I can't wait until cars are auto piloted on legal state maintained highways. No more DUI's.

The first piloted cars will cost a lot tho. Will take few years for the price to drop. They can probably use sonar to gather information about surroundings, analyze it and process in matter of a second for this to work. Like bats do. Speed of sound is faster than speed of a car, so that should work.

Read Robopocalypse by Daniel Wilson and you won't be so keen on self-piloted cars. The end times are beginning...

I don't think that will ever happen. Almost all software have a single purpose. I doubt computers will ever have consciousness.

Sonar? Sound?

ARSEN, they may not have a lot of electricity in the Ukraine or Russia or Georgia or wherever you're from, but there is this sort of amplified EM called a "laser"...

When you consider the amount of wireless networks, how easy basic encryption would be to break for a AI level computer, and the fact more and more things are connected to the "net" it's not that much of a stretch.

Sci-Fi nerd knowledge tells me the issue is the AI would basically become a virus, infecting non sentient electronics and giving them some level of awareness, all with the same goal of working for the "Queen" AI.
