Robotic Security Forces On Patrol In NYC And It's Not Going Over Well With The Locals

Submitted by: trimble 2 months ago in News & Politics Tech

The robotic protectors can see what you’re doing and even talk back to you, but the machines created by a New Yorker have prompted serious privacy concerns.

I'm surprised they made it look like the head of a vibrator instead of R2D2.

So now instead of calling Robocop it's "hey dildo, get over here!  I just got robbed!"

I can see why a privacy is a concern. No one wants a cop looking over their shoulder when their doing something illegal

just shoot water in it's holes. Looks like you could just push it over and that's it, it'll be stuck there until someone comes to help it.

As far as them being out there I don't think that this will ever really be a privacy issue.
There are already cameras everywhere and if its on private or public property that's going to fall in to the point that it will only see what a person would see if they were there. Of course being hacked is my biggest problem and should be for the people owning them too. First the information and then if there compromised by the bad guy it could just help with the crime. 
  But if you were listening carefully they are already exploiting them $6 to $12 per hour to run, obviously there not even paying some of them minimum wage.

Security is a natural use for robots, once they start being autonomous and looking more like people, there'll be a lot of them used that way. Especially for the very rich and for high-value targets like banks & stuff.
