Humanoid robot F.E.D.O.R., set to fly into space in 2021, is now capable of shooting using both of his arms, according to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.


Russian Humanoid Robot 'Fedor' Learns to Shoot Using Both Arms

Why would Russia build a robot capable of shooting firearms in space?

According to Rogozin, training to shoot is a way of teaching the robot to instantaneously prioritize targets and make decisions.


“We are not creating a terminator but artificial intelligence which will have a great practical importance in various fields,” he added.

sputniknews.com...
So, the Russians build a humanoid robot to work alongside astronauts, that's capable of "prioritizing targets", shoot firearms, but they're not creating a "terminator." Well, here's a picture of F.E.D.O.R.

Oh, it's going to be able to pilot it's own spacecraft too!

"The unmanned launch and autonomous flight of our new spacecraft will take place in 2021. … It is expected, and all relevant decisions have already been made, that robot Fedor will be the first pilot," Yevgeny Mikrin, Roscosmos general designer of the manned spacecraft, said.

Well, if it looks like a terminator and acts like a terminator.....it's a terminator!

Looks like a shotgun would disable that robot. A shot to the neck would take it out too.

Paintballs hitting the cameras would blind it.

Agreed, I don't think it's a Cyberdine Systems T1000.

But that's not the concern, is it? It's that the slope has started. How many steps until automated soldiers? Until autonomous soldiers? Self=aware AI? Technological singularity?

This is a small step. But many small steps make a journey, and I personally think it's a journey that few understand the dangers of.

That's going to be fun to watch.

I wonder how they handled the recoil from the guns.

Remember folks.

There is no gravity in space.

Over reaction to a publicity shot by the sadly behind the tech ruskies.

If I was confronted by that robot I would unplug it.......!!!!!!! Notice the cable at the back!!!!!!

Where is the video of this robot "in the field" shooting dummy targets ?

I've seen the videos of Boston Dynamics robots walking and running without cables over various terrains (spooky wobbles) and opening doors etc. And that's just the tech they want us to know about which is way way ahead of anything out of Russia.

All I know is that I would not be the idiot standing in front of the line of fire holding a camera when said robot has two pistols in its hand...with its fingers on the triggers, no less.

All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again.

Good point, for sure...maybe just bolt him to the sides of a space vehicle and have automatic stabilizers on the vehicle itself. If they added a propulsion system to that robot, I get the feeling that it would double in size, at least.

Well, they are trying to give AI human rights, so once that is accomplished, it will be a murder charge for shooting a robot.

Honestly, I'm thinking Ti99-4A, actually.

Funny. Seems like we continue to restrict human rights from the actual humans, but now we're trying to give them to robots?

Sorry - I guess I'm a little cynical today!

Must be one of those days when you can't lie to comfort others. What you are saying is actually true.

Kneejerk reaction:


Upon actually seeing the robot:


But after the koolaid kicks in:


(I'm guessing the F.E.D.O.R. is named after the Sambo & MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko)

We gave them to the planet, and corporations.

Why can't robots have rights!
