Intriguing, but at the same time upsetting. Not only does this not make sense, I don't understand how the cells could connect and form into a brain,
how the brain would be linked, how the brain would properly interface, how it understood what it was supposed to do, why it keeps the plane in the
air... I just don't get it. If I saw this in a movie, I would be uninterested as I would deem such a thing too unlikely to be sufficiently
Puting all that aside, it bothers me that the brain is consious, aware and shows INTEREST in the simulation. It is alive and probably has some sense
of emotions considering the interest. It doesn't get to see, hear, touch, move, do things, make friends..all it can do is play the same game over and
That's not AI controlling that imaginary aircraft, that is a living being!
Besides, I think the reasoning behind the toying, or as they call it "research," is rediculous. It's entirely un-neccesary. We don't need our UAVs
to be concoius, aware, alive. An AI will do fine, or a controller from the groud. I thought the whole point in UAVs was to preserve life, not have
people killed by sending actual entities into combat. That is the ultimate goal, right? The UAV would be a living entity if they did that.
This is horrible and it is DANGEROUS. What happens when the bio-mechanical entity learns how it was created and that there is so much more to life
than flying an aircraft? What then? Do you think it will just ask us questions so that it can better understand what we are capable of? No, of course
not. It will wait until it can attack us, then destroy itself. That's what I would do. Revenge then suicide. I can only imagine how low the quality
of life is for the "rat brain" which flies the F-22 Raptor simulation.
We should put the individual behind the computer coded stick out of its misery before it is informed enough to put US out of its misery.
The arrogance of man is nigh, look at what we have done. This is far worse than slavery or genocide. This is an unspeakable evil which we could never
imagine what it is truely like to be on the recieving end of this "experiment."
I cannot believe this has been done. To clone a person is illegal, but to create a brain and link it up with a computer but give this brain no body is
not? Do we not value freedom?? Do we not see the injustice???
