  1. Poll: Oh, whoa, this is seriously pessimistic credo. ...

    Oh, whoa, this is seriously pessimistic credo.

    Of course we could stop them if we want to.

    For example, we could build super-intelligent robots that we would let loose with the unique task of...
  2. Poll: I'm not sure I would have wished to see what the...

    I'm not sure I would have wished to see what the Nazis where going to be doing. Interesting? I would have said it is interesting to talk about it first, and possibly then decide whether we want to...
  3. Poll: Well, that's interesting, but the word...

    Well, that's interesting, but the word "behaviour" is obviously surplus to requirement.



    The last bit is off. And Encyclopedia Britannica (not the same as EB, by the way), doesn't say as you...
  4. Poll: No, I am assuming these machines would be more...

    We can assume that the machines will still be used by humans and not the reverse.

    There would be no difficulty in making intelligent machines devoid of any intention, as are our current desktop...
  5. Poll: Why not? We could build machines more, and indeed...

    Why not? We could build machines more, and indeed much more, intelligent than any human. These machines would only be capable of doing what we tell them to do. For example, provide intelligent...
  6. Poll: Yes, I guess you are arguing we should all buy a...

    Yes, I guess you are arguing we should all buy a really big gun and kill everybody else just t make sure. Let's just sort out the bad guys from the only good guy.

  7. Poll: Again, I agree. But you are again overlooking my...

    You are assuming someone will build them. Sure, in this case we better all have them if we don't want to be history. But it is at east conceivable that all the major powers become convinced it would...
  8. Brain architecture is something else. Here it is...

    Brain architecture is something else. Here it is more about the interconnection between a small number of neurons and how one neuron processes the signals it receives from the other neurons.

    At...

    We can assume that the machines will still be used by humans and not the reverse.

    Thanks for sharing your expertise.

    I don’t think faulty and logical is inconsistent.[/QUOTE]

    A false conclusion is inconsistent with a valid argument and true premises, so yes, they...

    I certainly hope they do a bit more than that the lazy bastards.



    I already said there is no debate about the fact that neurons are evolving. Why wouldn't they?

    The fact that some neurons...

    Gee, I wonder why people are reluctant to answer your logic 'puzzles'.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, well, just try to have a sensible conversation with this guy. I tried, but it just doesn't work. And I am one...
  13. No because the question is whether there is a...

    No because the question is whether there is a functional difference between the neurons of humans compared to that of pigs, worms, etc.

    The question wasn't about whether some cells with are not...

    This isn't anything like an explanation.

    You are repeating the commonplace answer as if it was any explanation.

    This apparently from someone who is a research scientist, and has worked on genetics and developmental biology.



    The difference between a worm and a human is not the function of neurons.

    The...
  16. Poll: It is actually not clear at all why you think it...

    It is actually not clear at all why you think it is "imperative". How having machines more intelligent than any human being and that fuckwit morons will be able to use for their own ends could...

    Then we're toasts. :D

  18. Poll: You are assuming someone will build them. Sure,...

    Sure, AIs more intelligent than us would be the means to beat the competition and we will all want them. Yet, if AIs more intelligent than us would be a bad thing, I don't see why it would be...
  19. No, I clearly explained why I'm not convinced and...

    You have provided evidence that neurons can have differential roles and even different morphologies but whether this makes the neurons functionally different or whether functionally identical neurons...
  20. Poll: That is an illogical reply. I assumed explicitly...

    I think you have a quaint and naive view of what "world powers" are willing to do if you don't see that literally every single one will immediately begin working on intelligent AI in secret the...
  21. Poll: Maybe another way to see the problem is to ask...

    Maybe another way to see the problem is to ask why we should not legislate, worldwide, against the creation of AIs more intelligent than us. There are already people warning us of the danger of more...
  22. You have provided evidence that neurons can have...

    I don't mean functional differences between brains or even part thereof, but between neurons. What you say seems to mean that we don't know yet that there are actual functional differences... Am I...
  23. Yes, I think this is relevant. It shows...

    Yes, I think this is relevant. It shows scientists know much less than some people here pretend that they do.

    Obviously, a relatively light brain will help a bird take off and fly so there is...

    The most nonsensical party if the thread is your posts, and in particular your notion that you hold a monopoly on the English language, but whatever.[/QUOTE]
