  • Tyler,

    I just finished the book "Life 3.0 Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence" by Max Tergmark (MIT). Extremely fascinating look at the questions humanity will need to deal with (now) if we are to have any measure of control over the possible future scenarios he presents for the coming AGI and superintelligence. The last chapter deals with the subject of consciousness, how it relates to subjective experience, and why it may be entirely possible for non-biological consciousness. It's exciting to think that consciousness theories such as Giulio Tononi's integrated information framework for neural-network-based consciousness are being tested presently  In this light the current WestWorld is far more fascinating than the original from the 70's. Interesting post. Thanks.

  • Great idea Tyler! One thought on the weight of the effector when fully extended - perhaps see if you can design some type of counterweight to balance things when fully extended?
