You may have heard the news how a California man’s family was upset after his life-threatening diagnosis was delivered to him by a robot. What you haven’t heard is that the robot itself* has been placed in a “performance improvement program”. It has also has been labeled “disruptive” by the administration because it made them look bad to the public. The robot now has to do 10 hours of robot sensitivity training before doing rounds again. Rumor also has it (per the administration) that the robot smelled like weed and an investigation has started to look into that. The robot has denied any wrongdoing but does admit to smoking some medical prescribed marijuana (legal for robots in California) due to its ongoing symptoms of burnout.
