Robocops would catch crooks by 2040August 11th, 2008 - 1:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, August 11 (ANI): Robots could be on patrol in Britain by 2040, and would have sensory devices to detect guns and knives, and sniff out bombs.
According to a report in The Sun, Artificial Intelligence Professor Noel Sharkey of Sheffield University, UK, predicted that the Terminator and Robocop style machines may also be introduced to issue tickets and fines, thus taking on the role of robotic traffic wardens.
Professor Sharky said that said the robocops could store data on millions of people, enabling them to identify and arrest wanted criminals.
By 2084, the robots would be able to be made with human-like skin. (ANI)
