Hot Robot At SXSW Says She Wants To Destroy Humans lol (Around 2:00 mark)
It's amazing how far we've come with human-like robots.
They've really dropped the ball on computerized speech though. That robot sounds like the text to speech generators I played with 15 years ago.
Also, its kinda creepy having the back of its head open like that...
The rate of progress technologically the last 100+ years has been astounding and is still increasing in speed. I read somewhere we learn more in a day now than we did in thousands of years in the past.
What most don't realize is the current state of technology is 30 years ahead of what is commercially available today. If it were all to be released en masse.. the learning curve would be crippling.
Not to mention the loss of 80% of the current jobs. That's going to be huge.
I believe they're already testing just giving come citizens a "basic income" to prepare for what's coming.
One of the leading theories about the natural of our reality is that we are currently living inside a post-singularity simulation. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/oct/11/simulated-world-elon-musk-the-matrix
I try not to think about this too much. NVM. I love thinking about this stuff. I think I just found a video to procrastinate writing my current pnr wip.
“It’s also a lot of hubris to think we would be what ended up being simulated.”
I love this quote! (out of the article above.)
Maybe we didn't. Maybe we are glitches, bugs in the machine.
But of course the entire universe was created simply to bring about me. I just don't understand why this game isn't more fun. I want my staff of epicness.
You are the reason. Talk about the definition of Gullible!
Have you never had your Sim play a video game while playing The Sims video game yourself? lol
Gah. HAVE TO CLICK. UNABLE TO RESIST!
Hast thou cast some spell upon this thread?
Uh oh. It's not working for me. Can someone else try?
I'm not sure what it is supposed to look like to me since I'm the one that posted it. Not sure if I did it right or not.
It looks right to me. Let me check real quick.
If there are simulations inside of simulations, we can all just get deleted.
But, from the perspective of my own consciousness, the only thing I can prove is that I exist. So it is all about me.
Okay... it looks like mods are locked out? Or it might be user group permission error. I'll double-check them later. Thanks, @WildAzazel !
What does that mean? Wait... am I mod? Do I have modpower? oooohhh!!!
I'm calling this a win. Gains one staff of epicness.
Haha I meant you can't click the Charge to Read button if you're a mod or if you're the person who posted it.
I'm off for a few hours, but I'll check it when I get back. (Taking Oma to dinner...)
Don't break the place too bad while I'm gone lol
