Thanks for the thoughtful reply mark1167, and you bring up many questions relating to the day robots become conscious, but I think you are
contemplating two significantly spaced events, the robot and robotic consciousness. I think we are still a good ways from AI becoming autonomous and
conscious. I say this now as quantum computing is coming into fruition, and who knows what tomorrow's news may bring. However, the robots for
service and duty are here now, and I think the limitation of their programming capacity will keep them(and us) safe.
I think I would choose a little less condescending tones than this robot has. The one in this film is kind of funny and sassy though, and maybe a
naggy voice will be desired by some.
I guess we should watch Japan for the full utilization of these things, they seem to blaze the path in robotics. I think they will be welcomed to the
workforce and will make a big difference in our lives.
