Week 8 Robots

This week sees the opening of the film adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s classic “I, Robot” starring Will Smith. (Which I am really looking forward to seeying.)

1) Who or what is your favorite movie robot?
Well, movie robots are sometimes not the best characters, but the robots on the movie Alien have always played some good roles, so those would be my favorites.

2) Will we ever see the day where walking, talking robots truly become a part of every day life?
I am sure of it. I think in about 20 years they will be all over. Think about it, computers are already part of our lifes. Almost one on every home.

3) Should a robot ever be programmed to kill a human?
I think no, I think that in our world though, they will be programmed just for that, because eventually war will be fought by machines, lets just hope that AI never gets to the point that turns on us.

BONUS) If you had a personal robot, what would you call it? What would you like it to do for you?
I already have one… just look around on my page :) he is dancing the day away.
If I had one IRL, it will probably do chores, all of the except for cooking, I love cooking.

DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! (if you don’t put your name and blogsite in the comments)

  1. I’d leave a big long comment today since I have been such a slacker, but I’m sooo tired that I can’t see clearly. =)

    Great answers. Thanks so much for playing.

  2. Wasn’t that Bicentennial Man?

  3. Yea it was, but I did not think the movie was very good… I am sure the book was way better.

  4. I never could watch it…as much as I love Robin, the little girl from the Pepsi commericals turned my stomach. I may have to read the book though.

  5. I put Robin’s Bicentennial Man as my favorite movie robot :)
