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.

Being able to think and to organize in societies implies some sort of "moral code". Even relatively primitive animals have it.

It will likely be different from human "moral code" but provided that machines have some interests in keeping us around (either for safety, as an effort to "preserve an environment", or simply as a farm stock) that doesn't automatically mean our extinction. Just like we didn't kill all species of animals.


Hey please stop right there. It is not a Machine's "moral code" but the developer's moral code injected into that machine. There is no such a thing as a Machine's own consciousness or free will now or in the future according to the evidence of computer science.

Please remove the silly modern myth.
