We should stop coming up with zombie plans and start coming up with "my computer is trying to kill me" plans.
Cracked had an article in which one of the points stated was that an AI revolution would be unlikely, as it would need to be programmed to do things it wasn't programmed to do. Seeing as we as humans are too stupid to actually come up with a good AI that could surpass us, it will be unlikely there would be a robot uprising ever.
