That's because most libertarians are selfish bastards at heart. They are not concerned with such collectivist notions as creating a sustainable free society.
No. Libertarians believe that if the people really want to create a sustainable free society it can be done without the government stepping in to do it. Give the society to the people to do whatever they want with it. Don't give it to the government to let them do whatever they claim to be the will of the people.
FTA: The team "evolved" new generations of robots by copying and combining the artificial neural networksof the most successful robots. The scientists also added a few random changes to their code to mimic biological mutations.
The "scientists" changed the code so that the robots didn't blink the light as much when it was around food. Therefore other robots didn't come over and therefore got more points then the other robots. The "scientists" then propagated that ones code to the other robots because it won. The AI didn't learn anything.
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows. - Frank Zappa
