    There are such a wonderful robots in the world already developed, and it is going to be nuts in the future!
    Stephen Hawkings talked at the web summit in Lisbon about AI, and if robots are going to improve the humanity, or destroy it.
    Those robots are going to be a clear copy of the human, which is similar to Matrix the movie.
    What are you thinking about future with robots?

    Robots will be part of our future but just as we didn't anticipate years ago many of the scientific devices that govern and enhance life nowadays, the likelihood is that we won't accurately guess what robotic devices and AI will do for us in future years.

    I loved 'Matrix' and the concepts there but don't expect matrix-like bots to eventually dominate our world. Like as not bots will be used in many ways that have yet to emerge. Those of us old enough will remember the developmentof the common-or-garden commercial device and the uncertainty over what it might be used for. Who could ever have guessed at their ubiquitous use in commonplace electronic devices but also in the most sophisticated medical and investigational tools?

    There's nothing clear about the kind of robots that will enhance our lives.

    Consciousness does not arise from matter, but rather matter arises from consciousness. The most gigantic brain ever concocted is the world wide web, and no matter how complex and enormous it becomes there is no hint that it ever well become conscious! So AI is a curiosity, but it's not ever going to be anything other than humanity's very limited servant.

    If we build a sufficiently intelligent AI with a brain that is built like ours but overtakes ours in terms of its data processing capabilities (perhaps we use double the neurons in the regions of the brain associated with intelligence such as problem solving etc) would that AI not then become conscious and have the potential to make us it's servant? Wouldn't it essentially be indistinguishable from a supremely intelligent human?

    I'm not so sure that a fully conscious AI copy of myself couldn't be built, I see no reason why it couldn't be or what would be special about my organic brain that an AI brain couldn't replicate.
