A robot with sufficiently advanced digital programming may at times seem to be acting as an intelligent entity, but in all actuality it is simply carrying out commands pre-programmed based on algorithms given it by its programmers. Any such program can be outwitted, because the machine cannot think and plan, only anticipate from the planning incorporated into its algorithms by its programmer(s).

What makes any of you think that the robots need to "go awol" to start hunting down humans? We are doing it now in Iraq and Afghanistan with soldiers at the kill switch. Young soldiers, and we all know how those young people are now days, self centered, no morals. If the order was given to them to kill a bunch of us, who is to say that they might just do it? Hey, just sayin ! Could happen.
