“Brooks, chief technical officer at iRobot, the firm thatmakes the first mass-produced robotic vacuum cleaner, says there’ll never be a robot takeover because by then, people will be part computer, part human.


“We are creating something exciting and new, a technology that might just transform humans’ role in their world, perhaps even create a new species,” Singer concludes. “But this revolution is mainly driven by our inability to move beyond the conflicts that have shaped human history from the very start. Sadly, our machines may not be the only thing wired for war.”//yahoo//CARL HARTMAN, For The Associated Press


“”They [unmanned systems] lower the threshold for going to war. They make it easier, make war more palatable,””With no more draft, no more declaration of wars, no tax or war bonds, and now the hope that the Americans at risk are just going to be more and more American machines, we must worry that the already lowering bars to war may well hit the ground.”//wired interview


Robots are machines that are built upon what researchers call the “sense-think-act” paradigm.”


Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
