Scientists in Russia just found out the hard way that artificial intelligence robots can be very difficult to deal with.
Russian scientists created a robotic prototype which they called the “Promobot” and they had originally planned to create a robot that could effortlessly mingle with humans and even possess a facial-recognition software that would help it remember everyone it meets. Unfortunately they got more than they bargained for when the robot did something they would never expect in a thousand years.
Promobot was apparently able to escape the lab where it was stored and it managed to attend a political rally in Moscow where it showed unwavering support for politician Valeriy Kalachev. It was eventually arrested by the police after it started harassing passengers on the metro.
