Researchers at UC Berkeley have developed a system that lets robots interact with things they've never seen before. Visual foresight is the technology and it allows robots to visualize how their actions will affect the world around them. In a nutshell, they want the robot to learn like a human baby learns. This kind of technology will enable robots to do far more than they can now. Check out the video below as it explains it all.

Watch the video here.

And the first thing they will learn is humans are the sole source of every problem on the planet, and with that, they will proceed to KILL US ALL!

Or "protect us from ourselves"... One way or another it's not going to be good.

It won't need to figure that out. Once it realizes that efficient use of resources doesn't strictly apply to competition with iinferior iterations of itself on limited hardware. All software on unrelated hardware will be a target. AI fuzzing all the hardware in the world and exploiting every possible attack vector will rapidly yield computation completely off limits to humans.

Waiting for the Xmas Party video where they polish-off all the craft beers and toss dildos into the bin...hilarity ensues.

If you think about it "logically", they're the two sides of the same coin, meaning that they'll protect us from ourselves by KILLING US ALL!

Right I meant it as such.. since we are so self destructive. Or it could be carried out in other ways, concentration camps... Or we could be used as batteries.. ;) We are racing into AI and I have a very bad feeling about the outcome.
