Comment: Frustrating (Score 1) 63 63

It must be annoying to have devoted a big part of your life to playing chess, only to have someone say "Well, we built this robot who can kick your ass in five minutes." I think when robots are better at my job than I could be, I would start to question the meaning of my life. Its worthy of an Ishiguro novel, or I guess, under the circumstances, a Dostoevsky.

Its really easy to make judgements about the "average person." I'm genuinely annoyed by this sentiment that the general public are a bunch of uneducated slobs. A lot of scientists act like they're almost burdened with their vast superiority. Keeping in mind, of course, that I am a scientist and these judgements I making are primarily about the people I work with. Also, I openly admit that my statements have not been rigorously tested or confirmed.
