“A physical task becomes a visual display, and then a cognitive task. What once required strength now requires attention, patience, quick reactions.”
David A. Mindell, Our Robots, Ourselves: Robotics and the Myths of Autonomy

David A. Mindell, Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight

“robots are “only one software upgrade away” from full autonomy, as Scientific American has recently argued.”
David A. Mindell, Our Robots, Ourselves: Robotics and the Myths of Autonomy
