Welcome, Major!

Major, a DJI Robomaster, looks at the viewer

A new robot takes up residence, and it's time to say hello.

Hello, Major!

Why Not, Indeed?

Not Okay, Not at All

Picture by AP with headline by Post: Flame-throwing drones incinerate hornets

Not the worst drone-related news, as that infamous distinction goes to the attack upon an Iranian nuclear scientist that supposedly involved an autonomous machine gun.

The title of this little blog entry might sound familiar, as I was recently introduced to the ideas of "No Justice, No Robots." That, itself, is a play on the name of the activist group, "No Justice, No Peace" and they all come together in one sad event at Google.

Ravens and Theory of Mind

HUGIN III, an Evo II, is one drone while MUNIN II, a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, is another

Hugin and Munin make appearances in two articles as two very different entities. Perhaps you already know the names come from Norse mythology. Myths tries to teach us what science now confirms.

Welcome, Hugin!

HUGIN III, an Evo II, is one drone shown flying against a clear blue sky.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Hugin, the third of its name, took to the air today in a successful test flight.

Celebrate!

Photograph of Charles H. Turner from 1902

One hundred years of progress stymied because of racism. The story of Charles Turner (b. 1867, died: 1923) is not just a tragedy of science way ahead of its time, but also the degradation of racism.

Drone safety awareness is fine, but what about drone self awareness?
