Change of Plans: Kill All Humans

by Socrates on January 16, 2011

The singularity is often equated with a Terminator or Matrix type of a TechnoCalyps based on the presumption that once artificial intelligence becomes sentient then supposedly the most likely action they will undertake is to exterminate us.

The following cartoon has been circulating for a while around the general singularity and transhumanist community, but because it is so funny, I thought I’d post it anyway. Even if you may have seen it before you may still find it funny again… I know I laugh every time I read it, and I’ve read it a dozen times by now ;-)

Hat tip to Singularity 2045 for finding the cartoon first.

    The only way to win is not to play, evidently?

    I am not sure I get what you mean Tyler?! Do you mean to suggest that we ought to stop developing any new technology?

    Oh no no, I was just playing around. All glory to the hypnotoad, etc. etc.
