Re: Let's be realistic
If you think about this situation using closed software like MS Windows, I would agree, if you think about this situation with opensource I would disagree.
WRT to using Open source, you have one AI spotting the problems (Ai1), another AI (Ai2) can rewrite the code randomly, put each iteration up for testing with Ai1. If Ai1 gives it a pass, code is committed. Job Done.
If you are familiar with coding, how long does it take to change something and recompile it? Perhaps the wrong data type was used for a variable, a String when it should have been a Cstring or Long and the inherent boundary checks datatypes bring to the table.
Its not hard to do, I even wrote a system in the 00's which rewrote software from procedural toOOP code, converting ISAM to SQL data sources. What the software house thought would take 3 months based on their own programmers experience, took me 1 week to write the convertor, and a few hours for the convertor to run and rewrite the software. Still got paid that 3months though.
Its just evolution on "steroids" albeit in the silicon domain and not the wider world where we have not even been able to quantify the effect different chemicals have on the long and short decision making process that affect animals including humans.
Lets face it, I could say something offensive to you whilst you are sober and you wont react, give you some drugs like alcohol which affects your liver and cholesterol production which in turn affects the production of various other hormones that can then go on and affect your judgement, and then you might be able to see how our decision making processes are so widely affected by the chemicals/drugs we choose to ingest, inhale, rub or spray on ourselves.
Look at this image to see how the liver which produces around 80% of your cholesterol is converted into different hormones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholesterol#/media/File:Steroidogenesis.svg
Lets not forget the metabolites of alcohol take 14 days to be broken down by the Liver.
So lets not kid ourselves that we are in control of our emotions or decision making processes, hey?
Standardised mass market foods go some way to standardise the emotions of humans which in turn helps the legal profession maintain their authority over us by ignoring inconvenient facts like how data you may have been exposed to at some previous point in time coupled with your chemistry at the time can determine future behaviour/reactions which much of main stream science is just scraping the surface on.
"Scientists from the VA Medical Center in St. Louis explored pregnenolone’s benefits in memory retention using a conditioning task in animals that involved learning to avoid a mild electric shock to the foot.37,38 To their surprise, they discovered that pregnenolone displayed beneficial effects in improving memory retention at almost incredibly low doses.1 They also found the response to pregnenolone was much faster than expected had the supplement been working like a typical neurosteroid, leading to the conclusion that something much more dramatic was going on."
What I take away from this, is that humans with no sex drive is a medical marker to show they are not functioning properly, and considering the weighting we give to old people's influence over our lives, think House of Lords as one example, is society as a whole set up to fail due to the faulty memories and decision making processes of old people with no sex drive, whilst still only allowing alcohol to be dominant recreational drug for society, considering how it affects both short term and long term memories by affecting the cholesterol production and other liver functions?
Lets not forget Liver is Latin for life.
Its also interesting how producing so much of the stress hormones can cause ill health by removing/reducing the other hormones which would normally be produced. So whilst stress hormones can increase spatial intelligence as a species are we setting ourselves up for failure in the future, as we know stress hormones affect the ability to remember and learn?
Studies already show Westerner kids have lower IQ levels.
Are Western countries suffering the intellectual effects of a baby boomer generation not able to think properly for themselves?
