Well the the first 10 episodes of BattleStar Galactica Season 4 (a great Sci-fi show) have been aired, now the next season for (the probably-hopefully) explosive ending…
Surfing around the web i found out, that the story (and particular the last episode) is very similar to a novel written by Isaac Asimov , i am not going to tell you the name of that book, beacouse frankly if u go search for it, it could spoil you the story of BSG, the similarities are far too much to be just a coincidence, i hope it’s just a coincidence otherwise i basically knows how it ends the sci-fi drama..
Talking back to Asimov, BSG start with the premises that AI-Robots rebels their creators, then i remembered the laws of robotics…
1 – A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2 – A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3 – A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
I tried to translate this laws in pseudo-code (the image on top), did i made a good job or the cylons will rebel with that buggy code?
Let’s make some hypothesis, we made AI-Robots(Cylons) and implant in their neural network a chip containing the code of the robotic laws, how can they rebels? Maybe there is a bug in the code? Some chip goes defective in some model? Some madman remove deliberately the chips in some models?
The big question is do we need Machines to make works? Yes. Do we need this machines to have advanced artificial intelligence? Here is your Answer (click)
Hey i hope u have found entertaining this reading. cya.No Comments »
