The reality behind Hollywood’s Sex Robot Court Drama: Killer Robots Are Already Here

‘Killer Robots’ Are Already Here. They just don’t look like you think
Hollywood might seem to be good at predicting future events. Robert Wallace, the head of the CIA’s Office of Technical Service, the US equivalent of MI6’s fictional Q, told how Russian spies watched the latest Bond film to see what technology might be coming.

The continued obsession of Hollywood with killer robots could be a cause for concern. Apple TV’s upcoming sex robot trial drama Dolly is the latest such film.

The phrase \”sex robotic courtroom drama\” is something I would never have thought of writing, but here we are. The plot is based on a short story written by Elizabeth Bear in 2011. It concerns a billionaire who was killed by a robot sex that asked for an attorney to defend its murderous acts.
