This poster should make you stop and think.
I think the reason it is discounted and make fun of by so many is if one takes the time to think though this topic the logical conclusions are truly
realistic and scary.
I think this due to 4 things in life I have experienced to witch only one is directly related to sci-fi movies.
When I got married in 1999 I went on my honeymoon to disneyworld. There I saw a movie used fully articulate T-800.
The detail was amazing. It dwarfed me (I am 6"2" and at that time 225). The only thing that showed it was not "real" was the chromed cables
comming out the back. However the detail was so good that all you needed was a small computer control and power source. NOTE that is all to be a true
When my first daughter was born every mental event was a suprise. Like when at 2 she went all that time with limited one-word communication. Then out
of the blue she said a 3 sylable word (halloween) and communicated in full sentences.
When my second was a preme with some brain damage any and all typical milestones (with or without help) were unexpected (enjoyed) and even the experts
I watched (remember I am over 40) many of todays kids and young adults that go ape when their tablet/smart phone/FB/internet connection is not
available. We see even doing basic math without a calculator/app gives 17 year olds at mcD problems. Or that now if you don't have u-tube to go to no
one can seem to find how to do (ex) home repair. In short no one seems to know what books are for.
Now how does this relate to a terminator situation...PLENTY.
It shows we have become dependent on computers to the point that such things as basic math and using (gasp) BOOKS for information is laughed at.
We spend more and have more technology than food in alot of homes.
We are developing robots to be stronger, faster, and smarter for MILITARY applications AKA WAR/KILLING/BREAKING THINGS to a level that is kept secret
from the public.
We know and have studied children/childhood development. But something as simple as a baby saying MAMA cannot be predicted. However we think we can
know, predict, control when a AI becomes self aware?
But yet we think we can control our creations at all times?
Are we so arrogant to think that AI is only limited to what we program into it?
BTW that is called a computer and not what true AI/ AI development is all about.
Do we think that if AI does become a reality it cannot be evil, good, paranoid, self centered, or suffer mental issues?
Please look into the abyss as it were doubters.
If you achieve AI it is no different than a bioligical entity. It maybe only made of mental and chips. But if it functions like a bioligical brain
than its potential is the same as us at a minimum.
There is no guarnentee that it will not be another einstein, hitler, hanibal lector, or a paranoid boyfriend.
Now add we are more dependent on tech , give it armor/weapons greater than ourselfs, and more control of other tech and how do you not see a
"terminator 3" world?
I know we cannot stop progress or evolution.
But lets not be in such a hurry to create want at present we cannot understand, much less hope to control.
Just remember what we did to ourselves playing with x-rays/radiation in the 1900-1940's.
How much needless injury and death happened?
That could not think for itself or built like a terminator.
