‘I wonder why we still don’t have any humanoid robots. Is it because we model things incorrectly? Do we have bad computers or are most robots just designed for factory environments? Or do we just not want robots as part of our daily lives?

The interaction between man and machine is weak. We mostly just offload our problems to robots, providing them with mathematical models. I mean, no one wants to solve human problems with mathematical equations, and no one wants raise their child with just numbers, for example. I think that it’d be sensible to assess whether there are new and better ways for modelling robots, for example in education or psychology.’
