NewsThe Robot-Readable World PinstaffTerrence Dorsey9-Jul-13 12:16 
I drew a parallel between the Apple Newton’s sophisticated, complicated hand-writing recognition and the Palm Pilot’s approach of getting humans to learn a new way to write, i.e. Graffiti. The connection I was trying to make was that there is a deliberate design approach that makes use of the plasticity and adaptability of humans to meet computers (more than) half way. Connecting this to computer vision and robotics I said something like: "What if, instead of designing computers and robots that relate to what we can see, we meet them half-way – covering our environment with markers, codes and RFIDs, making a robot-readable world".
I have to believe this is a subtle ruse by SkyNet to help move things along.
