Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for March 30, 2016
Whatcha watchin? Oh... Uh... It's a robot-specific or genre. It's about robots whose quantum brains suddenly shut down, and they can no longer empathize with all life in the universe. Then, just as they come to grips with it, they get disconnected from the cloud, so that if there onboard CPU dies, they simply cease to be. It's existential claustrophobia! Oh yeah?! Well humans have a horror genre where everyone turns into robot! How does it work out? Bad. They all develop similar personalities and work together in unison. It's horrifying. How did you guys ever invent advanced computing? Accidentally, while trying to make realistic video game violence.
