Re: I Remembered . . .
You made me look for Issac Asimov's books on robots. I will re-read them when I get a chance.

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.
