A RoboCop, a park and a fight: How expectations about robots are clashing with reality

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/ ... d_nn_tw_ma
While people are beginning to more commonly encounter robots in everyday life, they can often fall short of expectations — much as HP RoboCop did. That gap can be exploited as a way to make a robot more effective than it actually is, but also runs the risk of creating situations in which people rely on robots in ways they’re unprepared for, as was the case for Guebara.

The robot’s alert button is not yet connected to the police department, said Cosme Lozano, chief of police of Huntington Park, a city just southeast of downtown Los Angeles. The calls are instead directed to Knightscope, the company that creates and leases the robots.

“That’s why we’re not advertising those features,” he said. “It’s a new program for us and were still developing some protocols… to be able to fully adopt the program.”

:snippity:

Lozano said the department is facing some technical challenges incorporating the robot into the force, adding that it’s on “a trial basis for the city.” Once fully connected, the calls will go directly to the department’s dispatch center, he said.

How long until the robot gets spray painted to block its sensors and cameras?

Haven't read through this entire thread yet so please forgive if it's been covered already, but I wanted to address a small possible positive to the inevitable robot takeover of the workforce. I'm personally of the belief that as the majority of mundane necessary task are done by machines it increases the odds of a guaranteed basic income coming into effect. In my humble opinion it is the only reasonable course of action if even 60% of work is taken over by automation. This could ensure a largely more educated and certainly far less stress ridden time to be alive, so to every cloud a silver lining 8-) Thats certainly my hope anyway but I'm happy to hear other opinions on how automation is likely to effect socioeconomic evolution in society.

Watch Engineers Take Their 60-Foot-Tall Gundam for a Walk

https://www.popularmechanics.com/techno ... dam-robot/
Since January, construction has been underway on a huge Gundam robot—a popular fictional robot that appears in some 50 TV series and movies since 1979, not to mention a slew of video games and manga. Coming in at about 60 feet tall, the Gundam will be impossible to miss from the Port of Yokohama, just south of Tokyo, where it will call home for a full year.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has halted progress on various construction projects, worldwide, the Gundam perseveres. You can check out the progress for yourself in this YouTube video, uploaded by Michael Overstreet.
