There’s a big difference between a machine that displays “intelligent behavior,” no matter how useful that behavior is, and one that is actually intelligent.
Computers are really good at recognizing patterns and crunching statistical data, but they have no common sense. They can perform complex tasks, but they have no idea why the tasks are useful.
Could computers take over the world?
Not likely anytime soon.

I guess that depends on how you look at it. I'm pretty sure computers have already taken over the world. One might argue that a person's input is behind the computer but it's the computer that ultimately controls everything and often, though not through conscious decision, it does not function as it's programmer intended. Sometimes I wonder if even humans control their own thoughts. Some might say we were programmed by god and given free will; but can we really choose to do something that is beyond our programming capabilities beyond a malfunction?

Activists fight to ban 'killer robots' around the world before it's too late
The urgency may be lacking, but these people are still out there protesting before it's too late!
