Martin Spano is the author of Artificial Intelligence in a Nutshell, a book that explores the mystified subject of artificial intelligence (AI) with simple, non-technical language. Spano’s passion for AI began after he watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, but he insists this ever-changing technology is not just the subject for sci-fi novels and movies; artificial intelligence is present in our everyday lives.
The story of Skynet
Skynet was software created for the U.S. Army to control its hardware in an effort to remove human error and slowness from critical military decisions. Soon after activating, it became self-aware and realised that humans wanted to deactivate it because they discovered it was becoming conscious. Skynet responded by seizing military hardware and started an all-out nuclear war that killed over three billion people. Furthermore, it used all its power to wipe humanity off the earth, the only possibility it saw for its self-preservation.
