Does it need coffee?

Stupid website won't let you look at it without setting a cookie

And now it is leaving Earth for no raisin!

Like putting an awful bright yellow bar on the side of your text that makes it nearly impossible for me to read without getting a headache?

SPAUN: "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

Scientist: "I think so SPAUN, but how will we get a pair of Abe Vigoda's pants?"

Does it actually believe that the stripper likes it?!?!

Of course it does. It was built by humans.

That website looks like the year 1995 pinched a loaf on my monitor.

Holy crap you guys weren't kidding, its like nickelodeon's set designers vandalized their CSS files.

But can it find Sarah Connor?

Great, an AI that's exactly as dumb as your average human, but without the physical interface to gate the speed at which they can post comments online.

And based on their brains.

It clicks on more than one RugbyJock entry?

It takes an hour for the supercomputer to run one second of this virtual "brain", which is only 1/40,000 as complex as a human brain.

If Moore's law continued indefinitely*, it would be 66 years before the world had a supercomputer powerful enough to simulate a human brain in realtime to this level of fidelity.

Sorry, Singularity fans. You'll be dead long before you get to upload your mind. Ah, Schadenfreude...

*It probably won't for electrical computing. Eventually we're going to need quantum computers if we want the same size box to keep increasing in power.

It gets drunk and then hits on/sleeps with fat chicks at the bar?

They should hook it up to Usenet to learn about the cyber world. Let it lurk 6 months, then turn posting on.

The Monte Hall effect?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Does it actually believe that the stripper likes it?!?!


It must delude itself, I don't see how you could rub up against a computer enough that it doesn't care.

Link to similar piece at marginally less annoying site.

Does it's ID do stupid things that it's Ego and Super Ego need to clean up after???


Friggin' ID gets me in trouble every time.

That's actually starting to get a bit scary. Sure, it's got a factor of 40,000 fewer neurons, but massively parallel computing will take care of that eventually even if Moore's law does start to break down. Once we've got a brain with an equivalent number of neurons, even if it does only run at a significant time dilation factor, is it alive? Do we have a right to simply flick it on and off, or reset it, or use it for experiments? If it's functionally a simulation of a human brain, just in bits and bytes instead of cell membranes and potentials, does it have the same rights as a human? Are we obligated to free it? This is edging into very deep water, here. I can't decide whether it's more scary or exciting.

Christians will finally have a use in science. They can turn of sentient machines without feeling bad.

The simulated brain begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

No worries, first the military has to automate all it's aircraft. Then be upgraded with a "new" type of chip that makes them super efficient. Followed by the automation of the defense systems and linked to a central monitoring computer. What are the odds of that happening.....

/According to the old soviet "strike maps" I'd be wiped out in the first assault anyway....so meh
