QuoteHow in the world can someone reverse engineer a human brain!?
QuoteWe can go so far, but yet we can't even reach to the end.
QuoteEventually one day that product or robot is going to turn on us and become useless or dangerous. :/
QuoteAnd yeah, there's a theory that the human brain is quantum entangled. Which means, in layman terms, that it has the potential to process information faster than anything we've ever seen before.Of course, computers may make humans look rather slow, but consider the fact that they're usually only repeating given instructions, instructions that are specifically stripped of anything unneeded.That's way easier than the human brain processing a few million different factors at a time, and trying to figure out what logic parts we should be using by parsing through frequencies and stored memories. We're actually incredibly fast when you consider that.

QuoteHow long do you think it takes a computer to "read" an image? In fact if we actually get so advanced with computers that we are able to develop a program that can "read", it will take a whole lot of time.

QuoteSolipsism (Latin: solus, alone + ipse, self) is the philosophical idea that "My mind is the only thing that I know exists." Solipsism is an epistemological or ontological position that knowledge of anything outside the mind is unjustified. The external world and other minds cannot be known and might not exist. In the history of philosophy, solipsism has served as a skeptical hypothesis.

People say that there can never be true A.I. because it will always lack emotion... but what is emotion? Is it not just a figment of homeostasis, a flux in our thoughts that causes us to react, a flag raised at the sight of a stimuli? In that context, do computers not already have emotions...?
