What use a learning/imagining robot has? If we had a robot that does shopping for its owner, and suddenly some disaster strikes and the shop collapses, the robot could be given instructions by anyone to go dig up those buried under the rubble. As it digs up the first few survivors, it learns that he can use the sound people under the rubble make to find them more quickly, then it imagines/wonders... how could I do this even faster? and it decides that calling for other robots in the area is the best action. The learning robot saved lives, while the fixed state robot is still looking for the peas.
BTW...why is it that most humanoid robots they have designed so far looks super creepy?
On the other hand, I understand certain men`s insatiable desire to push the envelope in Art, War, and certainly Science (science somewhat pushes its own envelope, that`s sort of its objective).
Then, somewhere in the middle, I remember that the motivation of Autocognitive electro-mechanical beings isn`t necessarily something we can comprehend, either enough to fear it OR revere it.
Would it be based on survival? Territory? They`re not animals, so if territory or survival were an issue it might only come in the context of rebellion from subservience. Again, would there be any inclination toward this, and do we really want to take the chance?
Were the takeover to happen, would it be out of fear OF or pity FOR us? I could easily see the combination overlord/savior complex of the Matrix`s Architect.
and that thing is too creepy to have living in my house being a "domestic robot helper"
Have to watch out for those things though... robots could very indeed go crazy with too much power.
I agree with Gorgak and Rawr - This thing is very very very very bad.
Although this is like my DREAM job...can you imagine? Can you imagine the CODE, having a nonbiological entity ACTIVELY rewriting its controls differential equations to adapt to a visually interpreted stimuli?!?!
*goes into coma from awesomeness*
DESTROY IT BEFORE IT TAKES OVER THE WOOOORLD
Breathe... calm down... relax. Think happy thoughts. Think of all the futuristic movies that contain sex robots instead.
2) I`m sure the inventors of this thing have heard of the Asimov`s Three Laws of Robotics. Just hope the apply them. (PS: Thanks to R. Daniel it`s 4 now).
