A.I.: curiosity ethics

Clementon, NJ

#1 Apr 21, 2013
Computer scientists try to build electronic microchip processing circuits that mimic human brain signal pathways in the hopes of creating Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).

A.I. is machine-built sophisticated intelligence that mirrors and even mimics the complexity of human intelligence and consciousness.

Because genetics has seen an explosion in development in the last decade, scientists have begun to ask questions more complex than merely, "can we clone the human heart?" They are now asking, "can we make synthetic brains that are profound?"

Educational institutions such as Harvard University and the Salk Institute are studying the sensitive intersections between philosophy and ethics, intersections that inform humanity's prudent management of labor. Labor is the key issue since of course, the more organic or natural objects and molecules we synthetically replicate, the more we are compelled to ask, "Should humans play God? Should humans replicate natural elements with synthetic processes?"

Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" (1818) is a cautionary tale that implies that when human beings (scientists) tamper with nature, they tempt fate by making incredible dares with natural limits, limits that perhaps should not be crossed.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
