I do enjoy gritty sci-fi and AI. I love the trailer for this movie.
It seems like the real-world is starting to look more and more like this. Here’s a Boston Dynamics Video:
I have to admit, even as a software developer, that there are some things that worry me about the advances in artificial intelligence. The Terminator movies provide an example of machines becoming intelligent and turning on humans, but a more important danger is the fact that machines obey their master. With computer viruses and coups, there’s the danger of shutting down an entire army or someone taking control of a mechanized army. At least with humans, there was a person who would decide whether or not to open-fire on civilians. Soldiers could decide for themselves whether or not to support a coup.
On a related note, I’ve been working on the AI of Empires of Steel lately.
