I took my new Sony 24-70 2.8 GMaster lens out on our first date last night, and the glowing skyline of Rosslyn, reflecting on the Potomac, set quite the romantic mood.

The Battle of the Somme resulted in a million casualties, the worst single battle of a foolish and unnecessary war that had terrible consequences.

What people rarely understand is that robotics doesn’t necessarily produce a net loss in human jobs. One of my colleagues helped develop the Kiva robots, which eventually became the basis of Amazon’s logistic centers. He explained that the original appeal of robots was that they would reduce the human labor workforce. That never happened. What did happen was that the robots massively improved the productivity of each human, allowing Amazon to scale operations. No human was ever fired — in fact, more humans were hired.

The same thing was true for my work with military robots.
