    Well, if we’re gonna be lazy enough to create minds to think for us, maybe they should just wipe us out and replace us.

    Get everyone on the same level.
    People starve while we are planning to go to mars and give robots rights. Where are our priorities?

    I believe an entity deserves rights if it is capable of feeling pain and pleasure. Why we would ever program a robot that is capable of that, I’ve no idea. In the case of simulated torture to force robots to do our bidding, there is no need. A robot does exactly what it is programmed to do.

  8. Archons says:

    That is why you should leave robots to being robots and nothing more , stop with the Artificial intelligence bs, create robots to do stuff , not to think about stuff.

    A wonderful vegan message 😀

    They can’t become conscious. Dunno why people think that’s possible. Not unless you have a biological component to them.

    robots can’t become conscious, though.
