Summary
It was when I was preparing this lecture that I discovered that roboticists had a god: Hephaestus. In Greek mythology, Hephaestus was a talented craftsman. Enamoured with Athena, he attempted to woo her, in vain. The goddess of knowledge withstood the advances of the god of doing. Robotics stems from this tension. Although the myth contradicts a current tendency to confuse science and technology, it nevertheless reflects my experience with innovation. C'est en préparant cette leçon que j'ai découvert que les roboticiens avaient un dieu : Héphaïstos. Dans la mythologie grecque, Héphaïstos est un artisan de talent. Séduit par Athéna, il tente de la posséder mais n'y parvient pas : la déesse du savoir résiste au dieu du faire. La robotique tient de cette tension. Si le mythe va à l'encontre d'une tendance actuelle à la confusion des genres entre science et technologie, il rend néanmoins compte de mon expérience en matière d'innovation
