    And now the Moscow Metro subway system is getting it's own robots too, only for special occasions, for now





    The Moscow metro has unveiled its latest scheme to help tired commuters battle the nine to five: a friendly robot helper.

    Metrosha the Robot will meet and greet passengers in metro stations throughout the capital on public holidays and during other special occasions.

    With LED eyes and an interactive touch-screen embedded into his chest, the metro's latest employee can respond to simple questions and recognize faces.

    Metrosha was field-tested over the New Year holidays, and has now been approved for general use.

    Staff hope that the robot will “lift passengers' spirits,” the Moscow metro said in a statement.
    Friendly Robot to Aid Commuters on Moscow's Metro

    That thing is obviously based on Sberbosha They are multiplying, it's the beginning of Skynet lol

    I love the design; they are very appealing to my eye. Cute, even.

    How do they code them to lie?

    Do they have secret tentacles that reach out and pick your pocket?

    Probably need bigger wheels, in order to keep up with the ambulances.

    If Robots intend to take over the world, this is the best place to start.

    You wound me. Lawyers are (supposed to be) in the justice delivery business.

    Actually, lawyers are in the dispute resolution business. We attempt to deliver the best justice possible for our clients, not the respective opposing parties.

    Sberbasha can provide various information to customers, and even read their cards and help them with simple day to day transactions, like transfer money between accounts (in small sums), and that sort of thing.

    Back then, in 2012, the original prototype Sberbasha even got to meet Hillary Clinton, who was visiting Russia for some summit as Secretary of State



    Sberbashas have now been adapted in many other branches around the country


    But, right now, its getting more interesting.

    Apparently, Sberbank has, last year, developed a "robot lawyer", an intelligent machine, which has access to data bases of Russian legislation, and can, competently, fill out court claims and other such documents for the bank's clients, and even provide professional legal advice!


    And it's not a fucking joke: the bank has just announced that, as the robots enter service at the bank, at least 3,000 (!) human staff will be gradually let go from their legal department: ???????? ???????? ?????? 3*???. ??????????? ???????-??????? :: ??????? :: ???

    Holy fuck... The age of SkyNet is upon us all...
    Yes, but has it become self aware? There's still time...

Either way, humans, or some humans, perhaps, seem to be in a race to make humanity obsolete, in their quest for "better living" for humanity.
    They may find common ground with some environmentalists.

    In what many see to be a totally absurdity, for all those that do not, if low and middle income earners are "the chickens" and the wealthy, using their wealth to influence power to keep themselves wealthy by not having to give up anything to pay low and middle income people more, are "the foxes", it would seem in this past election, enough "chickens" thought it would be wise to elect a fox to make things better in the chicken coop for them.
    Do you know many people who continue to earn minimum wage beyond their teen years?

    As opposed to the business of shielding criminals from justice? Or the business of helping business screw each other over? The full job description goes a bit beyond "justice delivery".
