Humans feeling emotions about objects.
One day in the (not so distant?) future, people will want to marry virtual people, robots, etc...the AI will be so great and its learning potential so
adaptive that it may be quite difficult to tell apart from a real person, with the exception that they may at times make a bit too much sense, do
things too well, etc.
Will literally have to program in purposeful mistakes just to convince us of their "humanity"....also a good way to learn is to mess up a few
I wonder though...will there be an issue with it...a person marrying an avatar or robot that is. We have so far avoided discussing any major
philosophical topics as a society, such as what is a "person", Who defines what has consciousness and sense of self, etc.
I think as we step down those roads of conversation, we show our irrational and egotistical side..so much so that we even recognize it as we state
Anyhow, yes...watch Japan..they seem ahead of the world in these regards.
I do however wish they would trend towards realism verses wonky anime style.
