'Robotic World Wide Web' makes life easier for machines (robots of the world unite!)
telegraph.co.uk ^ | 1/15/2014 | Matthew Sparkes

Posted on 01/15/2014 4:20:56 AM PST by RoosterRedux

The first demonstration of a “World Wide Web for robots” that allows machines to share information and learn from each other will take place this week in the Netherlands.

Cloud-based RoboEarth aims to help robots benefit from the experience of other machines. For instance, if one robot has spent time developing an accurate map of a room it can upload the data so another machine entering it for the first time has a navigational head start.

It can also store information on how to complete certain tasks or learned patterns for object recognition. This means that once one robot has sufficient experience of identifying employees' faces at a certain company, all other RobotEarth robots could be given the same ability almost instantly.

Another feature is the RoboEarth Cloud Engine, which can handle complex calculations for robots and avoid the need for them to include powerful processors and additional battery packs.

They are creating monsters.
Have they never seen Battlestar Galactica?

OK, so what could be so bad about a competitor being able to know all your employees. Anyone? Beuller?

And on top of this there was an article somewhere this morning stating that the NSA had a way of connecting to your computer even if it is not online (by radio frequency).

So presumably the technology exists for all computers to be connected and working together with the robots.

Just peachy.

This is a vast step forward to a total surveillance society. The only real question is who ends up at the top of the pyramid - humanity or machine.

You know they do. They’re just the type that like to sit in a bunker with some popcorn and the press the button to open the flood gates as they watch the robotic carnage ensue on remote video feeds from surveillance cameras or drones.

It depends on the movie, and since Arnold continues to threaten to make Terminator 4, expect some additional slippage in the future.

Of course, according to Arthur C Clarke, we were supposed to have moon and space colonies by now.

And Pan Am still exists...

The future ain’t what it used to be.

Ok... Science fiction does differ quite markedly from Reality... Let’s take that as a given.

Can we at least make sure that someone knows where a good, solid, effective OFF switch is? Just in case?
