When Robots Rule


For 200,000 years mankind’s intelligence has given us superiority over all other life on Earth, allowing us to rule unchallenged. That is about to change. With exponential evolution in computer processing power, artificial intelligence is rapidly catching up, and some believe the power of machine minds will soon be greater than that of humans. What happens if superintelligent machines, with their total control over our communication, infrastructure and military systems, develop their own desires and pursue their own agendas? We turn to those who are monitoring the situation closely, an elite group that includes renowned physicists, military analysts and futurists, to try and predict what may happen if someday our servants become the masters.
