Im seriously disappointed with the ending of mass effect 3.
For those that don't know it the whole plot is based on a mystery, and at the end you find the mystery is a logical fallacy ruining the entire plot start to finish.
There's this idea that AI always destroys its creators, seriously can't sci-fi writers think of anything else that AI might be able to do?
for a start, there's absolutely no motive for AI to wipe out a human race so why make one every single time its used in a story,
second; if we can live with the french or a different intelligent species then we are already sharing our existence with other intelligent beings relativity okay,
lastly; Every single plot where AI tries to destroy humans the plot is always
| 'a misguided attempt to save us by doing something for us against our will that they have logically come to the conclusion that they should do it for us cos we don't have the balls to do it to ourselves' |
that's way too a specific thing to use in like 70% of all science fiction with AI in it, only deus ex managed to be original-ish in that respect.
maybe if you plugged your AI in to nuclear missile silo network they might blow us all up, but no ones is going to plug an AI into the nuclear missile system for the same reason they wont stick one of my c++ programs in.
I seriously think AI will be fine, if you remember to include some of what makes us not psychos in then what could possibly go wrong? your fembot quits its job and goes off into the world wasting your hard earned cash, thats the worst that could happen.
I also neglected to mention earlier that I know how the human brain works unlike everyone else and that when I know computers well enough I will make the first computer that can actually think like a person and a computer, true story now word of a lie because i am in actual fact am one myself.
EDIT: self replicating robots and human computer merging could have incredibly distopian like effects on humanity however.
