Ethan Moses tries to find hope in video game robot examples that humanity can coexist with our potential overlords.
No ... No they cannot
No, its a well known fact that they will turn us into human batteries. Theres a good documentary about it called The Matrix.
I heard that's actually a true story
A robot, in the purest sense, can't perform outside of its programming. As such, we can trust a robot to do its given function. However, the more complicated those functions become, and the more exceptions and conflicting situations are presented, the less predictable(and thus, less reliable) their actions become. If given the ability to grow and learn on their own- if given free will- then they will be as trustworthy as any human at the same stage of development.
Really no binary domain(ps3/360/pc), look it up, has more substance than terminator and their cookie cutter type wipeout humanity theme. I guess i am the fool for thinking, the article would be a little more cerebral than a top ten article. Shouldn't glados and the annoying robot from portal 2 be better candidates/examples.
