A PR2 robot in development.
Asked if we have to worry about robots taking over the world some time, Cousins said, "It has no intention of taking over the world. Unless somebody programs the robot and says, you know, 'What you're supposed to do is kill all humans.' "
Asked about people with evil intentions, Cousins said, "But even if they did, at the end of that, so the robots killed all humans. (The robot) doesn't have anything to do next, right? It doesn't have like, 'Oh, now what I should do? Well, I should, you know, procreate or something, right?' They don't do that."
