I finished my re-read of The Caves of Steel last night, and now today I’ll be engaged in a marathon review writing session for this week’s reviews of Caves of Steel and vN. Here are some links to keep you company till then.
- The Nov 1 episode of Spark on CBC Radio featured two interviews that touched on robots and gender stereotypes – one on how people react to short-haired robots vs. long-haired robots, and one on how AI development may be affected by the male-dominated technology sector.
- Think your job couldn’t be replaced by a robot? Well, it can. But don’t worry, here are jobs that robots will never take away from us.
- It was Carl Sagan Day yesterday. Hope you made an apple pie from scratch and wondered at the fragility of Earth and the potential of humanity in the universe.
- Sarah Moglia at Skepchick writes: Women Rock at History, Men Steal the Credit.
The title of this post is taken from Sunny Moraine’s blog, A Trick of Light. I’ll be using it for my linkdumps going forward.
