So, basically some people have created an AI alogorithm based on a person's text messages, social media pages, etc. that allows a virtual version of that person to supercede physical death.

Would you do that?

I can see some value in doing that as an expert in certain fields.

It would be pointless from my own perspective - it would be a separate unlinked instance of me.

In English, it would be a new person or a new emulation of a person.

The only way I'd really benefit is if I could create one on my own computer and use it as partner and assistant at work.


I am fairly certain that a simple decision tree algorithm weighed by my previous choices has nothing to do with concepts such as life and sentience.

I've said it before, just because someone can program a chatbot and even if that chatbot could pass Turing test doesn't mean that it's a living or sentient thing.

It is just a computer program. It doesn't feel or think. It is just a mechanical machine executing an algorithm. It doesn't feel pain. It is just an emulation of the kind of response that a real living thing would produce in pain.

Essentially, the focus is not on actually creating a sentient being but on imitating the output of sentient beings. There's a vast difference. You can literally make a crankshaft device that produces behavior that is really, really close to that of a living being's output.

Me too. In fact, this the likeness AI posting now because the original couldn't stand reading Pammy's posts.

Yes. I could then keep Knuck and Pammy under my jackboot for eternity.

Does it use terms like "knyghte" and "bacheler"? Does it command "host of waerryeours"?
