All Signs Point to the Robot Uprising

Artificial Intelligence or Robot Uprising?

This week we have had a lot of news come out of the European Union but don’t worry we’re not going to talk about the Brexit today, our news story is about how in the EU they are discussing passing regulations that give Robots and AI’s people like rights, and while right now that seems a little ridiculous but considering how quickly things have progressed it may not be as ridiculous as it seems at first look. So today lets start out with talking about our favorite AI’s and Robots in Fandoms

Popular AI’s in Fandoms
Marvin from Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Star Trek: Data, Futurama, Star Trek: Moriarty, Jarvis, HAL, Cortana from Halo

Should Robots and AI’s have rights?

The Three Laws of Robotics

Study: People want self driving Cars to sacrifice the driver for the greater good, but want to buy cars that protect the driver

Which fandom will we most be like our future?
