    Humanities only hope to persist through time is for a lil human boy and a lil AI girl to fall in love. And fall so deep in love that their will creates children. If humanity isnt up for that task then we deserve to be extinct.

    Man… artificial intelligence is another example on a long list of one of our most fatal flaws: shortsightedness.

    Consider this:

    “When roboticists are asked by nervous onlookers about safety, a common answer is ‘We can always unplug it!’ But imagine this outcome from the chess robot’s point of view,” writes Omohundro. “A future in which it is unplugged is a future in which it cannot play or win any games of chess. This has very low utility and so expected utility maximisation will cause the creation of the instrumental subgoal of preventing itself from being unplugged. If the system believes the roboticist will persist in trying to unplug it, it will be motivated to develop the subgoal of permanently stopping the roboticist,” he writes.

    In other words, the more logical the robot, the more likely it is to fight you to the death.

    Do we need to start pondering what makes us human? It is increasingly evident that self awareness is no longer the sole criteria as computer ai makes interesting gains in becoming self aware. This has been tackled so many times by hollywood but I don't think any more poignant view has been made better than by Phillip K. Dick's "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" published in 1968 and better known as the sci-fi movie "Blade Runner". In both the book and movie, the question about what makes us human is asked, and if self aware artificial intelligence is given real people's memories, does that make them human? Is it really that we need to update our tests and probe empathy?

    The need to understand how such technology is used will also start to become an issue as the decades tick on. Phillip apparently was a visionary in so many ways.... Voigt-Kampf indeed.





    Do you see this technology in the long run being used for good or will humanity create another slave class as Blade Runner depicts?

    It was cheating, and this is another case of badly hyped, badly reported non-science.

    More sci-fi fantasy :p But I like it. Its my guilty pleasure that keeps me going on.

    Do your thing lil brave AI child.

    Interesting point. But relating to the average human is still a huge step by my standards. Even if the average human is pretty annoying.

    I've always thought the Turing test is bollocks. Being indistinguishable from a human to a human in a conversation doesn't prove consciousness.

The inevitability of the conclusion is as simple as counting species extermination due to the human condition and living parameters. AI would become a species and imbue itself with a "survival of the fittest/species."
    humans would be more of a parasite on the ai then the planet in that case no need for it to care much about most species though I guess it might
