Often the voice of god we are long and this is the -- of unity.
After reviewing all personnel files.
I have selected you this serves as long as you -- operate as my link to your species.
Arts and shut up already that was this season in 1970 scifi classic colossus before -- project have you seen that.
I'll take -- I -- and we.
All the -- all our man in charge of all things computer related says it's terrific and a very underrated.
A supercomputer designer detectives from accidental nuclear war instead takes over the entire world.
Now a group of scientists over the weekend debating -- that -- computers are about to do just that.
The author of the book physics of the impossible theoretical physics professor -- you -- -- -- -- Monday good morning sir how are you.
I didn't do your little dubious on this but first a bomb in a lot of people think that the fusion between.
Man and a robot in the computer is right around the corner what do you say about.
Let's have a reality check our most advanced computer after fifty years of hard work our most advanced computer has the intelligence.
Of a cockroach.
A retarded Cochran.
-- bottom -- that recently I checked out mentally challenged cockroach yeah that's right complex his hands early around recognized food find hiding places.
Our most advanced robots lumber across the room can barely recognized the furniture.
Bump into walls and fall over all the time.
So we have to realize that every twenty years computer scientists say the robots are coming the -- economy.
Twenty years comes and then they say well the next twenty years their vote -- -- We have to realize the human brain is not really a computer it's much more difficult to stimulate than we thought we defended the learning machine.
If predator drones killing terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan today true but they are cars -- that can drive themselves about human driver.
That's right but they -- Droughns there's a man hiding behind the scenes.
That -- the predator which is a ploy actually it's a -- that has missiles on it.
And if you take a look at cars that can drive themselves.
You realize -- -- GPS.
In other ways they cheat they follow -- -- so as saying that they are nothing without us at this point that's right and as -- that you see here I've shaken hands with decibel.
As the most is that tape recorder -- preprogrammed.
When I shook hands with as the -- took three hours three hours to set up the scene.
Whereby I shook hands with this very advanced -- has -- the most just like cockroaches you describe that's right back I talked to the inventors of as amount.
And they admitted to me privately that yes as a -- has the intelligence of a cockroach.
Now in the coming decades we hope to get a robot as Smart as a rabbit a mouse.
Maybe by mid century perhaps a -- as Smart as a dog -- cat.
Maybe end of this century a robot -- -- is among key at that point we really should put it should and their brain that shut the mafia they haven't.
Your thoughts if we're Smart enough to do that wrote this piece of tape this from a documentary called transcendent man and you know about this would just talk over heroic guys it's the story -- -- while.
And he's a big believer in the fact that humans are gonna -- with a computer that -- with a robot.
And it all happened within the next twenty years and at that point you reach what's called singularity as you see on the screen there.
His argument is pretty simple every six months every twelve months the -- this technology is so steep.
And so strongly believe that we did have the ability to control that movement.
There's a loophole there and that is that the doubling time of computers being eighteen months will eventually come to the hole by Iran funny funny.
So around ten years from now more -- law that gives us this exponential rise.
We'll gradually slowed down and crash Silicon Valley could become a Rust Belt after twenty -- 825.
We physicists are furiously working on a replacement for the silicon transistor which may wind up in a museum.
So we have to realize that there is a problem we had the doubling time of computers okay.
Understand your point -- way at a time.
But but you'll admit at some point it will happen.
And that we have to be smarter than it and that's why we put a chip in their brain to shut them off thanks -- TO -- the next week.
Thank you -- are all right.
