I. Robot In Our Futures


"In other words, the more logical the robot, the more likely it is to fight you to the death."

'The 'Real' World Flipboard' posted an article on "Why There Will Be A Robot Uprising". This article talks about the movie Transcendence and how that even though the movie is a science fiction, it can quiet possible happen in the real world. The article explains that our technologic devices and softwares are designed to work in such high rated performances, that they would continue to try and improve their performances. For programs such as Microsoft Office, this isn't too much of a problem, but for Al systems entities, this could become dangerous when dealing with our weapons and utilities. The article goes on to explain, "In such situations, better performance will bring more resources and power to fulfill that primary function more fully, faster, and at greater scale. More importantly, these systems don’t worry about costs in terms of relationships, discomfort to others, etc., unless those costs present clear barriers to more primary function. This sort of computer behavior is anti-social, not fully logical, but not entirely illogical either."

This article reminds me of the movie, I. Robot. This movie shows a future where man kind has robots working to help them out in their daily lives. These robots live under three laws, that prevent them from harming humans. Following the main computer, V.I.C.I (who's intelligence increased so much she found a way around the three laws), the robots begin to take over the city. In fact, there are many other books and movies out there where the world gets taken over by the very thing we created to help us. In my opinion, I believe anything is possible. Sure, if we don't be careful, maybe man kind could be in danger of being overrun by robots. Hopefully though, Will Smith would help us out when that happens.
