Facebook, too, I hope. Sounds like a great way to cull the herd.  Forum-dwellers will inherit the earth.

At least once they kill us all they'll tidy the bloodbath up after themselves...

it has begun...

A rogue robot is blamed for a human colleague’s gruesome death

Quote
On March 7, her husband, William Holbrook, filed a wrongful death complaint (pdf) in Michigan federal court, naming five North American robotics companies involved in engineering and integrating the machines and parts used at the plant: Prodomax, Flex-N-Gate, FANUC, Nachi, and Lincoln Electric. Holbrook's job involved keeping robots in working order. She routinely inspected and adjusted processes on the assembly line at Ventra, which makes bumpers and trailer hitches. One day, Holbrook was performing her regular duties when a machine acted very irregularly, according to the lawsuit reported in Courthouse News. Holbrook was in the plant's six-cell "100 section" when a robot unexpectedly activated, taking her by surprise. The cells are separated by safety doors and the robot should not have been able to move. But it somehow reached Holbrook, and was intent on loading a trailer-hitch assembly part right where she stood over a similar part in another cell. The machine loaded the hardware onto Holbrook's head. She was unable to escape, and her skull was crushed. Co-workers who eventually noticed that something seemed amiss found Holbrook dead. William Holbrook seeks an unspecified amount of damages, arguing that before her gruesome death, his wife "suffered tremendous fright, shock and conscious pain and suffering." He also names three of the defendants -- FANUC, Nachi, and Lincoln Electric -- in two additional claims of product liability and breach of implied warranty. He argues that the robots, tools, controllers, and associated parts were not properly designed, manufactured or tested, and not fit for use.

Dubai police added a robotic officer to its force, and plans to add more over the next few years. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t have a gun.)

...The city plans on recruiting a lot of the bots so they eventually make up 25 percent of the force by 2030.

The police department's one robot already patrolled the Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference in the United Arab Emirates this week. Next up is patrolling the massive Dubai Mall, which posted that the robot loves selfies and will be around all week.

The robot, first launched in 2011, is from Spanish company PAL Robotics. The robocop is a REEM, a full-sized humanoid robot that can speak and understand several languages.

I liked that Vid, it ends on a half positive....  something like:  "This could be a seminal moment for mankind"
... Make sure you live before you die.
