Question of the Week #223

How would you feel if you knew that within a century, intelligent machines would be self-aware and much smarter and more creative than humans? Why?

I’d feel okay with that. Because in a century, I won’t be around anymore and it really won’t be my problem. So when our children’s children are all plugged into the Matrix, I’ll be dead and gone.

In the meantime, here’s a glimpse of the future thanks to Boston Dynamics. Please, excuse the language that has been bleeped out…
