They're not clever though are they? Okay we have what used to be Boston Dynamics, but autonomy is missing. All this fear of AI, even the most advanced stuff, like AlphaGO, is just advanced pattern-matching. Even the algos in modern rendering pipelines, it's amazing what they can do, but there's no sentience, there's no hope for a general-purpose AI for decades i think, one of the main bottlenecks being power-efficient actuators, let alone intelligience.




Civilisation is a race between disaster and education ...

I thought I posted this, but it's a good perspective that isn't heard often enough

HOW HARD WILL THE ROBOTS MAKE US WORK?
https://www.theverge.com/2020/2/27/21155254/automation-robots-unemployment-jobs-vs-human-google-amazon

TL;DR. The problem isn't that robots will eliminate the low-level jobs, it's that they will inhabit the low-level management jobs and make life miserable for everyone on down the pike

Doesn't get much more "Terminator Scenario" than this:

"The thought of living tissue and machinery meshed together brings up images of grotesque cyborgs and far-future sci-fi films, but at the Army Research Laboratory a robot with living, organic muscles may not be that far off.

ARL’s Combat Capabilities Development Command is teaming up with universities in North Carolina to develop studies in bio-hybrid robotics.

The idea is just as fantastical as you may be imagining. ARL wants to fuse living tissue with cold metal to build robots that may be able to gain the agility and versatility of living creatures."

The Police Department will return the device earlier than planned after critics seized on it as a dystopian example of overly aggressive policing.

I can't imagine those things being very good at distinguishing between combatants and non-combatants.

Well, neither is napalm or nuclear weapons.
Exhibit A: Dresden and Tokyo
Exhibit B: Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Right.  Thankfully those weapons aren't used against urban guerrilla fighters often.

Here's the consumer version., minus the explosion bits.
