Great video, done by a great team that I’ve been following on the internet for ages, Corridor Digital. It does highlight some very interesting conversations that we should be having about the long term aspects of robots, and what we are doing with them, to them, and more. Such interesting implications from this potentially forseeable future, but what about what we don’t know, and haven’t foreseen?

A video circulated over the internet appearing to show a robot getting beaten and shot at. It’s a CGI fake — a parody of the clips put out by engineering company Boston Dynamics. However, it still reveals some uncomfortable truths about our innate empathy for robots.
