Are you prepared to meet your robot overlords?

The idea of superintelligent machines may sound like the plot of "The Terminator" or "The Matrix," but many experts say the idea isn't far-fetched. Some even think the singularity -- the point at which artificial intelligence can match, and then overtake, human smarts -- might happen in just 16 years.

Maybe we shouldn't let robots get to smart.  They may see us as useless and take over the planet.

It doesn't just "sound like the plot of "The Matrix", it is "The Matrix".

That why Earth's greatest minds must study the movie so they can take preventive action.

Actually, how is this possible? Computers are dumb.

That's all.

As long as they don't build them with EMP resistance, we'll always have a fighting chance!

For goodness' sake, splash water on them.

That always works on my computer.

I think everyone missed who the bad guys really were in the Matrix.

We can speculate all day on what artificial intelligence will do... Attaching human thought to synthetics, I would think, would be ineffective in predicting their behaviors.

My guess is that it would be completely different, as their basic needs would be totally different than our basic needs.

I like the idea of the robots in "i, Robot".

I don't mind those robots taking over, because it would be ironic.

I think this is a bad idea.

Scientists already said the Terminator scenario is possible nd very likely if we go that far.

Sorry to troll with a one word response but....

NO!

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Unless humans invent a power source that can power a robot independent of an extension cord I don't see them being a threat.   Running around on batteries might work for a few hours but eventually they are going to have to find an outlet to plug into to recharge.

You must not have seen the Nissan commercial where the owner plugs her house into the car for power.

I'll also read an article that indicated the general populace intelligence is dropping.  So the more we depend on smart machines whether it be a robot or a phone, we will continue to degrade.  How far is anyone's guess.
