The No Deathbot Guarantee*
*not necessarily a guarantee
One robotics company, Clearpath Robotics, has promised never to make autonomous killing machines, and hopes all future tech companies will get on board with the no killer robot promise. Problem solved, right? Jeff and Anthony aren’t so sure, and see a future where solemnly swearing with no take-backs might not be enough. This episode also features French robots, so there’s that.
