robots and the singularity

hello once again internet and welcome to yet another tech time with Scarlett. today we are going to be talking about ROBOTS! I have  a few questions concerning this particular branch of humanoid technology that I think we should be made aware of. lets go …

  1. first up on the list is movies. particularly sci-fi and fantasy movies. these movie genres mention robots a lot but not always in the nicest ways. for example in the movie terminator, the whole premise is that there is a half man half robot who is programmed to kill this young woman. if we make robots and use them in our daily lives then what’s to stop them from programming the robots to turn around and kill us in our sleep, I don’t think I need to remind you that there are bad people in 2015 so it is a possibility. Even if that wasn’t a possibility it still gives the robots a bad reputation and makes people very paranoid about going to bed at night.terminatorThe Terminator (1984) BD
  2. secondly is the possibility of the singularity. what I mean by the singularity is that there will come a time where scientists will become so advanced in technology that they will be able to fuse our bodies with machines and turn us into robots so that we can live forever. that is what I like to call MY WORST NIGHTMARE! I don’t know about you but if I was fused with metal and made into a machine I wouldn’t exactly be happy about it, it would mean that we would live for so long that eventually we would outlast the world and then there would be no more earth and worse still, you would have to watch the world die with absolutely no way of stopping it. that’s sad, also I don’t think metal would be a good look for me, it might make my butt look a little big. this blog is going to cross into the territory of things I like to call “deep stuff” so, you know if you don’t like “deep stuff then go check out the ten hour long version of the pink fluffy unicorn song and forget this blog exists, you still here? awesome then lets get on to the 3rd and final reason for why I don’t like robots
  3. finally, roots are bad news because the growing science could become too dangerous. What I mean by this is the fact that there is always a downside to   technology in terms of how far technology will then propel after it is built, once robots have been built there’s no telling what scientists are gonna think of  next, the other downside would also be that scientists are not capable of dealing with the amount of new technology there is and then there would be a massive technological uprising with humanity and robots locked in a deadly battle, humans would perish, computers would smash, the world would be shattered and it would be all our fault. ok I think I need to get out of this rabbit hole and back… into the reality
well there we have it folks, another blog. hopefully I haven’t completely traumatised you with disturbing images of me as a robot or of a technological war breaking out. before I finish I wanted to give a quick shout out to one of my coolest friends, Jeff. Jeff is a massive fan and a huge supporter of this website, he has told lots of people about it and has helped me to develop a steady website . I really am very grateful for all the wonderful things you have been saying about me Jeff, thanks so much for enjoying my blogs and I strongly encourage you to keep reading, there will be another blog tonight as this one is technically Saturdays one so check the website. that covers everything, thanks again to everyone for reading and I will see you all a little later

  1. sorry guys wrong definition of the singularity here is the Wikipedia version for you now
    The technological singularity is a hypothetical event related to the advent of genuine artificial general intelligence (also known as “strong AI”). Such a computer, computer network, or robot would theoretically be capable of recursive self-improvement (redesigning itself), or of designing and building computers or robots better than itself on its own. Repetitions of this cycle would likely result in a runaway effect – an intelligence explosion – where smart machines design successive generations of increasingly powerful machines, creating intelligence far exceeding human intellectual capacity and control. Because the capabilities of such a super intelligence may be impossible for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is the point beyond which events may become unpredictable or even unfathomable to human intelligence.
    hope that solves any problems xx
