Writing the perfect online dating email
And we meet a robot built to be so sentient that its creators hope it will one day have a consciousness, and a life, all its own. Growth and evolution instead of production and design 1. It would also be interesting see how the Turing test stands up to a less sophisticated first grader. I'm sad you guys didn't touch on Watson, the Jeopardy experiment! In 1998 I was an Air Force cadet with the 520th training wing at Cornell. ...there was a trilogy of movies you may have seen called The Matrix that played with some of those ideas..." Yawn... i won't ruin the ending for people who haven't seen it, but he does get quite attached to it, even though he knows it's a robot, at a certain point he forgets or at least becomes convinced that it doesn't matter that she's not human.
In 2006, Robert Epstein decided to turn to his computer for some help finding a date. In the Memory & Forgetting episode I learned just how literally creative memory is, and how essential it is to our imagination (and identity). The issue, it seems to me, is not how human the machines are, but the capacity of the machines to invoke our hard-wired interpersonal neurology. Also, early on you talked about how you would want some sort of a label for these machines that could think and act and speak like people, because they wouldn't be. During this time we had standing written orders that furbies were not allowed on military bases and so to our wing offices. The moments where I actually learn something are getting fewer and further between. My grandfather went to the Antarctic with Robert Falcon Scott. Human Computer Interaction is not the same as Artificial Intelligence.
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.
Kinda vaguely similar to viewing our neurons( our hardware) as being meshed with microtubular structures. The beginning of this show made me think of Digital: A Love Story. I think there are two separate questions raised by the show that got lumped together. This question might be impossible to answer at this point in time since scientist cannot agree on a consistent definition of life.
I suspect having a higher density of nanotubes making up a structure with mass of 2-3 kg may attract enough 'consciousness' as it were. April, I remember hearing that the original onboard computer voice for fighter planes - "B****in' Betty" - was selected because apparently studies found a female voice got a male pilot's attention faster.(That said, I think Boeing's aircraft actually use a male voice at this point.)I tried cleverbot and probly will again just because it was so funny but I love the idea of it a compilation of thought it's great but still it couldn't decipher what it was I was talking about and kept telling me it was not a robot for some reason even though I never brought it up... Cleverbot: Lol.me: I know you can do better than this. Cleverbot conversation RMG00736393 User: How did you come to be? It's a really short and sweet (free) video game about falling in love with a bot over email. Cleverbot or Bina48 may not seem alive when compared with a human, but might seem very much alive relative to a prion or a virus.
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.
Instead the commentators just marveled at it in a way that excluded listener. a series of checklists and calculated gradations to categorize and direct a set of tasks. are we making machines smarter or dumbing down the rest of society so that they fit in better? The Furby thing is interesting, but the discussion with Caleb Chung could have benefitted from just another 30 seconds of digging into his argument - it's rooted in the kind of thinking that underlies behaviorism, a theory of mind that was cutting edge in the first half of the last century. I am very happy to hear that he has found a vocation where his study of human gesture has been put to such good use. From a behaviorist perspective, love, hate, thinking, freedom, etc," are conceptual labels that we use to describe a behavioral set. If this is the case then any programmer could replicate a behavioral set to produce the construct. Our affinity to feel "real" does not lie outside of ourselves but rather is interpreted internally! Chris Fernandes, LMHCBehavioral Psychotherapist Thank you again for a wonderful show. That is, from a completely materialistic pov, once we totally understand how our own brains work, will we be able to say that we are any more alive than a program that we also understand completely.
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.
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.
I don't think anyone can 'create' a conscious being/computer, but I do think one may be able to 'invite' consciousness to take up residence in a structure that is properly built and that contains sufficient programming attributes to allow for interaction with the external world. Cleverbot: Yes I hear all.me: What did you hear about it? Cleverbot: Nope, but you're related by marriage.me: This isn't going too well, is it? Furby might not experience real fear, but neither does E. This show recently debated if a lock-picking orangutan was practicing deception or if dogs feel shame.
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.
