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.

I didnt know AMD was behind skynet, its those damn opterons that made it self aware. Sarah conner had it wrong, she needs to bomb AMD headquaters.
Terminator 4 was a good movie btw.

Exactly what I was thinking - the irony. Even more so, the guy's last name in the article "Dyson" - the chief AI designer in the second movie was Miles Dyson lol.

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.”
I guess May 23rd is the new April fools day. If any1 seriously thinks this is real......um......... Ur sad.

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.

hope people realize the meaning and importance of "open source" when talking about things such as software and even a.i . i would even like to pay for software but it should be open source for the sake of being sure it wasnt doing anything that i did not want it to do .

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 ? ....
