One mega disaster like a massive solar flare, super volcano, another World War, or you can name the doom and gloom. If it disrupts the power grid, and
the ability to access the internet or our computer networks. Humanity would face a real serious scenario without AI or the Rise of the Machines. Dark
Ages? They already control everything. All it took was matter of convenience.
Practically all important aspects of society are plugged-in. We are already slaves to the machines, and a matter of convenience blinds us to that
simple fact. The markets are all digital and plugged-in with economic fortunes being had and lost with a simple keystroke, manufacturing is becoming
more automated, records are being stored on large computer networks, people buy most of their stuff online, electronic purchases are exceeding cash,
and so and so forth. The machines are already running the show without even demonstrating an act of aggression. That is how I see it, and as the years
go on we just continue to be more reliant on technology. AI is are real possibility. I just hope they can pull the plug, before it starts making
decisions about how it feels about us? Survival of the fittest?
