So Freedom, who was thinking about becoming a mom someday, decided to get a little practice by adopting two gerbils and one ... Last year, Jon Ronson got an assignment from GQ to interview robots. Perhaps if you combine the What Does Technology Want? It was good fun back then -- a nice break from Norton Commander, ya' know? But real intelligence, that humans will not be able to create through mechanized means. Failing to even mention Ray Kurzweil and laughing off his work as "those people who think computers are going to grow legs and walk away. Been listening to your podcast everyday at work for the past month. Congratulations to Robert Krulwich on the recent Radiolab "Talking to Machines". For those who think that a chatbot is unusual or unique, I assure you that it is not. Cleverbot: My favorite game ever is 'The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time'. It can also be the process of determining the best interface for a new website.
I can't help but disagree with the idea that a machine will never be capable of feeling. We are simply clusters of biological nanobots that communicate via chemical signals to form something greater than the sum of their parts. I thought that people would interested that a bot finally past the test. If a machine is self-sufficient or can provide for itself - even for a finite period of time - and is aware of its existence and the physical world it exists in, and is able to learn and communicate emotions and ideas of its own, why shouldn't it be considered alive? As a side note, no less than HH the Dalai Lama has said it is theoretically possible for a computer to have a soul.i still can't believe it, because it highly unbelievable it just too real to be real. I felt like that experiment only showed that the children were human. You're so good at explaining and making complex concepts digestible, I wish you'd pursue that challenge rather than just making the show for high schoolers who dropped out of science class. So I wonder if what kind of connections we can show between psychopathy and our empathetic responses to robots? And those that are considered truly original, those that "break the mold", I would bet in analysis even that is still predictable. The articles are published under the names Seth Jayson, Dan Dzombak, Anand Chokkavelu, and others. the furby was in the back seatand every time we went down a hill and back up the furby seriously made a weee or AHwoo O sound IT was CREEPY- so we put little furby inthe trunk and i have to admit feeling slightly abusive :) we coudl still hear it in the trunk. But that takes the processes of homeostasis, the ability to adapt, the ability to reproduce, and all those other biological traits that constitute life out of the equation.Thank you priest tokubo for bringing back my lover and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for any one who might need the help of this great priest here is the email address: highpriesttokubo @ gmail. If the Barbie has used "emotional" voice as well, it is possible that the furbie and the barbie would have been closer to each other. Sorry to be so harsh but it kind of like when the local band you've been following for years goes national and completely changes their sound to some kind of pop-country crap, I feel like a once awesome thing is getting spoiled." Wow... I find that when I play video games in which you can choose between dialogue options which are considered "good" and "bad" in games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Fallout 3, and Mass Effect, I have a difficult time choosing the "bad" options even though it's just a game and the storyline marches on regardless of the options chosen. The really depressing observation I had while listening, was a recent customer service experience - where the representative had no real understanding about what my issue was, or what they could do to help. Great episode but I think that a pretty obvious question went unanswered - why did a chatbot have a profile on a dating site? After hearing the background on Caleb Chung, I am fairly certain that I met him while part of a mime workshop with Richmond Sheppard in LA in the 1970's. User: You see I don't know that I believe in deal, there are too many deals happening in the world right now. i told my ex that if that thing said let me out- it was going to stay back at the next rest area! Eventually perhaps inorganic beings will be able to do these things, and their life will exist as something quite distinct from that of human beings or other evolved species on Earth, but a Furby being able to respond to stimuli surely doesn't qualify."Actually, what you're missing in both cases is a power source.Maybe including ideas from Thaler, Hamerhof and Penrose would be helpful. Cleverbot: I listen to their music.me: Sorry--wrong answer. This question is also hard to answer without a clear definition of what emotions are uniquely human.Then enters the cautionary note of really considering what one was doing and the implications that the conscious computer would be a living entity .shares the same basic consciousness 'stuff' that we biologics do , but uses different hardware. However, a dog's ability to experience shame does not affect its ability to be alive.
