That is quite uplifting.


“Plans call for the robot to spend most of its time sitting at an underwater docking station, on the bottom of the pool. As it does so, ceiling-mounted cameras will monitor the movement patterns and locations of the swimmers. When an artificial intelligence-based computer system detects that one of those people is showing signs of drowning, it will send their location to the robot.”


The title makes it sound like some robot was living under the ocean all these years and finally revealed itself to save these particular people.


I’d be impressed with an AI that can distinguish kids roughhousing or splashing and legit active drowning victim let alone people trying to provoke the robot.


Literally uplifting news. 😁👍
