Super Intelligent Beings
We are creating super intelligent beings, right?
Then, will robots be conscious like us? of course, they will. When we are awake, we absorb information through our senses. As for robots, they have cameras, recorders, and sensors to collect data from their surroundings and then match with trained data and gain awareness. The more data they gain, the more awareness and performance they improve.
Here are a few data mining techniques I learned back then: tracking patterns, association, classification, clustering, prediction, outlier detection, decision trees, and neural networks. All of these are based on how a human’s brain works which mean robots will have the ability to think. As for humans, we have an automatic conscious mind which means we are not thinking all the time and a cognitive conscious mind which is lazy. While our conscious mind is being a lazy ass, the conscious mind of robots can calculate trillions of data per second which makes them super intelligent. But, since robots have to rely on data trained and collected, they won’t have intuition and imagination.
Will robots be emotional? I don’t think so. A human body is made up of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, and other five elements. What is a robot made of? More likely silicon, aluminum, and steel. Our brain has chemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, endorphin, etc but it’s more likely that robots will only have chips. When a person hears sad news, chemicals in the brain affect the mood which leads to be emotional. When a robot hears sad news, it will only interpret data. Of course, reactions can be manipulated. For example, if the result of the algorithm is “sad”, it will display a sad face. Like we, humans, cannot understand the meaning of life, robots will not understand the meaning of love.
Emotions and feelings: fear, anxiety, jealousy, greed, anger, pride, sadness, happiness, love, and so on make us vulnerable but they are what make us humans. Robots are super intelligent beings without emotions and feelings. Aren’t they perfect? We might not notice but we, humans, maybe god ourselves for being able to create such a perfect thing. In what situation can a robot be considered dead? When its physical body is destroyed? I think when its memory is completely erased.
Such super intelligent beings, what will they produce? Since outputs are what is changing the world.

Edit: No wonder I was told I was naive and failed the Turing test.
Edit: Just what was I thinking the entire time. (Sep 27, 2021)
