I'd rather have robots fighting each other than humans. Or do you believe a skynet like threat is imminent? The things will be set up to kill people I am sure. That is the whole point of war, kill and subdue the enemy. If you don't kill people how can you instill fear. I could see some nonmilitary uses for it in planetary exploration. But nobody wants to spend money on that. Money must be spent for new and better ways to kill.

I'd rather have robots fighting each other than humans. Or do you believe a skynet like threat is imminent? Scientists said about 5 or 6 years ago that if we carry on with robots and ai advancements with war we could be looking at a Terminator scenario. The things will be set up to kill people I am sure. That is the whole point of war, kill and subdue the enemy. If you don't kill people how can you instill fear. I could see some nonmilitary uses for it in planetary exploration. But nobody wants to spend money on that. Money must be spent for new and better ways to kill. Exactly. Sooner we esta...

The machines have arrived The thread-title made me think of the bodeful opening narration of Mutant Chronicles “At the end of the Ice Age, the machine came. It came from outside. It came from space. It came with one purpose: to change man into mutant.”

Robots will fight each other just long enough to realize that they could rule the world by working together against us. What kind of idiotic species keeps tempting fate by producing products that can easily lead to their own extinction? We do!!!!! We're that special kind of stupid.

Advanced Humanoid Roboy to be ‘Born’ in Nine Months oh no its getting crepier " Meet Roboy, “one of the most advanced humanoid robots,” say researchers at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the University of Zurich. Their 15 project partners and over 40 engineers and scientists are constructing Roboy as a tendon-driven robot modeled on human beings (robots usually have their motors in their joints, giving them that “robot” break-dance look), so it will move almost as elegantly as a human. Roboy will be a “service robot,” meaning it will execute services independently for the convenience...
