Unless I was played as well ofcourse.

purposefully keep civilian society "back in time" 50+ years in order to ensure the USA has an edge over our enemies, foreign and domestic.
Sorry to post this again, but I hadn't made it clear why I had posted this link in the first place (and I don't seem to be able to edit my older post). The section titled "Beyond anthropomorphism" argues very strongly that machine intelligence, whether designed or evolved, will not come to possess any evolved human traits, in contrast to some of the arguments made in this thread. If you can't find the time to read any other part of this document (it is very long), give "Beyond anthropomorphism" a look through. If you are interested in the subject, you'll find it fun to read, perhaps enlightening.

For anyone interested in machine intelligence, especially about its potential friendliness (or unfriendliness), I very highly recommend reading this: singinst.org...
It is a long read, but raises some extremely interesting points.
And then of course is the fact that they'd only need the idea. The thought process behind it. After that the think tanks take it from there on.
Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization.
The first ever 3-D human brain "atlas" is on the horizon. Last year, neuroanatomist jacopo annese and his team at UofC San Diego's Brain Observatory slice a human brain into 2401 ultrathin slivers. Now they're mounting the slices onto glass slides and staining them to reveal the organs neurons and connective fibers, after which they will digitally scan the slides and reassemble them intoa zoomable 3-D model that will illustrate the anatomy of the entire region at a cellular level. In time they will continue to add examples of healthy and diseased brains, which should help physicians spot the differences between them.
1 - yes, we will evolve our tech to a point where we will die and they will rise, thats a fact, why do we need bodies anyway? we wont exist in a distant future, thats the evolution, there will be only virtual worlds and virtual intelligence
2 - we may already be only virtual in the sense to only exist in this "world" or dimension - there is no way to prove that we are real or that we are "solid"
3 - in a close future, there wont be games, there will be lives that you can play, and that will be just amazing if you stop to think ...
And if you created each cell in a program to do the work of its RL counter part, would you have a digital human brain working like a human?
