Rise of the machines


The machine is defined by its function,
the machine only exist to serve function
the machine without function has no purpose.

Function can be meaningful or contrived,
function existing on the back of other
functions, existing as the primary objective,
as a niche, unnoticed as a secondary means
to support some asteria end.

The perfect machine, will be machine made,
defined as a product of the numbers, manlike
but without his soul. Manlike but with all
thought replaced by some plausible excuse
for a mind.

This machine will be programmed to serve
circumstance. A series of plausible, yet
contrived circumstance will determine its
responses.

This new machine will pursue its function
with no respect of the other functions served
by other machines. Existing to satisfy self,
the purpose of its instructions will count as
nothing to its own goals. Routine will dominate.

This would be a lot more interesting if it were unique.

Unique or not it deserves to be said, and often.
Besides, what one claims as unique, is itself a
measure of experience, just ask any inexperienced
machine.

Sometimes it takes a mirror to see ourselves.

Allied to the post above is the idea of the lie
and our discernment of lies, as the highest form
of intelligence. A.I being somewhat short of the
real thing, might find itself content with the
plausible, with no way to determine the origins
of the truth it was made to observe.

You might call this a clue for any present or
future A.I.

Sounds like a quote from Chaplin's "Modern Times".

Before this came:
====
A person is defined by function
the person only serves function
the person without function has no purpose
====

It stands to reason then that something 'manufactured' from and by this,
like a machine, would reflect the disposition of such a manufacturer.

If a person's function, and so purpose, is assigned to them, they are a
machine, if not, they are and have their own purpose.
