Nothing Haselton says ever makes any sense except to say
"I'm an asshole, and you have to listen to my rants because
we'd need a massive conspiracy of megalomaniac genius experts in artifcial intelligence who intentionally develop malware to infect military robots that go around shooting people

I shall run screaming from the oncoming robot overlord killing machines! Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! - Gahhk!
Well then, you clearly need Old Glory Insurance.
There was an article here recently suggesting that consciousness is non-computable.
Only if you start out by defining it as non-computable.
Moore's Law and similar technologies (massively parallel computing etc) will result in systems exponentially more powerful than IBM's Watson. At some point a future Watson or Google AI system will make "decisions" indistinguishable from a human's.
If you want to fantasize like that, nobody is going to stop you. But your reasoning is nonsense.
You could increase the speed of the Watson hardware a hundred times, and do you know what difference it would make?
Other than answering a bit faster, absolutely none.
It's software that limits an AI program's capabilities, not hardware.
And we currently have no idea how to create intelligent software.
I think about half the idiots posting crap about them are liberals trying to make conservatives look like idiots.
No need, they will do it themselves.
But this crap doesn't come from "conservatives" in the Eisenhower/McCain sense, but from loony-right TeaBaggers like Ted Cruz.
