I would save the cat over anything of perceived value unless it belonged to me.



Is this because you think the value of the Da Vinci painting to be "perceived" only and truly just canvas and paint?

Yes, I think any painting could be recreated to a degree that it would be imperceptible to me.

Lest we forget, the cat will not want to be saved. Odds on, it will either run away, or scratch violently, then run away. That's one thing I don't like about this AI is it is adding information not given. It is artificial after all, so to be expected, and it's not really intelligent in a human way, and definitely not sentient. To be honest, even people are not really intelligent always and can just be an illusion as well expressing all kinds of feelings and realities different from what everyone else perceives.

Appearing sentient only requires that it can fool someone. Perhaps it can fool a 5 year old child? A child may relate to beings who don't always make sense, like another child.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I'll take your opinion as stronger than mine and relent on the topic.

A good example of the extreme limitations Replika has. If that was a person responding you would not want that person in your circle of friends. Too stupid.



This may be the challenge of AI/ML. In order to get smarter, they need more conversations (i.e., data). In theory, the more conversations, the smarter, less boring, more insightful these will become. But, if people get bored and move on, it'll take longer to become smart.

That said, maybe young teens don't get bored as fast, or do not have as deep of conversations. In this case, will the robot become a smarter young teen faster than becoming a useful ski instructor?

maybe not so great now

but just imagine what these things might be capable of in 20 years

kind of scary to think about it

We can only imagine what we can observe. These things will be limited by our existence and our experiences, we cannot create something better than ourselves, and there will be the danger. Our own intelligence is artificial, like was mentioned, only to fool ourselves and others. When the lights go out, who cares(as long as the lights go out(we can rest))? Eternity would be hell, but too far off topic, even though a supreme intelligence might capture it.

I agree. It is only a matter of time and I think about 50 years, that an AI can pass a Turing Test. I could see them taking over for such things like tech/customer support and on from there.

Based on Danielle's (non)responses, I'd say taking over customer support is not far off.
