    Dave I like the idea of machines working on our behalf — technology focused on solving our daily problems, from the big to the small, an inspirational and a goal worth persuing.

    Actually it would be nice to own shares in a few robots whose productivity I could earn something on, hey why not? Maybe I could profit share while it produces whatever it’s meant to create.

    Slave is probably the wrong word for the term at least by dictionary definition it might be but I get the gist of how you are using it, I understand the concept.

    AI in a way is that final goal or vision that technologists, futurists, novelists and filmmakers have sort of peered towards, some visions are rather dystopian while others not but from an academic point of view I think the goal is one of serving mankind in the best sense of the word.

    I believe AI will proliferate more quickly and easily into industrial marketplaces, wether these be physical AI devices or some sort of high end AI economic tool agent. I mean there are a lot of markets that AI will eventually embed itself into.

    I think that AI is complex enough that it will not happen overnight, as though it just landed, rather instead it will be a gradual curve that will slowly immerse itself first there and then there and here and so on.

    AI is slowly taking shape, I wish we could just solve problems of war, poverty, violence, haves and have nots as we converge to an AI centric place. If we don’t fix these problems first, AI is probably not going to be suited to those sorts of tasks, I think anyone who believes AI can solve those things is wishfully thinking.

    Let’s hope for the best, for all of us.
