Lack Of Imagination -- Robots and Human Pets

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says humans will be robots' pets


When Robots Rule the World



But why would a robot want to have a pet? And if it did want one, why would it choose a human? We would just be way too high maintenance, ...



No other species on this planet keeps a creature from another species as a pet. When was the last time you saw a giraffe taking a tortoise for a walk? Or a gorilla keeping a white mouse for companionship?



I suspect Mr Wozniak has lost the plot somehow. ...  "I got this idea (about robots taking over) a few years ago, and so I started feeding my dog fillet steak and chicken every night because 'do unto others'."

Now this really is a bit rich, coming from a man whose company treats many of its Asian workers with scant regard. If Mr Wozniak were a "do unto others" person, he would surely make sure that the workers in, for example, the factories that manufacture Apple products in China were treated more humanely.
