The Dumbass Lounge>Science is Cool....
Fish 09:43 PM 05-21-2012
This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

This is in support of the Penny 4 NASA project. If you enjoy anything you learned from this thread, consider making a donation and signing the petition.

Why should I care?:

I'm not sure I'd take that bet, if offered.

OK, no rights for the robots. So the new you, freshly digitized and downloaded into your new robot body, is put on shit shoveling duty for eternity or until your parts wear out, whichever comes first. You still think you're you. Still the same guy beneath that hard metallic skin, but now you get to shovel shit with no breaks, forever.

If we can hands free type on a computer using our brains, it doesn't seem to big a leap in imagination that if we can already get information out of the brain, we can put info in.
Like he said in the interview, they have already implanted memories in mice.

Also think they have successfully watched people's dreams.

Can they have a billion copies of themselves downloaded into separate robot bodies and be everywhere at once? Can they be hacked? Would we really be improving the human race or ensuring its destruction?

No, really, sounds like a great idea.
Most of these problems will have already been encountered by AI long before we have the computing power to mimic the human brain...

From what I gather, they want to plug the AI into people's brains and become a hybrid superhuman. I think we'll be dealing with these issues at, or close to, the same time.

We already use very simple AI.

With what we have now.

Duplicating the human brain is a long way off...

Also of note.. I can't remember if it's been posted here, but I recently read about a similar technology in which they've found a way to erase bad memories from a brain, while leaving the good ones. A'la Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind movie. Intended for PTSD treatment and such.

Between that and the ability to already implant memories in mice, I can see some good medical advances happening from this tech. But **** me if everyone can't see a little danger here.

I can see the danger, but after one treatment I won't any more.

Why don't you pray about this at your church? No danger there of anyone ever getting carried away with taking human lives.
