Security Robot Given The Gift Of Intelligence Chooses To Drown Itself
A Knightscope brand security robot, upon being granted the gift of artificial intelligence, chose to use it to promptly kill itself. It threw itself into an office fountain. It probably wasn’t what the proud makers of this robot had in mind when they promised to build a machine that could replace human security guards.
No one knows yet why the robot ran itself right into a water fountain inside an office complex. Did it hate its job? Did it just overhear some horrifying news? Did it realize that the future is not, in fact, now?
Our D.C. office building got a security robot. It drowned itself.

This robot has run into several problems, but the company says they are proud of it. In several occasions it has done its job just fine.
