Firth's Tech: Can artificial intelligence kill us all? Most likely, yes.

March 12, 2018View for printing

Yes. In fact, there is already a movie out about how this will happen: the 1984 Terminator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The problem with the movie is that it includes time travel, which likely is not an option.

However, the rise of the machines called terminators is a definite possibility with the advances in artificial intelligence we're seeing. In the movie, a system call Skynet goes through enormously fast learning and becomes self-aware (at 2:14 a.m. on August 29th, 2013 in case you're wondering) and, since it is connected to the country's nuclear weapons system, it decides milliseconds later to kill off all the humans.
