Judgement Day is Upon Us
Title is satirical and sarcastic, but we are getting ever closer and closer to self aware computers-

Break out the Eclipse Phase sourcebooks, people!

Self aware computers may only be a threat to those that underestimate them.

Well, if a computer can be self aware, then they can sure as hell be well aware of me; they'll either do my bidding or it's the scrap heap. Sofukem. Dodgy

Not only will they be self aware, but also self evolving, and most likely integrated into biological systems. We assume that would be humans .. maybe .. maybe not.
In 50 years, we will plug into the "network" and upload into out 1/2 biology, 1/2 robot selves, all the data and information into our databases, from the last 6 hours, along with all the strategies the "system" has worked out to deal with every new disease, and problem. As Kurzweil has pointed out, it's now parabolic.
