It's more of a testament to our ability to adapt that anything else really. PS: it is a little odd that Robert acts so incredulous about Monism but later just throws out, "ya' know, those singularity guys, (Kurzweil et al) of course, of course! The Furby may be assembled, but it won't do anything until you add batteries - just as humans need electricity to function.
If we need a companion, we'll take anything that is available and normalise all it's strange abnormalities in or minds, so we can keep the conversation going. " So you're telling us you ARE familiar with these concepts, you just reject them? If I had all of the necessary parts to make a Furby, I could assemble them to working order.
Using hexagonal carbon nanotubesarranged in fractal patterns with a hexagonal motif, that then share resonance traits of microtubules and using either ultrasonic or radio waves to vibratethe nanotubes at 8 mhz or something similar to human brain microtubules would , I think , be one method to create an antenna or receiver for a bit ofconsciousness. Yeah yeah, well, they say...." Well yes we do know those guys, (or should) but then what was all that business earlier about "can't go there? In fact he has made an android copy of himself Geminoid HI-1.
If 'consciousness' does indeed reside within the 1st order temporal field, then one wonders if one could 'coax' or invite , as it were some bit of consciousness to reside within the artificial vessel made out of these nanotubes. " You're well familiar with it but just don't buy it? I had the following exchange with Cleverbot about and hour ago and it's still thinking about how to respond. Repliee Q2 is an extremely life like android with censors all through her body.
Silicon based intelligence becoming self aware ......seems I saw this in a movie once ......"I'll be back" Asimov's story some 50 years ago depicting the computer "realizing" the human is not necessary to complete the space trip .... Because to my ears that's like saying, "Humans evolved from other life forms over billions of years? If I had all of the proper organs and body parts of a human and I sewed them together like Frankenstien, I could not bring that human to life.
Hmmmmm Great story What about the idea of using multi-walled carbon nanotubes as a biomimetic structure in place of microtubules. I just can't go there,"and then later saying, "you know, the punctuated equilibrium guys, Stephen Jay Gould and them? I think you guys missed a huge part of this topic by not covering Hiroshi Ishiguro, who has been seriously working on creating a human like androids at Osaka University.
I think if ever there is any hope of ending up with a significantly conscious and sentient computer , it will have to contain biomimetic carbon nanotubes. It was very funny though and the fact cyberbot grows with knowledge every day is rather exciting Another attempt to interview cleverbot:me: Did you hear about radiolab? The second question is can machines experience human emotion.
Then, we encounter a robot therapist whose inventor became so unnerved by its success that he pulled the plug. That wouldn't make sense, but it's one of the only things I can think of. Intelligence is like the scaffolding of a much richer experience. Cleverbot: Exactly, who is he, all I know is that he has a frozen cat! " What do you think WE are if not just extraordinarily complex mechanical machines? I know you traditionally play the role of the ignorant elder generation guy who's never "seen the movie," or apparently ever even picked up a copy of scientific American or watched a TED talk; you play the part of the guy who pretends to be incredulous about scientific concepts and has the sort of, religious-traditionalist, dualistic, non-materialist kind of world view, but you guys have been going way too far and playing way too 'dumb' lately.
And we talk to the man who coded Cleverbot, a software program that learns from every new line of conversation it receives..that's chatting with more than 3 million humans each month. It seems questionable that a machine could approach the potency of being human without at least two substitutions: 1. Wow, listening to this show I started wondering if one day soon a computer would be more human than a person with autism. Are telling me you've not even read a Ray Kurzweil book?? Lately the show has been on a downwards slide scientifically. I feel sorry for you, that you will never know what that tastes like.
Then, five intrepid kids help us test a hypothesis about a toy designed to push our buttons, and play on our human empathy. Imperfect and imaginative memory instead of consistent and programmable memory 2. People with autism have impairments in social communication, especially understanding and reacting to the emotions of others. FURBIES: so I about droped the i Pod when you mentioned these things. Not only do you belabor the episodes with explanations of concepts that ought to be common knowledge to anyone with Bachelors degree, (I mean really, you've interrupted the latest shows with 10 minutes digressions explaining general relativity, and the Turing Test.) Its great that you guys delve deeper into topics that wow freshman philosophy classes, but I wish you wouldn't ruin the show by assuming that these are utterly new and staggeringly breakthrough ideas that you must devote 10 minutes of remedial backstory to-- so there was this guy named Descarte--you've probably never heard of him--he had this radical idea about the ontology of consciousness... You are incapable of having anything important to say. Cleverbot: Too bad that hasn't improved your furby part especially reminds me of the twilight zone episode #7 "the lonely" where a prisoner on an asteroid in the future is given a beautiful android woman as a companion.
one day when i was reading through the web, i saw a many comment talking about DR MACK, some said he can restore broken relationship, i had no choice than to contact him on Dr Mack, i got a reply from him telling me that i will have my husband back. my Husband James Scot left me for another woman for three months' ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love who disflowered me when i was 21 years old. We've been connecting with objects even before ancient Greeks talked to their weapons. So this makes me think about the recent episode of This American Life, where they take the Psychopath Test. Mark Johnson Without sounding like a cynical nutcase - the music industry, television, movies, literature, fashion trends... A person that does well on the free site is more likely to decide to play for money. The site's dirty little secret is that it uses computer programs to generate articles about stocks in the news. I love the subject, but for crying out loud, just get him on the show and settle the matter: "Mind is a pattern perceived by a mind."There was an interview this week on NPR with an author whose topic was "filtering" by the various entities on the internet, both manevolent and well-intended. I would suggest that Cleverbot's response in this case indicates that it is fully human, just psychopathic. I'm in no way an expert on any of this, but listening to Jad and Caleb Chung argue about life and whether or not a Furby has what constitutes life made me want to comment.
i believed him and today i am glad to let you all know that my husband is back. about two years ago, A friend of mine rose donly told me he saw some testimonies of this great priest tokubo that he can bring back lover within 24 hours, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great priest on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 24 hours my boyfriend is going to call me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. Maybe the intelligence of objects in the future will encourage us to regain a more connective spirit. The following is a passage from the Upanishads: it would take a machine more than intelligence to experiencing the same sentiment: Then he realized, "I am indeed this creation for I have poured it forth from myself." In that way he became this creation, and verily he who knows this becomes a creator in this creation.chris from LA wrote: "Elite it up, don't dumb it down. Essentially, being a psychopath means that you show no empathy. they're all criticized when they're too formulaic - but that doesn't stop their rise to popularity. The site generates hundreds of articles every month in an attempt to draw people to the site. Basically about the little wormy programs that collect information about us while we are on line. What possible profit can be gained by operating a flirt-bot on an on-line dating service? The furby thing made me laugh-- reiminded of a trip i took with my ex and his stepdaughtershe had gotten a furby for Christmas - we were on our christmas vacation traveling across the country to see my ex-inlaws. Bot: I don't know what to do about my sadness Me: Radiolab Bot: Makes sense link to screencap would happen if we set two "sentient" bots down to have a conversation of their own? It seems Caleb was arguing about what constitutes life in psychological terms--that the Furby can process and react to stimuli means it's alive.
A moving story about a Vietnam vet brother coming from her mouth NEEDS TO BE TALKED ABOUT BECAUSE HOW DID THE TECHNOLOGY OF ROBOT COME up with that? Most fascinating since it's a step beyond robot answering who is Hillary Clinton. Customer service, health insurance, law, finance, education ... listening to this podcast I was on Facebook and saw this status of a 16 year old that I know: "So I'm cleaning my room at 2 in the morning (don't ask why but at least my mom should be happy that I'm even cleaning it) and I am going through this box and I see my ferbie... I honestly thought it was gonna murder me." Thought it was fitting. He taught a workshop on falling, jumping and physical applications of mime and clowning. Chung is accurate when suggesting that machines are just as alive as humans. Skinners "Beyond Freedom and Dignity" book to get a better outlook. Krulwich's assertion that interacting with a robot isn't "real." If a human being is programmed to respond or feel because of past behavioral reinforcement histories, is that any more real that a computer generated response doing the same thing. User: He was brought up amidst the war in Vietnam and although surrounded by the devastation of his homeland he committed his life to peace in the world. The key question that never got answered (I think that they do this on purpose, dancing all around it tantalizingly) is whether we are alive.
