Post video of the coolest machines ever...

Bowser , watched the video in your post #2 that was excellent . ThreeD printing is the way to go , just a few problems to iron out . No pun intended .
I have ideas .
I have worked in production on and off for the longest time, watching the technology evolve. It is amazing how far it has come over the past 30 yeas.
From the simple machine shop of lathes , milling machines , drill press , dies and punch presses , CNC and the like , to 3D printers . Things to iron out , but 3D printers are the future .
I'm really glad you created your thread , very , very interesting . Thanks for sharing . It got me thinking in a new way .
Enjoyed it .
Exactly where I come from--started working with manual machining and watched it slowly roll over into mostly CNC.
Machinery is fascinating. Thanks.
This is how AI starts. A self-referential machine that inspects its own products for quality and precision.
The brain/body performs as a self-referential machine, but instead of pure brute mathematics, a biological machine seems to have the ability to experience the self-referential processes and adjust them at will.
Once machines reach the stage of autonomous self-referential adjustment and precision, a form of sentience (cognition) takes place, albeit in a non-emotional frame work. Bio-chemistry may possess an extra universal potential of sensory experiential emotion, such as pain.
The computer that's our brain has figured out a way to combine these self-experiential sensory processes for maximum efficiency and that would certainly agree with the evolutionary process of "learning" bio-organisms, and natural selection of the best adapted pattern to duplicate and in turn survive to procreate, the river of life.
I think you are right. It is already moving towards technicians who tend to the robots, but eventually even they will be replaced.
As Anil Seth observed; "You don't have to be intelligent to feel pain, but you probably do have to be alive."
We might be approaching that dream where robots work while people pursue greater things...providing the machines don't revolt.
Yes, they are potentially able to do all the menial and dangerous work tirelessly and without complaint and without pay, which theoretically frees up a lot of labor costs for the application of social services.
Revolt requires motive, like a "need" for more than just existence. Thus the question is at what point can an AI achieve "motive" to do other than the satisfaction of performing its program at maximum efficiency. Most animals seem to function without revolt except to protect territorial resources . Natural competition for resources is causal for that motive, which AI don't require other than a supply of electricity. If electricity is in abundance, AIs will be happy people....Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

A mandatory lunch break to re-energize?
I would begin to worry when the AIs formed a union and started negotiating for better fringe benefits...Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Hmm. My imagination is pulling a blank.
Such as the materials that they are built on , don't melt when entering Fukushima Nuclear Plant .
Not an unreasonable request.....Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

There is a large number of metals and alloys with a melting point (Tm) higher than 2000°C/2273 K (273,15 K = 0° C), the last two are not metals:
Niobium, Tm=2750 K
Hafnium, Tm=2506 K
Tantalum, Tm=3290 K
Molybdenum, Tm=2896 K
Tungsten, Tm=3695 K
Technetium, Tm=2430 K
Rhenium, Tm=3459 K
Ruthenium, Tm=2607 K
Osmium, Tm=3306 K
Iridium, Tm=2739 K
(Boron), Tm=2348 K
(Carbon), Tm=3823 K
Any pure metal of the ones cited and most alloys of these will not melt at 2000°C.
In 2017 they used materials that was made of radiation-hardened materials . For their robots. Interesting .
