Video: Well, I guess it’s official then. We are all as good as dead. Vladimir Putin’s new robot ‘FEDOR’ being trained to shoot guns is “not a Terminator” insists Russia’s deputy Prime Minister!
Russia’s space-bound humanoid robot FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) is being trained to shoot guns from both of its hands. The activity will help improve the android’s motor skills and decision-making, according to its creators, who have also tried to address concerns that they’re developing a real-life Terminator. “Robot platform F.E.D.O.R. showed shooting skills with two hands,” wrote Russia’s deputy Prime Minister, Dmitry Rogozin, on Twitter. “We are not creating a Terminator, but artificial intelligence that will be of great practical significance in various fields.”
