Robots, Computers – a view from the past

10 Feb

I listen to a lot of podcasts. One I like to check out from time to time is Rewind from the CBC. Each week Michael Enright reviews the CBC radio archive with a particular theme. I was delighted to here people like Isaac Asimov and Ted Nelson talking about Robots and Computers in the early days of the revolution that has already transformed society and is still in its early days.

Other highlights include the first flat screen TV (from 1970) and a cocktail-making robot.

Check it out in
