      I can’t see why not in principle, but I don’t think it will actually happen. And in any case not any time soon.

      It’s possible. We’re making robots now that can do a lot of things a human can do. But making robots that can really think for themselves in the way that humans do (or better!) is very hard. It’s going to be a long time before we can make robots that think like people, but I think it’s possible in principle.

      No time soon. There not advanced enough, either in terms of hardware or their programming.
