The wonderful world of video games awaits you. Console or PC. Old school or new school. Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo. It doesn't matter. We don't discriminate.

Indeed. We have so many stories that tell us it will be a bad idea, yet we keep going forward with robot artificial intelligence. Now we'll have a repository where they can all "learn" what the others learn. It brings out the nerdy conspiracy theorist in me, but I'm afraid we'll have something like the Borg or the Sentinels from X-Men in no time. ;_; </endoftheworldconspiracytheory>

Seriously. You'd think these engineers would have read or watched some robot-related sci-fi and would have addressed the potential dangers rather than highlighting stupid bullshit tasks that any underpaid human can do. I highly doubt this will be developed exclusively for civilian use anyway. The technology will probably have to prove it mettle in the battlefield first, because some dickheaded politician's gonna want to test out his expensive new toys. Let's see what these guys can really do, right? Then market it to the public as cutting edge tech.

This sounds an awful lot like the geth from the Mass Effect universe, who communicate through a universal network just like one this article is describing; or even cylons from BSG. Only we aren't advanced enough to have a last resort exodus from the planet should they succeed in taking over.

While advances in technology are exciting, I sometimes wonder whether anyone ever bothers to think things through. The speed in which technology goes obsolete, I think, blinds people from pondering and extrapolating possible pitfalls in the long run, and instead spend too much energy trying to outgun the competition for profits now.

Yeah definitely. I think people just think that it's science fiction, so there's nothing we can learn from it. You hit the nail on the head with this:

"While advances in technology are exciting, I sometimes wonder whether anyone ever bothers to think things through. The speed in which technology goes obsolete, I think, blinds people from pondering and extrapolating possible pitfalls in the long run, and instead spend too much energy trying to outgun the competition for profits now."

Randomly, this conversation makes me realize I need to pick Mass Effect back up again. I'm only about 10-12 hours into it.

I was messing around on Wikipedia today and found this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_among_the_Machines

We refer to the question: What sort of creature man’s next successor in the supremacy of the earth is likely to be. We have often heard this debated; but it appears to us that we are ourselves creating our own successors; we are daily adding to the beauty and delicacy of their physical organisation; we are daily giving them greater power and supplying by all sorts of ingenious contrivances that self-regulating, self-acting power which will be to them what intellect has been to the human race. In the course of ages we shall find ourselves the inferior race.

...

Day by day, however, the machines are gaining ground upon us; day by day we are becoming more subservient to them; more men are daily bound down as slaves to tend them, more men are daily devoting the energies of their whole lives to the development of mechanical life. The upshot is simply a question of time, but that the time will come when the machines will hold the real supremacy over the world and its inhabitants is what no person of a truly philosophic mind can for a moment question.



Written in 1863 yet still fresh and relevant as ever. I wonder what the world will be like in another 150 years.

I know I should have responded to this long before now, but wow, that really sounds like it could be written now. As you said, it'd be interested to see how it'd look 150 years from now.
