How far in the furture do you think it will be before Robots have artificial intelligence? They will be able to clean your house, wait on you and answer your questions.How will you feel about purchasing a robot that can help run your home? Would you buy one right away or wait untill they had been on the market for awhile? Or would you say no and never buy one at all?

Soon, all to soon. The lazy person in me loves the idea of having robots around to do so many things i just don't want to do. The utopian in me sees a world where we no longer have to rely on people to do the unpleasent tasks and we can become more spiritual or philisophical. However the sci-fi lover in me has a certain amount of fear toward the whole idea of artificial life. I wouldn't by one right away or maybe not ever. I would consider borowing one though.

Sad to say it certainly won't be in our lifetimes my friend! Maybe in the next millennium, that's if our good Earth is still here! But the way technology is progressing it is definitely a case of when and not if for sure. I am not sure I would want a robot in my home to be honest, what if it went wrong, what if it turned on you? I guess I have been watching too many Terminator films! But if they had a mind of their own they could actually continue to wipe out the human race, at the moment computers are replacing jobs, so it stands to reason doesn't it that one day computers or robots will take over the human race as we know it, but relax as I said it won't be in our lifetime or the next few either!
