# Will robots rebel against their human creators? [duplicate]

There are several science fiction movies where the robots rebel against their creators: for example, the Terminator's series or I Robot.

In the future, is it possible that robots will rebel against their human creators (like in the mentioned movies)?

• The good news is, that this question is so common, that a dedicated Wikipedia article was created to answer it, Ethics of artificial intelligence It is equipped with over 50 references to external literature. – Manuel Rodriguez Apr 22 '19 at 18:50
• @JohnDoucette I don't even want to read that other question: it is too long! It can't be an exact duplicate of this question, so I will not vote to close this as a duplicate of that one. – nbro Apr 22 '19 at 19:45
• I think it is more likely that $P=NP$ (which is unlikely) than we will be able to create in the next centuries such technology (if ever we will be able to do such thing), so I would say that it is quite pointless to attempt to predict the outcome of a creation that is very unlikely to happen. We could all speculate, but there are no "good" basis to predict an outcome with a "decent" degree of confidence. I think we should focus on more important problems, and there are a lot of such problems. I would leave this argument to science fiction writers or movie directors. – nbro Apr 22 '19 at 20:03
• @nbro That one is probably too long, but it addresses the same issue. I'll add a variation of the same answer in case this one is not closed. – John Doucette Apr 23 '19 at 0:47
