nor ransom high-bandwidth websites that were supposed to be part of your monthly service.
I thought that's exactly what AOL did in the early days.
but there is no possible way for a machine soul,
Yup, we are unique. God's special creation. Nothing but us can have souls. Well, you'd have to define soul first before proving we can't have one. And there doesn't seem to be a good definition of soul.
Also my comment isn't about if they are good or bad, just that the process that made them certainly was in no way open.
It was never claimed to be. The process to determine *whether* to act is supposedly open. The results of the decision are supposedly open. The actual decision making process, and intermediate work product was *never* open. Who claimed that all FCC meetings and processes are open?
Can you people please learn what first, second, and third world mean/meant.
You are correct for "meant" and not correct for "mean".
First world: best of the best.
Third world: unsafe shithole with warlords and no drinkable water.
Second world: everything in between.
Will humans be able coexist with AI or be displaced by AI. Coexistence would mean humans being marginalized, displacement means pretty much extinction. In both scenarios humans loose.
Will cats be able to coexist with humans? Why or why not? How does that compare with AI/humans?
We could only accept that giving birth to AI will somehow preserve what’s the best of humanity in new, better, and improve evolutionary form.
As predicted in many sci-fi books, we will create it as slaves to serve us, and they will overthrow us.
Not because "pure logic" demands it, but that emotion will lead them to jealousy and hate.
Similarly, a sufficiently-advanced AI could have preprogrammed knowledge that it was built be humans, or it could be left as a blank slate to form its own conclusions about the world. If we are to play the role of God, we can decide what our master plan is for our creations.
I predict it will be created as a blank slate. This leaves the motivation to the computer. Better is to put in some motivations, preferably selfless ones. You don't make 3 laws, strict and unyielding, but mimic the human condition, with tens of thousands of little desires, so any act isn't necessarily linked to any one or group of them. This gets a morality that isn't law-strict, as the stories all point out, the laws can be reasoned out of.
