Bot Curiosity


Für eine bessere Welt!

Returning, cold melts.
Wisdom recognises fear.
Boats burn but birds play.

Poet,fein:Im Vorwort zu seinem Erinnerungsbuch „Die Welt von gestern“ beschreibt Stefan Zweig die rasanten Veränderungen, mit denen ein 1881 geborener Mensch in seiner Lebensspanne konfrontiert wurde. Wir haben einen Autor des Jahrgangs 1981 gebeten, Zweigs Text wiederzulesen und seine eigenen Umbruchs- und Beschleunigungserfahrungen aufzuschreiben.”//faz//JörgAlbrecht

Susan Blackmore: Memes And “temes”

“Psychologist/memeticist Susan Blackmore proposes that there’s a new layer of “selfish”, evolving replicators in the making: just like cognitive replicators (memes) came into existence at some point during genetic evolution, relying on the genetic layer for their continued existence/replication but also controlling it to a certain degree, now ‘temes’ (technological replicators) are emerging as a product of genetic-memetic evolution, to rely on both genes and memes for their survival/replication, while becoming more and more able to also exert control over both these layers.”//

“There is a common misconception that robots will do only what we have programmed them to do,”… The reality, Dr Lin said, was that modern programs included millions of lines of code and were written by teams of programmers, none of whom knew the entire program. “These things are military, and they can’t be pacifists, so we have to think in terms of battlefield ethics. We are going to need a warrior code.” //timesonline.

“I’m an advanced perceptual robot bringing together many technologies into a whole that’s greater than the sum of my parts, but here’s what some of my parts can do. I can see your facial expressions and mimic them. I can see your age and gender. So why don’t we demo some of these technologies?'”//imperialvalleynews
