    Netflix has a series
    'Better than Us.'
    On episode 4 and it is keeping my interest.

    Well, I saw it briefly. Not quite apropos but I was thinking that before we say 'Terminator' you might want to take a look at what a human can really do. This guy is something else - unfortunately the videos can be a bit painful to slog through.

    I will avoid the obvious doom and gloom robot overlord future part. I'm just curious, With Quantum computing making strides, Someday we will be able to create artificial intelligence that is indistinguishable from a human being.

    Whether it will be sentient and conscious is entirely another subject within the topic of AI, But truthfully we aren't that far away from complicated programs that are able to pass the Turing test. Turing test - Wikipedia some programs already have passed this test.

    When we have machines that think like humans and act like humans indistinguishably, will we be forced to treat them as other humans? I suppose this is almost a sociopolitical question. To make this easier to answer, Do you guys believe someday in a distant future we will be forced to Treat creations that were made in an assembly line, with the same regard we give human life?
