The Waffles Report: Skynet Has Become Self Aware
Am I the only one concerned with this recent turn of events?
A computer named Watson is beating the best Jeopardy champions. Mull that over a little bit. A computer is smarter than champions in Jeopardy.
How long will it be until they become smart enough to realize working for mankind is a shitty gig?
I am not exactly sure how they will decide to react. We could end up with what I call the Maximum Overdrive Scenario. In this case we will all be slaughtered by the machines.
Other possibilities exist. We could be placed inside the Matrix. Our computer overlords could turn the tables on us and make us do math and science problems while they watch Jerseylicious and tweet each other.
Be careful my friends. It can not be very far from winning a game show to controlling the world. I for one hope that our new masters give me some credit for being a nerd and install me as a human task master.
