The technologic Singularity is crucially dependent on AI
developments, unfriendly AI
may represent
the greatest
existential risk out
there.

It does not naturally follow that all AI researchers are
believers in the Singularity.


It is amazing how much of a "relationship" you can strike up
with the Sony
Aibo

robotic dog despite the fact it represents
2005 technology, none have been produced since
then.

Imagine what their capabilities would be today if Sony
had continued developing them over the past six years!


The only way I could get one in 2003 and 2004 was to fly to
the US stay in a hotel just long enough for the product to be
delivered and then fly back home, they were impossible to get
in Canada after 2002 through regular Sony channels here as
there was not a market among Canadian consumers.

A child playing with them quickly deconstructs them to a
point where they look quite ugly and incomplete.

The
main market in the US was affluent young women.

Most government investment in robotics in North America
is in military robots, whereas the investment in Asia is in
robots to care for the elderly and do household
tasks.

Most consumer developments in this area
will
probably
come
from Asia.

The
replicants

in the movie
were
products of genetic
engineering, biology based flesh and blood beings, not
silicon and circuit boards.
