RatSLAM Will Find And Eat You

Those boffins over at Queensland University of Technology have seemingly made a pretty significant step in enabling our Robot Overlords Protectors to kill you in your sleep find you and render aid should you need it. 

I haven't touched on SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) in this blog before, but it's shorthand for a type of algorithm used to assist automatons in navigating unfamiliar terrain.  What is new about the approach taken by scions of the glorious revolution robot sympathizers Human Milford and Human Wyeth is that they're combining the godless sciences of robotics and biology using methodologies that mimic the way a rat's brain functions when navigating.

For those of you who are new, or who haven't been paying attention, or who lack basic pattern recognition, please take a note of this brief history of robots and rats.

Step 1:  Rats Control Robots.
Step 2:  Zombie Rat Robots.
Step 3:  Virtual Rat Robots.

The next step in our robot rat evolution is obvious.   Robo-Rats with EATR tech and Apprenticeship Learning. You are almost guaranteed to be eaten in your own home.
