|Sophia - friendlier than Trump?|
Seriously, that's her in in the photo on the right (do I really need to say she's the one on the left?). Of the two which one would you trust more?
Before you answer check out Sophia in action in the video below.
|I'd still trust this|
guy over Trump.
However, her scarily real and very life-like features suggest that we're probably only a few years away from Terminators. In fact, between separate companies, we already have almost all the components. We're just waiting for someone with enough money to put them all together.
Boston Dynamics is perhaps a few design tweaks away from the perfect skeleton base with its Atlas robot.
From there it's just a question of getting the artificial intelligence right (still probably the biggest hurdle to date) but judging by Arnie's Terminator in the very first movie... well, it doesn't need to be too much smarter than being able to identify a target and fire a gun.
With all that we know publically about the rise and development of robots who's to say some private investor hasn't already bank rolled an actual Terminator and is using it to try and take over the world?
Wait a minute... that hair, that penchant for making things up as he goes, promoting higher gun ownership, that plan to build a wall, that ambition to run one of the world's biggest nations... could Donald Trump be a robot terminator?
|"Pay no attention to that|
man behind the curtain!"
The real Donald Trump is probably some wizened old man behind a curtain sitting on a pile of money just so he can reach the buttons on his control panel.
Donald's comb over hasn't gotten any thinner in the last ten years - that could be an indicator that it's a hair piece glued over a bunch of clockwork and wires.
|Getting under Sophia's skin.|
If all that isn't worrying enough. Check out the video below... does that head look familiar?
Philip K. Dick says he'll keep us all safe in his 'People Zoo' so there's nothing to be worried about at all.
