I absolutely hate the idea of a true artificial intelligence, especially one with the ability to move about. The only reason they bothered with this one was to eventually make a walking robot with a human brain. How long before it learns to use a gun? If it's American probably 10 seconds.

Technology is supposed to be dumb. Like a computer, sure it can do things a million times faster than a human, but in the end it can't think or move. It's effectively the ultimate slave.

I know I won't be alive by the time technology is able to learn and think, but I hope people are smart enough to ensure it has no possibility of causing us harm. And I don't mean this stupid idea of the "Robot Laws" because that's nothing but code and all code can be cracked. Technology needs physical barriers, like a computers inability to move, or how Asimo is half the size of a fully grown man.

You cannot ignore that, once intelligent robots become self-sufficient (they can build and maintain themselves), humans would become supernumerary and burdensome and pure logic would necessitate their removal from existence.

Well, you can ignore it.

But you can't escape it.

That's what I was trying to get across. Once robots determine that humans are inferior and not able to keep up with a robot's efficiency level, it'll spell the end of the human race.

have any of you stopped to consider that such a scenario hinders on human fallability, and really, if human stupidity is going to kill us all, a scenario in which some slack-jawed idiot who got the job cause of some influential relative in politics was put in charge of guarding some semi dormant old nuke accidently sets it off, it's headed for north korea or whatever nuclear power house opposes the US by that time, they retaliate in kind and the world is over. This is a far more likely outcome, than something that sounds like it came out of a terminator flick.

First of all, that ignores the safeguards which are in place (it is literally impossible to accidentally launch a missile, they aren't even kept fueled and need a set of permission codes from AFSPC to even begin fueling), and the fact that the only country that can respond is Russia. No one else possess the range.

But more to the point, that's not particularly relevant to the topic at hand--which is, robots.
