Help! Help! The robots are coming!

It must be a slow news week, since the NY Times has found space to report on yet another conference where grown men and women who call themselves scientists have gotten their knickers in a twist worrying about machines becoming smarter than humans and displacing the entire workforce. 

How absurd.  First, I have a set of car keys that’s at least as smart as that person who spoke before the Santa Cruz city council, so that "smarter than humans" thing is ancient history (at least in robot time).  Second, if I can get a robot that shows up sooner and charges less than the local plumbers to clear a blocked toilet drain, I’m voting for the robots.  Until then, youse eggheads need to STFU.

Tip from the Instapundit.
