Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is intelligence exhibited by machines, rather than humans or other animals (natural intelligence, NI). In computer science, the field of AI research defines itself as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".

Google's AI machine has sass

Human: I really like our discussion on morality and ethics… Machine: And how I’m not in the mood for a philosophical debate. Human: What do you like to talk about? Machine: Nothing. This machine was built using a database of movie scripts and was asked over and over to define morality, leaving the AI rather annoyed. That's probably how I would've responded to questions about ambiguous philosophy and definitions. On the other hand, the machine is based on set text/scripts and not memories/life experiences. It merely parrots words that it knows without any understanding, which according to historical experience and fictional works, isn't a very good thing.

AI might mean the extinction of humankind

Interesting article that basically says that the movie, Terminator, will come true, and that Skynet will kill us all if AI becomes reality :-/
