will robots become self aware like the movie terminator

Prof Hawking told the BBC he felt that full artificial intelligence, which is used in a basic form in his new system, “could spell the end of the human race”.

He said: “The primitive forms of artificial intelligence we already have have proved very useful. But I think the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” He added that the technology would eventually become self-aware and “supersede” humanity as it developed faster than biological evolution.

could this be inevitable and what will happen to the human spirit

Not a chance. After all we do not even have a so called Robot or AI machine that can go 3 City Blocks on its own. Assuming City Blocks have stairs, traffic, etc.. So do not confuse a Robot that is working in a factory and executing a Software Code to carry on a specific repetitive task with thinking.

Elon Musk, the guy from the Tesla electric cars is scared of what's coming and he even warns us for the potential of artificial intelligence, Google is also calling for "Kill-Switch" and if big companies like these two are getting nervous I think it might be a good idea to keep your eyes and ears wide open and look what they say and do about it...

Google has been hyping their Self driving Car, as has Musk, which so called Self driving Car of Google can only operate on Google Campus, much like a Train from 1950s on a designated Track. And the so called Self driving Tesla car is very much on self level of intelligence and self drive capability as Cruise control of 90s.

What is evident is, the more machines think, the less human do. The level of ignorance and superstition all over the Internet is staggering. This is really the danger.

This part of what you have written is true:
"The level of ignorance and superstition all over the Internet is staggering."
but this has to do entirely with the fact that US Media is a rightwing lying Machine and hence has created in too many American People "ignorance and superstition", leading to election of a psycho path such as Trump and Republican party in general, and War after War that USA is engaged in in particular. Which Wars our Human soldiers fight and not Robots.

Robots becoming " self aware " is not the issue.
Humans becoming self un-aware is the issue. To be exact if you let Machines think for you, then Machines will Win. OTOH, if you think for yourself and use Machines to empower you, then robots will be a highly useful tool that will many times increase your Power as a Human. But unfortunately, many Humans are too lazy in the mind, they do not think freely and Independently, and hence these Humans that allow Machines to think for them, are in danger of being replaced by Machines (aka Robots).

This is a great question! I have seen a few news programs suggesting this is very possible. We already have robots that are real looking and can me-mick humans and they want them to be self aware! This does not look good for us, the human race. So yes I think terminator could most definitely be a reality.

Load of bullocks!
As to the News Programs, are these the same News Programs that lied a mountain of lies and fear mongering to sell the Iraq War by scare mongering that Iraq had WMD? Which she of course did not. And that she had the 5th largest Military in the World? Which she of course did not. etc. fear mongering.

Well these are same News Programs that are now fear mongering about "terminator like Robots", "ISIS", ETC. fear mongering to control the Simple minds among us. Wake UP!

No, not in a 1000 Years. If not a Million Billion years.
After all, 1st our best Robots today have less intelligence than a Pegon. I mean Robots can do a pre programmed task very well, but they have ZERO ability to learn and think on their own.
Also, since Robots live off electricity, we can just plug them off and that is that.

You two haven't heard or you don't know about DARPA yet or you are just ignorant and don't want to know how far we already are with creating highly advanced robots which are the most sophisticated killing machines being developed right now... I don't say this to scare anyone and this isn't controversial, you can watch a few videos on YouTube if you don't believe me just search for DARPA or military humanoids and you'll see what I mean.

It is as if the world stood still until 1800 and then came under development. From the invention of the wheel was already done. Or, perhaps by the invention of the wheel has gone from start of the development. After 1800 the steam engine came to the car and the plane ot long ago we went to the moon. I want them to say that the world millions of years still tawny here. As against it quickly went ontiegelijk last centuries. What do you think about it.

Without the inventions many years ago (eg Stone Age, Iron Age, Greek Antiquity) we would still live in caves today.

Our inventions are only the result. It is much more difficult to invent a wheel than later a car.

What so many things that we humans have created are good for nature and without which actually nature would have self destructed herself just as she did via an Asteroid hitting Earth 60 Million Years ago and nearly wiping all life Off.
