Sorry for the really late blog, had a ton of other stuff to do (such as playing Xbox and testing out the newest kick-ass game of the year Assassin’s Creed 2... Woops, I mean studying for exams). Anyways, yes I actually have been busy with a lot of other school work and haven’t had time to post any new blogs so I’ll make it up to you guys somehow (I’ll probably post 2 blogs up instead of one to keep you updated).
So anyways, I was flicking through the channels the other day and started watching this Will Smith movie called “I, Robot”, which I haven’t seen in ages since it came out in theatres. When I started to watch it, I sat there thinking to myself, “How cool would it be to have a robot for a best friend?”. I mean, seriously, think about it – You could have someone who could do all your chores, help you with your homework, and even keep you occupied when you’re bored. As I was sitting there thinking about this, I was horrified when I saw the robots turn evil in the movie. They were destroying everything in the city on a rampage, trying to take over the world. That’s when I thought it might not be so cool to have a robot as a best friend after all. I mean, what if they malfunction or their brains develop so much that they begin to think for themselves and turn around on the humans? That might turn out to be a bit of a disaster.
But yeah, that’s my only concern about robots being too advanced in the future. Other than that, I wouldn’t mind living with them, just as long as they don’t, you know, destroy the whole world and enslave all of humankind. What are your opinions on humanity’s pursuit of artificial intelligence? Do you think it’s a good or bad thing?
