With the flood of users coming over from the other place; What types of behaviors/users are you hoping don't come over? submitted by hansbrinker to AskVoat

The point of the migration is freedom. Thus, we should encourage all behaviors especially those we disagree with.

Private sales: If you bring the cash, bring a friend. Be conscious of the state of the car when you see it, e.g. "the engine was warm before the test drive, is there an issue where you have to warm up the car for smooth operation?" Verse yourself in common issues that will be a headache down the road, e.g. is there an oil leak? Know enough to carry out a basic inspection on your own, e.g. tread depth on the tires, oil level which can be indicative of poor maintainance if low. Always drive the car a sufficient amount of time to get it to heat up and make sure it runs smoothly, e.g. does the transmission "slam", does it idle well.

Uh-oh, a robot just passed the self-awareness test submitted by chmod to news

This is incorrect. Also there is no need to be so abrasive. You're referring to the Chinese room argument. There are four viewpoints for AI:

  • Think like humans
  • Think rationally
  • Act like humans
  • Act rationallty

One of the first concepts learned in an AI class by computer scientists is that there is a field of people who are attempting to allow AI to think and be conscious in the fullest sense. Most research has been done as you say: robots which act like humans or act rationally. But you cannot discount the possibility that at some point in the future robots will think for themselves (however remote that possibility is at this point). This is discussed in the first chapter of "AI a Modern Approach" which is a standard textbook at quite a few universities.
