Machines Have Already Replaced Us in Many Ways, 5 Scary Things You Didn’t Know

Machines have always been considered as potential threats for mankind, the exponential growth of technology during the last 4 decades have led many scientists and indeed Hollywood film makers to believe that it is just a matter of time before machines get intelligent enough to overthrow the human race.

The Terminator⦠Fact or still Fiction?

Weâve all been to the movies where they depict machines to be some hideous or highly dangerous villain all intent at nothing less than to take over the world and conquer all of humanity. When the original Terminator first came out in the early 1980s, people gasped at the possibilities towards which it hinted. While we can safely say that technology has not yet reached quite the pinnacle as hinted in the movie, we are getting really close. Any terminator style invasion is as yet unlikely, but as will become apparent in the article later on⦠We have given our machines some unique sense of being, they may not be able to think as we humans do, but they are none the less getting more and more intelligent every day.

Robots can be expert surgeons!?

The first legal use of robots to assist in surgery took place during the early 1970s, when robots were in their premature stages and only functioned on already determined programs. Today though, robots have become integral in nearly all aspects of medicine. Today, a robot can be programmed to effectively carry out some of the most delicate operations on the human body which could hardly be entrusted to any human doctor, the risk of human error is so high that only robots can be entrusted to carry out such operations.

Artificial Intelligence now making Music too:

Musicians have always incorporated computer technology in music making, computerized renditions of recordings and addition of multi-layered content and sounds has been around since the 80s. But never has the technology been so advanced that computers can actually determine and select certain pitch and arrangements of sound to work out a particular pattern on their own, with no human input. Such technology is now possible, though computers are not sufficiently intelligent enough to construct whole opera pieces, they can work out broken pieces of music that have a certain definitive melody, though the sound is crude as yet, but the potential is there.

In Warfare⦠Drones, Bombs:

The military has seen new usage of robots and highly intelligent machines in the form of drones. The US Army and Air Force operate thousands of these drones to carry out bombings in distant areas where it would be dangerous to send a human aircraft pilot. These drones can carry out lengthy missions on their own, and report back too, offering valuable information.

In Space Exploration:

Space exploration is perhaps where robots come most useful, they can be sent to far and distant planets where it would be impossible for humans to survive. NASA uses incredibly intelligent robots to gather and examine rock specimens from Mars and other planets in our solar system.

All this intelligence weâre giving to these machines may at some point prove to be our undoing.
