Could you rob a bank that is staffed by a robot?

Asked by elbanditoroso (28647points) June 27th, 2018

Robots are programmed to obey commands from humans.

So suppose you were a robber and went to a bank where robots staffed the place link

Then you told the robot “this is a holdup – give me all your money”.

Would the robot obey?

She would probably be integrated, and in control of, the bank’s internal security systems.
She could sic the pigs on you in a split second without you even knowing, and have you riddled with bullets from four directions, before you can even finish the sentence.

So far, since the mid eighties, I’ve always gotten money whenever I demanded it.
As long as I entered my pin correct.

No. The bot would be programmed to follow certain procedures and if it couldn’t comply with your order, it would freeze up.

The Mark I robot teller which handed out fistfuls of cash to anyone asking for it was quickly replaced by the Mark II version which didn’t.

In the picture above I noticed the bot’s grip was already in the position of function for a Glock 17. I would not try it. The bot has no fear and nothing to lose.

It also looks like Freeza, so it needs no gun.

What if you robbed it with gangsta robots?

Robots are programmed to obey humans who programmed those commands first, so no unless it’s an inside job.
