Re: What is Strong Artificial Intelligence and how close are we to developing it? - Research Round 2

Interesting, I admittedly dont know much about robotics but you explained the idea of conciousness within a robotic mind extremely well, as well as the loose definition of what exactly is intelligence. The thing here is, couldnt it be argued that due to robots, being robotic, that their level of conciousness and understanding would forever be different from ours? Even though we created them they are not us. It would be like raising a human as an ape, sure we are relatives in the animal...

Hey Adithya, I just wanted to start by saying your project on robotics is super interesting. Keep up the good work! You chose a difficult comparison but I thought the way you related expectations to the reality of a situation to Erica's post on initial perceptions vs prolonged perception to be well stated. Nice!

Hi Adithya, This is a really cool concept you have! I'm flattered by how you've taken my research and somehow implemented it into your own desire to further study robotics, which seems to be your passion. To connect these ideas even further, we know that our initial fear response decreases after an extended period of time, but is still present. It is once you've familiarized a certain face, or have, on multiple occasions, enjoyed the presence of someone from a specific race that your...

Re: Is robotic prosthetics the way to go for lost limbs?

I glad that you are looking into a subject that many people don’t give much thought to. I know that you are taking about prosthetic replacements for lost limbs, organs, appendages but have you thought about the possibility to use that technology to enhance the human body not just use it as a replacement. This technology of improved body parts is usually glossed over because of its seemingly impossibility but I think you should look into it This is an article if you are interested ...

This is really cool! Did you think about maybe doing just one body part at a time, because I think prosthetic limbs, and prosthetic eyes are quite different. Maybe start out with one, and do the other one later on. Here is a website talking about what artificial limbs do, and how they help people. https://medlineplus.gov/artificiallimbs.html Whatever you choose to do, Good Luck!

Hi Tanner, Just wondering, are you implying that dystonia is treatable by prosthetics limbs? Or that those with a prosthetic limb who may be suffering from dystonia will lose function of that artificial limb? Injections to reduce muscle contractions or increase or decrease levels of neurotransmitters, physical therapy, and surgery that severs the nerves from the muscle are all options to treat dystonia. Perhaps with the advancements of technology, you could argue that artificial body parts...

Re: C3RR6: How Can I Create a Refined System For Robotic Movement?

Hey Adithya, In your next cycle, it would be interesting to take a look at the differences in complexity between the two designs. From off the top of my head, it would seem that you would have much more flexibility and freedom to program using a raspberry pi. Hopefully, you might come across some new abilities or design possibilities with this new platform.

Re: C3RR1: What Mechanical System Allows for Refined Movement in Robots?

Hi Jessica, Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of using the Raspberry Pi is that a Bluetooth version does not exist. However, there is a way to control a robot with a Raspberry Pi and a Bluetooth module but it requires another micro-controller. Basically, since the Raspberry Pi is basically a computer, I can setup a Bluetooth module made for the Pi and link both of them to be able to control it from the Pi. On the actual robot, I would need another micro-controller, for example the Arduino...

Hey Adithya, I like your idea of having wheels on your robot and comparing them to legs because in my opinion wheels would be more practical and easier, but I don't know for sure. I remember when I was younger and in the toy stores they had toy robots with legs and when they walked, it looked very unnatural and also had very harsh movements. I don't really know much about robots but I think your research is going to be very compelling! Here are some links about robots on wheels and legs.

Hi Rhea, nice thought! I like your discussion on AI, it sounds very wonderful and all of your ideas represent in a logical way.

Great insight, I believe the problem is that many people simply fear what they dont know, as well as there are many misconceptions out there. I have a question for you that ties into the "morally align robots". Is there any truth towards the "Three Laws of Robotics"? After all we see it all the time in movies and video games.

Re: What is Strong Artificial Intelligence and how close are we to developing it? - Research Round 4

If they are going to "teach" AI morals, would it be possible to install a program that acts as a firewall for any dangerous action? So that even if it decides to go against its morals (maybe because it believes it's doing good, for example, destroying our leaders and enslaving us because we are ultimately destroying ourselves), it won't be able to physically carry out the action(like a distinct separation between its mind and body). What are the fail-safes that are or will be developed?

Re: What is Strong Artificial Intelligence and how close are we to developing it? - Research Round 4

As AI becomes more and more human, how does this effect the idea of transhumanism? Will our perception of humanity change by the time AI becomes ethical? It might be a radical idea now, but it might be an interesting opportunity to look at how AI could replace humans or we could create "human" AI. This would give you insight into how artificial morality and learning could work in the future.

Hey Adithya, You have done some extensive research. I was wondering, will you be going into Neuroscience as well to see how close the AI is to the human brain? Because in order to create a strong AI it will need to think like a human( that is a very scary thought!).
