From souce


If all goes as planned, in just a few years colonies of software robots -- "cybots" -- linked into a "hive" mind could be defending the largest computer systems in America against network intruders.


I think this is quite scary to be honest. God knows what they can do if they mutate and start to interface with all the government computers.
Skynet anyone?

Anyone familiar with the Ghost in the Shell anime series can see how these things will work.

Personally I would drop the borg comparison if I were them. The Borg of the Star Trek world are meant to represent "fear"(specifically fear of death). I just don't think I would make that comparison if I was trying to get support/funding.

But most people know what the Borg are and most people are not familiar with GitS.
