    Hysterically Funny!

    Next year electronic computers turn 70. So far they have been improving von Neumann machines by making them smaller, faster and with greater bandwidth. Maybe AI will be developed in the next 1,000 years but I am not expecting it in the next 50. But Simulated Intelligence will get very useful, like self-driving cars.

    But if we get AI will it give a **** about us?
