The rise of the robots is here! When they start to equip robots with machine intelligence and they connect all robots to sort of a collective consciousness where they can share information and learn from each other, game over. Human will have to become cyborgs in order to share and access information instantly with just thoughts.


To be perfectly frank, we have very mixed emotions about the video you’re about to watch. Is this how it begins? The robots trick us into letting our guard down by acting all cute and playful. Then the next thing you know, bam! Skynet becomes sentient and we’re battling real-life Terminators.

OK, maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves a bit. Instead of panicking, let’s all just sit back, relax, and watch this adorable video of Google’s robot dog “Spot” playing with a real dog. Isn’t it cute? Aren’t they having so much fun together? Yup, this is exactly what the robots want…


news.yahoo.com...

I don't think there's need to panic because there isn't anything that we can do about this. The only way this gets stopped if there's some world war or major catastrophe that stops progress. The cat is out of the bag and he's not going back in.

Doesn't look to me like the "real" dog is playing with the robot dog.
Looks more like he would like to attack it.

Good to know the dogs won't be fooled.

LOL

Ummm..actually the dudes just controlling robomutt with a game controller...it's just a glorified RC atv...

I got the prescription: wait until battery dies and beat the crap out of it, and to look like assasination, cut all the hydraulics afterwards. Same stands for the guy with controlers, except for hydraulics.

Isn't that a guy remote controlling the robot? why is this any different than an RC toy, scaled up?

No major difference, except for this thing can overcome some obstacles.
Put them on rocky terrain, and see their circuits and processors go fried.

What?

Of course he can control them when they want to. I hope all of them come with some sort of kill switch where they can be manually taken over.

If you have been watching these things, this is just another step in the way these Robots can move. Here the way it's progressing:



If you look at the video, it shows you how they're progressing with each step.

So it's very different when you look at the progress they have made and not just these 2 videos in isolation.

People also have to realize that Google is making leaps and bounds when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. It's not a stretch of the imagination to think that perhaps, someday, the technologies will merge.

Yeah... This is the stuff horror movies are made off...



At the beginning of the movie they're all cute and cuddly until one starts to think for himself. Next thing we know there's blood and guts everywhere and we have to send in The Governator in a last attempt to save humanity.

Just in case: Let me the first to welcome our new masters... I just want to state for the record that I was rooting for you from the beginning...

ah but it's only a hop, skip and a jump 'til that interface is bypassed. it will happen, sooner than we thought possible. autonomous robots are not an if, they are a when. in the black projects world i have no doubt whatsoever they are already a now.

Ummm...yeah...I realize that also...it gives me mixed feelings

On the one hand...I love robots...on the other there's way too many nefarious uses for them...

This whole race to be the first to attain singularity is specious in my mind...all it sounds like to me is that programming will simulate intelligence through code written to imitate human behavioral characteristics...

This singularity...raises a question in my mind...how will one be able to determine if such equates consciousness...or just software simulating a conscious state with convinced and convincing programming...?


Edit to add:...Will it be a case of...I think therefore I am...or...I am therefore I think....?

Would they use the Asimov laws of robotics?

I almost start to feel sad for that robot to be bullied around , if they made it look more huggable, I probably would want to see rights for robots. .

Where not far from the first house robot , and the ones who will fill in jobs ..

If you watched 1984 Terminator (the first one), you'll see the human resistance used dogs to spot T-800's passing off as humans.

Also in 1991 Terminator Judgement Day, the GS dog barked furiously with the T-1000 around.


Unfortunately, Google's "robo dog" is not a robot, it is remote controlled. You can see the operator sometimes appearing in the foreground, manipulating a gamepad-looking controller.

You said it...


Will YOUR job still exist in 2025? New report warns 50 per cent of occupations will be redundant in 11 years time


But experts now believe that almost 50 per cent of occupations existing today will be completely redundant by 2025 as artificial intelligence continues to transform businesses.
A revolutionary shift in the way workplaces operate is expected to take place over the next 10 to 15 years, which could put some people's livelihoods at risk.


It's foolish to think that this won't happen. The advancements in both hardware and software for robotics is astonishing. The more you look into it, the more you'll see that it's coming quick.

I find it very interesting that there seems to be more of a push towards "Basic Income" all over the world. Perhaps it's unrelated to the advancements in Robotics, perhaps not. It makes sense though, as jobs are completely eliminated more and more people will be scrambling for options that just might not be available. Homelessness is a huge problem currently, it'll be an epidemic if half the available jobs vanish, and that's not something that can be tolerated.

The stage is now set for a basic income for all


A basic income can take different forms but it is generally understood to ensure everyone an income that is sufficient to meet their basic needs, regardless of work status. This kind of income support enables seniors in Canada to live better lives and keep contributing to society and the economy. It has also improved the lives of working-age families with children for many years. It is now time to cover those left out — the working-age adults who are also family, friends and neighbours in the communities where our children and grandchildren are growing up.

Because it is also autonomous. I believe due to the dog being involved they wanted human control to avoid any accidents.

The real dog wants to play, keeps getting into the "let's play" stance, but the driver of the machine doesn't get it.

Stupid human.

I couldn't help but visualize Robo shooting a laser beam out it's head, vaporizing the pesky lil dog barking at him. Yeah, I know I'm twisted.
