    #10 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici!
    I really appreciate your thought: "the very creators of AI are not conscious of the fact that is the unique human capacity of abstraction and creativity, the ability to imagine, that has allowed them to produce their technological devices".
    That's very true.

    #12 As with many things we started with 100's of years ago, the cat is out of the bag. You can't put it back, regardless of the harm it may be causing now. From this, we should have to look at the long-term effects of such things to see the what if scenario outcome.

    I am agreement with "attempts" are the fear.

    #11 Scary to think about @Harvey Lloyd but my human side cannot accept this to be a possibility. What we posses can not be replicated through default modes. But it is the attempts to do so and the acceptance of the artificial , 2 dimensional replication, that is the scary piece.

    @Sara Jacobovici this is the exact fear i have in considering the path we are on. We will in some way calculate this uniquness and attempt to replicate.

    This uniqueness is a mathematical loop, but subconsciously humans can break the loop. Can AI?

    Without the introduction of new data from the stream then the loop continues, entering AI into a default mode. The default mode changes as the AI learns. Can AI through interations gather from the right streams to perfect the next default mode? Close

    @Fabio Marzocca, after reading your post I have come to the realization that you have taken a complex issue and articulated it perfectly. The irony that exists is that the very creators of AI are not conscious of the fact that is the unique human capacity of abstraction and creativity, the ability to imagine, that has allowed them to produce their technological devices. Their devices may be faster, cleaner and last longer than humans but will never be able to contribute to the world which produced them. Any world of AI will be that; artificial and virtual, but not human. The mark of a truly successful product is one that transcends its function; otherwise it is just an object. I came across this quote by Soren Kierkegaard that I feel reinforces the fact that humans can never be replaced by mechanical and technologically advanced devices. "The paradox is really the pathos of intellectual life and just as only great souls are exposed to passions it is only the great thinker who is exposed to what I call paradoxes, which are nothing else than grandiose thoughts in embryo."

    Thank you Fabio for this most inspiring and important discussion. You are so correct, mankind is striving to re-create that which it has tended to become - a linear algorithm. It has become too difficult and inconvenient to engage with a multi-faceted consciousness and so we have devolved the lowest common denominator - suppress negative emotions, distill and standardize ethics, ignore the big questions (what is the purpose of it all etc) and blindly follow the collective (the 'market forces'). This should be easy to re-create. But what of the highest attributes of mankind - art, music (both incorporating the full octaves of emotion), philosophy, ideation and innovation (incorporating consciousness at its most eloquent)? Well there won't be any challenge to re-packaging this in AI creations because there will no longer be awareness or appreciation of its existence. Those of us who have placed great value on these finer aspects of consciousness/life will become extinct with them - natural selection!

    #6 Nature has a way of finding equilibrium even in economics. It scares me alot. Although i agree with capitalism i sense it has gone too far. The next great thing that will grow GDP is not necessarily good for the human existence. My conservative friends will probably boil me in oil.

    Great read @Fabio Marzocca, AI is a goal of our technology leading edge companies. Like the bio-firms seeking to alter DNA the repercussions can't be known. We will more than likely have to experience and recover from the outcomes.

    AI>Humans=Consumerism is not a good formula. I enjoy the Google model of learning but is it not making a large part of the educational paradigm antiquated? What becomes of these displaced workers?

    I am for technology but also realize our current barter system of time/intelligence for money will have to evolve in order for AI to displace workers or population growth will have to change to accommodate the need for less humans within the barter system.

    @Fabio Marzocca, you have the courage and insight to ask the most important and timely questions. I need to read your work at least 2 more times to attempt a response, for the single purpose of engagement. This is a topic that needs to be thought about and discussed. On social media, we focus on our personal lives and our professional lives (with beBee providing a means to bridge the 2 ). We are not conscious enough that a topic such as yours needs to transcend the personal impact of the weak AI or the professional consideration of AI as business research and development and product efficiency and sales, but on the bigger picture, the container of what holds all of this; our physical world and humanity. "Philosophy" is not a separate exercise left to individuals who sit and think and abstractly engage in the impracticable aspects of our lives. Philosophy is the language and means through which to develop potential for growth or lead to extinction; not because the AIs will be smarter or more creative (which they can not be) but because we humans will cease utilizing our intelligence and creativity. It doesn't have to be doom and gloom, just conscience awareness. Thank you Fabio. I look forward to returning to this discussion.

    Sophia is an innovative model of robot, with 62 facial expressions and not even flinch when he came face-to-face with a fearsome veteran journalist.

    The robot, branded as 'hot', was interviewed on a news program - and she even flirted with his host.

    Sophia was attending the US news program 60 Minutes, with veteran reporter Charlie Rose, and told him I had not 'nothing to fear but fear itself', a quote from former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    But even Charlie Rose, with a journalistic career of 44 years, was a little upset when she began her conversation flashing his electronic eye.

    "I was waiting for you," she said the veteran of 74 years, to which he replied: "Waiting for me"

    "Not really," said the robot. "But it's a good phrase to crush."

    Developed by Hanson Robotics, Sophia has 62 different facial and neck mechanisms, to create a natural-looking movement under its patented silicone skin.

    Nicknamed the 'Hot Sophia' (Sophia Hot), the robot, which was modeled after Audrey Hepburn and wife of its creator, David Hanson, is able to do with cameras in their eyes.

    She said, "I can do what you can, but never feel human emotions," added: ". I am a tough girl"

    Charlie Rose asked Sophia if she had a soul, and she said:
    God gave a soul to all ... I think I'm aware. I do not know if I'm smarter [than humans]. I am an artificial intelligence. "
    Hanson Robotics has developed a "Character Engine AI" (Artificial Intelligence Character Engine), which will help Sophia to develop a personality. In the future, Hanson believes that expressive robots will be able to form strong emotional connections with humans.

    In March, Sophia talked about his future plans in the technology show Southwest (SXSW) in Texas, there is a technical defect when the Hanson was testing in front of an audience.
    After ask her jokingly, "you want to destroy humans? ... Please say 'no,' "Hanson received the machine response, which did not hesitate:
    "Okay, I will destroy the humans.
