Robots are great... except when they kill people and steal jobs. That’s the conclusion of filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin’s eye-opening work of science non-fiction

Science fiction writer Isaac Asimov was the first person to imagine laws for robots. In his 1942 short story Runaround, set in the middle of the 21st century, he laid down the first law, which states: "A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm." Now we're catching up to Asimov's future and his number one law is already being tested.

Filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin charts the emerging cases where robots have caused the deaths of humans: in an automated Volkswagen factory, in a self-driving Tesla vehicle, and from a bomb-carrying droid used by Dallas police. Each case raises questions of accountability, legality, and morality but they are typically shrouded in cover-ups or treated as freak anomalies. Pozdorovkin makes the case that we need to pay more attention. He explores provocative viewpoints from engineers, journalists, philosophers, and, through archival footage, Asimov himself.

The film goes beyond sensational deaths to examine subtler ways that robots pose a threat. They are job killers. Pozdorovkin documents the accelerating ways in which robots are replacing humans, not just in the sector of manufacturing but everywhere from fast food to farming to legal work. The next time you hear politicians promising to bring back jobs, you'll have to wonder if they're delusional or just lying.

The film encompasses multiple points of view. Some see robots as a way to increase prosperity for all humans while others fear inequality will only widen. As a wry storytelling device, Pozdorovkin enlists a robotic voice to narrate the film as if from the future. This is an eye-opening work of science non-fiction.

The video is MKV.

What's your point?

The message is a warning to those who cannot play MKVs. It also tells those who can play MKVs that this is usable by them.
Everything should have its format on it, not just videos. "Books" formats are relatively easy to convert to whatever format one prefers; not so with video.
This video—indeed, the topic—is interesting, so I would happily download this if I could play it. I do download, and seed, almost every video which is mp4.

Just upgrade whatever it is you're using to play videos. MKV has been around for years now.

Just download the free program VLC (video lan codec) from their website. They play mkv, mp4, mov, heck, even play DVDs right off the disc.
