Show 55 – Robotics Expert Daniel Wilson

Robotics Expert Daniel Wilson gets a call from the ATS MIX Team to find out where their Jet-Paks are. They also find out how close we might be from a "T-3 Terminator" actually existing. Military applications, Medical applications and civilian applications are all brought to life in this interview. Who says these robotics guys don't have a sense of humor?

Great stuff! I really enjoyed the interview, never heard of the guy before, but an interesting interview nonetheless. Keep em' coming guys! Pity you couldn't get Steven Greer in for an interview.

Now i'd have a few questions to ask him

Great show guys.

The topic of artificial intelligence is as amazing as it is scary. I also think those robots in the movie I Robot look very realistic. On the topic of letting computers make decisions, I have an interesting story to tell.

I'm an electronics engineer and I read somewhere that a research team designed a board of programmable chips and wrote a program for the computer to be able to program them and find the optimum way to solve a problem. The board had a microphone on one end for input and a speaker as the output and it was assigned to duplicate a particular tone. Well the program tried several things and went through like 100 generations until it evolved to complete the task, and when they traced out the path on how it was able to create the sound, they couldn't understand how it worked.

Right now some computers have the ability to repair themselves if some part goes bad, it reprograms itself to use a different circuit. I envision that soon, we won't be writing the computer programs. We will just tell a computer what to do and it will write the program it needs to do the work.

If you want to do another show on future tech, you should ask William Shatner who did a special on the History Channel a while back called Star Trek Tech. The show covered things like the communicators in the show are what inspired cell phones and things like that.

Self correcting computers are not that far away. There are self-diagnostic IC chips already in exsistance that can effectively re-route signals from one path to another with additional circuits and software.

But to have a complete self contained unit that can self correct and repair without any additional help of circuits or software, that would be indeed something impressive.
