Completely agree, but this is simply the beginning, just an experiment if somewhat complex and costly.
It won't be able to think but simply run code in a very specific manner, just like any other computer.
weak/false AI has arrived and it´s only a matter of time until someone leverages it onto a level to create true artificial intelligence and at that point, I hope if there is a god, he will have mercy on our souls.
Not because we created something that could be considered "life" and playing god but for creating a competetive, extremly fast thinking and decentralized intelligence that could wipe us out in so many ways, we´re not even aware off yet. By intent or not..
Plant´s for example do not posses organs or neurons or eyes, yet the breath, can see and they can count, among other things.

I am extremely interested in whatever results you obtain. Please post them!
I will disagree on that point. As long as we rely on the current method of digital processing through a core, true AI is not possible. We will have created nothing more than a simulation of true AI.
I have many projects running on parallel all the time. Sometimes I need a short break from all that and those are the periods I am most active on ATS.
I mean the advancements in science that ultimately will lead us to true AI, maybe, someday, or not.
If we ever accomplish that, we need to face the reality that we need to adress rights to "it"/"them". And with the potential behind what we brought to life/consciousness, we need to adress this problem before we actually do it.
It´s just to dangerous, not only to ourselfes but the whole environment. We as the current top predator and what we do, we need to get more responsible. We certainly don´t behave like a god would, by far not.
So this all leaves me with mixed feelings. I probably won´t be alive when this happens but my descendats, will.
Certainly if we create something that could be considered life, we are then responsible for it. But what rights should it have? Equal to its creators? I am not certain of that; we don't have rights equal to God's, nor should we have IMO.
I produced two highly intelligent children with solid moral values. I feel secure they will do something similar. When that day of reckoning finally comes, I have done my part to advance the proper decision, whatever that decision turns out to be. I can do no more. That is the will of MY Creator.
I think we are now approaching the question, what is God, what defines God
I think the more connected we are to nature, the closer we are to what I see as god.
I don´t judge anyones believe or disbelieve. What I find sad is that some atheists think they are somehow superior to people that believe in god, let alone have faith. They deem people like me as stupid and narrow minded but they don´t see the hypocrisy in it.
I´ve read in a book somewhere that we parents are seen as Gods. Because our little offspring has the impression that we know how the world works and that we have an answer to everything.

Life the universe, reality, and the whole shebang, may very well be a simulation.
A simulation of a simulation of a simulation etc.
Should the holographic principle turn out to hold any weight.
The terms we use to describe what we assume constitutes life are still being defined.
But this is simply an experiment, it's not designed to simulate anything other than neural network architecture.
