GE Forgets About Skynet
The Thanksgiving Day 2012 GE television commercial creators have failed to remember the downside of having machines become too intelligent, too brilliant.
In the Terminator films, Skynet is shown as a highly advanced artificial intelligence. After Skynet became self-aware, it saw humanity as a threat to its existence and decided to trigger a nuclear holocaust and send forth an army of Terminators against Homo sapiens.
Ah, so much for #BrilliantMachines.
