  1. As a typical small town USA citizen all my life, I can say that my view isn’t necessarily all that different from the views in Japan. I for one welcome our future robot over lords with big happy hearts and souls. 😉 On a more serious note though, I think the view of future mankind annihilation by self controlled robotic armies is greatly exaggerated but makes for a very fun film/book universe. I even own a large terminator action figure I keep on my book shelf at work. I do believe that long before any ‘war’ could take place, we would build enough safeguards into any AI to prevent such outcomes and that the future of robotics holds a very happy place for all of humankind. Of course, some top scientists such as Hugo de Garis believe an Artilect War is imminent within the next 100 years.
