If you’ve ever watched any of the Terminator, you know how the whole “can robots live with humans debate” ends up. Despite the prescient lesson that empowered robots will eventually enslave mankind and take over the world, some persist on making Terminators.
At the Rise tech conference in Hong Kong, two robots created by a company called Hanson Robotics – a/k/a Cyberdyne – took the stage with and unless you really, really like robots, it was creepy as hell.
A moderator from the company – a guy who looks like a cast-off from a Phish tour – led the creepy bots in a Q&A and then had them debate each other.
At one point, the weird male robot asks Hippie Dan, “When the robots do most of the work, who will own the robots?’
Please don’t kill us Mr. Robot.
Here’s the video. The first couple minutes is the Dead Head talking, after that the Robots start the creep show.
