The Truth About Killer Robots

by Maxim Pozdorovkin Hashtag #BigData

“Robot invention happens faster than law makers can think!” They build cars, make pizza, sort mail and welcome us at hotel receptions; robots and androids have long since found their place in our increasingly automated life. They are accurate, fast, never need a vacation and thus are able to increase the productivity of every company. That which triggers fascination for engineers and software developers, is a considerable, even existential threat for others. Meanwhile the law is tackling other aspects of said progress: Who will be held responsible if a robot harms a human being? Director Maxim Pozdorovkin has travelled through China, Japan, the US and Germany to bring us this eye-opening film, which examines the latest developments in robotics and AI, and sheds light on the devastating consequences for humanity.
