intelligence improve food security, medicine, and infrastructure in Arctic communities? What are some logistical, ethical, and governance challenges? Western Michigan's Professor Fritz Allhoff details the future of technology in this extreme environment, which is being made more accessible because of climate change. Plus he shares his thoughts on some open philosophical questions surrounding AI.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
