 From the article in Science:
US military wacky-professor bureau DARPA has outdone itself this time,
issuing a request for "intelligent" electronic components and chemicals
which can "self-organise" themselves to form complex items such as routers,
fuel cells, biofuel factories or medical drugs. Indeed, reading between the
lines it appears as though the American killboffins are seeking nothing less
than the creation of artificial intelligent lifeforms.
The Pentagon crazytech chiefs' name for this initiative is "Physical
Intelligence", and full details were released last week. According to DARPA,
humanity at present has only a dim grasp of what intelligence actually is
and how it came into existence:

I can only hope that when a T-1000-like war machine is first created, it
will be programmed to the very core with The Geneva Convention and a great
pride at having been "built American!"

And hopefully the Russians and Chinese will not steal the technology from
