With all the different reactions to the idea of the coming conflict between robots and man, I have only one thing to say:
I hope that our children are prepared to defend us. Not only from machines but from ourselves.
The only way that will happen is if they are prepared to take control of knobs and dials that control our politics, society and culture.
This means that they must be prepared to tinker.
The only way that happens is if they have confidence that tinkering can have the outcome they predict.
We must give them the skills to know that they can be engineers.
That is all.
