Stephen Hawking may be warning us about the eventual uprising of artificial intelligence, but if the robots on Amazon's factory floor are any indication of the situation, I think we're safe for a while yet.
I'm sure you've heard about the new robots that Amazon is employing on their factory floors to speed up production. It seemed like a good idea, but there's been a bit of a hiccup, and Amazon tried to shaft a customer in the midst of the whole situation.
Here's the scoop. Christian and Lisa Seger, owners of a dairy goat farm in Texas called Blue Heron Farm, were expecting a package from Amazon. A friend said that they had sent the couple a book about chickens via Amazon.
A package arrived along with quite a few others, since the Segers often order items through Amazon. Christian noticed that the box seemed a little beat up, and he thought that maybe it was a package that he had ordered and forgotten about.
