The possibilities and challenges created by “smart” machines replacing humans have been a staple of science fiction for nearly 150 years, beginning with Samuel Butler’s novel Erewhon. Since then, the theme of smart machines has been developed in numerous books and films, most of which portray smart machines either as mankind’s helpers (e.g., Isaac Asimov’s Robot books), its equal partners (Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Lt. Commander Data) or its implacable enemies (The Terminator’s Skynet ).
