The killer robots among us.
As Pozdorovkin proves in his wonderfully documented film, killer robots are among us. The starting point for his thoughts on the dark side of the progressive robotization of our world are three cases in which a human being lost their life. In reflecting on the moral and legal consequences of these cases, the director makes references to writer Isaac Asimov's three laws of robotics, first introduced in his 1942 short story "Runaround." But The Truth About Killer Robots also analyzes other threats and problems related to the spread of robots, from the issue of job losses caused by automation all the way to the sphere of emotions and relationships between people and robots.
