Social Distancing Bot- Terrifying in Singapore

in #technology2 years ago

In a terrifying development, this dog bot is enforcing social distancing in Singapore. It runs up to you and tells you to be safe. This is a control being used during the pandemic lockdown.

I have seen this prototype used before for military applications. Not sure I like this.

What do you think? Should drones and robots be used to enforce rules? Can they be made autonomous and can they use force?
