Dr. Raymond Sheh from the Intelligent Robots Group was invited to the pre-screening of Terminator Genisys on the 29th of June, as a guest of The West Australian Newspaper.
As mentioned previously, the contrast between the performance of robots at the DRC Finals and the Terminator robots would suggest that our risk to civilisation lies less with humanoid robots engaging in hand-to-hand combat and more with flesh-and-blood humans breaking into the systems that record and command our ever more connected world.
Fortunately, the Department of Computing at Curtin also has an active Computer Security focus – in addition to topics in artificial intelligence, Dr. Sheh also teaches a unit on Cyber Crime and Security Enhanced Programming. 😉
I can trust you not to take over the world, right?
