My vote is No. Human's, in fact all mammals and life on earth is impossibly overcomplex and energy hungry for what they contribute. In a thousand years machines are gonna look back on 2012 in awe. A 1000 years seems like a long time and it is with the pace of current technological progress, but remember that it took anatomically modern humans 160,000 years to get it together to spit paint a Bison on a cave wall after they already looked like us. What does that mean? I wanna hear your opinion. The foundations of human cognition are already known, Piaget taught us that, and the technology exists to press this operationalism into electronics, so it it just a matter of time. And not alot, I am working with a team trying to push this forward now. Once it happens, it won't be long before humans define the term "superflous". What's gonna happen to us, then? I think we will be cared for by our robotic superiors just like we take care of grandma, but I don't think that what the future holds is some kind of Star Trek fantasy. What's your vote?
