So I feel like I keep reading stories about folks trying to build AIs using video games that are becoming close to or threatening self awareness.  Which always leads me to make this joke:

Do you want Skynet? Because that's how you get Skynet

The latest example is this Mario AI developed by a German university.  You can watch the attached video for more information.

In truth I actually find stuff like this really cool, but because I've been such a consumer of Sci-Fi I've only heard about "the robots coming to get us" a crap ton of times, so it is fun to joke as we get closer and closer to maybe actually causing that.
