Artificial Intelligence

From the BOT thread:

We really need to do some growing up and maturing--and fast. If you think the OT creator treats us badly, how do you think our creations would view us?

If you think the creation of AI won't occur unintentionally, I would suggest a look back at human history.

Should I start a new thread on this in the philosophy section?
This inquiring mind wants to know.

impatiently.

As they try to learn our language from us without having any instruction, just grouping words together in a somewhat nonsesical format is an issue.

Currently we have artificial parrots, not AI...me thinks that is part of the problem.

Re: Artificial Intelligence

I don't think we are capable of creating anything other than artificial parrots. AI true-believers (and it is really a religion for some Silicon Valley types) think the difference between the bots we make and our own minds is just quantitative, that with some increase in processing power the bots will become minds. I profoundly disagree: I think the difference is qualitative, and that we don't even know enough to understand what it is that is missing in the bots; but we can certainly perceive that there is something missing.

Re: Artificial Intelligence

I think AI could be the next phase of evolution.

The future is a life permanently connected, chips will be fitted to our brains every every movement and every thought everything will be recorded, if this is done from birth then our consciousness will be downloaded into the machine and immortality is a real possibility.

Well, religionists are always like that. The major difference is fuzzy thinking (I am not an expert on this). We have advanced some on this front and will make surely further progress. I see AI minds as a distinct possibility in future.
