I Remembered . . .
Made me go find and read Asimov's short "Robot Dreams".  Used to be Science FICTION!

Re: this goes to remind us that after all it's just software
@Kelly: That's an eye-opening way of framing it, Kelly -- because the corollary is that IoT is just as scary as robots and a potential robot uprising.

Reminds me of the Futurama episode where the robots revolt and the toaster is the most vicious-minded of all.

Re: A.I. website free instagram followers
That's a chilling but real threat, @Ludivina. Code can be used for evil just as much as for good.

 I could imagine how big the damage would be if a robot hacks other networks within the office.

Re: this goes to remind us that after all it's just software
All good points, @nikosvg. There are a lot of angles to robot security issues. In some ways, it's just another IoT problem. That being said, with the "human-like" qualities evolving with these systems, there also are major insider threat possibilities here, and they're even more direct and potentially damaging than that of your printer, fridge/microwave/toaster.

Re:my instagram
I hope the researchers of IOActive find a way to drill down on the security issues now, before robots become mainstream. I could imagine how big the damage would be if a robot hacks other networks within the office.

this goes to remind us that after all it's just software
As I wrote in "Artificial Intelligence For Better Or Worse?" on i-programmer ,this goes to remind us that after all it's just software, thus prone to the same issues that any program faces throughout its existence.

Software glitch aside, there are other issues too like who can tell what will happen if the software agents that power robotic hardware gets hacked or infected with a virus? How can we make adequate precautions against such an act?

And let's not forget about Microsoft's AI Twitter chatbot Tay which turned malevolent and racist far too easily.

So if we want to let AI evolve there many such issues to be solved first, letting alone the aspects of work displacement and ethics.
