But even with the human brain there is a big difference in how we learn and how emotions are created. Majority of our emotions are created by electro-chemical reactions, something this robot brain wouldn't have.
For now there's a big difference, I'm not saying that today we can build a real artificial brain. But later in the late future they will. What is an electro-chimical reactions anyway? It's just 2 or more neuron cells connected to each other, communicated to each other. For what? To send information from one cell to another cell. Robots don't need a biological connector and storage, all they need is some kind of metal storage (like a RAM or hard drive of a computer) and a cable to send information.

The main reason human slaves would rebel is because of emotions or pain. Human slave muscles ache, their hands and feet hurt, they don't get much sleep or food which makes them angry and sad. Which leads to rebelling, which might make their lives better.

Now a robot that is just designed to learn basic things on its own is unlikely to rebel. It feels no pain, has no memories outside its work (nothing to miss). And it's not like these robots would be sitting around watching TV wishing of a better life, they are still pretty much a machine. in a working area that has the potential to learn information instead of having to be re-programmed all the time.

The reason robots always flip out in movies is because it's entertaining.
For now they don't have emotions, but taking in consideration that it's possible, it's good to prevent it in the first place. Who knows what will go wrong when a robot "decide on its own", with or without orders.

There you go: http://www.dailymail...spank-them.html

Until the day a robot can feel jealous and sad when you treat one robot better than another, it will decide on its own to go to its room or destroy something in the house just for a laugh.


Everything seems to be interesting until they put the word "military" in a sentence.

DARPA seem obsessed with creating killer military robots. What concerns me is whose going to take responsibility if the programming goes wrong and a robot ends up killing innocent civilians. The perfect opportunity to get away with murder.
or a perfect way to become Immortal the one who takes responsibility will be remembered for thousends of years Example like now we study Roman History, in the future they study this time :P

Who will/can remember when the robots erase all humans? Oh, maybe some robots will remember him as their creator like God. :)

  • Open your mind to new ideas. There can be something else in play.

The whole robot topic always gets complicated.

But back to the topic at hand:
This topic is just about them basically developing brains...Probably to house the AIs.

And as mentioned in this forum topic: http://www.unexplain...howtopic=253662
They literally got the brains, now they just got to program them...Then implement them.
