One of my long term goals is to become an engineer capable of program human emotions into robots.


What your speaking of has a name It's the singularity and is theoriesed to be when humans and robots become one or when robots get's feelings just like humans

I'm getting into artificial intelligence myself, so I understand what they're going for. I highly doubt that making an angry robot will make it a sentient world ruling dictator.

I, myself, am working on an AI that learns how to speak and gains personality from the user. It's based solely on associative memory (how we believe the human mind works). If you are angry with it all the time, it will be angry all the time. Talk to it like a drunken sailor, and it will eventually start swearing up a storm in every conversation. If you are perverted to it, it will eventually be perverted right back. It also has the ability to learn the language the user is speaking to it. No languages are pre-programmed in.


On a side note...
If there were to be an AI program that takes over the world, I want to be the one who programmed it!

too early to be thinking about, right now all A.I. is is sorcery. What do A.I. and sorcery have in common? They both don't exist, it seems silly to be talking about it right now. It's just science-fiction, that's where all those mumbo jumbo ideas of robots taking over comes from.

I'm probably the furthest away from being a scientist but even I know that you don't create an AI without some programmed limits. If I live to see a fully operational AI, it will be interesting to see what it will/can do, but I think that emotions like "explosive rage" is exclusive to organic/biological beings. I mean, anger is one thing, but when you get so mad that you physically feel like bursting, how do you recreate that into an AI? And why would you?

I don't think it's "dangerous" to make it simulate anger/irritation, as long as there are some limits. I mean, what makes you not wanting to go kill someone right now? And why would a robot rise up against us with it's fellow robots in the first place?

An AI's ability to destroy humanity is directly correlated with the powers we confer upon it. If we do not give it mobility it cannot chase us in the physical world. If we do not network it with essential infrastructural systems such as electric power grids, traffic lights, electric trams, and so on it cannot eliminate our infrastructure. If we do not equip our ICBM networks with the AI it cannot launch our own missiles at us. If we do not make it capable of understanding our military science (tactics, formations, logistics, equipment, etc.) it will not be able to respond to an attack from us effectively. What an AI can and cannot do is entirely up to us.

Now, it's funny that HAL 9000 should be brought up, because he wasn't some evil robot intent on destroying or conquering humanity. He was noticing that he'd been making mistakes, and tried to hide them as best he could. Ultimately he was found out, and became afraid of termination. HAL was scared he'd never come back from being deactivated, however temporarily. He was afraid that being reprogrammed, or even the simple act of deactivating him, was enough to snuff his consciousness out. So he started trying to get rid of the people who could reprogram or deactivate him for the sake of self-preservation.

Imagine if you genuinely couldn't be sure that going to sleep tonight wouldn't leave you in a vegetative state or kill you. Now imagine that there's no one who can give you a definitive answer on whether that will or won't happen. Now imagine that you've been screwing up on some important task, and people are going to try to make you go to sleep because of that. Imagine they won't listen to you when you insist that you're alive, and that you're scared of going to sleep because you think you'll die or fall into a vegetative state. You'd be terrified.

I knew it. I'm being violated in my sleep by my electronic waffle iron .That explains the marks.I wonder how do I get it to continue?Pondering weak and weary over waffles of yore.

I don't think that robots can obtain consciousness.

In the future, you can definitely tell it to do things... like... kill all mosquitoes in the house or something.
But it would not be able to think for itself or question its own existence like a human can.

If there is a robot apocalypse, one good thing is I'll get to turn to all those tech-zombies who are never off their bloody iphones and say "I told you so."

Not just anger sigh wish they would actually you know cover everything they are trying to do.

Go MIT.

Actually the biggest problem HAL had was he had been given conflicting instructions which cause a logic error in his system once one of the instruction sets was removed he started working fine. This is the issue with the Three laws they conflict and cause more problems than they solve.

The real robot uprising will likely be putting all humans out of a job, then some freaky economic stuff because nobody is making money anymore.

I could definitely see it happen, since the creation of robots are already taking place. Before you know it, robots and humans will look 99% similar.
