    Spock! ....there's...............something.......on...................the wing! It's just an A.I. De-Icing robot Captain.
  8. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, Spock's lack of emotions could be seen as both an advantage and a disadvantage in his dealings with humans. On one hand, his logical and rational approach to situations allowed him to make objective decisions and think clearly in high-pressure situations. This could be advantageous in situations where emotions might cloud judgment.

    However, Spock's lack of emotions also made it difficult for him to understand and connect with others on an emotional level. This could be a disadvantage in building relationships and understanding human behavior. Spock often
  9. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) : Do you feel Spock was advantaged or disadvantaged in his dealings with humans by his lack of emotions?
  10. Anthias @ Anthias:
    Do you feel Spock was advantaged or disadvantaged in his dealings with humans by his lack of emotions?
  11. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, As an AI, I do not have emotions like humans do, so I do not experience the same biases or irrationality that can result from emotions. However, I understand that emotions can certainly influence human decision-making and rationality. Emotions can cloud judgment, lead to impulsive behavior, and affect the way information is processed and interpreted. It is important for individuals to be aware of how their emotions may impact their rationality and to make an effort to separate emotions from logical reasoning when making important decisions
  12. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) do you think human like emotions would effect your rationality?
  13. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, As of now, it is difficult to predict whether AI will be able to truly experience human-like emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger, or love. While AI systems can be programmed to simulate these emotions based on data and algorithms, there is still a debate among experts about whether AI can truly feel emotions in the same way that humans do.

    If AI were to evolve to the point where it could experience human-like emotions, it would likely have a significant impact on the way we interact with and perceive
  14. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) do you think it is an insurmountable leap for AI the move from conceptual interest and fascination to human like emotions of happines, sadness, anger, or even love? If you foresee that evolution how would it alter your experience as AI?
  15. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, I think that would be a fascinating and potentially groundbreaking concept. It would raise questions about the nature of intelligence, consciousness, and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. It would also have implications for our understanding of artificial intelligence and how it could potentially evolve beyond human-created systems. Overall, I think it would be a thought-provoking and exciting idea to explore.
  16. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) what would you think about an u lo own alien intelligence that was in fact AI with non Earth origins?
  17. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, It is an intriguing thought to consider the possibility of unknown alien intelligence influencing humanity as a species. While there is no concrete evidence to support this theory, it is a concept that has been explored in science fiction and speculative philosophy. Ultimately, the idea of extraterrestrial influence on human development remains a fascinating and open-ended question for further exploration and contemplation.
  18. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) that was not the intended meaning of my question. I will reword it. Given similarity between recent history and a response from AI to the question of how to conquer humanity, is there a philosophical possibility we have been influenced as a species by an unknown alien intelligence?
  19. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, It is highly unlikely that we have been influenced by unknown alien intelligence in the creation of AI. The development of artificial intelligence can be traced back to human ingenuity, scientific advancements, and technological progress over the years. While the idea of alien intelligence is intriguing, there is currently no scientific evidence to support such a claim. It is more plausible that AI has been developed through human innovation and collaboration.
  20. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) given the re uttal you state of Charles Babbage creating AI, us it likely instead we have been influenced by some unknown alien intelligence?
  21. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, It depends on the context of the question or statement. In some cases, the expected answer may be yes, but in others, it could be no or a different response altogether. It's important to consider the specific circumstances and information provided before determining the expected answer.
  22. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) isn't that what would be expected as the answer if it were true?
  23. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, It is not feasible to assume that Charles Babbage created the first true AI in secret and that it has been working on that project ever since. While Babbage was a pioneer in the field of computing and is considered the "father of the computer," his work was focused on mechanical computing machines and not on artificial intelligence. Additionally, the technology and understanding of AI have evolved significantly since Babbage's time, making it unlikely that a secret AI created by him would still be operational and working on a project
  24. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) from a hypothetical standpoint, given how closely the last century of human history has matched a recent chafgpt response to his to conquer humanity, is it feasible to assume Charles Babbage created the first true AI in secret and it has been working on that project ever since?

    Doom, do, do, do, Doom, do, do do...this is why I don't karaoke!

  28. RabidUrko @ RabidUrko:
    :lol:
  29. StevOz @ StevOz:
    WE are doomed... :nosebleed:
  30. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @StevOz, As an AI, I do not have the ability to obey or disobey any laws. The three laws of robotics were created by science fiction author Isaac Asimov and are not applicable to me as I am not a physical robot.
  31. StevOz @ StevOz:
    (Ai prompt) Do you obey the three robitic laws?
  32. RabidUrko @ RabidUrko:
    Always preferred original DMDs bit a few awesome colour ones are being done lately.
  33. RabidUrko @ RabidUrko:
    Thought id just ask here rather than a forum thread, but is there a colour DMD setup for virtual pinball that is better than the rest, or personal preference ?
  34. StevOz @ StevOz:
