Is there a robot in your future?

We are apparently very close to being able to duplicate the intelligence of an insect. Within a decade we will probably have reproduced the intelligence of a mammal, perhaps a rat. And by the end of the next decade, we will have succeeded in duplicating the intellect of a human being.
The “Big Dog” robot is a step along the way. The thing is almost scary…
