Will Robots Rule World?

Will humans someday live on the moon?  Will robots ever rule the Earth?  In my opinion these two questions are similar, because it is a desire controlled by humans.  500 years ago, if you asked whether or not humans would ever step foot on the moon, the answer would have been a quick NO.  But how exactly did we get onto the moon?  People wanted to, so they took action.  Where there’s a will there’s a way, as the saying goes.  Will the robots ever rule the Earth?  They will, if humans want them to.

        If we allow or want them to, robots will soon be serving dinner, making human and robot friends, building factories, doing IT jobs, and even running for president.  Perhaps they will make the Earth a better place by clearing pollution or fighting crime.   With our growing technology, robots will eventually be capable of doing almost everything humans can do except for one – think.  But when the medical industry is developed to a certain level, transplanting a brain to a robot could be possible too.  They will then have their own opinions, feelings, and creativity. And then they will make decision on their own, rather than being a machine that just follows our instructions.

        What if we don’t want this happen? Without a will, though, humans will still have the technology to create robots this way.  But instead, they would be made to serve us.

I think robots will rule the world. We’ve already destroyed too much of the planet Earth.  If we hand it into the hands of robots, they will take one of the two paths: Let us stay here and enjoy a better lifestyle, or bring humans to another planet before the Earth dies.  But do we really want robots to totally control us humans? That’s a question we might not be willing to answer “yes” to right now.

The AI Takeover will not happen. The two biggest reasons are the environment, and the advancement of our technology. Today, climate change and global warming are so bad in the poorest and least populated places that, if anyone saw it, they would want change immediately. If this continues to happen, and the government doesn’t actually start doing something, the ecosystem will collapse, and we will die out before we can make any more amazing discoveries. Our technology may seem really advanced with virtual reality and auto-pilot cars coming along, but really, is it possible to create a machine that can think and react on its own, without the need to teach it? The complexity of such a creation will probably be something that the human never come up with or too smart to not come up with.

Hi there! My name is Raymond Qiu. I’m 11 years old. My favorite sports are swimming, skiing, and volleyball. I also enjoy playing Chess and Lego with my friends. On the breaks, I love to travel to cool destinations to take pictures and enjoy the delicious food. When I’m tired of homework, I like to create random pieces on the piano and be my own audience. I admire those who can speak many different languages, and I wish I could learn more too. This great skill can help me communicate and make friends when I travel, and also support me become a businessman with a global business in the future. Let’s start from VoiceK.

Hello. My name is Michelle. I am currently in grade four. I go to Silver Stream Public School. I enjoy reading comics and writing short stories from the top of my brain. I have an identical twin sister named Amelie. I like doodling, skiing, making myself dizzy, and doing handstands under the water. I like experimenting with computers, but I get into trouble. The only successful pets I have now are two nine-year-old fish without names. If you were to put me into one of the categories, Girl or Tomboy, I have one half here, and one half there. I will do almost ANYTHING possible to continue sleeping in most cases. That is all you need to know about me.
