Robots patrolling streets for 'anti-social behaviour' causes unease

There are new sheriffs in town in Singapore, and they are unnerving many who live there.

Called "Xavier," the robots are equipped with seven cameras that enable them to detect "undesirable social behaviour," for instance if you incorrectly park your bike, if you smoke in an unauthorised area or if social distancing is not being respected.

According to project manager Michael Lim, these machines are a new weapon against insecurity.

"If the robot is around and something happens, the people in the control room will have a trace and will be able to see what happened”, he said.

Anything like this, I instantly think of the rogue robot on the original RoboCop.

I don't know where will be the limits of robot uses in 10 years. I'm tinking about buying a land far from all that growing craziness, deep into wilderness before we cannot find any.
