“Computers are beginning to grow wheels and roll around in the environment"
Here's an interesting article in the NY Times about the use of robots in medicine. My favorite quote, besides the one above, "For now, most of the mobile robots, sometimes called telepresence robots, are little more than ventriloquists’ dummies with long, invisible strings. But some models have artificial intelligence that lets them do some things on their own, and they will inevitably grow smarter and more agile. They will not only represent the human users, they will augment them." Augment humans...what a nice way to put it.
