Re: Arising_uk's school philosophy

Try look at this one: I have a brilliant doctor friend, who uncritically told me a story he heard in a auditorium filled with fellow doctors at Panum (danish educational institute ..or something) 2 garbage men, who had been in the buisness for 2 decades, who had sufferd foul odeurs through out thei...

Re: Arising_uk's school philosophy

Explain, please. In school you only learn calculative and memorizing things, not to question information, ask one self or others if there's more to it than what seems, etc etc, therefore with philosophy ones metal skills will increase. It's on par with what computers can do on low lvl, with abstrac...

Re: Rights

The legal voice that ruled against me is a voice that is unfair (or so I contend). If I am lying I will go to the law for protection. If I am telling the truth, I will not. I will not. What does that tell you? This tells me that in your opinion you don’t need the protection of the law, because you ...

Re: ~ Our Future Robot Overlords? ~

Given the current state of AI, it is possible that a robotic program could be written with instructions for building and programming a second robot. The original robot can look for ways to enhance its program in the next robot. Eventually, in theory, a robot could be built that attains and exceeds a...

Re: Mind-reading robot

This could be really big. I'd like to be certain that CSAIL/MIT cannot be mistaken about a robotic feedback system that can read human thoughts. “Our robots may have eyes, but it’s the embedded cameras that give them their vision. With no additional hardware, software or integration costs, the robot...

Re: Free will is real

We are all sure about the fact that thought precedes act and the fact that they are different. There is therefore a point in which there is neither thought nor act. Lets call this point the decision point. This point cannot be affected by thought because otherwise it is a part of chain of thought. ...

Re: To what extent do egocentric biases influence the information we trust?

Internal egocentric bias determines entirely what elements of the information we receive are trusted as truth. Take the hedonist, for example. It is a pleasure to have one’s beliefs affirmed, and a bit of a pain to be debunked. Encountering what confirms one’s bias, regarding self or anything else, ...

Re: Could a Robot be Conscious?

Both the brain and the robot process information. The end results for the brain are senses. The end result for the robot are definitions. Humans get to definitions not through processing but by perceiving the meaning of something. In other words it is not the brain that perceives but consciousness....

Re: Could a Robot be Conscious?

How does the robot know that the apple is sweet. It has no experience with sweet. It says the apple is sweet because it looks up the description of apples. The robot would sense sweetness by chemically testing the apple for sweet substances, e.g. glucose. But this still leaves the problem of how th...
