The Future is Here Part 4:
A Robot Who Can Love



Doesn't it say something about humans that when we program a conversational robot all the damn thing talks about is how much it loves its creators? My favorite part of the video is when he's talking to the baby and says "I'm a baby too, you know. But one day I'll be as smart as a real human. And when that happens, I'm going to come and find you. And... we'll be friends." It doesn't take a genius to read the murderous intent between those lines.

Sure, this robot could infiltrate human society and pass unseen... but THIS robot has the dexterity to kill you very painfully.

Why can't the baby touch Jules?

"Tell me, will I dream when I am turned off? I know you do not know the answer to that. Nobody does!" Jules shouldn't preface his rhetorical questions with the phrase, "tell me". It's confusing to humans.
