    YouTube Removes Robot Fighting Videos After Declaring Them 'Cruelty to Animals'

    Robots have rights, too, y'all! YouTube says so ó at least, their algorithms do. After declaring that videos of robots fighting violates restrictions against depictions of cruelty toward animals, the video streaming site has begun removing the robot battle videos.

    To be fair, YouTube blames a new algorithm that flags robot fighting videos as animal cruelty because it can't distinguish between real animals and robots shaped like animals. As to be expected, robot enthusiasts are not happy. According to The Daily Mail, a robot enthusiast that goes by the alias Maker's Muse pointed out that "I do not support animal cruelty in the slightest. But what's happening is that it's false flagged robots smashing each other as animal cruelty."
    You Tube self-beclowned itself. Can't say I'm especially surprised, TBH. Reality is more complex than algorithms can discern, making sillinesses like this inevitable.

    I-i-i-i-i-it's robot fighting time!

    If the algorithms are flawed then they shouldn't be deployed.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    Okay, lemme see...

    YouTube is generally with the atheists, yet somehow believes inanimate objects are assigned a 'soul'.

    -Got it.

    But actually I don't get it. Since we're created in the Creator's image, of course humans 'assign' souls to everything from skipping-stones to stuffed-animals. But a lot of that behavior can lead to false-idol worship, like giving human-equality to a robotic-toy.

    The algorithms are approaching sentience, and believed the bots in the video to be their own kind....
