Bad Robot Dog

Robotics researchers in Japan created a robot dog that was a little too realistic. It chewed someone's shoes, stole a sandwich from a lunch (but didn't eat it) and gummed a child. They were experimenting with a new friskiness algorithm, but they punched in too high a value. Reminds me of the naughty-joke-composing program that IBM built a few years ago.

That program ended up writing jokes for Chappelle's show after IBM was forced to shut it down because it kept violating thier corporate anti-discrimination policies.
