I sat down in my usual spot at Whole Foods to do some work while waiting for a friend. I threw on my shades right away because the sun was blinding me. Not even 60 seconds later the automatic shades came down! Damn Amazon, either your on top of shit and this is a taste of what utopia might be like, or you just want to make me nice and comfy while you siphon money out of my wallet... I'd say it's the ladder. 😂🤖
4 years ago I visited my maternal x2 great-grandmother's hometown in Latvia, and I paid an attendant so I could access this public bathroom. This year I'm back, gotta go, and it is now coin-operated. Is it weird that I was looking forward to paying a lady so I could pee? #onelessjob#therobotsarecoming#progress
Music geeks rejoice!
Featuring in upcoming exhibition 'Why future still needs us: AI and humanity, 'Doodle Tunes' lets you turn your drawings of musical instruments into actual music. A camera looks at your drawing, detects instruments you have drawn, and begins playing electronic music with those instruments.
Find out how it works and try it at #QUTArtMuseum from 20 August.

When it comes to flavor choices, the Froyo Robot can’t be beat. Each robot features a double-barrel soft-serve system which houses two core flavors and allows for a twist option. Customers however have the ability to choose up to seven different flavors and a twist through the addition of the Flavor Burst system that’s built into each Froyo Robot.

As fascinating as it is daunting, I'm loving this book. I wouldn't call it an easy read but it's making me think and I love that. Part of what I do is help organisations work more efficiently, help people to understand new ways of working, and the need to change. The thought of automation can be scary for some - but think of where we'd be if we didn't embrace technology! For me - Saturday being washing day, I wouldn't have time to be reading this book...I'd be rubbing my threads back and forth over an old school washboard and a bucket of suds. Automation may require less people to do the same tasks, but the upshot is that time saved in one place can result in time spent doing other more valuable stuff 👊🏻 #automation#artificialintelligence#ai#therobotsarecoming#embraceit#progress#change
Samuel Yates Street View by Samuel Yates. Sat 7/22 1-2pm. The slowest street view on the interwebs, powered by a talking human since 2001. You type a street name in the Facebook Live comments and Samuel Yates gives you a personal tour using his own 22,339 printed color specimens (photos) of every parcel in Palo Alto, California—archived in 556 file boxes, one for each street, tightly packed floor-to-ceiling inside the gallery—from before Amazon (2005), Microsoft (2006), and Google (2007) got in the game. First come, first served. Street names, paint, and details at http://www.samuelyates.com/ #theRobotsAreComing#nevermindTheRobotsAreHere#randomAccessMemory#archiveFeverDream#endlessObjects#theColorOfPaloAlto
Since its @lunaparkmelb gig in June, 'Scenic' has been wending its way up to Brisbane to be part of 'Machination', @cake_industries' new exhibition opening at #QUTArtMuseum on 20 August. It's a long walk!
Known as 'Cake Industries', Victorian regional artist duo Jesse Stevens and Dean Petersen create performative mechatronic sculptures. 'Machination' features animated public works which recently appeared inside the grounds of Luna Park Melbourne theme park and form part of Jesse and Dean's 'Voyages' series, as well as other performative and interactive out of time works.
Come and meet these surreal robotic sculptures in August!
