Google Aims to be Skynet!Submitted by Sheepherder911 on Tue, 12/17/2013 - 15:14
This is scary. Why buy robots, Google? What does an internet company need with military equipment?
From the Guardian:
"Google’s recent acquisition of Boston Dynamics marks its eighth robotics purchase in the past six months, showing Google’s “moonshot” robotics vision is more than just a pet project.
Boston Dynamics is the most high-profile acquisition, however, instantly adding world-leading robotics capability, including robots that can walk all on their own, to Google’s arsenal – as well as significant links to the US military – conjuring images of Skynet and the artificial intelligence-led robot uprising straight out of the 1984 film The Terminator."
