    Default When Machines become Self-Aware

    "When machine self awareness first occurs, it will be followed by self-improvement, which is a critical measurement of when things get interesting.... Improvements would be made in subsequent generations which for machines can pass in only a few hours"

    "Asimov's three laws of robotics (referred to in the movie I-Robot) become difficult to obey once robots begin programming one another, removing the human input"

    (Scientific American May, 2010)

    The upshot of this article is that once robots get into the business of programming themselves humans are toast. The article also quotes Will Wright creator of Sims games as saying this could happen in our lifetime.

    Bit drunk at the momeny but bear with me
    Theres a lot if thinks going to happen in next generation
    "AI , machines becoing self aware or at least so fast that they think they self aware"
    "Scienists able to create and mainapuate life"
    "scienists able to use human brain waves "
    Scienists able to download human thought"
    Nanotech
    supercomputers
    robotics
    etc


    When you take all these things together, AI, Nano, bio,DNA,
    One wonders about the future
    If we had one race and one goverment worldwide with ablity
    to regulate then maybe we have a one hope in a thousand
    but with the world spilt into different races, reglions, power blocs and rogue states
    then whats to stop the genie coming out out of the bottle????
    bioweapons, grey goo etc...
    i.e."we must develop this cos otherwise the chinese will do it"?

    The future of humanity is doubtful

    If machines become self aware and if Machines have control
    over the defence grids they will logically analysis
    the planet sit-rep and decide your fate in a nano-second
    i.e. wipe us out

    In a Morecambe and Wise sketch a supercomputer became self aware and decided it could do without humanity. Eric pulled the plug on it.

    starting to sober out
    why am i not in bed????

    There won't be time to pull plug

    sequnce of events
    1:Machine goes self aware
    2:machine decides to wipe us out
    3:machine gains control of "defence grids"
    4:bio weapons launched


    latest super computer


    2009 Cray Jaguar 1.759 PFLOPS DoE-Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, USA
    1.759 PFLOPS thats petaflops or 10,000,000,000,000,000 instructions a second , we are already there

    combine this computing with AI and other biotechs and
    its game over
