From an article last year about the future of artificial intelligence:
Although Hollywood often likes to present us with a world full of self-aware and destructive robots in the style of I Robot, this is not the way the science of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is headed, says British Computer Society President and ECS Professor of Artificial Intelligence Nigel Shadbolt.
But, concludes Professor Shadbolt: â€˜You donâ€™t need to worry about the robot next door deciding to make a bid for world domination!â€™
LIKELY story, “Professor” Shadbolt. Funny, there are some facts missing from your little report:
- When was your last physical?
- How come there is no record, in any online database, of you ever bleeding?
- Why so interested in defending the robots, if they’re not self-aware and thus don’t need defending?
I’m watching you, “Professor”.
P.S. Shadbolt? It’s like you’re not even trying to invent a real-sounding name.
