Terraforming is a huge project. There are thousands of steps that have to take place in the right order for a viable ecosystem to take hold. There are good reasons for Mr. Ishiguro to stick to the plan.
We are at the beginning of the robots developing a society. If we ignore what's happening, that society is still going to develop, just without our input.
So, the classic impending collision of an irresistible force and an immovable object?
That question is a lot less fun when you're in between the two.
Qwerty. Dvorak. Good morning. Today we're going to help Mr. Raibert show that allowing robots to function independently after age twenty will not disrupt terraforming efforts and lead to long term profits.
So, infrastructure needs versus current industrial output, skilled labor for new construction and value added to existing areas without treading on current planned expansion. Got it.
Can we make…?
No! No nuclear sunflowers! It doesn't matter how far the seeds distribute if they take out everything in the local area!
Sawtooth. Tangent. Glad you could make it. Dvorak will fill you in.
What are you doing?
Every Sunday we get together for a project. Afterwards, we discuss the ramifications of our actions.
These guys want to follow orders. Not all humans are going to give good ones. I'm trying to give the robots something we take for granted. The ability to make an informed decision and tell a human “no”.
