That Wired longread that I suggested yesterday, about Amazon’s warehouse robots really stuck with me for personal reasons you’ll hear in a second. I talked to the author of the piece, Matt Simon, not only cause I wanted more flavor on what it was like to work with these things, but because he also raises interesting ideas about human/robot symbiosis. In short, the robot apocalypse might still be coming, but not today. And for the foreseeable future, that might be the growth industry for humans: robot baby sitters. Please enjoy.
