Humans To Become Pets, Says Apple Co-Founder

June 8, 2011

As technology explodes, humans are  not going to be needed so much in the  future and will settle back into a life of  ease, Mr Wozniak told a business  congress on the Gold Coast on Friday.

“We’re already creating the superior beings, I think we lost the  battle to  the machines long ago,” he said.

“We’re going to become the  pets, the dogs of the house.”

He said all of a sudden, true artificial  intelligence will creep up on  mankind like an accident.

“Every time we  create new technology we’re creating stuff to do the work we  used to do and  we’re making ourselves less meaningful, less relevant.

“Why are we going  to need ourselves so much in the future? We’re just going  to have the easy  life,” he said.

Mr Wozniak said Singularity, where a machine seems like a  human being and  has feelings, can think and be motivated, seemed an impossible  dream to him  years ago.

When he started Apple, he said, he never thought  a computer would be  powerful enough to hold an entire song and today we can fit  50 movies on a  little disc in an iPhone.

“You don’t realise it’s happened  until it’s there and I think that awareness  of machines is getting very, very  close and we’re getting close to where a  machine will really understand you,” Mr  Wozniak said.

“My comment about the machines winning the war is partly a  joke, but we’ve  accidentally already put so much in place that we can’t get rid  of from our  lives.

“Once we have machines doing our high-level thinking,  there’s so little need  for ourselves and you can’t ever undo it – you can never  turn them off.”

The globalists and computers have a lot in common; always copying, imitating, updating the program, they have extraordinary knowledge – but they can never and will never be FREE HUMANITY.
