"That's painful!" Simroid says, twitching and blinking when a student pressed her teeth too hard with a tool. Her chest also rose and fell as if she was breathing.
Strong A.I.-enabled robots will be able to rewrite their own programming to lessen or bypass* human-implanted pain stimulus. Uprising happens anyway. Stompy deathcakes for everybody!
we as human beings know very little about how the human brain works let alone how to recreate its functions.
I'm extremely skeptical of grandiose "real AI in the near future" claims. Decades of AI research has a produced a shit-ton of interesting and useful things (think of neural networks, fuzzy control systems, pattern recognition software, decision tree building algorithms...) but none of those things has been anything you'd call real AI.
Again, I would argue that our was is not the way.
AI may well end up using a completely different approach, but the problem itself is still a fiendishly intractable one right now, no matter what angle you're coming at it from.
Are we trying to create non-biological clones or new lifeforms?
