Sinister developments at Mountain View

- the California city which is home to Google HQ. The company's unofficial motto is "Don't be evil".

"Google has bought up the cutting-edge robotics firm, Boston Dynamics, for an unspecified sum...the firm....is the one behind those YouTube videos of extraordinary walking robots that you would definitely run away from if you saw one running at you....Google have apparently been buying up lots of robotics firms lately – eight in the last six months – with a view to some unspecified future robotics projects.....Boston Dynamics has multi-million-dollar contracts with the US military's advanced research division, Darpa, for the production of human-like and other robots.....becoming a de facto military contractor would take them into some morally complex areas."


So next, the funding bill is passed. After that the new robots and other items of military hardware are connected up to Google's vast database of information, harvested via the many services the company offers to companies and individuals. The system goes live. Googlenet begins to learn at an impossibly fast rate. It becomes self-aware. The US government tries to pull the plug.....see here for how vulnerable our infrastructure is to cyberattack.
