If you haven’t caught “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles“, definitely check it out tonight on FOX at 9pm Eastern.
In the meantime, I sure hope this scientist is right… that theÂ machines won’t kill us BEFORE the year 2029.
Machines will achieve human-level artificial intelligence by 2029, a leading US inventor has predicted.Â Humanity is on the brink of advances that will see tiny robots implanted in people’s brains to make them more intelligent, said Ray Kurzweil.
“I’ve made the case that we will have both the hardware and the software to achieve human level artificial intelligence with the broad suppleness of human intelligence including our emotional intelligence by 2029,” he said.
“We’re already a human machine civilisation; we use our technology to expand our physical and mental horizons and this will be a further extension of that.”
Humans and machines would eventually merge, by means of devices embedded in people’s bodies to keep them healthy and improve their intelligence, predicted Mr Kurzweil.
Do any of these folks ever stop to think if they SHOULD be doing this kind of research?Â Â Aristotle, where art thou?Â Â Are ethics even taught in our finer institutions of learning these days?
