The world’s first robot police officer officially reported for duty at the UAE’s flagship Dubai Mall on Tuesday.
The high-tech police officer, unveiled at the GITEX Technology Conference in Dubai in 2015, can recognize the faces of wanted criminals in airports and malls. It also assists shoppers with directions and can contact Dubai police if there’s a problem. The ‘Robocop’ also flirts with tourists, saying 'you have really pretty eyes' and asking 'if they grew up around here.'

Military robot shaves human head
The prototype robot was a Multi-Arm UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) from U.S company Intelligent Automation Inc (IAI) in Maryland – and is designed to tackle IEDs, check backpacks for bombs and breach doors.
But on this occasion it was armed with multiple clippers to cut the hair of an IAI volunteer, who went through the ordeal to raise money for cancer charity the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

Shipping Giants Are Looking to Self-Piloting Boats to Shift Cargo
Millions of containers could be hauled by robotic ships within the next decade.
These projects seek to at least partially turn into reality a vision outlined by Rolls-Royce last year. Long-term, the British engineering firm predicts a future in which cargo ships ply the seas without a single crew member aboard. It reckons that a totally crewless ocean-going cargo ship could be sailing by 2035. But, just like the first wave of driverless cars, ships will gain features, such as autonomous navigation, incrementally. And for the shipping industry, it seems those increments can’t come soon enough.
