Alien-A-Day # 14 — Hillbot. The first autonomous robot. Once celebrated as the smartest robot in the universe, its creation was hailed as the dawn of a glorious future. That is until scientists discovered a fatal flaw in it’s ethics circuit. In their rush to cover their mistake, the Hillbot quickly mastered the arts of bad faith, bluffing, cover-up, deflecting, exaggeration, half-truth, omission, puffery, and barefaced lies. It is best remembered for its cackling laughter and words of wisdom “hey, look over there!.”
