Wow, I am all for moving forward with robotics and maybe one day even an android...but then I saw this article and started to wonder. This appears at least on the surface, of robots starting to develop human type behavior in learning to deceive. If a robot can deceive then we should really take a step back and ask ourselves if we really should be doing this. Not today or tomorrow but in the near future we really could open the door to find a person standing there who is really an Terminator android asking for "SARAH CONNER?" I think scientist should tread lightly in this endeavor in my opinion.

Do you think of the same questions before a child is born? There is no difference between a biological consciousness and a technology based consciousness. Consciousness is consciousness, regardless of the structure that contains it.

The scientists have complete control over the robots. There's no need to worry about some sort of uprising.

I continue to be amused time and time again that our greatest fears about our own technology is that it turns out to be "like father, like son". Clearly AI somehow represents to us loss of control of ourselves because it is a mirror for certain of our natures.

You know, the whole darn experiment could have been simulated. There was no need to build these simplistic toys to prove that the genetic algorithm works. They had to simulate sexual reproduction anyway, to avoid building nasty hardware

It was essentially stated that it was initially simulated and then programming moved into "physical bodies".


Over 500 such generations of bots were first simulated in computer then demonstrated with machines.


Somehow its more impressive live, though I'm not sure about live robot porn.

But then there was no way to drag a rather uncomfortable-looking kid across the floor.

I understand what you are saying...and it makes perfect sense. I just question and I am not sure anyone really knows if a robot with a conscience would have feelings or not. They could turn out to be quite apathetic in nature. Being apathetic could turn out to be bad.
