When A.I. Escapes

A photo I took at Fort Pickens in Pensacola Florida, Edited.
Every technology either reaches escape velocity, or  dies.
If at some point, a new technology becomes viable, it explodes into the human experience like gangbusters.
It happened with automobiles. I saw that with the personal computer. We are seeing it now with artificially intelligent robotics.

Some questions arise. We weren't prepared for them when the automobile, TV, and PC arrived. Will we be prepared for the A.I. Robot?
Will Robots have rights.
Should Robots that replace human workers pay income tax?
Are Robots slaves?
What do we do with a dead Robot?
Once a Robot reaches general intelligence, can they vote?

Why did I capitalize "Robot"? Well... we capitalize God, don't we?
