    Robots Command Humans to Cleanup Spills in Grocery Stores

    First, it's commanding humans to clean spilled spaghetti sauce in isle 3, next they'll be commanding them to clean up the blood spillage at the robot controlled Soylent Green slaughterhouse. It's only a matter of time.

    Cars in China Transmit Location Data to the Government

    I'm just guessing but I think it may have to do with that social credit score system they just put into use... after all, some of the infractions that can lower your score are speeding and illegal parking and whatnot.
