I love you. I will kill you! I want to make love to you: The evolution of AI in pop culture

Dr. Minsky himself co-authored a novel about an AI robot... it took the form of a cylinder, and had appendages that kept sub-dividing, which it uses to perform brain surgery on its human ally.

Hahaha Minsky's co-author was Harry Harrison! Fantastic!
