The Truth About Killer Robots

The Truth About Killer Robots

Available on iTunes, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max
When a robot kills a human, who takes the blame? An eerie, eye-opening work of science nonfiction, this documentary charts incidents in which robots caused the deaths of humans--in an automated Volkswagen factory, in a self-driving Tesla vehicle and by a bomb-carrying droid used by Dallas police--considering the issues that these cases, typically treated as freak anomalies, raise in terms of accountability and morality. Highlighting the provocative views of engineers, journalists and philosophers--and narrated by a lifelike Japanese android Kodomoroid--the film goes beyond the sensational deaths to examine more subtle but pervasive ways that robots pose a threat to society.
