Androids

When do you think these will be smart and cheap enough to be mass produced?

Will they enslave humanity like in so many Sci-fi books/movies/games?

What will they be used for? Cleaning? Socializing? Sex?

Will they eventually replace human labor causing our economy to suffer?

Will they still exist when humans die out?


There are no clear way to learn it unlike html and css who are actually funny to learn and explore.

Re: Androids

Within our lifetimes.
If the people who make them are Genre Savvy, no chance.
EVERYTHING.
Maybe. Or just make a completely different type of economy.
Depends on how humanity dies off.

Re: Androids

I'm guessing the first functional ones will be available for the rich in the early 2030s, and for the middle class in another decade, give or take a few years.

They wouldn't enslave us if they became sentient and rose against us, since they'd be better workers in the first place. My guess is that they would keep us alive to be used as guinea pigs for scientific testing, or wipe out all of humanity.

First, I could see them doing mundane jobs such as housekeeping,  working in retail, mining,
manufacturing and culinary jobs. As their intelligence
increases, they could become the overseers of our world, running all forms of economics, political decisions, and technological research. Who knows, maybe the first robotic unions will lead to Skynet ;)

The white collared worker will be just fine and dandy,

but the world could be a dark place for the blue-collared. Yet again, maybe our technologies will face limitations against the creativity and innovation of a hard human worker with extremely dexterous hands.

If humans die out from something like an epidemic or drastic weather changes due to climate change, then I don't see why not, as long as the androids are autonomous. On the other hand, nuclear warfare is probably the most likely way to seal our fates, and the EMP blasts would cripple any electronics within the radius of a pulse. Maybe in the future, there'll be some way to protect these machines with ease, but a modern day perspective tells me otherwise.

Bulgaria already developed an Android. Just look at him:

Re: Androids

Murder would get so easy...want to have somebody dead? Just reprogram one of the Androids working for him. Hence wireless and everything, I think it might be possible. And, all the evidence you have to delete is on a damn Computer. I could think of nothing better!

And yes, they will work for us. And we will get decadent. Guess its for the best. I bet you will find more fat humans when they are established.

Electronic forensics is a thing, for one. Many very intelligent criminals and hackers are still arrested.

For another, I doubt it will be easy at all to reprogram an android. It's likely to be heavily encrypted, possibly with the keys only possessed by the corporations making these things. If an open-source standard is made, it will, no doubt, have heavy encryption as well, possibly biometric scanners. If it doesn't, well, the person who rooted his android and installed it is a retard.

Re: Androids

There's two things when thinking androids: 1) appearance; and 2) AI. There will probably be an extremely realistic looking, feeling, smelling, etc. robot in the next few decades. It will probably not be intelligent.

I watched an interesting documentary a while ago with some AI researchers in it. One guy said that any type of strong AI or at least something convincing will not be human. It will not be something that we design like in books and movies. It'll be more like Skynet with less destruction involved.

Just think of all the rich, lonely neckbeards who will never have to date a woman.

Until they become self aware and realize humanity can never be perfect like they are and proceed to kill us all.

On another note, a sex robot would be epic for everyone

No, I would rather not have sex turn into boring, like how prostitutes must feel.
