Korean Service Bot Plays Prison Guard
A team from the South Korean Asian Forum For Corrections built a combination prison guard and snitch that is programmed to monitor cells, keep prisoners in touch with human officers and analyze behavior that could be aggressive or suicidal. Fortunately for the inmates, this is a good robot (note the slight smile) and is not permitted to carry a taser or practice waterboarding. In the future, they are hoping to make the guardbot even more inmate friendly.
