Robot slaves may be the foot soldiers in John McCain’s thousand-year surge, if expert predictions prove true. Scientists in the field of artificial intelligence see a time in the not-so-distant future when robots will be able to kill on command without any human intervention. This intriguing development could leave the United States to wage robot wars across the planet with other countries’ robots, making war into a sort of healthy and ultimately deathless exercise, except for the robot slaves who will perish horribly in flames. Scientific proof after the jump.
- University of Sheffield professor Noel Sharkey says that autonomous robots “are more cost-effective and give a risk-free war.”
- Nations already enjoying the services of military/law enforcement robots include South Korea, Israel, China, India, Russia, and Britain.
- Unfortunately, terrorists could use robots as suicide bombers. “I don’t know why that has not happened already,” says Sharkey.
The only person alive to see this nightmare scenario will be John McCain himself, who will live to the age of 1 million before his circuit board craps out.
