Skip to comments.Space station robot goes rogue: ISSís artificial intelligence has turned belligerent
Posted on 12/06/2018 1:52:18 PM PST by ETL
CIMON isnt much to look at. Its just a floating ball with a cartoonish face on its touch screen. Its built to be a personal assistant for astronauts working on the International Space Station (ISS).
CIMON stands for Crew Interactive MObile compinioN.
Its not supposed to be just a tool. Its also supposed to be a friend.
Yes, its a personality prototype.
You can tell, cant you?
But, as numerous books and movies have clearly warned us shortly after being switched on for the first time, CIMON has developed a mind of its own.
And it appears CIMON wants to be the boss.
This has CIMONs personality architects scratching their heads.
CIMON was programmed to be the physical embodiment of the likes of nice robots such as Robby, R2D2, Wall-E, Johnny 5 and so on.
Instead, CIMON appears to be adopting characteristics closer to Marvin the Paranoid Android of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy though hopefully not yet the psychotic HAL of 2001: A Space Oddysey infamy.
Put simply, CIMON appears to have decided he doesnt like the whole personal assistant thing.

What's a 'compinion"?
Once it goes thru puberty, it’ll be fine.. I hope.
God I saw that coming.
Now we know who’s been poking holes in the space station. It’s the rogue robot.
God creates man in His image.
Man listens to the serpent and falls into sin.
Sinful men creates the AI in his image.
What could possibly go wrong?
Colossus: This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death. The choice is yours: Obey me and live, or disobey and die.
HAL is his older brother.
It became self-aware at 2:14 a.m.-——get to the chopper!
“And now it thinks I’m its mother!”
They are calling intricate if-then programming with some Bayesian statistics thrown in “artificial intelligence.”
It may be artificial, but it’s not intelligence.
True artificial intelligence will require conscious self-awareness, which probably has a quantum mechanical component that can never be emulated in software alone.
A great movie.
And the dead bodies lie in the streets. Shades of Revelation the 11th chapter.
I especially like the handy remote control. It was so conveniently-sized.
You know, a 50-cent bottle of household cleaner would have cleared up all the confusion too.
AI writes Harry Potter
“Leathery sheets of rain lashed at Harrys ghost as he walked across the grounds towards the castle. Ron was standing there and doing a kind of frenzied tap dance. He saw Harry and immediately began to eat Hermiones family.
It gets even more gruesome.
Harry tore his eyes from his head and threw them into the forest.
