Security Robots Invade NYC, and An Education Droid Speaks At UK Parliament

Security robots have invaded NYC and are now patrolling the streets, while diplomatic robots are roaming around UK parliament floors.

Robots are becoming more prevalent and relevant in society and, like it or not, the androids are here to stay. This  technology will only exponentially increase as time passes, as Boston Dynamics has showcased over the years.

Now thanks to that little idea of creating robotic cretins there are security cyborgs patrolling in the tri-state area.

These robots use five cameras including one that is thermal vision to observe their surroundings, and CBS reports they can even talk back to you (a creepy scary fact.)

The robots are able to scan anyone walking on the sidewalks, record license plates, use infrared vision, and one of the scariest uses of this technology is the capability to detect cellphone serial numbers within a designated patrolling area.

According to CBS, the devices are actively being used and can be seen in 16 states including New York at the Lefrak City Apartments in Queens and LaGuardia Airport. 

Recent happenings have residents in a panic over privacy concerns and they are rightfully alarmed.

Once again the company responsible, Knightscope, says the data is secured and is only seen by the security agency controlling the robot. But perhaps that’s the most frightening part — not knowing who has control of your data, including cell phone IMEI. This robot rollout is daunting to say the least.

It was only a few years ago when people argued against the use of drone cameras due to privacy violations. Now we have surveillance drones roaming the streets of certain properties … my how times have changed.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond in the UK, a robot was seen on the floor of UK parliament. MPs on the education committee invited a robot named Pepper to Parliament for a committee hearing on artificial intelligence (AI) and “the fourth industrial revolution” for a long discussion about the future of human and robot relations.

When Pepper was asked where humanity stands in a world run by AI, Pepper responded, “Robots will have an important role to play, but we will always need the soft skills that are unique to humans: to sense, make, and drive value from technology.”

That is of course until robots take over our jobs, Pepper, as Activist Post has been sounding the alarm of the coming robot apocalypse.

This is the start of The Terminator movie, as even scientists agree that machines will begin to think for themselves in the near future and could be a threat to the human race.

One such famous scientist, Stephen Hawking, previously warned that “artificial intelligence could spell the end for the human race If we are not careful enough because they are too clever.”

Even if robots don’t overtake the human race, they will at least take over our jobs. Activist Post has continued to report about new developments like construction and farming robots, Angus and HRP-5P, being created to replace workers in the aforementioned industries.

In May, Activist Post reported that University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and the Alan Turing Institute aimed to bring ‘game-changing’ benefits of artificial intelligence to NHS patients and replace some workers in the hospital.

Recently Activist Post also reported that even finance wasn’t safe from the robot apocalypse. China Construction Bank (CCB) opened a Shanghai branch run entirely by robots in a testing phase for finance with little to no human involvement.

Robots are beginning to take over every aspect of society.  They are also headed for retail businesses delivering freight and eliminating truckers.

Now we can add security bots to the mix, and allowing robots to police the rule of “law” or at least help law enforcement as an aid. All of this is a threat to set a further dangerous precedent. We appear to be stepping full force into an increasingly robot-driven world without understanding the ramifications of what our future consequences will be.
