    Good thing that all we have now is amplified stupidity. Skynet is in no danger.

    How greedy!
    Aren't they satisfied with current intelligence?

    Currently most people are idiots.... Or at least they're behaving that way. Racism, global warning, homophobia, religious intolerance are failures of humanity. They are a mental cancer. Technology is the least of our concerns and possibly our last hope.... Stop waiting for the rapture and let humans get smart.

    Not to be mean but I honestly think that some humans are so dumb they don't deserve a life or mind, so erasing whatever they are and replacing them with and AI will benefit humanity a lot better and make life easier. I don't want to be evil, but it's true. We all know a lot of people are waste, so if we take intelligence farther than our own abilities to comprehended, we can install these intelligences in our minds maybe some day and perhaps make humans smarter, wiser, and more intellectual then we were destined to be. But this seems too "evil" for most people.

    This is all relative to your measure of power.

    For repetitive tasks across, say..millions of customers...that's what we have computers for.

    Is the human machine capable of more insight? Well, sure. Complexity in real time? Sure.

    AI will evolve.

    I hang this on my bathroom mirror so I can see it every morning when I wake up. True story.

    They cancelled AI though. Are they seriously bringing it back?
    Seriously though, why shouldn't we evolve outselves?


    Artificial intelligence has hardly been cancelled. It, too, is an important part of our evolution.

    More than ever before, we DO have the ability to evolve ourselves, but, as has been the case for centuries, holders of false belief systems (religion / cults / superstition) will continue to cling to the unbelievable and object to advancements in science.

    Synthetic biology is making huge leaps, many of which the religion nuts will not embrace. Need a new lung, kidney, or heart, that exactly matches the ones you have now genetically. Well, we have that science NOW.

    Through the use of modern genetic science we have the ability to turn genes on and off NOW. We have the ability to prevent many diseases, and to fix many others, but, will we.

    However, interestingly, natural selection no longer plays as huge a role in the evolution of humans. Now, folks with flawed genes can survive with modern medicine. Natural selection has been removed in those cases. The weak now survive.

    Recently, using synthetic biology, a cure for malaria was created. The creators did not patent it. Instead, they placed that technology into the public domain / open source when they could have made billions. (Just as the inventor of the polio vaccine did.)

    The second project of that same group created a way to make gasoline from bacteria. That one...they patented. The technology makes fossil fuels irrelevant, to be honest. I'm seen the process on Discovery. Pretty neat stuff.

    Religion will hinder our advancement as a species, at nearly every level. We need to let false belief systems continue to fade.
