Some machine interfacing sounds good.

Reading this about how machines will reach the intelligence of human beings by 2029 makes me wonder. You see I think in some ways they are par with human intelligence now. Just watching our political leaders tells us that not many socialists have the smarts that some PDAs have now.

Anyway, I can't wait for some man machine interface to allow us to record conversations for later playback, visual and audio. Just think what that would do for our justice system alone. As well as helping us remember things like birthdays and appointments. Store books and things for us to read whilst we are waiting for something to happen. I don't see why I would want someone to argue with me. I'm looking for an aid. I'm sure we could do that now. Just need some way of interfacing and we can have it all.

So why are we waiting for nanobots which I actually see being given specialised tasks such as exploring our bodies and killing cancer cells, healing us from the inside and other such basic tasks. I don't want anything with too much intelligence that changes its tasks depending on what its programmers thought.

The KISS principle guys. Keep It Simple Stupid. Remember that guys.

Maybe this is a grim prediction for the future, but so is the one government socialist "utopia" we appear to be heading for.

Shortly after 2029, once the machines have become significantly more clever than us, they won't need us anymore, and we might go the way of our predecessors.

A new species will have evolved, natural libertarians one and all.

Thats why we want them specialists and not capable of thinking. Just look at the damage some of our simpler thinking machines (socialists) have done to the world.

Plus once I am lazing in bed being served peeled grapes while nanobots keep my six pack in trim I don't want to find they are taking me to court to get independence like in may sci-fi films. Screw them. Keep them dumb like socialists.
