Robots at UCLA RoMeLa

 

 

Some points I liked:

Around 21:00-22:00 “Sometimes we have a specific application in mind…
Sometimes you randomly have an interesting idea that has no purpose and no application… Then these ideas which had no values find an application.”

My comment: This is exactly what Mathematical research is about. You prove a theorem that has no application. Then you find an application.

Around 26:50 We have so many ideas that do not work.

and

Around 27:40 Failure is not necessarily a bad thing. If we can avoid failure, we do…
We have ten times more failures and all these failures gave us the chance to learn about things, and this lead to our successes.

My comment: This is exactly the same in Mathematical research too. Most ideas do not work, but you learn from them and modify them to work.

Around 29:40 Many times (the students) do not get to build the robots, but they do the Math!
