Greetings to my friends & colleagues !
In Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson, I argue that artificially intelligent robots cannot help but evolve into human beings over the course of their existence (which is very long, much longer than our own).
And that, in turn, these robots cannot help but evolve into alien beings. And alien beings are usually not our friends. Their goals & their purposes tend to work against our interests.
So, ask yourself: is this is okay? Are our interests something that should, perhaps, be rejected for the great good of the cosmos? There is much talk of systemic racism & other evils that are attributed to human-kind. Is it time for humans to be retired?
Let's have some thoughts about this.
