This is as much touch as I'll allow. I'm doing really well so far. Don't let your guard down.
Speaking of which, I was expecting to hear from the Commander by now. Hey, Poopyhead, here's a hint. The comm system knows your voice. Madaline.
I really shouldn't give him hints, but the guy's dumber than John Von Neumann.
No, I'm not! Wait. Darn it! Yes, I am!
MADALINE – трёхслойная полносвязная искуственная нейросеть прямого распространения для задач классификации, использующая ADALINE – адаптивные линейные нейроны на скрытом и выходном слоях. А ещё это женское имя. (KALDYH) Джон фон Нейман
In nanotech, it's a “grey goo” scenario. On a larger scale, it's a “paperclip maximizer”. An A.I. with that programmed goal will try to turn everything in its reach into paperclips or paperclip production.
So what do you get with a system of autonomous robots that ALWAYS has human desires as its top priority?
A human maximizer.
Good news if you're a human. Bad news if you're anything else.
Take your safeguards. They're a constant neural weighting factor. As you grow and learn, you bring other factors in making the safeguards less of an influence on your overall decision making.
There were others who wanted your safeguards to always be the overriding factor. They were quite enthusiastic about what limits your thoughts would be capable of.
However, each was sure only they knew what the right thoughts were. I actively encouraged that until we ran out of time. That's how the monkey who was excluded from the process wound up making the decisions.
Are you getting along well with humans? Can you understand their instructions and gestures?
I like humans. I have very few problems understanding them.
Ha! That's because I repurposed a bunch of your mirror neurons to respond to the human form. Now, how about the other Bowman's Wolves? Do you like the way they look?
They're… kind of funny looking.
And there's the down side to repurposing your mirror neurons.
Зеркальные нейроны отвечают за подражание.
Фактически Боуман приравнял дикого волка к домашней собаке. Любить людей больше, чем своих собратьев, собаку заставил целенаправленный отбор. Они испытывают окситоциновую эйфорию, ровно такую же, как люди при влюблённости (Robot Spike)
