Hackers Could Program Sex Robots to Kill

A cybersecurity scientist has issued a bizarre warning that sex robots could one day rise up and kill their owners if hackers can get inside their heads.

Last month, tech billionaire Elon Musk claimed that artificial intelligence could take over the planet, and he’s not the only one concerned about the dangers of killer tech.

With sex robots becoming increasingly popular and sophisticated, cybersecurity lecturer Dr. Nick Patterson revealed that the lifelike dolls could end up going all “Terminator” on us.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wasn't this a plot point in 'Ghost in the Shell'??

In the anime and not the shitty movie, they hacked anyone with cybernetic brains, eyes, etc. Not just robots.

Haha! Took me a second to get it.

That aside, he's right. Cut off all outside communication, and hacking becomes impossible without physical access to the robot.

Pretty good way to go...even if it is a robo-Basic Instinct way to do it

I really hope that creep in the picture gets attacked by his sex doll one day.
