Daily Thoughts 3/20/2011

I filled out a survey of our collection. I also wrote a short report on what was being done in the library.

This evening, I read some more of Michio Kaku, The Physics of the Future.  Michio Kaku is writing about robots and artificial intelligence.  One of the topics he touches on is the singularity where robots become smarter than humans.  He also describes how people are working on robots that are designed to fit in with human society in a benevolent way.  It is all very utopian.
