Comment: "what to do?" send a robot of your own? (Score 1) 514

If one side is sending robots to war, the other side will send their own robots against them. Has anyone figured out the game theory behind a war where both sides send robots instead of humans? It seems like it could be better than what we have now. I don't understand why we're so against the idea.

While an interesting question (I didn't even know hardware manufacturers were in the habit of converting software into hardware), why don't they figure it out themselves? They must have the tools/people to do it. Are you afraid they'll "steal your algorithm" if you give them the source? (that's much less interesting)

The PS4 can share to, which is the equivalent of uploading a video clip to the "Sky drive", except the upload is done in real time. Also, I suspect Youtube opened up their live streaming feature because of the release of the consoles (especially PS4); now that everyone can share their gameplay, they want to be a viable option.
