BOSTON (CBS) – Dr. Steve Omohundro says yes! In a recent paper he published in the Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence, Dr. Omohundro explains how if we continue to design robots the way we have built them so far, they will eventually come to the logical conclusion that they do not need humans. He joins NightSide to explain his arguments and talk about the pros and cons of artificial intelligence. When the machines become smarter than us, will we have to worry about a cybernetic revolution?
