Are you not concerned the robot will try to kill you and take over the world?

I’m not concerned about that because that would require true artificial intelligence, ie “The Singularity”. The singularity does not currently exist and may never exist. Machines gaining “consciousness” would be a truly spectacular feat of programming that would require a deep understanding of how the human mind works, which nobody currently has or else we would have The Singularity by now – and we don’t have it. I did attempt to figure out how to make a machine that could learn and reprogram itself, however, my delvings and ponderings into this subject matter kept hitting dead ends and kept leading to profound questions for which I could not surmise answers.
