Robots drive people bananas for several reasons. One reason: Robots will do all our work and we don't need to pay them a dime. Second reason: Robots can withstand endless repetitions to build products. Third reason: Robots manufacture products much faster than we can. Fourth reason: Robots could be used in human society for a wide variety of tasks such as being a chauffeur, a butler, a waiter, or even a prostitute. Nevertheless, there seems to be one task that I'm wondering if anyone would accept in human society: Would you want a robot teaching classes at your nearby school; especially if you had children enrolled in that place? Now, I'm not talking about some dumb low-class robot that bangs into walls every three seconds. I'm talking about a very highly intelligent robot with an IQ of 250 or 300 that can compute things at amazing speeds and easily wrap intellectual circles around our brains.
