Robot Invasion: Can computers replace scientists? Can robots work as scientists? At first, this seems like a silly question. Computers are pervasive in science, and if you walk into a large university lab today, there’s a good chance you’ll find a fully fledged robot working alongside the lab-coat-wearing humans. Robots fill test tubes, make DNA microarrays, participate in archaeological digs, and survey the oceans. There are entire branches of science—climate modeling and genomics, for example—that wouldn’t exist without powerful microprocessors. Machines even play an integral part in abstract fields of discovery. Farhad Manjoo is a technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal and the author of True Enough.

Se avessi filmato le sue interviste di dieci anni fa, potremmo fare il giochino “Trova la differenza”. I giornalisti generalisti che incontrano il noleggio generalista sono uno spasso, almeno da cinquant’anni: “C’è una nuova tendenza, non si compra più, ma si noleggia… Oggi (oggi!) Eppure, mai come adesso, con un po’ di determinazione e chiarezza, l’opportunità di cambiare finalmente la testa degli italiani, privati o imprenditori, è così concreta. Il noleggio nel 2011: un’occasione sprecata? Il noleggio nel 2012: l’ultima spiaggia?
