I find it a bit comical. When technology and necessity forces us to change a ritual we start by imitating what we currently do as closely as possible, sometimes to the level of absurdity. It may take a while, but eventually the ritual will be changed, probably bit by bit, until it suits the new circumstances. I would not be surprised to see the graduation ceremony be simplified to where a video with presenter awards the degrees to the graduates verbally while an image of the degree/certificate and the recipient are shown.

If the robot is going to be on TV to get the diploma and credit, then why can't I just send the robot to class (ersatz erco) from day one for my entire my college education??!! I can just stay home for 4 years in sweatpants eating Doritos.
