Jules, relieved, powers down

July 3, 2008

The people behind Jules have achieved something I would have thought impossible–they have made me feel embarrassed for a robot. I have watched this a few times now, and there are about four moments that make my knees cringe.

If I ever build a robot (hypothetical situation), remind me to program it to say lots of things about how great I am. Because, apparently, that’s completely acceptable.
