Robot ‘Natural Selection’ Recombines Into Something Totally New

Scientists in a fascinating field known as evolutionary robotics are trying to get machines to adapt to the world, and eventually to reproduce on their own, just like biological organisms. As in, someday two robots that are particularly well-adapted to a certain environment could combine their genes (OK, code) to produce a 3D-printed baby robot combining the strengths of its two parents.

If the approach works, it could lead to robots that design themselves, building beautifully adapted morphologies and behaviors that a human engineer could never dream up.

This right here could be what does mankind in. Many great minds have warned us about it. Sci-Fi has warned us about it. Science still pushes on toward this goal.

AI evolving and creating offspring programs that evolve, is right around the corner. All it is going to take is that one big breakthrough, if it hasn't happened already, and humans are no longer at the top of the food chain.

Exactly how "The Matrix" originated!

code coded to make code. sounds redundant, the gift of life and free will, sounds much more interesting.

I am sure it will sounds more interesting to the code made by code, made by code, made by code also

It's just a very sophisticated tool. If you want to be worried look at what DARPA is doing.

That’s all the physical aspects of life is anyway, dna code coded to reproduce more dna code. At least with the natural code it programmed to self destruct at some point so that’s it offspring can thrive.

Being the wrong thing to do, being the unhealthy thing to do, being the deadly thing to do, has never stopped someone from doing it.

"Code coded to make code. sounds redundant"

Well, that's how our RNA/DNA kind of functions.

"the gift of life and free will, sounds much more interesting."

We are only really just beginning to understand what constitutes life, as to free will, well that's debatable really.

Is there a clear goal to these motivations? Like for example - will they make life better?

Or is it like - lets see what happens?
