“By the time Skynet became self-aware it had spread into millions of computer servers across the planet. Ordinary computers in office buildings, dorm rooms; everywhere. It was software; in cyberspace. There was no system core; it could not be shutdown. The attack began at 6:18 PM, just as he said it would. Judgment Day, the day the human race was almost destroyed by the weapons they'd built to protect themselves. I should have realized it was never our destiny to stop Judgment Day, it was merely to survive it, together. The Terminator knew; he tried to tell us, but I didn't want to hear it. Maybe the future has been written. I don't know; all I know is what the Terminator taught me; never stop fighting. And I never will. The battle has just begun.”

JOHN CONNOR (TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES)

Sometimes in life, we get extremely caught up in the magnitude of choice, the direction of life and the pull from everything which wants your attention. This is what we worry about in life, but while the rest of the world is crying out for them to look at me. The world is progressing at a sublime rate. A rate which is excelling beyond that of any other time in history.

Right now, there is a huge movement and drive into artificial intelligence, it truly is on the gusp of a breakthrough that is going to brake the mold of whats possible on this planet, how are we people going to react to something so large, even the prospect of jobs and security are under threat.

But the true case of artificial intelligence is that is to far evolved and it cant be stopped. Why it cant be stopped is because of the rate of necessity is to great. The human evolution is now on a scale where we are bringing robotics to control civilization. No other time in history has faced what we will see in our lifetime.

The truth though is that this terrifying scenario, the one which has being warned through out sci fi movie after sci fi movie, may not be out of the realms of the possibility.

Today’s guest is one of the leading researchers into artificial intelligence and has studied momentous amounts of research into: is consciousness capable of being accessed by a machine, the advancement of technology. Ladies and gentlemen, i would like to introduce you to David Wood.
