The Terminator films were just that--films. We're still many years away from even having the technology to be able to do those sorts of things with computers, and even when we are, we're almost definitely going to have regulations. Look at the regulations and restrictions that are already placed on stem cell research, despite the overwhelming potential pay-offs involved.

Stem cell research is banned because ignorant christian groups that run this country don't like abortion. To them, any time they hear the word "stem cells", they instantly connect it to "dead fetus".

Right, and there will inevitably be quite strong opposition to true AI by people who hear Artificial Intelligence and think Terminator.

First of all why the heck did you even bring this up? Secondly stem cell research doesn't even require aborted fetuses they were just a easy method to obtain them. And third and most importantly there was never a ban on the research itself. The only ban that was in place was not allowing federal funding to aid the research which has been lifted.

“These wild and speculative claims are nothing more than fear mongering and delusions of a paranoid mind. Do you remember that poor, insane woman a few years ago who was caught vandalizing Cyberdyne headquarters? She believed the company was going to cause the end of the world and said that robots from the future were out to get her. That’s the kind of mindset we’re dealing with here, pain and simple crazies.”

Yeah, that guy does seem a bit crazy. The current tech is so simple and far removed from the tech in the Terminator movies it's ridiculous.

Not saying if I'm for or against the android idea, we simply don't know how that will turn out. I'm more for the exoskeleton and other human enhancing tech (Ghost in the Shell anyone?).

Beyond that I'd rather remove the need for war altogether, but it never ends up being as simple as that. I'll take diplomacy over violence any day.

all the evolving technologies now need to be open source , like the internet and firefox .

i wouldnt mind being on an strict license and paying for it , but it should be trustable . a product deserves neither undue criticism nor undue trust and/or good faith that way , be it a robot or a software .

of course there are intellectual property issues with open sourcing , as enforcing ipr would be tougher with open source . people could study my code and use it in some other way and all that , who all would i track around the world ? ....

That makes this even more.... interesting...

Also consider there is a Japanese Cyberdyne that deals in exoskeletons and AI as well.....

And the thing says "AMD T-10"........ Either a reference to the Terminator or the beginnings....

Ok ok.. This isn't right to compare people who think people should use stem cells cause of the dead fetus to the people who don't want to much AI except for the extremist, hell all of them are stupid.

Because it actually is a reasonable arguement. Ya were years upon years away from it. But they want soldiers that can go out and kill people on their own.. Ok I get that, but if the soldiers are programed to do so whos doing the program.

As of now if an officer/nco orders a private to do something he has to do it. Unless it's unlawful. How will the robots know if it's unlawful? How do you program a robot to tell good people from bad people? When that can be very hard these days specially with the types of fights today even for us humans..

If by some chance you made AI smart, and able to learn? Why couldn't they learn what we know?

And in a related story, the lead specialist responsible for overseeing the fusion of cryogenic and cybernetic design at Cyberdyne Systems, Prof. Jane McEntegart, issued a statement during a recent product demonstration:

"The soldier of the future will be neither man or woman, it will be a machine. A hardened, exo-skeletal cybernetic structure completely surrounded by organically-faithful living skin, with the perfect vagina and boobs..."

When questioned McEntegart went on to add: "Of course, we will also have smaller 'male' versions of these rolling out, however these will be considerably inferior to the qualities which our 'female' creations will proudly display. There is nothing quite like dropping a V-bomb on your target when they least expect it."

Hmmm....

It's like the Free Masons. It's a secret society and denies any involvement in the real world, even though their higher ranked members are in high society positions. Their symbols are everywhere, even though things are not labeled "Masons". It's like they are showing their existence and power without anyone take a notice of it. The whole Washington DC is a Masonic symbol.

Maybe it's the same with the Cyberdyne, Skynet and the movie Terminator. They have showed us the future already. But we still only think it's fiction that never will happen. The fact is that almost everything that were pure science fiction fantasy in the thirties and the fourties, is reality today. Will there be a Skynet. Sure! Will there be robot cops and soldiers? Double Yes!!
