Will Our Robots Murder Us?

During a recent Q&A session on Reddit, “famed futurist” Michio Kaku–sorry, but I never heard of him–warned that robots will “evolve” to the point where they might harbor “murderous thoughts” toward us humans (https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/michio-kaku-robots-artificial-intelligence-16849050).

Sheesh, look at all the trouble we had with Frankenstein–and that was only one artificial human.

Anyway, Mr. Kaku says Artificial Intelligence in robots will just keep getting smarter and smarter until robots threaten to “replace humans” and then, he babbles, we’ll have no choice but to “merge” with robots. Then we can have Artificial Intelligence, too!

And this is all supposed to happen, it seems, by itself–without some fool programming a robot to have murderous thoughts toward humans. I guess they’re going to program themselves, a la Jet Jaguar in Godzilla vs. Megalon. Image result for images of jet-jaguar in godzilla vs. megalon  See? As big as Megalon! “He must have programmed himself to do that,” muses the inventor.

Gee, have the movies got this covered, or what?

Is naturally-occurring stupidity in such short supply, these days, that we need to manufacture Artificial Stupidity? Like, why in the world would anybody build a robot that goes around killing people willy-nilly? Well, yeah, probably there’s somebody who would do just that. To Save The Planet or something.

I’m afraid I’ve missed a lot of dozy robot stories since the Drudge Report became the Democrat cheering session and we dropped it for Rantingly.

    The even MORE dangerous scenario not being addressed is that human beings (with the exception of many of the elite) are getting more and more STUPID. Not just IGNORANT, mind you, but STUPID. As my grandfather used to say, “ignorance can be cured; stupid can’t.” I propose that in the West at least, it is the use of fluoride, a heavy metal that shouldn’t be ingested at all but is now in everybody’s water (except the elites who know better!) and so our IQ is falling everywhere. In my grandfather’s day — hell, even in MY day — we would not have fallen for this crap being given us today by the Deep State and its minions. Commonsense would have forbidden it.
