This episode we cover the amorality of technology and how it butts up against the messy real world of people and trying to model things like language and intent as implementation requirements. Hilarity ensues!

In 2017 the video Slaughterbots! was posted on YouTube that showed a black Mirror like future where assassin drones existed and got slightly out of hand. This video was targeted at all the designers and engineers that could actually build something like that and to consider some of the less savory practical applications that their work could lead to.

Last episode coverage of metaverse saw a 25% decline in the parent company Meta the very next day, so we are hoping that our coverage here will lead to a similar decline in Slaughterbots, because correlation is causation right?
