With the advent of Smart Phones, faster computers, etc., it's only natural, so to speak, that Artificial Intelligence will be at the top of the food chain.
Now, perhaps we won't see something in the way of
COLOSSUS or SKYNET or in the case of Person Of Interest, THE MACHINE,
taking over the world in an "evil supercomputer rebellion," but I wouldn't be surprised if AI's wouldn't
advance beyond our control, like the AI in HER, and/or evolve beyond the
need for "bodies."
The scary thing is that people are so
obsessed with their Smart Phones, that they probably wouldn't notice
that Siri may be really out to get them while playing Candy Crush.
think the Cylons are that far beyond fantasy? How about the Terminators? Or the Transformers?
I'm down for AIs running
things, as humans seem to have lost it.
