More than the threat of a fully autonomous robot going rogue, the idea of human controlled robots being hijacked is of much greater concern to me. Over the next few years, most devices that we interact with will become more and more automated to the point that in ten years, our cars may operate more like robots than like a traditional driven vehicle. Think of a military scenario, where the enemy hijacks the battle field robots and, instead of the old-style strategic bombing back home, hijacks all of our cars and appliances. I'd call that much more likely unless we really come up with better general security methodology.
