The ability of science and technology to improve human life is known to us.
When the cost of recording all the data is zero, the cost of processing it is zero, and the cost of accessing it zero, then the many sciences, especially human health, will be democratized.
So, spare me your cute robots with human names.
But that's because I would be sharing the experience with another human being, and human beings form connections with other human beings.

We must also excuse Hippocrates for his belief that the human body is composed of four basic substances called "humors" that must be kept in balance.
In 1543, Andreas Vesalius published On the Fabric of the Human Body, which corrected errors from antiquity and advanced the medical sciences.
As a stranger to human affection, he'd never quite gotten used to her hugs.
She stared at him through listless eyes, the gaze of a human awaiting only the final step in the transformation process.

With these terms in mind, consider this observation: For the better part of human history, as people have sought to understand their world, an extensive amount of their time has been spent collecting or retrieving data.

Absolute continuity of motion is not comprehensible to the human mind.
This modern branch of mathematics, unknown to the ancients, when dealing with problems of motion admits the conception of the infinitely small, and so conforms to the chief condition of motion (absolute continuity) and thereby corrects the inevitable error which the human mind cannot avoid when it deals with separate elements of motion instead of examining continuous motion.
