How can a computer mirror a brain when we dont know how 95% of the brain works?

And specially when we don't even know what gives our brain our human ''power''/''capacity'' to be self aware.

If this kind of ''machine'' can have moral values, then i'm sure i want it to be massively produced...i'll be looking forward to see it replace ''humans'' with no ethics at all...

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much of it can make you arrogant & egotistical.
Science would call me a Non-Conformist. Religion would call me a Heretic. I call myself a Freelancer.

Yeah! But let's appoint a team to decide who gets to remain living, and who gets replaced with machines. Oh, what fun this is! We're gods now!

Maybe we should call the Gods from Mt. Olympus to appoint this team :P

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Comical article really. They are fretting over whether we could be replaced by artifical intellligence when the artificial intelligence field is in complete shambles. I just read an article last year in a science publication in which they were talking about how scientists in the field are shocked that after all of this time they are not farther along, and really don't have any great insight as to how to get the ball down the field. But then his guy comes, talks a bit, and everyone is afraid of skynet. Whatever. Perhaps he should actually accomplish something before we get worried.
