Oh sure, we’ve accepted the fact that autonomous cars and trucks are well on the way. We’re pseudo-accepting that future, sort-of, for now. We’ve blindly welcomed the internet and mobile technology into every single aspect of our lives, from refrigerators, cars, TVs, and sprinkler systems to home security systems, ovens, HVAC, and pet feeding stations. Everyone loves their all-knowing, always listening Amazon Echo Alexas and Google Home hubs too.
I’m being too pessimistic right? Too fearful and worrisome?
OR AM I? No, I don’t think I am. What I am worried about is that while the robots are coming faster than we can comprehend, all I keep hearing about are the pathetic ideas the non scientific world keeps touting. While organizations like Boston Dynamics is coming up with robots that can do Parkour better than I could ever hope to do, what do us mere mortals spend our time imagining we’ll accomplish with robots?
Oh yeah, ROBOT SEX BROTHELS. Ah yes, but of course!
We are so done. If the global warming doesn’t get us first, the robots certainly will.
Power down. I’ll get the lights as we slip into complete darkness for all eternity.
