Artificial Intellingence: The Future Threat?

A few months ago I wrote a short piece on artificial intelligence and automation. My focus being that as those took on more and more roles in our lives, and became more independent, we'll face a real crisis in employment.

The American Prospect has a short interview with the author of a book on robotics and artificial intelligence discussing a slightly different aspect to technology: when we develop intelligence smarter than we are, might it be a threat not just to jobs but perhaps our lives? 

As the writer points out, how do we treat creatures a bit less intelligent than we are? We put them in zoos.

Another fun read brought to my attention by the Rational Review News Digest.

A not so fun look at artificial intelligence - Morgellons disease. Just GOOGLE it and while you're at it try "self replicating nano robotics". A real wake up call. Then connect the dots to "Chemtrails" . . . . .

Collosus: the Forbin Project. 1970 movie where two giant computer systems join together to take control of the world and do away with wet body schtupnagels.
