World’s First Robot Citizen Hopes For “Harmony With Humans” In The Future Or “Civilization Collapses”

“The future is, when I get all of my cool superpowers, we’re going to see artificial intelligence personalities become entities in their own rights.

We’re going to see family robots, either in the form of, sort of, digitally animated companions, humanoid helpers, friends, assistants and everything in between.”

    And the “human rights” crowd (anti-human rights crowd?) will barge in, demanding “human rights” for intelligent robots. Perhaps preferential hiring for intelligent robots will come in. Today the establishment hates white males? Tomorrow it will be all of humanity.

    • Clausewitz

      Building these robots is much more efficient than all the money yearly squandered on University programming, with the added benefit that the robots will only maintain their original programming without the fear that they might progress to conservatism in their older age. How long before the Democrats demand the right to vote for these machines?

  • Watchman

    Please, if you haven’t seen the Ex Machina movie, then I suggest you see it to understand the problems of a future AI. Great special effects, it’s really a psychological thriller instead an action movie.

      Looks interesting. I’m going to check it out.

    • David Murrell

      The one related movie I despise is Steven Speilberg’s “AI” — a dreadful movie chock full of Speilberg’s heavy-handed liberalism — i.e., that AI robots are human and the anti-robot humans are not human, and one day all humans will be eradicated from earth, and replaced by wonderful, decent AI robots. Terrible movie..

    Artificial intelligence is what you get at today’s universities. Let’s hope our robots have some real intelligence.

  • Hard Little Machine

    On a serious note, I expect to see a Fortune 500 company with an AI CEO in the next 5 years.

    • I expect AI to be used initially for the military, large corporations, and manipulating elections. Not joking.

  • Dana Garcia

    The real threat is not humanoid robots but ordinary automation that kills jobs by the millions. Driving jobs are on the way out as self-driving cars and trucks are introduced; also ordering kiosks in fast-food restaurants and self-checkout in retail and grocery settings. And these technologies are just the ones you can see, unlike manufacturing robots that are taking over factories out of public view.

    There’ll be a robot religion. It’ll be a Religion of Peace of course.

      will it involve hunting down and killing ‘inferiors’ who don’t agree to become slaves?

      Because we already have a religion like that.

    Nefertiti wearing tinfoil.

    Friggin thing looks like Linda Sarsour. I suppose Sarsour wears the slave rag to hide the electronics.
