Re: public misconceptions

That computer science is only about programming and fixing computer software errors,the only reason that we are studying math is to make our curriculum harder.. (at least in my country.. :P)

Re: human vs Robot

What makes your thinking so normal? How do you know I feel emotions the way you feel them? How do you know I'm not a mindless zombie appearing to behave in a similar way to you, but with no thought? The answer is you can't know, or else you've just solved the problem of other minds . I am making th...

Re: human vs Robot

The OP was asking if there was a significant difference between human beings and hypothetical robots that were a) self aware, b) able to learn and c) able to replicate themselves. I think we can all agree that what makes us human (or at least what makes being human significant) is our ability to th...

Re: human vs Robot

How do you define life? If you mean the scientific one, then it's perfectly possible to build a living robot (most people would call it "synthetic life", not a "robot" at that point, because robots aren't alive). Personally I don't see any difference.. I am just annoyed from tho...

Re: human vs Robot

@OP: Depends on how you define "robot." If intelligent, reproducing machines are all robots, then humans are robots. If robots must be designed, or must containing a silicon chip, or must be man-made, then... I am referring to the idea in which the robots are built upon.. The basic questi...

Re: human vs Robot

Yes, people say illogical things. Humans are not rational by nature, we can be rational if we need to, but most of the time we act intuitively. This is not actually a difference.. One will say illogical things due to the lack of enough "processing power".. The intuition itself I believe i...

Re: How does the computer generate a random number?

You cannot create a random number through an algorithm..Through its definition.. But on the other hand,do you consider the world random,or too difficult to predict? :P

human vs Robot

This question always bugged me,and they always gave me stupid illogical answers:
What makes a human different than a self-aware robot with the ability to learn and replicate itself?
