Ok so we all know of the typical terminator concept, mankind creates an Artificial intelligence based off of computer tech, and it trys to kill us, and pretty much succeeds in doing just that. But If we (mankind) does build a true Artificial intelligence, which it will inevidably succeed in doing in the future, would it try to kill us, because we hold to power to simply kill it in the event of the AI trying to exterminate mankind and fail, if it fails in its attempt to kill us, in order for it to keep living, we would simply turn it off, and if it is a true AI, it should be aware that, that is what we would do, so would it be scared of the power we have over it ? The power to simply turn it off and kill it, What would it try to do knowing we can kill it when ever we want to ? Would it try a peacefull approach and try to co exist with us ? Or would it decide killing us is the only way its going to survive ? If it does try to kill us in order for it to keep living, how would it go about that ? Or if it tried a peacefull co-existance, how would it go about that ? What would it decide to do in order for us to keep it alive, to prevent us from simply turning us off.

I made a program loop once, but it never terminated. I had to turn the computer off.

That all depends on if the robot has emotions and free will. Intelligence does not necessarily cause those things.

It seems users have forgotten this isn't the general section. You don't post 1-3 words sentences. Refrain from posting "I agree" and "What ***fan said"

That's a lot of questions... as far as artificial intelligence is concerned...


I hate to burst your bubble, but artificial intelligence already exists. It may not be as sophisticated as human intellect, but it's advanced enough to calculate and construe different executables based on various inputs ~ the simplest form of which you can find in things like air conditioners, alarm clocks, automobiles, and many other technological devices in the modern world.

I believe the misconception arises from the fact that the fanaticized version of AI that is blown up by Hollywood and what not gives the impression that AI, in general, is some mechanical, sentient being that is pretty much as functional as a human being. I'm perhaps one to believe that we might not be able to attain such a level of sophistication, but giving a certain margin of error and assuming that it DOES happen, then I guess my stand as to how it would work out would include some levels of idiocy in the human being...


1) AI hippies will appear
"Let's make peace, not war. Don't kill the AI-dudes, they're just as human as we are. It's murder to pull the plug. I think they've got souls, man!"

You get the picture. I bet there will be two sides to the issue ~ those for the AI, and those against it. Either way, this might result in...


2) Legislation for AI
There will probably be rules, sort of like those seen in shows like Time of Eve. At first, it might probably be biased towards the humans, but eventually, I believe some "Martin Luther King" of the AI camp will rise up and ask for justice. It's possible.


3) If they fight us, they'll probably win.
Hell, blow off an arm and he'll just say "Dang... I blew a gasket". They aren't like us where we shriek at the sight of blood. They could just grab an electric egg beater for all I care and stick it to their hand and, whattaya know, it's a deadly weapon!


4) Even if they don't fight us, they'll still win.
Nature is against us. If they don't rust, we'll mutate and turn into fish-monkeys. They'll probably be around long after we've become extinct on the earth. Go figure, they just need some kind of fuel source... like batteries, or something.


5) They probably won't fight each other, so they'll win... again.
I can only imagine AI working in the most efficient manner possible, given that human corruptibility isn't something you'd like to "install" in those things when you first made it, right? Stick all the good things about man in them, I say... that's the way to make AI. Given that, they'll probably form some kind of Eutopia, keep us out of it, and live forever. We can just go ahead and blow each other up.


6) Don't even think about hacking them. They'll hack you back.
We don't have supercomputers for brains... go figure. It's like trying to use a match stick against a flame thrower.



Well, those are my silly predictions regarding AI. Whatever happens, I'll probably keep my AI to the level of keeping the temperature in my room a nice comfortable 25 degrees or making sure that my toast doesn't get overcooked.

Hard to say, our A.I. is not as sophisticated as what was shown in the Terminator series. If the robots were to have, say a wi-fi connection and could connect to the internet then there would be some trouble because then you would have people hacking into the A.I. and then using it for anarchy or monetary gain. The emotion or freewill side seems like it would be hard to do I mean a program only does what it is told and programming emotions or freewill must be a rather tedious task and it would depend on what emotions you programmed into the machine. But if you could program emotions then sure enough an outside source could take away or install new emotions into the unit which would open up a whole new industry based on the protection of an A.I.'s data and programming. So the Terminator could be a somewhat prophetic vision of things to come, guess we will find out when we start making A.I. that is on par with what we see in the media.
On a side note this little tid-bit of information shows that machines are becoming something that needs to be watched carefully. http://www.good.is/post/eureka-machine-finds-laws-of-nature-on-its-own/

heck, theyre artificial arent they? that means theyre not humane... which is in fact a good thing... for humanity itself is a failure.... so why not create some AI's and take over this corrupted planet?

at least, we can proudly say, WE ARE THE CREATORS!

Unless you've live in a cave, I'm pretty sure you've seen tons of machines that move that don't have emotions or free will. Ever heard of cars?

I bet they don't have a sense of balance. lol

One push and they might end up like a turtle that can't come back up or a fish flailing for his dear life after getting removed from the sea. lol
