The grim, violent efficiency of this machine is terrifying. lol. Imagine if it was sentient.

There are really some amazing things being done with robotics right now.  I think this part of the century we are taking our advances in communications and computing and starting to make practical more physical use of that power.

Driverless tractors. This ad plays like one of those fictionalized industrial commercials you see in futuristic movies like Robocop and T2.

Couldn't decide which video to post, so here's the channel for everyone to check out on their own: https://www.youtube..../BostonDynamics

 

These robots are pretty sophisticated, and can handle serious abuse by their builders, including keeping their balance when kicked over, and getting back up when falling.  Bipedal, quadruped, and wheeled - all are pretty cool.

I can't embed this, but it's hilarious.  Not sure what the security settings are on my friend's post, so I hope this can be seen.  lol

I'm sure that's still better than a lot of people who actually drive.  Massholes anyone?

No this isn't one of those fake ads from the movie RoboCop.

What is the purpose of an average security guard?

 

  • A set of eyes and someone who will call the cops. 
  • A visible presence to possibly deter criminal violence and shoplifting (face it, mostly shoplifting, they are to protect them, not us)
  • An access point guard (you may pass, you may not)
  • A recorder of various pieces of information/statistics

 

Robotics, with some bits of AI (not even really necessary) can handle most of this.  The problem is generally that a robot is considered property and not a living being.  A criminal who would not harm life nor limb might harm the robot to disable it since it's non-living.  So legislation should be changed to define a new state, disabling or destroying a security robot carries a higher penalty than say breaking a window or camera.  Could work.
