Abstract : We, computer scientists, have to increase human knowledge, e.g. help to better understand what is mechanical intelligence. We further have to contribute to generate good goods out of it. But we also have the duty to share this knowledge with everyone. To be sure that no one endure, whereas each one benefits from the derived technology. And we observe that the main challenge is : free people from preconception, misconception and prejudices about computers and robots. And the main enemy is “belief in artificial intelligence phantasms” ! To escape from such deleterious magic, creative computing with Scratch is our best friend, unplug activities our best lever and playful robotics our best partner. Let us tell it as a story..
