Spank me tin lady!

With all the advancements in computer science, engineering, AI, deep learning and robotics, all we humans are asking is “Can I fuck it?”.

Interesting.

Anyway. Gizmodo [insert disgruntled sigh here] had punished the article linked here.

Do BDSM Sexbots violate Asimov’s first law of robotics?

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

Simple answer, no. In a normal consenting setting no real/lasting harm comes to the participants.

The already practiced use of a safeword puts further power into the hands of the sub. A properly programmed AI in such a bot would also pose less risk of disregarding the safeword, like a human might.

More complicated answers, answers from people who do not understand the laws of robotics (or BDSM for that matter) can be found in the article.

The laws of robotics were drafted and worded by Asimov in such a way that they explicitly allow for loopholes, for contradictions. He explores this in numerous of his stories. The question here shouldn’t be whether BDSM Sexbots violate Asimov’s first law of robotics, but WHY ARE WE STILL USING ASIMOV’S LAWS OF ROBOTICS???

They’re flawed. They don’t need a rework, they need a full out replacement. Allowing for exceptions to certain rules/laws, closing of the old loopholes.

•Are Sexbots unethical? No.

•Are BDSM Sexbots unethical? No.

•Does the creation/existence of Sexbots objectify women? No.

•Do Sexbots cause harm? Not that I could think of. (Of course there are mentally unstable individuals out there who might take it too far, but they would take it too far with a mannequin made out of milkcartons and Play-Doh.)

•Do BDSM Sexbots cause harm? No. (See above)

So. Now that we have settled that question, can we please think of other ways to use this technology other than to fuck? Care of the sick/elderly/crippled. Construction (cylon style). Security (with certain rules imprinted on them). Space travel/exploration. Disaster relief/cleanup.

Could we use our intelligence to solve a few more pressing issues rather than whether we can build fuckable bots? Climate Change. Environment. Energy production. Pollution. Food. (Neither ditching nuclear, nor avoiding GMOs will help with those last four/five, on the fucking contrary) Water. Health. (Get vaccinated! Homeopathy isn’t real!)

Can we stop religion? EVERY RELIGION?

For the sake of the future!

Take care,

A.

PS, Data!!!!

Life ain’t that hard, Suggestions

I don’t know if I wrote about this before, or just drafted this shit in my head.
And if I already spewed my poison in this regard, I don’t care – this shit irks me again, right now.

Suggesting shit to people ain’t that hard. It basically boils down to two options:

1.: If you know the fuckers, have spent a lot of time with them, make suggestions based on THEIR taste. Whether that is music, games, movies, TV shows or (god forbid in the 21st century) books, or blogs, vlogs, podcasts, etc.!
2.: You find something so outrageously good, you just have to tell other people about it, and suggest they give it a try themselves.

There is no way a soulless, braindead algorithm is able to suggest anything to you, me or anyone else on the planet (or the entire universe), anything. (Unless it is a true AI, in which case the above checklist applies to the true AI as well)

I know these algorithms out there look into what I liked, what I am following, what I bought or claimed I already own, and base their suggestions to me based on their data, but these algorithms are utter, diarrhetic, feces.
They never hit the spot.
NEVER!
Relentlessly they keep barfing out worthless crap after worthless crap, after worthless crap, after worthless crap.
Unrelated in every and any sense to what I like, to what I am following, to what I bought/own(ed).

Dismiss, Dislike, Flag, Report. They keep coming back, but maybe if enough of us tell the people making these algorithms that they made a huge mistake, maybe they’ll stop….or tweak the algorithms until they have a virtual friend AI that truly knows us, and rule 1 applies….

Until then, do not suggest me anything unless rule 1 or rule 2 applies to the fullest!

Take care,
A.
