“I for one welcome our new robot overlords”

20 Mar

In an experiment reminiscent of Milgram’s obedience to authority research, the Human Computer Interaction Lab in Manitoba Canada reports on the willingness of human’s to take orders from Robots.

The phrase “I for one welcome our new robot overlords” is a variation of a line from Springfield Newscaster Kent Brockman, However Brockman himself was actually paraphrasing a line from the 1977 film Empire of the Ants, based on a story by H. G. Wells.
