I suggest a debate to propose a law that prohibits the Development, creation, distribution, and use of any form of an artificial intelligence now to prepare for the future.
Think about it, it is basically a person inside of a computer that can process and learn new information at a speed that no human would be able to achieve.
This would be to large of a danger to even take a chance to let it be.

I for one welcome our new computer overlords.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Ditto.

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

A friend of mine is a scientist who is developing computers with artificial intelligence. He modelled the prototype on colonies of insects and programmed it to respond to various stimuli in order to prosper and expand. The computer learns from it's mistakes and adjusts it's decision-making process accordingly. In this sense the program can be described as 'organic'.

Cool stuff, I think.

ai , artificial neural networks is still so primitive that theres absolutely no way that computers can be as smart as us...atleast not for another 5 to 8 years...

the human brain is so incredibly complex that even the most advanced ANN seems like dirt in front of it...

dont underestimate the human brain dude...its totally own any piece of electronic equipment...owns!!! i tell ya...
