AI is an interesting subject within this area. Will it happen? If so, when? What form will it take? Crazy enemy like "The Terminator"'s Cyber-dyne? Or the helpful friend, think "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress". Or something more Star Trek like, very intelligent, but not sentient?
I think AIs will appear sentient, but will not be for some time. First, it is extremely difficult to program sentience. Also, there are dangers in programming an AI that way.
As for aging, I think before we develop decent cybernetics, we'll figure out how to halt the aging process. We're already well on our way
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
