It would not surprise me, if AI got to the point where it can learn advanced things quickly, robots would quickly take over the human race. Basically when robots have the knowledge to build other robots, that have a much higher IQ and knowledge than humans, we are screwed.
I think this stuff should be taken with extreme caution, however if mankind ever advances that far, I would not be surprised if some type of Skynet DID happen.

Sure you can program them to "learn" and "think", but it will never be close to what our "thinking" and "learning" is.
You really need to think outside of the box. What our technology is at now will be far inferior and different than what it will be 100 years from now. As I said up above, 200-300 years ago they would of never dreamed of the stuff we have now as possible. Just because it is not possible right now
, does not mean technology advancements won't make it possible in the future
No offense, but right now your thinking on this subject is very linear. Look at the whole grand scheme of things. You can't sit there and tell us you know what the future will bring, or what advancements the human race will make. It's just not possible.Edited by Murlocke - 8/2/11 at 8:27am
