We are two steps away from Skynet, but probably only one step. Whenever the government makes an announcement, they already have it, and they are working on the next step.
Prepare to become extinct. Unfortunately, this is not a joke.
"Skynet is a fictional, self-aware artificial intelligence system which features centrally in the Terminator franchise and serves as the franchise's main antagonist. Scarcely depicted visually in any of the Terminator media, Skynet's operations are almost exclusively performed by war-machines, cyborgs (usually a Terminator), and other computer systems, with its ultimate goal the extinction of the human race."
