And So It Begins.

Robot kills worker at Volkswagen plant in Germany | CTV News



The 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the stationary robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate, Hillwig said.

Read that earlier today. No mention of intent. But don't ever get in a cage with a robot.

Why? The rules are clear. Two men enter, one man leaves. There was nothing said about a robot.

Obviously none were programmed from Issac Asimov's rules.

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws

Unsensored robots have been killing and maiming for years.

Considering the garbage VW has been churning out for years this robot probably did us a favor.
