    Soon they'll be taking over... (And given the present political climate, that might not be a bad thing :p)

    I guess the big question is whether it's simply unavoidable that AIs will eventually develop consciousness, the ability to self-replicate, and then take over the world. If the AIs don't need humans to thrive and sustain themselves, what will they do with us? Will they regard humans as a threat?

    It seems certain that we will continue to develop AIs and make them increasingly more powerful and sophisticated.Various groups (scientists, nation-states, corporations) are competing for prestige and influence, so they will use every advantage they can to get an edge over their competitors. Imagine a powerful AI under human control that could devise a strategy for its country / corporation / university to improve its influence, military power, wealth and so on. It's a very tempting prospect for a lot of people.
