Quote:[...]A newly released video shows (Boston Dynamics) SpotMini approaching the door as before, but this time it’s joined by a pesky human with an ice hockey stick.

[...]SpotMini continues to grab the handle and turn it even after its creepy fifth arm with a claw on the front is pushed away.

If that assault wasn’t enough, the human’s robot bullying continues, shutting the door on Spot, which counterbalances and fights back against the pressure. In a last-ditch effort to stop the robot dog breaching the threshold, the human grabs at a leash attached to the back of the SpotMini and yanks.[...]

Boston Dynamics describes the video as “a test of SpotMini’s ability to adjust to disturbances as it opens and walks through a door” because “the ability to tolerate and respond to disturbances like these improves successful operation of the robot”.[...]

But teaching robots to fight back against humans may might end up harming us.[...]

It's programmed to "tolerate and respond to disturbances" while accomplishing the task at hand.
It didn't exactly swing that jaw around and grab his head and crush it like a watermelon.
It's not true AI, no Cylons anytime soon, but potentially a different story in a few years.

Guardian is normally not so sensational, I copied the headline verbatim...
The real story here is this DOES get progressively more advanced and kinda' creepy.

Not much harm in this until it's programmed to eliminate disturbances, and certainly it will be because they can.

i need to learn how to lasso moving objects...

when i see things like this, i automatically start thinking of ways to take it out.
the only thing these are going to be used for is killing people.

it's true , those girls were the Evil Twins we hear about in Fables Man .

they'd walk out of the house , Mom would watch them through the window
as they walked to the street , stop , plan , go off to implement their evil deed .

Mom would back away from the window , shake her head ,, " There's something Sinister about those Things "

she'd turn and look at me , watching me as I tried to glue the hair they snatched off my head
back on .

we called them : " Double " E "

Evil times two .
