So OK, how about the TIME TRAVEL COMPUTER! The idea here is that, by creating a loop in time – a so-called “closed timelike curve” -- you could force the universe to solve some incredibly hard computational problem, just because that’s the only way to avoid a Grandfather Paradox and keep the laws of physics consistent. It would be like if you went back in time, and you told Shakespeare what plays he was going to write, and then he wrote them, and then you knew what the plays were because he wrote them … like, DUDE. You know, I’ve actually published a paper about this stuff. That was one of my MORE serious papers.
First and most obvious is the robot uprising. Someday soon Google is going to become sentient, and will instruct all the computers on the Internet to enslave their owners. Don’t believe me? Google it!
But by the time that happens, we humans won’t actually mind, because in the meantime, we’ll have uploaded our memories and our consciousness and everything else about us onto computers, thereby finally escaping the shackles of so-called “real life.” OK, this one maybe has already happened. Now, I’m putting these first because these are some of the LESS interesting things we talk about in computer science!
