If we survive the bomb, the internet, the collapse of the environment, declining democracy, population expansion and the next 50 years, we may not survive the rise of the robot! This series is a prediction of the creation of new beings on our planet that care little about us and other creatures like us...ie the animal world. The robot will be the ultimate being in the universe that can think a billion times faster than us, can move faster than a speeding bullet, can even fly over skyscrapers and, no, it will not be superman with idealistic and cultural motives. If you feel that you could hide from them, you would be mistaken as they will have ground seeking radar of several different kinds. Their hearing will be able to detect ants in their nests. Perhaps they will make other robots for their own purposes and avoid us...I doubt it? AI people it is time to stand up and be counted!
