Star Wars Droids and Real AI


Humans die without human interaction. They die without food and shelter etc.

Star Wars droids explicitly communicate real needs though verbal and nonverbal cues.

Real AI could be programmed to communicate direct and indirect needs and skillsets through such means.

The expressions would emerge from baser sets of fundamental needs and skillsets that would adaptively and algorithmically proliferate into higher levels.

Because the algorithms in such a system would adapt to the contextual fulfillment of needs, such a system could produce AI with individual personalities based on individual experience.

The personalities are not ends to consciousness. Personalities emerge from what the AI knows, and they communicate in ways to allow humans to judge information about the AIs. ie: what does it know? who does it hang out with? what is it good at?

Procurement of information about scenarios might be one of the very needs that drives AI to interact with the world and people around it.




This drives at certain questions of ethics and form of such an AI system.

Do you build AI to be individualistic like in Star Wars?

Do you allow global transmission of data between droids to create an AI hive mind?

I don't think it's ethical to create an AI hive mind that pretends to be like a human.
