I remember reading something about artificial intelligence earlier this year, and of course like many articles/presentations they gave an educated prediction that AI will likely arrive in the next 50-100 years. After that they said there would be an explosion of technological advancements and scientific discoveries.
I believe it's only a matter of time until they succeed, but really who knows what an AI will do when it's created. Would it kill us all? Work along side us and help us to save our planet? Would it completely ignore us because we're too slow for it and just do its own thing (don't forget that a microsecond for a computer is an incredible amount of time)?
If we can make an AI that is not on our side, but on the side of life, I think that would be one huge step to redeeming ourselves. Humanity as a whole sure as shit won't stop destroying the planet, but perhaps an AI can do something about it =/
We lose the bees we lose a lot more than just the things they pollinate and honey. You would be astounded at the amount of things that you use everyday that can't function without beeswax.
Sounds like bee farming will become a profitable investment in the future.
