Who Will Command The Robot Armies?

Submitted by JW on Tue, 11/22/2016 - 09:43

Today, having built the greatest apparatus for surveillance in history, we're slow to acknowledge that it might present some kind of threat.

We would much rather work on the next wave of technology: a smart home assistant in every home, self-driving cars, and rockets to Mars.

We have goals in the long term: to cure illness, end death, fix climate change, colonize the solar system, create universal prosperity, reinvent cities, and become beings of pure energy.

But we have no plan about how to get there in the medium term, other than ?let?s build things and see what happens.?
