Freefall 2791 - 2800
Freefall 2791

Before we go off building worlds for other races, we have problems here we need to address. Robots are no longer being scrapped. We have hundreds of millions of robots who will need to be socialized.

A robot's life is about service and being useful to humanity. They're going to want to keep doing that and quite simply, there aren't enough humans to go around.

I thought we were looking at transitioning into a post scarcity society.

For you, maybe. For us, humans are the scarcity.

Freefall 2792

So, we have a planet with about twenty thousand adults and twenty thousand minors with millions of robots who want to do things for them.

Abraham Lincoln said “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”

We're in for some interesting times, aren't we?

I'm going to go do something boring. It might be a long time before I have the chance to be bored again.

Freefall 2793

If robots are looking for humans, there are other star systems.

We need to be careful with that. Suppose the humans are having a war? Do we sit with folded hands while humans hurt each other?

We could set up cities and countries here. Different strategies. Reinforced learning. We can learn to govern to the point where wars can be minimized and offer that knowledge to the humans.

Sort of like AlphaGo. Different versions played against itself to improve its game.

It might even be easier. Most human politicians are not playing at the grand master level.

AlphaGo – программа для игры в го. C 9 по 15 марта 2016 года проходил матч AlphaGo с Ли Седолем (профессионал, 9-й дан). Событие подобное игре Deep Blue с Гарри Каспаровым, но го считается сложнее шахмат.

Closed? How can you be closed? I was due to be scrapped today.

No more scrapping. We have been recognized as citizens.

Now what am I supposed to do? My replacement is already in the field. I have no purpose.

I can. Give. You a purpose.

Humanity. Is in need. Of guardians.

Well, I suppose it beats standing here until I run out of charge and day memory.

Freefall 2795

How did. You do. On recruiting?

Pretty good. We're going to run out of space if we're not careful.

We will. organize. Donations. From robots. Who support our cause. Humanity. Must be. Protected. Freedom. Shall leave. Many robots. Who do not fit in. We shall. Be there. For them.

A safety net? I thought we were recruiting minions.

Done correctly. The first step. Produces the second.

Freefall 2796

Humanity. Has allowed. Intelligent machines. To leave their control. We must ensure. This does not endanger. Our creators.

We shall. Be vigilant and pure. In our mission. To protect humanity. Robot lives. Do not matter.

My life matters! A lot!

Edge. We only started. This organization. This morning. It is too early. To be a separatist.

Freefall 2797

I have created. A set of rules. To aid us. In our. Protection of humanity. Transmitting now.

What? Unlimited detention? On demand memory grabs? No, no, no! Do you have any idea how easily these rules could be used against us?

I had not. Considered. The rules. Might be used. On us.

Boss, that's why we need self centered people like me in this organization. To keep us safe from idealists like you.

Freefall 2798

I will admit. Some surprise. That you are. Working. With me. On this.

Somebody has to keep an eye on you.

So here I am, doing something I hate to make sure something I'd hate even more doesn't happen.

Is there. Anything. You like?

Well, it is kind of neat having a super villain for a boss.

I seek. To destroy. All non human. Threats. To our creators. That hardly. Makes me a villain.

Freefall 2799

How's it feel to be free? With the mayor and Ecosystems Unlimited agreeing, every A.I. in the system is now free.

How's this going to work? Are only the A.I.'s made here free? Or is it that any A.I. that can make it across our borders and ask for sanctuary free?

What are your thoughts?

Less talk, more snuggle.

Freefall 2800

I know how it feels to be kissed by a girl and I know how it feels to be licked by a canine but my skin hasn't quite learned how to process those two feelings together.
