|Killer at Large?|
Twenty seven years ago this week, the US Center for Disease Control reported its first documented case of a robot killing a person (apologies to Isaac Asimov). It apparently took the CDC a while to come to conclusion, as the actual incident took place in July 1984.
Apparently, and I use that word advisedly, a worker had been pinned against a safety pole by an industrial robot. The robot's pressure on the man's chest reportedly cause a heart attack.
As we cast around looking for ultimately causes for what ails us, rest assured the truth, as they say, is out there.
