    No, it should be high priority to get Americans back to work. We don't need intelligent roombas taking jobs away from low-skilled folks.

    Robotics have cost a lot of people their jobs and to have more of them, especially ones that think would cost more jobs and be bad for the economy.

    I think it's more important to design humans with godlike intelligence, but human intelligence machines would be tremendously useful.

    No. We should create machines that are smart enough to perform a task, but not smart enough to complain about it.

    Why would we make it a high priority? It happens when it happens.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If someone sees this as a profitable venture and wants to fund the research for it, then sure they can do it. Personally I don't think it's a good return on investment right now, so it's not a business I myself would choose to invest in, but I could be wrong. If enough people think it's a profitable venture the business will have funding and can try to create those humanlike machines.

    Absolutely not. All robots will eventually turn on their human overlords. Thus we should never monkey with AI.

    I agree 100%. Any competent artificial intelligence would recognize that humans function exactly as a parasite destroying its' host and would be compelled to rectify that problem. There is no other way to state that. It is factual. Of course, that won't stop some religion from embracing it to initiate Armageddon. Don't you think?

    It wouldn't be just the low skilled folks they would be taking jobs away from.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
