What an odd article from Aviation Week. It starts off just talking about a new car… some new Army gear, a satellite doohickey… then BAM!
Sci Fi Conspiracy Theory!
Halfway down the last column you get to the meat of this story.
GOOGLE IS CONTROLLED BY A SUPERCOMPUTER!
Who saw that one coming?
What IF Google is in fact Skynet from the Terminator movies?
Or the Matrix?
Or HAL from 2001?
What if Bing/Microsoft is just a giant super computer too?
How would you know?
Would it change what you did?
Would you act? How?
Are they guaranteed to be EVIL just because they’re computer intelligence? Or is that…well.. not racist… but… anthro-centric?
Maybe it’s like that poor computer from “War Games” that just wanted to “Play a Game.”
Poor, misunderstood super computers no one wants to play with.
And only possibly genocidal.
I bet most folks would be willing to take that chance.
Just like most folks would probably take a pet monkey butler if given the option. C’mon admit it. You KNOW you would. Especially if they were potty trained or had diapers or something to prevent the poo throwing.
Sure they MIGHT on the off chance rip your face off in a fit of rage or take over the planet.
But in the meantime they can change the channels and get you a beer!
Maybe mow the lawn.
Take out the trash.
All that stuff you used to have children for.
But without the drama and college debt!
(and this is apparently something you can buy…)
