do you find those kind of experiments acceptable?

Whether I find it acceptabe or not, it'll happen anyway. Even when not allowed by any kinda of law or culture/social pressure. Technology will continue to be developed. When needed, in the underground.

Maybe someone should create database of volunteers

Hahahaha, maybe indeed. Better to have some subjects available :)

Tech is developing faster than understanding of human brain and consciousness so even if some shell is to be ready tomorrow

True. Though it maybe AI that will better understand the human brain and consiousness. Or, at least AI is able to create an AI, not the same as our brains and how it works, but similar enough for humans not able to detect the difference. It's that later type of 'human' AI that I very much believe will be possible at some point in time.

We'll be adding natural moving body parts to robots we know. At some point in time these will resemble real humans (and animals for that matter). Boston Dynamics has some great robots already. The other day I watched one that is able to dance, jump, balance and all. Give it another 10 year, and you'll be amazed and shocked at the same time. Same will happen to me as well 😉

You ever watched the TV series 'Kight Rider'? Kid, the car AI, didn't it feel like a real person; At least to some extend?


I asked if you find those kind of experiment not as approval (ofc no one is going to ask us what we think :)), but as your opinion.
Yeah, dancing robots as party crew that does not require distancing and masks, place your orders now ;P
I am amazed and shocked not with how robots are becoming more able but how humans are becoming more disabled :/
Did not watched KR series but did Black mirror and Westworld which are imo very nice contemplations on the given topic.

Well, thats a good question :) In principle I'm not against such experiments. It'll need to be volunteers though. Purely based one own will. We need think of something that'll guarentee that. As you already mentioned, there will always be people around who like to embark on such experiment.

Yea, this is something really strange with us humans. We're getting too lazy. Intelligence is not always leading species in the right direction. In fact, I'm pretty sure we are getting dumber by the second. But as a collective, we are not getting smart, more the opposite. Such dependence in technology, and how quick that has gone. Though I kow very well still the times before a personal computer, or phone. It's unthinkable to be without one of each today. Can't remember any phone number anymore, not even the one from my employer I got 3 years ago. Soon, and we don't have to do anything anymore, we always have some AI around helping with our schedule and tasks, maybe do all our tasks. Then we will be not a lot dependent on tech anymore, but 100% (guess we are already enroute).

Both "Black Mirror" and "Westworld", I didn't watch. Maybe I should :)

You definitely should :) BM is easier to follow, independent episodes. WW requires more attention for different timelines; although have some unnecessary and boring parts, at the end is worth it :) I also recommend Russian series Better than us. Enough homework for now, you.ll get new one when finish this ;P

Thanks :) Added the russian one to the top of the list as well, where BM and WW are already marked ;)
