Better Be Prepared

Something to ponder as you enjoy this December weekend.  Popular Mechanics reports that University of Connecticut philosophy professor Susan Schneider theorizes that, as the title puts it "Superintelligent Machines Are Probably The Dominant Lifeforce In The Universe". 

The magazine reports:
In her new paper "Alien Minds," she proposes that by the time civilizations are able to communicate by radio, they're a few short steps away from developing artificial intelligence. One they reached that level of advancement, they may have opted to upgrade their biology to something that's a biomechanical hybrid or something entirely synthetic. There could be a whole mess of Borg out there, in other words. 
You can read the whole thing here.

Looks like this really is our future:
