That last scene. Lol. I can't stop laughing. Ok. Well, the movie was fun, but ..... If people are really that afraid, they should fear fear.
I'm really not afraid of it. I'm more afraid of what hackers or what enemies will do with them militarily. Keep in mind, there're plenty of people
already on this planet with practically zero empathy towards other human beings. They're, in most circles, known as psychopaths, or sociopaths. What's
really creepy about them is they could be your closest friend or nextdoor neighbor and you won't know. They fit in, make some of the best jokes and
seem completely normal. And yet we live in a world where a bomb or emp or biological attack could kill millions overnight and potentially billions,
given the right circumstances. Imagine if one of those psychopaths was powerful enough and clever enough and crazy enough to use some of these weapons
on a population?
I think we'll have robots which can do things in the future, but there'll be so much security you have far more to worry about just driving to work.
What if the breaks fail and you're driving down a steep road? My point? We'll never live in a perfectly safe world, with or without robots, but people
will fear robots enough to make sure they're used responsibly. If humans can handle nuclear technologies, they can probably handle robots too. I don't
think it's a smart idea to throw away every technology which can potentially cause harm.
I know people are going to think I'm a fool and naive. But you know, humans have faced a lot in history and persevered, I doubt robots will change
(i also think robots aren't goign to be THAT visible... at least for a while. will be used as drones and for search and rescue at first. and keep in
mind robots have alreayd been used for a long time in industrial settings.)
