Keloid is a remarkable new trailer created by by Big Lazy Robot. This may be one version of the technological singularity. Not the one we want. According to the Big Lazy Robot website:

Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A. I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority.
As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers.
The world has become a cell for all man and women, who withstand and endure their lives, rather than living them. Machines might have found a solution.
From now on, you are set free. ..”
Dystopian, brilliant and well done. Techno-philosophers should take notes. This may be our future if we don’t ask the deeper digital questions. What rules if any could we implement to keep this Keloid vision from manifesting?
