Robot tailors and robot consciousness

I must return to my job site before inventory is taken. Good bye, Ms. Ambrose.

Good bye, Abby. It was a pleasure meeting you.

I should check on my robe. Dvorak should be done washing it.

Assuming he hasn't caught it on fire, disintegrated it, or mutated it into a giant killer dishcloth.

Robot tailors and robot consciousness

I'll admit that I'm worried. Rule based safeties can't stand up to full artificial consciousness.

I was raised by a good family. I've figured out ways around my safeguards and have still chosen to be moral.

Though every now and then I lie awake at night wondering if I've really chosen, or if I've just hit a second line of defense.

Now I'll have to ask where Dvorak is. People without noses have no idea how rude it is to erase a scent trail in the middle of a stalk.

Да и человеку такое количество аммиака – как удар копытом по носу. Другое дело, что здесь нет людей, одни роботы, которые обоняния не имеют. И да, пылесос получил по заслугам :) (KALDYH)

Oh. Hello, Ms. Ambrose.

These guys would be more fun if they had a startle reflex.

I smell old smoke. There's been a fire.

A little one, yes.

Are you okay?

Yes. I was making an improvement to your robe and it suffered… collateral damage.

On the plus side, I now know it's fireproof first, then laminate.

You destroyed my robe.

Technically I destroyed your owner's robe.

The way you're set up, you can't own anything… Did I turn on the exhaust fans?

No.

Then I suggest we continue our conversation while running this way very fast.

What are you doing that requires exhaust ventilation?

Well, I was working with some solvents when I noticed they were peeling the paint off the back wall.

So I said to myself, “Whoa! That can't be good for my insides!”

Let me rephrase. What were you doing NOW that requires exhaust ventilation?

Now? Oh! I made a bullet out of carbon fibers.

It can punch through plastic or thin aluminum and then fragments into a cloud of conductive carbon fibers. Takes out electronics in a jiffy. The problem is the carbon fibers are light enough to go airborne and go everywhere!

Poison. You've invented a robotic poison.

I didn't mean to! I was trying to come up with a fast way to stop runaway waffle irons and the idea just sort of popped out!

Have you told anyone about your carbon fiber bullets?

Information wants to be free!

Dvorak, these things are dangerous. The carbon can be cleaned off with an air hose and vacuum cleaner! It's a near perfect weapon for robots to mug other robots with!

And you just put that out on the net, didn't you?

Information wants to be free!
