Question by don’t dream it LIVE IT!: in the case of robotics; is science (robotics) improving or destroying human life?
do you think things could occur like they do in i, robot. are we as a society in danger of robots or machines running the world?
Answer by Joose
In I, Robot, VIKI was programmed in such a way that it could think. It could evolve in its intelligence independently of humanity. Logic was its driving factor; all it did was consider logic. The only thing VIKI would ever do was the most logical thing its programming would allow it to do.
So, suppose a robot like that really existed. It’s capable of thinking on its own. Limited to its programming, yes, but not necessarily to the intent of its programmer. It can think independently of us.
Because it is a computer, and because it is capable of evolution, it will eventually come to the most logical conclusion. The freethinking, independent robot will always be logical.
So, what you really need to be asking yourself is, is ruling over humanity the best, most logical conclusion?
If it is, then yes, I, Robot could, theoretically, happen. But if there is a logical justification for our freedom, then a freethinking robot wouldn’t eliminate our freedom.
