There's a reason they are pushing robots in entertainment now and are increasingly appealing to a younger audience. In order for humans to overcome the uncanny valley, robots have to seem natural in our everyday lives. Adults have already passed the point where they can accept robots as natural, so who does that leave? If you're interested in robots and what this means for us, look into the "Terminator Scenario"

The uncanny valley is a hypothesis regarding the field of robotics. The theory holds that when robots and other facsimiles of humans look and act almost like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. The "valley" in question is a dip in a proposed graph of the positivity of human reaction as a function of a robot's lifelikeness.




Terminator Scenario


The Future





















From Wiki

Quote :
Transhumanism is an international intellectual and cultural movement supporting the use of science and technology to improve human mental and physical characteristics and capacities. The movement regards aspects of the human condition, such as disability, suffering, disease, aging, and involuntary death as unnecessary and undesirable. Although the first known use of the term dates from 1957, the contemporary meaning is a product of the 1980s when futurists in the United States began to organize what has since grown into the transhumanist movement. Transhumanist thinkers predict that human beings may eventually be able totransform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label "posthuman".[1] Transhumanism is therefore sometimes referred to as "posthumanism" or a form of transformational activism influenced by posthumanist ideals.[3]

Anyone with some knowledge of Manga and Anime, specifically "Ghost In The Shell", recognized that in Kanye's video "Stronger" he borrowed heavily from the opening sequence of "Ghost In The Shell" as well as "Akira". The theme of "Ghost In The Shell" is Artificial Intelligence becomes self-aware and wants to be free from its human programmers. The main character in the film is a law enforcement android, tasked with making sense of a series of murders who becomes conflicted once she realizes that the self-aware AI is more like herself than the humans it is killing. She then begins to question her existence and why she serves her human masters. So what is Kanye saying with his video? Is he becoming less human and more posthuman? Or is it simply art for art's sake?


Hmmm....

It's interesting when you look at old movies like "Terminator" because at the time........it seemed pretty implausable during that timeframe. The thought of having robotic flying machines in the air that were hunting for people just seemed "out there" for most. Look at present day and we have drones all over the skies and they have become the top "human hunters" in the wars these days. Now you here of drones that are so small that they can literally fly up to your windows or inside your home to spy on you.

It seems there was a movie not long ago that had these drones flying around and they would fly up to you, make you retina scan and then check the database on you. This type of stuff is ABSOLUTELY plausable in this world today!

This brings up another point for me which I've talked about for a while now........what do these controllers have without their technology? IF there were to be a massive solar flare that fried electricity for everyone, it would be just a much of a blessing as it would be a curse on humanity. You would have a virtual "restart" of civilization and, don't get me wrong, it would suck however out of that adversity would come ultimate freedom and the return to the natural order of things. Who knows, maybe this is what 2012 holds for humanity.
