"To get anywhere, or even live a long time, a man has to guess, and guess right, over and over again, without enough data for a logical answer."
- Robert Heinlein

Robant  
  A robotic servant.  

Behind Norton came a withered old woman. Beside her moved a gleaming robant, a towering robot servant, supporting her with his arm. The robant and the tiny old woman entered the control room slowly...

"Irma Vincent Gordon," Andrews murmured. He glanced up. "Is that right?"

The old woman did not move.

"She is totally deaf, sir," the robant said.
