no our own conciusness is what really scares me
Interesting question and David Lagercrantz asked it in The Girl in the Spider's Web. What happens when computers become so intelligent that they begin to out-think people? Will they begin to make their own decisions about what is best for us? Or, for that matter, what is best for them?
I won't spoil the story by telling you what happened but, with a little help from Lizbeth Salander (the girl with the dragon tattoo) it was resolved.
For the time being...
Perhaps to some extent. However, If we could program a computer that learns and makes decisions independently, I sure hope we would think to put an off switch on it.
One thing robots or computers can't do is have a conscience. While they can evalulate data and give the best probablitiles for outcomes in certain scenarios, Unless we program them to do a function they will not do something they are not programmed to do. They do not update themselves to make decisions.
Skynet and the cylons are coming for us.
