Freefall 1461



You can't just have enforcers. Police don't exist in a vacuum.

You need laws. Courts. Rights for the accused.

Legal counsel.

If it ever gets out that I had a hand in the creation of robot lawyers, the humans will let my species go extinct for sure.

COG построен в M.I.T. как образец объединения различных аспектов ИИ на простой основе



Excuse me, we have owners. Legally we're property.

Well, then these rules would be for robots that don't have owners.

Robots who have bought themselves from the scrap yard. Robots whose owners have gone bankrupt or died. Even a few robots whose owners set them free.

Are they free to seek out a new owner?

Unfortunately, yes. But if they're only allowed to make decisions I agree with, they're not really free, are they?

While this all sounds nice, there are no provisions for an A.I. to own itself.

Things change.

Laws aren't always proactive. A lot of times the law changes to make legal what people are already doing.

I have seen politicians wait to see which way the wind is blowing before making a commitment.

Even in culture wars, modern leaders prefer to stay away from the lines until the shooting is over.

That time already? Ms. Ambrose, we've got to go. See you next Sunday?

I'll try.

Things are happening here very fast. Maybe things should be slowed down a bit? Tested to see if they're safe before proceeding?

If you come up with a good test idea, let us know.

I would not have expected an intelligent wolf to be so… cautious.

Qwerty, it's the ones with sharp teeth who aren't cautious that you need to worry about.

I've never been a big believer in forced retirement.

Commnet, please locate Ms. Florence Ambrose, Bowman's Wolf.


We go to the effort of communicating audibly. You'd think that organics would at least implant transponders in return.

Dead End

It's not the delay I mind, it's the embarrassing noises I make when I back up.




Эти роботы-рабочие из Аниматрицы, “Второе возрождение”. Написана Энди и Ларри Вачовски и снята Mahiro Maeda. Вот бы ещё вторая и третья часть Матрицы были так же хорошо написаны, как и эта. 2003

It's a shame most of these robots are indoor models. They don't appreciate water, they fear it.

They never go outside to watch a storm form, to see the first drops of rain begin to fall, or to fly up and chase lightning through to the clouds.

Like most fliers, I've taken my share of lightning strikes. Though as far as food humor goes, the organic's pie in the face is still funnier.

Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? был коротким анимационным сериалом на Cartoon Network. Выходил в эфир с 2002 по 2004. В первом сезоне голос Робота Джонса(Robot Jones) синтезировался компьютером Макинтош.
