(Great Power War)Â According to the script of the iconic 1980s futuristic thriller â€œThe Terminator,â€ humans are nearly exterminated in the future after â€œCyberDyne Systemsâ€ computers â€œgot smartâ€ and saw Mankind, its creator, as its enemy.
Could such a scenario actually occur, though? More and more, scientists argue the answer is â€˜yes.â€™
The theory amongst todayâ€™s scientists isnâ€™t much different from the script of the original â€œTerminator,â€ and it revolves around the concept of artificial intelligence.
Using AI, or machine learning, systems that control nuclear weapons could someday â€˜get smart enoughâ€™ to see threats to their own existence.
