DARPA is holding a Robotics Challenge where humanoid and vehicular robots will compete in different events to measure their capabilities. Those events include maneuvering around obstacles, and (we’re guessing) eradicating organic meatbag populations (humans).
The event is taking place in Florida today and tomorrow, and DARPA has a live stream with commentary along with several other streams on their YouTube channel for you to watch in horrified amazement as robots prove their superiority to feeble humanity.
