An anonymous reader writes “Interesting video interview on silicon.com with Sheffield University’s Noel Sharkey, professor of AI & robotics. The white-haired prof talks state-of-the-robot-nation — discussing the most impressive robots currently clanking about on two-legs (hello Asimo) and who’s doing the most interesting things in UK robotics research (something involving crickets apparently). He also voices concerns about military use of robots — suggesting it won’t be long before armies are sending out fully autonomous killing machines.”
