Robots beating us in games is step one in robots simply beating us.

Posted 6 years ago by Adam Gautsch

Willow Garage should not brag or be praised for teaching a robot to play pool. Robots playing games is the first step to robot domination.

Thanks to @abowman5000 and Andrew Price for helping to inform the world that Self-aware robots must be stopped!

Oh, and while we're on the subject.

Self-aware Jeopardy! playing robots most certainly need to be stopped. Thank the Lord for keeping us up to date on this piece of news.

For some reason they didn't see the need to brag about teaching that robot to narrate the video.

I mean seriously, you get one of the creepy Japanese fembots playing pool, answering complex questions, and looking all human like and you are just a hop, skip and a jump from full blown Blade Runner Replicants. And mybe folks have forgotten the premise of that classic Harrison Ford film, but the robots go uber-crazy and all homocidal and Mr. Ford has to lay down the law by kicking some android ass.

Listen, full respects to the blade runner profession but I'd much prefer a world where we don't have to ask ourselves, is that another person or a cold emotionless replicant? The doubt would liekly drive us all crazy.

I think you missed the point of Blade Runner.

Then again, you might just be a replicant.

Oh I doubt I missed any point of that film or the book it is based off of.

But yeah, you can trust anybody when they could possibly be replicants.
