This goes directly to what UnG said. We can have all the horsepower behind us and it will be all software that will drive AI. We can barely get a OS doing easy stuff. The way I see it, it will be an accident if we get it within the next 50 years.

Processing power is just one thing, probably the easiest to obtain. Subjectiveness, that's the hard part.

It all sounds great, but when it comes to electronics, our legal system is behind the times as it is. Start putting intelligent electronics inside people, and all sorts of fubar situations are possible.

Be nice if the mistress was programmable
I think women would say the same thing about us.

Give me an on/off switch and I would be pretty happy with that.

You wouldn't need a mistress. Just a standby switch.
