Sky News Australia – Sky News host Paul Murray says Singapore is using a “COVID robot” to enforce compliance with coronavirus rules. “Xavier (the robot) scans the area, if people are too close it starts to let off a message and if you ignore it, it sets off a siren,” he said. “I don’t know what happens if you ignore it after then, but at this stage it doesn’t have the capacity to arrest people.”
We’ve already got one of those as our Prime minister here in the UK
We finally have some semblance of robots with practical function and sure enough they are being used for authoritarian purposes. What could go wrong?
