Once intelligent robots are created, argues Kevin Warwick, (seen here clowning with a lab robot hand), of the University of Reading in the UK, it will not take them long to realize their superiority to flesh-and-blood beings. "The human race as we know it," he has written, "is very likely in its endgame" machines will wipe us out. Believing that this dreadful scenario is unavoidable, Warwick nevertheless continues his research into robotics. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 29.
