Some of you might say that computers do not have a soul but they would not be able to define what they mean by "soul" since the soul itself is a concept and a religious truth.

There is more and more literature, cinema, TV and art in general, which builds hypotheses of a world governed by machines. Some of you might see it as a distant and fantastic hypothesis, but there are countries and big corporations that are investing a lot of money to find possible exits from a situation that becomes more and more possible if not probable.

I will be short but you can really find detailed studies. If it is true, and it is true, that more and more often computers pass the Turing test (the test serves to establish if a machine is no longer distinguishable from a human being) we approach the moment in which machines are able to think and develop a conscience. Some of you might say that computers do not have a soul but they would not be able to define what they mean by "soul" since the soul itself is a concept and a religious truth. The question, however, is: "Would the world governed by machines worse as mostly literature and cinema tend to make us believe?" Would humans be treated as parasites to be eliminated? Obviously I do not have an answer. On the one hand I think that it is difficult to do worse and that perhaps a world governed by a conscious machine could be better than a world governed by people like Trump. On the other hand, however, I think: "If it is true that every human being develops his own consciousness that is influenced, at least in part, by the culture in which he was born, what would happen if we were governed by a computer that learns from itself and develops a conscience but starts from a core-software developed by human beings? "Honestly I would tend to trust a really intelligent machine but not the human beings that" prepare "it. But in the end, if I have to choose, and maybe I prefer a God with the voice of Scarlett Johansson (see movie "Her" or "Lucy") rather than a bleeding type on a cross. What do you think about it?
