Yes. Thank you.

Kevin Warwick has created robots with the brain power of a wasp, and may soon
have built robots which are not only more intelligent than humans in some
ways, but also superior in their practical skills. In this book he argues that
humans may be at the mercy of these life forms, and be treated in the same way
as humans treat animals today. He proposes that there is an urgent need for an
anti-proliferation treaty to prevent these and other even more horrifying

"anti-proliferation treaty"? Hmmm... sounds like the prelude to enforced

See, he first has to prove that intelligent robots are possible/feasible, then
the urgency of an anti-proliferation treaty becomes less laughable. (Or his
brain has already been displaced by alien intelligence... Only his surgeon
knows for sure.)
