Thanks to my man Josh Salvi for calling my attention to this DrTechniko post on “How to Train Your Robot.” Pretty cool stuff. Check it out.
I especially agree with this statement from the blog:
“Learning how to program is going to be the most useful new skill we can teach our kids today. More than ever our lives depend on how smart we are when we instruct computers. They hold our personal data and they make decisions for us. They communicate for us and they are gradually becoming an extension of our brains. If we don’t learn programming as part of our childhood, we will never evolve. As the famous futurist, Ray Kurzweil, put it “The only second language you should worry about your kids learning is programming.”
Amen brothers and sisters.
