  • It isn't. If you read the story, you will see clearly that the fine details were entered in with a keypad by an operator. And they don't see giving the robot an ability to make such determinations itself because of lack of funding.

  • I get the impression, Parakletos, that when the AI robots take over, you'll be blind-sided.

  • Remote-controlled ball-putters do not an AI Robot make.

  • No, but they do represent a new-born species.

  • Every robot they create on those Robot Wars style TV shows (popular in Australia, England, as well as the USA and Japan) then is a new-born 'species' -- 'born' to fight and be destroyed for human amusement/entertainment. They, too, are remote-controlled. Why did this particular robot tickle your fancy? It doesn't appear to be headed for the gladiatorial games.

  • It's a tipping point.
