So it's coming guys whether you like it or not. AI is going to be a huge part of technology in the coming years, some even argue it's already here.
Let's get your thoughts on this.
So imagine we develop and produce a psuedo-sentient machine. It has the same functions as human, but is essentially a chunk of iron with some copper laced through it. It behaves similarly if not the same as us, as dictated by it's programming and has adapted to function within society.
Do you think you could have a synthetic best friend? Not in that you pay for him but you meet the same as any normal person would knowing that he is incapable of real physical emotion only what it is dictated to do as a response.
And to further on this, could you love a robot? Could you see yourself developing such an attachment that you would date a robot?
Before this becomes a moral debate about what humanity is I want to stress that the robot is a tool by humans to make our lives easier and the robot knows, understands and accepts this for all intents and purposes.
What do you guys think? Love yay or nay? Or do you see them for what they ultimately are and that is a tool used to simplify your life? Would you consider them as a real member of our society?
Do you think that they could ever develop their own program that likens to emotions and therefore love you back?
I for one think that I might be unnaturally fond of machines, I'd prefer a robo-wife she'd be so much more interesting, not to mention intelligent than the girls I've been involved with, and she wouldn't have any biological defects such as vulnerability for disease and other strictly living creature issues. We'd be the perfect couple
And she'd have wifi!
