Hardware, Embedded Systems Artificial intelligence is still a long way from delivering the human intelligence in robot form that has long been common in science fiction.

Just like we didn't kill all species of animals.

Yeah, about that... we're already most likely behind the ongoing extinction event, which will be one of most rapid ones in geological record - biologists estimating extinction rates at least hundreds times higher than background level, large part of all species gone by the end of this century.

(and what would be really "funny"... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medea_hypothesis )

some interests in keeping us around (either for safety, as an effort to "preserve an environment", or simply as a farm stock)

So, unless we're tasty ;) ...or cute & cuddly - but I somehow doubt AI will share our values here (after all, they seem to approximate... a typical juvenile primate; it's possibly a vestigial form of our biologically determined parenting instincts)
