Wildcat and BigDog?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE3fmFTtP9g In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2 20131006 08:33:59

Re: Wildcat and BigDog?From somewhere: "The factory of the future will be staffed with a man and a dog. The man's job is to feed the dog. The dog's job is to keep the man away from the machines."

Re: Wildcat and BigDog?
The one task that man is perfectly suited for. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20131007 12:10:22
Re: Wildcat and BigDog?The man feel feed the dog in what way exactly? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #10 20131007 12:13:27

Re: Wildcat and BigDog?Man is the only creature obsessed with wiping himself out. The automation they are planning on is the major reason the entire US workforce is out of a job. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Wildcat and BigDog?I agree, bobbym. However, I look at it slightly differently. Extinction for us will probably be from a lazy researcher who says "whoops." #13 20131204 19:40:39
Re: Wildcat and BigDog?
Typical. They told us that at least the prices would plummet when we lost out jobs or took pay cuts. Guess what? They didn't. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
