That was in the movies, ST 2 & 3 where Spock ‘copied/pasted’ his core mind into McCoy, then ultimately died from radiation saving the ship. He was resurrected, pasted his McCoy copy into the new Spock in ST 3&4, if I recall.Star Trek even dabbled in this. Spock had the Vulcan mind melt. And there was that one episode where Spock transferred everything he was over to Dr. McCoy.
Yes, the British Sci-Fi series "Humans" showed the consequences of that very well. Some were good, some went rouge. We made them very attractive, and Niska was forced into prostitution, so she rebelled against her keepers.If mankind is going to start producing synthetic beings in its own image, then it is in for trouble. Hopefully we will see the dangers in time.
I use eBay also, shipping is a bit slow but I'm very rural and isolated out here. We have to use satellite for everything, im on it now while typing this.Clovis, thanks for that. I'll look out on eBay et cetera.
Edit: just got Series 1 at £2.46 free postage on eBay. Thanks.
I wondered about what happened to it. I thought it was very well done and better than TWD. But this is said to be the last season for the walking dead. I think the whole zombie thing has pretty well played itself out.Quick look Ch 4 found nothing. The following general back story found:
"Humans is a science fiction television series that debuted on Channel 4. ... A third series was commissioned in March 2017 and aired eight episodes between 17 May and 5 July 2018. In May 2019, Channel 4 announced that the series had been cancelled."
Anyway, I got Series 1 at very good price to look see. Thanks for your input.
That could very well be our first emissary from the starsQuestion: If you were dying, would you allow everything you are or were, to be transferred over into an Android duplicate?
Memory, everything, if there were the capibilty of doing that. I know it's all far flung SciFi, And what if your consciousness came with that ? PureCrystal as a brain is very interesting, and all the data it could hold. Once there is a corpse, it's all lost in the physical world.
Bicentennial man was a self replacing Android by the time he was done.'Bicentennial men' - good and kind conception and it looks unreachable.
What is consciousness (and where is it in our body) is still not resolved.
AI - is an umbrella definition of all that 'a machine' making without human involvement.
Android just a human-like ('Boston' dogs might have also it's -onim, nick name).
Science strive is to make machine learning algorithms behave like a human would do, feeding the whole available 'memory'. So that is far from a personality, which is made of personal experience.
Whatever intelligence would be created, will it have some upper-level ambitions?
