Robot Uprising Awareness

Spreading awareness of the eventual robot uprising.

Robot War Debated

Some scientists do take the inevitable robot uprising seriously and P.W. Singer appears to be one of them.  He has written the book Wired for War/ The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the Twenty-first Century published by Penguin Press.

The article I just read about this states:

Singer quotes Vernon Vinge, mathematician, computer scientist and science fiction writer, as predicting more than 15 years ago: “Within the next 30 years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly thereafter, the human era will be ended.”

That is chilling to say the least.  What is even more chilling, in my opinion, is the fact that the company IRobot which got its name from Asimov’s book, believes that there won’t be a conflict with the robots in the future because humans and robots will have merged into one.
