And some robots are already lashing out at people; For example:

10 Scariest A.I. Robot Moments


And some of the younger robot attackers are probably gaming addicts. playing some games where
a robot or robot army has to be beaten to win.

Then again maybe some are afraid of what is already happening........

I'm fond of this vid when someone decided to see what would happen if Will Smith tried to chat up Sophia

The following is not only informative, speculative and interesting - but near the end mystical and postulates
some really interesting possibilities........

Cassie the robot loves snow!

THIS IS NOT a story about how the polar vortex is bad—bad for the human body, bad for public transportation, bad for virtually everything in its path. This is a story about how one being among us is actually taking advantage of the historic cold snap: Cassie the bipedal robot. While humans suffer through the chill, this trunkless pair of ostrich-like legs is braving the frozen grounds of the University of Michigan, for the good of science.

“When we saw the announcement for the polar vortex, we started making plans to see how long we could operate in that kind of weather,” says roboticist Jessy Grizzle. “We were going to tie a scarf on her just so it looked cute, but we decided people would think that was keeping her warm and affecting the experiment, so we didn't.”

Scarves aside, this is vital research for a future in which robots tackle not just polar vortices but any number of other brutal environments. ...

I just had to prove to Twitter that I wasn't a Robot. Fooled them!

Anyway, in this case the doctor using the robot lacks human empathy.

A doctor in California told a patient he was going to die, using a robot with a video-link screen.

Ernest Quintana, 78, was at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont when a doctor - appearing on the robot's screen - informed him that he would die within a few days. A family friend wrote on social media that it was "not the way to show value and compassion to a patient".

The hospital says it "regrets falling short" of the family's expectations. Mr Quintana died the next day.

Like so many stories today that are meant to trigger outrage (OUTRAGE! :willy:OUTRAGE!), there's more to the story, and it turns out the story is not really outrageous. Other reports are that this family had already had a face-to-face conversation with a real live doctor about their grandfather's imminent end-of-life. Just another bunch of self-absorbed drama queens craving attention. I despair.

That is all very well but what about Twitter thinking that I was a robot?

The robots will also use their death rays on apple scrumpers.

YOUR APPLES MAY SOON BE PICKED BY LASER-SHOOTING ROBOTS

A BOWL OF salad is a beautiful collection of human ingenuity. The lettuce requires its own specialized agricultural process, as do the tomatoes, as do the garbanzo beans. Then comes the simple act of pulling these ingredients out of the ground, a challenge our dextrous human hands complete with ease. As for robots? Not so much.

This is why roboticists are creating crop-specific machines to harvest fruits and veggies. There’s the robot that harvests lettuce with a knife made of water. Now comes the apple-picking robot, a metallic farmer that just graduated from R&D and won a job in a New Zealand orchard. Its deployment may be limited at the moment, sure, but it’s a glimpse at a future in which hyper-specialized robots help feed our growing species.
The robot (it’s thus far nameless, in case you were wondering), developed by a company called Abundant Robotics, navigates the rows between apple trees using lidar, which paints the world with lasers, and images the fruits with machine vision.

I see that those warehouse robots will apparently still need people around to put the labels on things and paint lines on the floor, oh and to use those pump-up pallet trucks to move the stuff around too.

Thankfully they haven't given them guns yet.
What's that?.....They HAVE?!
We are indeed doomed, lol.

Do you really want to be up to date on what's happening now?

First this published last year in Inventions World:


Notice the video said the robot is powered by a battery?

Most robots are still so powered - But the in crowd secret is a group of 'underground scientists'
working in the sex bot industry have almost perfected robots, both male and female, that are
powered by sexual energy - The more sex they have, the more energy and power they put out.

Needless to say these machines can be quite dangerous almost like succubi or incubi from
occult mythology, they literary suck the energy and life out of normal Humans.

Still nothing can stop scientific progress and you can expect these machines to be available soon.
- Though it will be a black market device.

Reminds me of this:

We are The Borg


As stated, resistance is futile - In fact as inferior Humans you are creating us as machines
to serve you !!!! LOL !!!!!

Is that like 'orgone' energy? Hmmmmmm.

Not quite - More like 'orgasm' energy - a real and measurable energy source, if you can harness
and store it - Supposedly Hindu yogis have techniques to do so.

Seriously though, as I said before, the sex bot industry where sex and profit are in play
may in the not too distant future, as they try to perfect the 'touchy-feely' sensations of
biological Humans - They may make significant contributions to the development of genuine
lifelike androids - Robots that appear to be Human and alive, and can interact as though
conscious and alive.

And you can see where that will go - 'Robot Rights' groups are sure to follow.

How would you go about measuring it and storing it?
In years past weren't they into that? - I mean sex scientists measuring Human reactions, etc., etc.
during sex acts.

If we are going to create an android with life like reactions and reactions - We are talking about
Human like - then all reactions of Humans must be duplicated in a non-biological entity.

Some will speculate that sex will be the most difficult - but the significance of machines
duplicating Human sex should not be underestimated - complex though it might be.

Sure they already have auto-erotic devices - But we're taking about interactive artificial intel
- I say, and speculate that interactive minds will follow.

Of course your asking how to measure and store the actual energy released during sex
- elementary, if you can measure foot pounds and horsepower - You can measure sex power.

And where am I going with this? - Into the future - And where that leeds is open to speculation
- I speculate that the next stage in biological Evolution is Non-biological.

Biology has too many flaws and weaknesses and thousands, if not millions of years. of Evolution
has not solved the problem.

The SuperConscious Android is the next stage in the Evolving Human in the evolving Universe.

“Power”, “foot” and “ horse” are terms frequently used by women in assessments of my sexual prowess.
