Developing A.I. Might Be Less Unethical Than Not [Video]

Every single we aren't actively trying to make the Matrix happen is apparently a day wasted.

Robots are only getting more and more intelligent, and eventually they will replace us. Every single story in popular science fiction confirms this viewpoint, so naturally whenever someone invents a new piece of technology that begins to closely resemble artificial intelligence, some nerd shouts “No don’t do that THE CYLONS” or something to that extent. But what if creating better robots is actually the most ethical thing we can do as a society? That’s the question that the most recent episode of PBS Ideal Channel puts forth to viewers. I’m not sure if I agree, but I could basically listen to host Mike Rugnetta wax philosophical to accompanying pop culture GIFs for days on end regardless.
