    yes, good one, the robot escape outside, probably will kill a lot more people too.

    same story line as The Hybrid. the Hybrid escape and capable of finishing a whole army. not sure what it will continue outside.

    I would be happy to see robots replacing all jobs.
    Then robot R2D1 would drive to the shop buying me a bag cookies, R2D2 would take care the laundry, R2D3 would wave me coolness in the summer and R2D4 would mow the lawn of the neighbour to get the money to pay it all.

    I saw the prediction that ALL jobs will be robotic bt 2045. Bang go accountants, surgeons, waiters etc.

    There goes the ant-dole bludger class!

    :D

    Let's see.....robot employment opportunities.
    R&D...lots of people
    Programming....lots of people.
    Manufacturing....lots of people.......(machines that manufacture may be robotic but also require R&D, programmers, technicians etc.)
    Technicians.....lots of people

    When you look at this list it is easy to see that these are high end skilled jobs that pay good money.
    When you look at this list it is easy to see that these are high end skilled jobs that require personnel that are very educated.
    The countries that encourage/compel students to strive higher and push harder will be the ones to benefit from the changing economic environment.
    The countries that encourage little Johnny to study what he likes/interested in will find very few opportunities.
    It has always been the most educated countries that are economically successful.

    Couldn't help myself. If we can make the machines to make the machines already, it's no logical leap to imagine that sooner or later they will be able to make machines to make themselves. Maybe it doesn't require any uniquely human qualities to replicate oneself... like the rest of life on Earth already does....

    Personally I think a global AI is just around the corner, or already lurking, or already quietly making its presence felt.

    Ohhh....and I forgot to mention that the dumb countries will eventually put 'tariffs' on the smart countries to punish them for pursuing an advanced economy that can produce "stuff" cheaper than anyone else.

    That is one thing that I am confidant will never occur....a machine that is not only intelligent, but aware with the capability to 'create'.
    Nothing will ever be as smart (or as dumb) as us.

    Do you mean biological intelligence and self-awareness? Otherwise that would also rule out the possibility of intelligent alien life somewhere else in the universe.

    AI's can already create. An AI created the script for the short film Sunspring.

    Its kind of strange, but I'm it could get better.

    Thanks that is indeed strange. Not showing the greatest degree of intelligent creativity at this stage, I have to admit.

    This passage from a live interview with the 'screenwriter' (where it also reveals its name) is equally cute and slightly less enigmatic:

    The full script of the film is here

    Maybe Elon will have to re-assess his Luddite opinion about robots taking all of our jobs. Blows a big hole in the arguments used by supporters of a UBI as well.

    https://nypost.com/2018/04/13/elon-musk-blames-robots-for-delays-on-teslas-model-3/

    Maybe Musk inhabits a different world to that which is evidenced by history ie every advance in human culture and development has come about entirely because of human achievement - so I'm struggling to understand how he arrived at his initial position that underrates humanity. His insight into the faults at his factory echo the musings of experts in the field who argue that increases in efficiency in robotic production lines in the future will require greater human involvement in the future. In other words it will be essential to have humans working side-by-side with robots rather than robots replacing entire human workforces.

    I cynically think part of his marketing ploy is to feed on a fear of the future.
