Along the lines of "five favorite aliens in sci-fi" (as seen below), how about five favorite robots/computational intelligences in sci-fi?

  1. Robot, on Lost in Space (the TV series).

  2. Ralph Numbers, in Software by Rudy Rucker.

  3. HAL 9000, from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  4. Robotic Maria, from Metropolis.

  5. Huey, Dewey, and Louie, from Silent Running.

One word: Bender
Mr Smith in "Period Piece" by J. J. Coupling (J. R. Pierce) is one of the two fictional characters I identify with most (tho I am not actually a robot myself).

Fix the link to "Lost In Space"...
