    Most real robots stay in one place
    and handle VERY repetitive jobs
    as work passes by them.
    From Dr. Louis J. Gerstman, a neuropsychologist who was a co-inventor of the talking computer portrayed as HAL in the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey,"
    Dr. Gerstman cautioned about the role of computers. "There's a false sense of what computers can do," he said. "There's a major difference between playing chess and solving the problems of mankind. We don't want computers as decision makers."
