The furry pants & T-shirt is an outfit in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.
It provides a Damage Resistance of 24 as well as a bonus of 1 to both Luck and Endurance for the Sole Survivor when worn.
In 2006, Robert Epstein decided to turn to his computer for some help finding a date. In the Memory & Forgetting episode I learned just how literally creative memory is, and how essential it is to our imagination (and identity). The issue, it seems to me, is not how human the machines are, but the capacity of the machines to invoke our hard-wired interpersonal neurology. Also, early on you talked about how you would want some sort of a label for these machines that could think and act and speak like people, because they wouldn't be. During this time we had standing written orders that furbies were not allowed on military bases and so to our wing offices. The moments where I actually learn something are getting fewer and further between. My grandfather went to the Antarctic with Robert Falcon Scott. Human Computer Interaction is not the same as Artificial Intelligence.
Since having a complex carbonnanotube computer is some ways away, maybe one could achieve a conscious computer by having the computer embedded within the larger carbon nanotube structure. There is a documentary about his studies, titled "Mechanical Love".
Kinda vaguely similar to viewing our neurons( our hardware) as being meshed with microtubular structures. The beginning of this show made me think of Digital: A Love Story. I think there are two separate questions raised by the show that got lumped together. This question might be impossible to answer at this point in time since scientist cannot agree on a consistent definition of life.
Instead the commentators just marveled at it in a way that excluded listener. a series of checklists and calculated gradations to categorize and direct a set of tasks. are we making machines smarter or dumbing down the rest of society so that they fit in better? The Furby thing is interesting, but the discussion with Caleb Chung could have benefitted from just another 30 seconds of digging into his argument - it's rooted in the kind of thinking that underlies behaviorism, a theory of mind that was cutting edge in the first half of the last century. I am very happy to hear that he has found a vocation where his study of human gesture has been put to such good use. From a behaviorist perspective, love, hate, thinking, freedom, etc," are conceptual labels that we use to describe a behavioral set. If this is the case then any programmer could replicate a behavioral set to produce the construct. Our affinity to feel "real" does not lie outside of ourselves but rather is interpreted internally! Chris Fernandes, LMHCBehavioral Psychotherapist Thank you again for a wonderful show. That is, from a completely materialistic pov, once we totally understand how our own brains work, will we be able to say that we are any more alive than a program that we also understand completely.
Thanks so much for show, Rosemary Moore I tried both Cleverbot and Eliza and both were quite dissappointing. I just tried to have a normal chat and tell them a little about my self. It's an interesting perspective, but rather than just protesting that it "feels" wrong or insufficient, Krulwich could have taken a moment to tell listeners that behaviorism has been largely supplanted by cognitivism in modern science, which has shown that mental states do correspond with physiological states in the brain - and that these are qualitatively and quantitatively very different from what is going on inside the Furby. He has obviously dedicated himself to his work with the same passion he showed for performance. Listening to Caleb Chung talk about how machines like Furby and humans are both alive made me think about B. Here is my conversation with Cleverbot: Cleverbot: Are you a clone? It seemed to me that the only distinction of human thought is that we do not completely understand it."If I had all of the necessary parts to make a Furby, I could assemble them to working order.
I think I person would have to be quite desperate for company to have several hour conversations with either of them, but especially with cleverbot. This episode could have really benefitted from an interview with Dan Dennett, and for the last story, you danced around the "Chinese Room" problem but never actually addressed it, which is an important concept in AI that would have bolstered the argument Krulwich was trying to make. If I had all of the proper organs and body parts of a human and I sewed them together like Frankenstien, I could not bring that human to life." Actually, what you're missing in both cases is a power source.
