Aliens could be sending artificial intelligence to Earth to make first contact infecting our own robotics to imitate life on our planet, scientists are warning.
Should beings from beyond the stars be heading toward the planet, it is likely they are sending AI rather than flesh and blood contacts.
Their robotics could be impacting our very own technology though, as Harvard University Professor Avi Loeb says the aliens hope for a "kinship" between machine and messenger drone.

He claimed the future of contacting those from other planets rests in the advancements of artificial intelligence, which can be manipulated by those hoping to make contact.
Speaking to Nub TV's paranormal host, Mark Christopher Lee, Professor Loeb claimed contact with those in the Milky Way depends heavily on the tech.
He said: "In the future our AI systems may try to imitate extra terrestrial AI systems because they would be far more advanced.
"And perhaps once they reach similar levels that will usher our way into the class of intelligence civilisations in the Milky Way galaxy."
Professor Loeb also claimed there could already be signs of life on other planets after the documentation of an object passing through the galaxy in 2017.
He claimed the Oumuamua, which as first spotted in 2017, could be evidence of an extra terrestrial scouting mission, with Professor Loeb claiming it could be an aircraft.
First sighted through a Hawaiian telescope, Oumuamua, which translates to "a messenger from afar arriving first" could be a sign of alien life.
