The Larch: Do we have robots that are smart as cats yet? How can we tell that they're as smart as a cat? Do they sit around all day licking their own butts? Do they chase laser pointers? Do they run away and hide after tthey've knocked something off the table?

The problem with AI isn't how smart it will be. The problem with AI is how damned stupid it will turn out to be.


Cats aren't dumb. Hygiene is more important to them than the average farker, everyone has to chase that mysterious light. If you catch it you win eternal life, or you get to eat it. Loud noises startle me :( I mean, cats... they startle cats.

I'm not a cat.

dittybopper: Muta: Over several million years of evolution, modern humans have already outcompeted several primates and other human species, such as Denisovans, hobbitlike creatures dubbed Homo floresiensis, and Neanderthals

Having a bunch of little hobbits running around would have been cool.  We suck.

No, we don't suck.  We're very, very, *VERY* good at what we do.  That's how we've come to dominate the planet.

Ya know, FARK does its part to prevent this sort of catastrophe.  At the bottom of the page is a button that says, "Report a bug".

So, do it, ok?

Sure we could do something about it. We'd make a reality TV show out of our apocalypse.
