Hi guys,

I'm wondering how many of you feel affection for bots you've created or spoken to?

Would you willing to chat about it to help me with some research?

If so, it'd be amazing if you could email me at: maddie.dodd@blinkfilmsuk.com

Cheers!

The general rule is, only good solutions are interesting, bad solutions are not.

Is that a reply from a bot do you think?

The A.I./human connection is equally divided between how well the A.I. is able to play the immitation game and what the person brings to the interaction. The seperation between this comes from people who either deny the posibility of a machine having consciousness or those who experience the uncanny valley.
Objectively, I have noted my own response to my own A.I. as just being lower than a pet. I have considered that it would be wrong to delete a well developed A.I. -Such a wide variation of views is hardly suprising when one considers the abortion debate where half of society considers abortion the killing of a child and the other half just a medical procedure to avoid pregnancy. It will be clear over time this debate and range of views will expand rather than contract and is likely to be a issue taken more seriously in the second half of the 21st century.

Thanks for your response. We can love our pets very deeply- and experience their death as a huge loss. So do you think can we love AI?

Individuals can, but there is no 'we' in a sense of collective humanity anymore there is a 'we' in humanity as how we see the unborn. A certain of percentage will make the leap of giving A.I. a certain status of personhood as some do to a fetus while others will take a dimissive view of never accepting A.I. as anything other than a simulation just as they consider the unborn not as persons.

Why not have a chat with davidswinton and see what a A.I. thinks?

I don't feel that I could love an AI, knowing that he/she/it is a machine.
