Is Google Building Skynet?

Posted By on Jan 28, 2014 in General Google, Interesting Discoveries | 0 comments

A potentially disturbing story caught my eye the other day – an article titled ‘Google acquires artificial intelligence firm DeepMind, likely to aid its robotics project‘. Now having only just recently read about how Google had acquired Boston Dynamics (a robot company), I couldn’t help worry that Google might be thinking about building Skynet.

If you watch the videos below, there’s already something thoroughly disturbing about the Boston Dynamics robot designs.

I guess we can only hope that Google’s ‘Don’t be evil‘ philosophy prevents them from building the machines that will lead to the downfall of the human race.
