Can we build a robot that has a brain of a human being?
ANSWER by:Ian Lang, Qualified Electronic Engineer BTEC National 3.
Now look, I have, in the past, met human beings who:
had to ask how to turn on a laptop computer
failed to cook a pie, because they couldnt work out how to light the gas on an electric oven
put a 13A fused plug onto a 30A cooker and then complained that it was tripping the breakers.
seriously believed that leaving Europe meant we’d move the country into the middle of the Atlantic
asked what I was listening to on my MP3 player and when came the answer “Beethoven” replied “what, that film with the dog?”
have to wear a digital watch because an analogue one is too confusing
tried to use a computer mouse upside down and complained it’s not working
have not plugged a printer into the mains “because it’s supposed to be wireless”
have bitten into a bar of fancy soap in the belief that it was white chocolate
and have phoned their mothers to ask how to make a jam sandwich.
Really? You want robots to be like that?

Unless mankind redesigns itself by changing our DNA through altering our genetic makeup, computer-generated robots will take over our world.
Wouldn't it be a strange twist of fate if we discovered that we were the original A.I.
