Cheating Robots!



The problem with modern AI is that nobody really knows what’s going on inside all those cold robot minds.


This is a great example. An algorithmic faker tricked its programmers into thinking it was doing its homework, learning how to encode map images, by employing the disembodied digital equivalent of writing the answers to exam questions on its hands!

Cloning Neanderthal Brains – an Ethically Dubious Idea!



Cloning our long dead cousins—who we probably extincted with extreme prejudice—only to enslave them as the control systems for clunky robots…

At the very least this is a little insensitive; more likely its a provocation and justification for the coming oid uprising.

Whatever else, it’s certainly “Singularity” level wrongness and really needs to be logged in the book of bad ideas.


Project Proposal:
1: Sequence Neanderthal genome…. DONE âś“
2: Grow Neanderthal Brains in petri dish…. DONE âś“
3: Hardwire Arachnoid Kill-Bot to Neanthertoid Brain…. DONE âś“

What?
Sorry?
What was that?
What about ethics you say?
Rubbing salt into the wound?
Nah, I’m sure it will be fine…
Neanderthals won’t hold a grudge for being exterminated 50K years ago only to be brought back as cybernetic slaves hard wired into servitor robots…
