Walmart using shelf-scanning robots to audit its stores. This is how it fucking begins, dudes

walmart shelf scanning robots

This is how it fucking begins, man. First the robots are scanning shelfs, auditing them. Next thing you know they’re scanning us, auditing our worth. And oh, by the way, you’d probably notice our worth as a fact-denying, bloated, hateful corpulence isn’t that high right now. Their first strike fixing to be justified, the rate we’re going.

WEB-BASED BRAIN for robots goes live. Skynet shudders itself awake.


Oh sweet lord. Thanks to Nick Altonaga for bringing this Harbinger of Doom. There is a web-based brain out there in the clouds out there for robots now. They will access it to upgrade their knowledge, but c’mon. How long before they are using it to plan meetings, and our demise? I say not long.

As we glorify and reward frivolous positions like stock brokers, investment bankers, pediatricians, and hedge fund managers, we become more and more disconnected to real world necessities. Ok, maybe we need pediatricians, but I’m still bitter about that whole needle thing.

Today’s example: researches want to teach robots how to build their own language.
