[i]However, the computer is not [b][red]yet[/red][/b] set to replace the human being altogether. "The idea is that the computer detects a potential event and shows it to the operator, who then decides what to do – so [b][red]we are still a long way off[/red][/b] from machines replacing humans," Dr Velastin says.[/i] Unstated inference: But machines WILL eventually replace humans. And Soylent Green will replace food.

[sarcasm]That would work perfectly. I mean, if we all relied on machines to do everything, the world would run very smoothly. There is no way this software could be wrong, or lead to unrighteous arrests. No, not in my wildest dreams could a computer be wrong![/sarcasm]
