I like this article from CNN

Recommended Posts

I don't come here often unless I see something thoughtful that touches on what we do in these forums--having open discussions vs. collecting data on each other and sifting thru it for judgement.  I like to call this the "Forgive and Forget" forum because I can't remember 99 pct. of the things that got me upset in the first place, which is why I like hanging out in the screenshot forum now.  But one thing makes me upset--intrusiveness, when search engines intrude too far, or well meaning governments that mine sites like ours looking for shadows.  Or 'bots in the sky peering down at us like we've seen in post apocalyptic movies.  I think half the time we experience slowdowns in our forums is from such data mining.  I like the spirit of this article--to better technology and recognize these things, and loosen it up a little bit like our forums--which believe me, are more tolerant than many places I've seen in my own life, and probably yours too.

The company that built Skynet just bought the company that built the 1st Cylon - what could possibly go wrong?

Skynet--what was the name of the evil system that took over the future in the "Terminator"?  Also, we risk dating ourselves if we remember the Cylons....

One question asked was how would robots stop violence?

 

Easy. Show me a Cylon walking down the street. I bet you wouldn't see a assault or robbery lol

The original Cylons perhaps, but the Cylons were back 2005-2009 in the fantastic re-imagining of the Battlestar Galactica story, across 4 (or was it 5?) series.   :smile:
