The thread wasn't about my two cents.
It saddens me when people have a hard time realizing the infinite potential that lies within the depths of the human mind.
In my humble opinion science is incapable of quantifying the totality of the human experience.
I can tell you that more than half of the people here believe those definitions to be very limited. They are products of the babies of the human
family = Western Society. If science is based off of observation, the majority of the worlds cultures speak adamantly about these particular subjects
with much more depth and offering a more solid and accurate definition.
So, in a nutshell
Robots and people who believe they have the potential to out do humans are the product of people who have not had a chance to grasp the whole idea of
the human experience. The blue pill people who needed to invent them in the first place lol. There is a whole universe "beyond what you can taste,
touch, feel,....." and you have access to that. Science can not measure it therefore it doesn't exist right? Or is it possible that it lacks the
instrumentation because it is built off of observation which is not "the entire story".
If watson can do those things and many more twice as fast. The real point of the thread is he should have solved the worlds issues in less than a
year. For example we know how aids works, so he should be able to use that data to 'give birth' to a completely new idea/concept. He has the
ability to analyze and diagnose people as well as offer 'treatments' not cures.
Current and future robots will not ever be able to dream because look at how you asked the question, with a hair of uncertainty. That single strand,
the .1 left out of the 99.9 is the thread to an even bigger world that could never be properly understood, 'again'.
what is imagination? What exactly is a dream?
I imagine a robot would answer it the same way you did. With no feeling and completely ignoring the splendor of the human experience.
I hope that made sense.
