The fictional Terminator franchise seemingly inched one step closer to becoming a reality recently when the Russian press revealed behind-the-scenes footage of their new military robot that can shoot guns and make decisions. They also insist it’s not a “Terminator”.
In the years to come, some fans have wondered; Will James Cameron be remembered as a prolific writer and director of movies dealing with science fiction, or will he be remembered as a “Nostradamus” of the technological world, correctly predicting a future clash between artificial intelligent machines and humanity? Well after the results to a recent poll was announced, it appears the majority of Great Britain feel it will be the latter.
“I’m not machine. I’m not man. I’m more.” Every Terminator fan recognizes that iconic line from “Terminator Genisys” where a “changed” John Connor reveals his new improved self to the horror of Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor. Well the genius investor, engineer, businessman and inventor Elon Musk (who happens to be the 80th most wealthiest person in the world) says we better embrace being “more”. This is because he believes in the future, humans becoming cyborgs might be the only thing that saves humanity. And he has a plan.
