Personally the evolution of AI is a huge thing. We should be really cautious. In the future we should be able to use the AI as much as we need and think it is helpful. We should have measure. Jobs should be done by humans cause working is a part of life. We shall not exclude working and assign robots to do them. AI is supposed to make our lives easier, better and not to threat them.

I agree with the opinion that robots will be good for our future life. All innovation technologies had discussion when they arrived but at the end the world is better everyday. For example, we live now 84 years old and it was impossible some years before, it is consecuence of innovation in medicine.

Nowadays, their skills of Robots have been evolved sharply.As a result, the advantages are obvious. The rise and more efficient in factories where humans will get tired after doing the same thing repetitively.
Besides, Robots can serve food or products, to carry material from one place to another.
On the other hand, If Robots do several jobs,the ratio of unemployment will increase quickly.
It must be said that society should have the control in technology.
In my opinion that a robot could surpass the Human Intelligence is shocking.

I am totally agree with the first two opinions. From my point of view, both of them are related to. In both opinions, they coincide with the point if machines have more power or intelligence than humans, we can be destroyed.
I think that depending on the use that we make of them, they can turn into friends or foes. In some fields,like medicine, they are very essential for the progression of diseases, treatments, etc. However, in other aspects, machines can be superior to humans.
The consequence of that is, for example, the lost of employment because robots are sometimes quicker than us.
It is important to clarify that if this is possible, it is partly up to us.

Honestly, every person seems to have a point. Like what A said, we might be in control of technology over those years, or not, considering how lazy human beings are. And according to B's theory, the robot population might overgrow human's. But that is very unlikely to happen, because the man who must have created it surely must know the way to destroy it. Unless he has amnesia, of course.
And thinking about C, it's just what the truth is. We are so blind as bats that we can't see the disadvantages just yet. But I hated the way she put it, though it talked some logic. And coming to D, well, I can say he's watching a lot of movies. But what he says is true, robots can be savage and damage the world.
So my opinion is that we won't last for long. So let's make the best of now. ✌ is sure to take over!!!!;))))

Unfortunately, I'm afraid to say that the most realistc scenario is that one depicted by Expert D. That is what I think after having seen that the best inventions, technologies and inprovements developed in the past have been mainly intended to cause damage, demolition and annihilation. Like it or not, we live in a selfish world where every nation want to be the mightest one. In the not too distant futere, fresh water will be an scarce resource that wil trigger wars. I am totally sure those wars will be waged by programmed robots.

I think most people would agree that robots can increase unemployment. For example, many factory workers have lost their job because now it is done by a robot. That's why I agree with to the text B.

It's a well-known fact that robots and technology have improved our lifestyle, but we should consider the possible consequences that can occur in the future. What's more important: the technological progress or employments? Personally, I think that robots are friends, until we make them our enemies.

According to B's point that robots take human jobs and that can cause jobless in the future ( That's could be possible I think).
Perhaps,in the future robots will be as human's pets,and can make men be more antisocial and break their considerations to one-another.
Asking me whether I see robots as friends or foes that rang a bit strange,let's just say they're like furniture.
