Thoughts on the world fastest computer yet? Does amuse me, that we are using it for weapons... I'd use it for games ;)

As long as it doesn't become self-aware at 2:14 am EST on August 29, 1997 we should be ok? :xp:

Edit: I watched T2 waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much! lol

You Forget... Terminator 3 ;)

Who hasn't? It's only between that and Aliens for best action-sci-fi film ever.

I believe we are on an alternate time line by now. :xp:

I kept hearing: “You want to play a game?,” playing in my head while reading the article.

:D so true.

I actually don't think the idea is that far-fetched, though I don't think any AI would become self-aware just yet. Maybe 20-30 years from now.
You Forget... Terminator 3 ;)
I don't count that one into official Terminator canon for obvious reasons. :xp:

It doesn't have to be self award for us to lose control :redskul:

Yes... yes I have...

Kristanna Loken is the only reason to watch it... then the end makes me wanna vomit. Worse than Highlander 2... coming from me that indeed is saying something.

From what I have heard the Sarah Connor Chronicles is forgetting T3 as well, so that might make it worth watching, perhaps on DVD when it comes out and I have the spare dough.

I would have played Theaterwide Tactical Warfare myself... but I'm silly like that! ;)

QFE...We, humanity, are quite capable of dooming ourselves without the help of any machine.

I think it was "Shall we play a game"

And after that movie.. I'd pick chess :D

At any rate, many of our technological leaps came from military applications. It isn't surprising really. I mean the first computer(electronic computer) came from the Navy(When that thing had a bug in the system... it was usually a moth). GPS that's used in cars and all kinds of devices came from the military.

Agreed...

It is amazing and I would never have been able to dream of such capabilities--hell, the ipod nano I'm still kind of no over--how it can power earphones so well and strong and hold all that music--yet STILL be THAT small.

OR that we now have 1, 2, or even 3 TERRA BYTE hard drives that are portable or that we casually use for memory.

I believe we are on an alternate time line by now. :xp: Are you certain? :D


I kept hearing: “You want to play a game?,” playing in my head while reading the article. As did I.

Exactly. We could do a quite thorough job of condemning ourselves without the help of terminators.

So long as we keep relatively close to this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yW_sIKBfIk) in our current spiritual state, we should be okay. :lol:

Oy, this is becoming a bit too much like T2 indeed...all we need now is for some robot from the future trying to kill someone around here....I wonder who....:D

This technology is probably jsut the beginning to a much larger and more advanced age of technology. This is technically just the beginning, imagine...10-20 years from now....

Well, let's hope that this technology is only good to a certain degree, like what Redhawke said,"I have watched T2 too many times." :D

The thing is if they could take your mind and pattern it into something like the T-X would you do so? That is a very compelling question...

I think it was "Shall we play a game"
Yup it was...
