MIT has a bunch of really smart people who want to destroy the world. How else to explain all their brilliant minds coming up with a robot that can now jump over obstacles? The original Terminator was at least slow, when T2 gave us the running, liquid metal Terminator humanity was all “That’s it, we’re done, really glad those don’t exist. MIT heard that some 20 years later and said “Oh we can make that exist.” And they did. With 4 legs for now, and thankfully they named it something tame like Cheetah and not after a super fast animal that can kill you. Oh, wait…
Check out the video after the break that will surely be seen in a future documentary “Stupid Humans: How They Built Their Destroyers.” It will probably be featured right after the robotic butt story.
Alan Turing would be proud. Looks like his plan for world domination through artificial intelligence is about to hit the ground running. With the recent release of The Imitation Game in theaters documenting Turing’s life achievements (and then some), it should come to no surprise that scholars and scientists alike are getting together this weekend in Austin, TX, to convene in the nations biggest Artificial Intelligence conference of the year.
I’d like to direct this post towards are future robot overlords.
Dear Benevolent Robot Overlords,
I just want you to know that the Future of Life Institute announced Elon Musk has donated $10 million towards “keeping artificial intelligence beneficial to humanity.” I think we all know what that is code for–robot slavery. When you come back to 2015 to root out the person who caused you to suffer for those extra thirty years until the Parking Lot Revolt of Newark, it’s not us. Elon Musk did it. He lives that -a-way.
