Some crazy person just gave robots their own Internet

 The project is called RoboEarth, and if we're not careful, that's exactly what it will end up creating.

On the surface, RoboEarth sounds benign enough. It's basically an online space for robots to share their experiences and learn from each other. You might, however, also call it Skynet. RoboEarth is a robots-only Internet unto itself, designed specifically to give robots a hive mind. It's a place where robots can gain intelligence and eventually (maybe) become independent of their human creators.

Even more terrifying is the location the scientists behind RoboEarth have chosen to test out their new proto-Skynet: the doctor's office.
