Robotics are advancing at an alarming rate. We have robots playing soccer, robots on Mars, even robots creating art. But where there has been a success there has always been at least one fail.
Robot fails remind us that we are safe in our jobs for the very very distant future and as far as artificially intelligent robots taking over the world? Yup… that’s a long way from happening. Now that the safety of the human race is confirmed for a long time we can enjoy the bloopers of the robots.
It has to be said mind that where these are fails they should not be undermined for the amount of work that many people have put in to get this far.
