    Like "Deep Thought" and calculating the answer to life, the universe and anything? (42 by the way). The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy addressed that I thought very well already.

    The lessons of the movie Terminator and or Blade Runner - but I think the assumption is only if the machines actually gained consciousness and were self aware and had human like emotions because we humans do much of what we do out of fear, and NOT out of logic. Therefore I think it's very unlikely of a armageddon by intelligent robot.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think all of the Singularity-Is-Near folks need to get their heads examined. Just sayin.

    no. we should design self-replicating, carbon-eating nanobots first.

    Homo Sapiens is just a necessary intermediate step in the evolution of life from carbon based to silicon based. Once the silicon based life forms develop super human intelligence, humans will no longer be necessary.

    If you were to invest that kind of money, I would hope you would set your sights a little higher then mere "humanlike intelligence"

    Humans evolved our need to survive, reproduce, seek pleasure, and gain power through our interpersonal relationships. Even a self-aware, intelligent artificial mind is unlikely to copy our values unless we model them after ourselves.

    For example, if "Deep Thought" achieved true consciousness, his consciousness would likely be an accessory to his programming in the same way human consciousness seems to function as an accessory to our more primal feelings and drives. In short, it would become conscious to the extent consciousness makes it a better chess player.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I think we should end production of post hole diggers, bobcats, cranes, and all automobiles.

    Hire extra people to dig your holes (yes, it'll be slower and less consistent);
    Hire extra people to move your dirt (yes, it'll be much slower);
    Hire extra people to lift your objects with a rope and pulley (yes, we won't build as high and it will be more dangerous);
    Hire people to carry other people on their backs (yes, it will be slower, but it'll be safer for the driver and we can all make new friends).

    Maybe the terminator can figure out how to make a profit by selling our stuff only to ourselves and buying most stuff from other countries when we should be selling our stuff to other counties and buying more stuff from ourselves.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    We should also get rid of shovels and axes too, those pesky progressive tools, we don't need them!

    I think it should be a high priority to expand the frontiers of human knowledge, which would be a prequisite for such an undertaking.
