Let’s Laugh at Robots!

Daniel Fraga
March 3rd 2016

This video makes us laugh at how clumsy robots can be. As silly and infantile as they look, we might as well be laughing at the mischief of toddlers. Yet, to laugh at them is to anthropomorphize them. It is, in a way, to look at robots as if they had human characteristics. But in the end, these fails remind us that robots are still a long ways off.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
