For decades now, it's been science fiction. In 2015, it's becoming a reality. I'm talking about robots and artificial intelligence taking over the world. Here's an example from just last week.
OK, maybe I exaggerated a little bit with taking over the world (we aren't there just yet) but it looks like we are well on our way. Even Elon Musk has warned us about the dangers, saying that creating Artificial Intelligence is "summoning the demon."
Today, a robot is dead after making threats against human life. OK, it's not as bad as it sounds, but it's definitely as weird. There's a case in the Netherlands that's raising serious questions about the nature of artificial intelligence and who is responsible when it causes harm.
