The Moral Machine

The Matrix, setting its philosophical sense aside, is a dark and grim manifestation of – as of this time – the future. The science fiction of its concept has an eerie plausibility, if not possibility to it. When machines become too “smart” and self sustaining and in some twisted ripple of events, begin to “view” humans and their intelligence as a threat to its existence.

The Terminator is another movie with a similar concept. Are the messages from these films merely a figment of science fiction? In this day and age, yes – but technological advances and upgrades is faster than the evolution of the human brain.
Are we smart enough to not let machines "think" over our intelligence, to not "see" us as viruses?
