Are they big nasty, robots with glowing green eyes and 8 tentacle like arm things? I'd certainly run away from them

LOL

IF (TRobot.Mode = Attack) AND (TRobot.EyeColor = clScary)
THEN
BEGIN
  CASE TBloke.State OF
    bmAlive                 : TBloke.Alive := FALSE;
    bmNerd                  : TBloke.Alive := FALSE;
    bmScreamingWoman        : TBloke.Alive := FALSE;
    bmScientificType        : TBloke.Alive := FALSE;
    bmArnie(with a big gun) : TBloke.Attack;
  ELSE
    TBloke.Alive := FALSE;
  END;

  Population := Population - 1;
END;

I thought your dad was Robocop - can't you hide behind him? It's mere mortals like us (who DON'T have cybernetic parents) who have to run screaming for the hills

I read the link at http://www.hip.atr.co.jp/~degaris/Artilect-phil.html  and, it is the most foolish document in a long time. First, he claims that soon we will be albe to scan in a brain to the computer. Lets for a minute say this was true. How do we run the brain? Does anyone out there have a body emulator so you can run your brain? How will the brain talk with the computer? A brain knows how to use eys and ears etc but How does it talk to a cpu?

You obviously didn't read the document...or didn't understand it.

Can you quote the part that says we will be able to "scan" in the contents of a human brain?  I don't remember reading anything like that at all.

Interesting opinion, Redneck.  I know the people programming AI, and that's why _I'm_ scared.  (Not pathologcially terrified, but unnerved.)

Redneck:

You don't believe that AI could turn on the people that created it?

If you place "restrictions" on what the AI can and cannot do, is it really AI?

To me, AI means that the computer possesses a consciousness of sorts, and can make it's OWN decisions about human beings and their value.

The only way to save us is to require all robots and AIs to join the Green Party.  This is the only political party that (a) cares about beings or species that are stupider than its own members (b) won't destroy natural space where biological life needs to live and (c) is used to playing lawyer for these lesser beings, even if they bite them on the leg.  It's like a whole party of babysitters or pro bono lawyers, really.  If the robots join the Greens there is no problem:  http://hubley.com/green/robots.htm - however if they are Democrats then they will tax humans unbearably to pay for space where stray robot dogs to roam - if they are Republicans then they will just shoot humans for target practice.
