This popped up on my feed. Pretty amazing comparing the previous DARPA Robotics Challenge model (the one we see on the loading video) to this new version.

    This attitude's been around, literally, for centuries... and always loses out to an improved world. It's called "technological unemployment" and it's something to look forward to and celebrate, not fear.

    Seriously, what will we celebrate with unless everyone who is jobless from AI bots gets free stuff from there government. I don't think a Utopian Society can work if just one country participates.
