BBC News – Cheetah robot ‘runs faster than Usain Bolt’

BBC News – Cheetah robot ‘runs faster than Usain Bolt’.

 

Noel Sharkey, professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at the University of Sheffield, said the robot was “an incredible technical achievement, but it’s unfortunate that it’s going to be used to kill people”.

“It’s going to be used for chasing people across the desert, I would imagine. I can’t think of many civilian applications – maybe for hunting, or farming, for rounding up sheep.
