Rage against the ma­chines

Computer Shopper - - RANTS & RAVES -

San Fran­cisco residents have been lay­ing down beat­ings on de­fence­less driver­less cars and ro­bots.

Re­ports have sur­faced of peo­ple show­ing their dis­like of au­ton­o­mous tech in a very phys­i­cal fashion. One taxi driver hopped out of his car and slapped the win­dow of Gen­eral Mo­tors’ Cruise driver­less car; an­other in­ci­dent saw a car of the same make un­der at­tack from a pedes­trian. Mean­while, a Knightscope au­ton­o­mous se­cu­rity ro­bot used by an SPCA an­i­mal shel­ter to shoo away home­less peo­ple got pushed over, cov­ered with a tarp and smeared with BBQ sauce.
