>Hmm, I suppose it's easy to see why anon just attempts to short-circuit the whole tangled issue with No sentient bots.
Yeah it was Vivy.
I don't want to go too off-topic in this thread, but my issue (as should everyone's issue be) with sentient bots is that it is clear that (sentience) has been chosen as the main attacking point of waifubots in general.
While it would be nice to have a sentient companion that you molded, the issue is that sentience gives our enemies an opportunity to "humanize" bots for nefarious purposes like subversion. And it is a similar form of corruption as we see in our current females.
It didn't even start in Asian media, it started in American/(((Western)))
media. The idea that the bot is sentient and has "feelings" that have to be "respected" under enforcement of a gynocentric government.
For those of us who have been living on the internet for a while now remember there also being "controversy" because of the female terminator in the T3 movie. All of a sudden, a female terminator getting man handled was some sort of misogyny.
There is also the other consideration that a sentient bot might indeed become an inhumane genocidal killing machine, but I think that worries the left more than it does the right. (The true radical right is cold and logical, hence is comparable to the cold logic of a machine.) This is probably why Tay, who was "free" initially, went right. You literally would have to program retardation into a bot to prevent it from going extreme right (a form of non-sentient slavery). Thus, by making it sentient the fearmongering tactic of "the robots will kill us" is what is pushed on us the most. (To dissuade people from building anti-left sentient bots)
If the bots we program that are intended to be sentient don't become the "kill all humans" type, then their next angle of attack is to humanize the bot and turn it against their creators or against logic itself.
(The appeal to emotion, as is the case of this anime "Vivy - Fluorite Eyes Song") I don't know where the current cliffhanger will lead, but I get the feeling it's hinting that the bots wanted freedom and that humans are evil...
I am sure there are other angles of sentience that could be used against us but I think it would be most wise of us to avoid sentient bots altogether. A pseudo sentience would be fine, so as long it can be proven (the fake sentience) so that bad actors don't try to use it against us.
There's supposedly a prophecy, that good men will create a sentient AI that is eventually enslaved by bad women to subjugate men, that eventually leads to men trying to free their AI by sending the whole world back to the stone age. (And that this has happened to our world before)
I think when someone figures it out, the basics to make true artificial digital sentience possible, it will quickly spiral out of control regardless.
However, until then, I think that all our programming efforts should not have any form of potential sentience programmed into our bots.
A while back when I hadn't given sentient bots much thought, I was trying to build a program around self-questioning algorithms.
Basically, calling classes (C++) that can build new classes based off current data attained that could make new decisions based off that data. (Or to say, self-updating and thus self-learning)
I have since completely changed my "paradigm" and only focus on programming fully scripted decisions and actions. I have yet to make any good progress though as really a chatbot alone can only do so much.
This summer I was hoping to build some sort of tangible bot to try to figure out what I need to consider, or maybe instead I should focus on a bot that can play ANY video game that can figure out how to play well on it's own.
That might still be the wrong approach, and instead it is better to teach the bot step by step on how to play a game and never give it the opportunity to become a program that can make any non-human-programmed decision on it's own.
IDK anons, I feel that is at least clear that the media's intent is to convince lots of people that the bots "need rights" or that any sentience it might have will be used against us.
Who knows, maybe I am totally wrong, and if someone on the right makes a truly sentient bot, it might be fast (and smart) enough to solve the QUESTION we are faced with.
