Let's Redirect the Effort!

Well, by now you know that IBM built a computer they call "Watson," who was able to trample the two best Jeopardy players of all time. Wonderful. Great. Amazing. I'm sure there's a big demand out there for computers that can play Jeopardy.

I want to know when IBM will get serious about things? When are they going to develop a computer that will prepare my dinner, load the dishwasher and unload it, make my bed, and scrub the toilet?

I can't be the only person who would get much more excited about their accomplishment if that bunch of circuits could wash my floors.
An added bonus would be if it also could give me a lapdance, and maybe perform a few other domestic pursuits of a delicately personal nature!



So what do you say, IBM?  What are you waiting for?

Which would you prefer - Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons or Robot B-9 from Lost in Space?

Although I don't think either of them capable of a lapdance!

A lap dancing PC, now you're talking! They just haven't done their market research have they?

Brian Miller said...

you means your computer doesnt do that?

I'd be a bit worried about a lap dancing robot - what if it's circuits went a bit haywire and it launched into a John Travolta routine from 'Saturday Night Fever' However, scrubbing and cleaning - I'm all for it.

Wait -- you're laptop doesn't do those things?!

Well, I'm in line with you for the lap dance, for sure. As long as it's not that guy in the tidy whities you pictured. Lordy.

In the form of a question: "What is, imagine how sucky a computer would have to be that DIDN'T win on Jeopardy?"
@Ethel: A lap dancing robot would tickle my hard drive.
By the way: Rosie.

Ah, I think the problem is that too many of our computer programmers are male. They don't know how to do any of those things in the first place:)

I tried to use my Netbook to clean the toilets, but it only made funny fizzing noises.

Eva Gallant said...

RetiredandCrazy: I guess they haven't!!

Terri: You got something against tighty whiteys? lol

lakeviewer: Glad we agree!

I'mJane: Oh, no!

That "Jeopardy" show with "Watson" was very interesting. I want to know what kind of stipend Ken Jennings got to show up - even if it wasn't made public. After all, he knew he may lose to a computer.

Eva Gallant said...

Constant: I agree...they must have been paid a pretty good amount!
