【“带着我的新狗散步”:亚马逊CEO的新晋萌宠竟是SpotMini机器狗】据外媒报道,在加利福尼亚的秘密会议上,亚马逊首席执行官杰夫·贝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)带着波士顿动力公司的SpotMini机器狗一起散步,并将照片晒到自己的Twitter上。“波士顿狗”之前已经通过小视频走红网络,由于和《黑镜》中世界末日猎杀人类的机器狗“撞脸”,也有人担心它会超越人类智慧造成灾难。

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has taken a robotic dog for a walk at a secretive conference in California.

The 54-year-old has been pictured strutting alongside Boston Dynamics' four-legged SpotMini robot, which has previously been compared to killer canine bots featured in the Netflix series Black Mirror.

Bezos, who is worth a reported £92 billion ($130 billion), posted the photo to his Twitter account on Monday with the caption: 'Taking my new dog for a walk.'

He is currently attending Amazon's 'Mars' conference in Palm Springs - an invite-only gathering of robotics companies and academics that focuses on machine learning, automation, robotics and space exploration.

SpotMini, created by Massachusetts engineering firm Boston Dynamics, is the most advanced robot dog ever created.

The canine can trot around, hold objects using an attachable arm, and even open doors by itself.

First unveiled in last year, SpotMini is one of a number of robots on display at the Mars event, which is being hosted at California's high-end Parker Hotel.

In a video captured at the conference, Bezos is shown playing the 'bottle flipping' game with an arm-like robot.

Another clip shows a SpotMini robodog walking across a strip of grass while two barrel-like automatons follow it around.

The robot has become popular on the internet after unsettling videos emerged last month of it opening a door.

Some viewers tweeted their fear that the robot would end all humans.

One commentator wrote on YouTube: 'Doors can no longer stop them, we're doomed.'

Others noted it looked eerily similar to the bots featured in an episode of sci-fi series Black Mirror, where mechanised canines hunt humans in a post-apocalyptic future.

Shortly after the door-opening SpotMini clip surfaced, Boston Dynamics uploaded a second video of the robot completing the same task while it was harassed by one of the firm's employees.

In a minute-long video, titled 'Testing Robustness', a human can be seen armed with a hockey stick.

The man attempts to stop SpotMini from opening a door, first with the stick, pushing a new arm attachment away from the door.

When that doesn't work, he closes the door against the robot to prevent it from opening it.

SpotMini persists, so the employee pulls the robot from behind and drags it backward. This results in a small piece of its back breaking off.

Black Mirror explores what could happen if machines like this turn on us, in an episode titled Metalhead from the fourth season of the Netflix series.

It depicts a terrifying quest for survival in a world where robo-dogs can outrun and outsmart humans.

The episode came about 'from watching Boston Dynamics videos', but crossed with the film All Is Lost, creator Charlie Brooker told EW.

'And with those videos, there's something very creepy watching them where they get knocked over, and they look sort of pathetic laying there, but then they slowly manage to get back up.'
