    Default Experts Warn of 'Terminator'-Style Military-Robot Rebellion

    Autonomous military robots that will fight future wars must be programmed to live by a strict warrior code, or the world risks untold atrocities at their steely hands.

    The stark warning — which includes discussion of a "Terminator"-style scenario in which robots turn on their human masters — is part of a hefty report funded by and prepared for the U.S. Navy's high-tech and secretive Office of Naval Research.

    The report, the first serious work of its kind on military robot ethics, envisages a fast-approaching era where robots are smart enough to make battlefield decisions that are at present the preserve of humans.

    Eventually, it notes, robots could come to display significant cognitive advantages over Homo sapiens soldiers.

    "There is a common misconception that robots will do only what we have programmed them to do," Patrick Lin, the chief compiler of the report, said. "Unfortunately, such a belief is sorely outdated, harking back to a time when ... programs could be written and understood by a single person."

    The reality, Dr. Lin said, was that modern programs included millions of lines of code and were written by teams of programmers, none of whom knew the entire program.

    Accordingly, no individual could accurately predict how the various portions of large programs would interact without extensive testing in the field — an option that may either be unavailable or deliberately sidestepped by the designers of fighting robots.

    I feel like I'm in an episode of 'LOST'.

    Seriously, this has got to be the EPITOME of life imitating art...

    Which came first?

    here's the answer to all our fears.

    It is not an understatement to say that if a person ate a bowl of alphabet soup, they would shit better lyrics. -lmr5150 on Up For Breakfast

    Give him the "secret devil sign", stick out your tongue and hiss like a demon while bellowing out THE DARKNESS WILL ENVELOPE THY SOUL AND FEAST OF THY FLESH, INFIDEL!!!!! Then gouge a pentagram in your forehead with a nail file. -LowLifeFlatHeadScum

    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.

    It truly did.

    However, its much lesser known yet vastly superior sequel was Frenzy, especially the sitdown cocktail table version.



    Good god, the hours and quarters wasted on these two games...and Tempest. And Joust.

    And Atari 2600 Activision Pitfall. I mean, really, how many hours can someone play some dude jumping over poorly rendered crocs and scorpions, swingin' on vines, 2D screen to screen monotony?

    Motherfucking sumbitch, too goddamned many.

    Maybe the synthetic life will have mechanical limbs like in Army of Darkness.
