In the Future, self producing humanoid cyborgs all over the world will laugh at your archaic projections of them.

Seven BILLION humans and counting, and robots are going to take over, take over what ? Any manufacturing job that robots can do, they are already doing it, but, even in the car industry, humans still have to fit wind shields, wiring looms, make the seats, and all the other jobs that take a specialised arm (human) to do.
I really would like to see a robot clean a cows udder and affix the milking machine !
Lets see a robot pick a cabbage and trim it, or lettuce...


Those aren't so difficult eventually to roboticize with enough imaging processing. But they may be more expensive than people for a very long time. Things we need humans for are tasks which involves understanding human culture and desires, and instilling deep creativity and drive.

If AI gets somewhat intelligent, what is the capability of humans who are augmented by implanted AI? Much, much higher than machines alone. Humans have the wants, the desires, the will and the understanding---and in a competitive world for resources, fame and status, whoever is #1 will be winning. Pure machine intelligence is so far behind.

Fear Chinese genome engineering (they have no odd Western moral problems, and are willing to work communally for the success and glory of their country) long before Skynet. Khan Noonian Singh's augments, upgraded DNA and upgraded implants, are what to fear. When every one is the genius, will, and power of Gaius Julius Caesar times Isaac Newton times Muhammad Ali.

When Chinese augments dominate every Olympic event because "doping" is in their DNA, and every intellectual competition....

Stories like this make me hate the fact that I am a mere pleb. The elites will get personal robot slaves and immortality. They will ride around the universe piloting entire planets until the very end. Meanwhile, all I can do is sit around and wait for cancer or some fringe group to take me. /sigh

A part of me is always a bit excited about these developments...

My soul is fed up with these biological containers which are slow, stupid, incompetant, weak, terribly fragile and short lived. The only valuable thing about them is delving into the experience of physical sensation, hormones and emotions... but even that, after a few thousand years, well, you've explored all angles of those and you kinda want to move on to new experiences.

I'm already feeling curious about what it will be like in a robot that can heal itself. Surely, the first few generations there will be freaked out human containers trying to destroy them all. Flesh always fears transformation and growth, birth and death. We all know that by now.

Nicely said. The future wont be as grand as we're hoping. Warring while Exploring and Advancing forward seem Oxymoron to me.
