Artificial Intelligence has taken one giant step back with this one.
A crime-fighting robot meant to patrol an office building in Washington, D.C. ended up in the building’s fountain on Monday.
Our D.C. office building got a security robot. It drowned itself.

The K5 machine was reportedly patrolling the Washington Harbour complex when it fell down steps into the fountain. Definitely an eventful Monday for workers who had to fish the robot out of the water.
