  1. Good afternoon.

    This can be assumed from the fact that you asked this question. Because it belongs to the category of questions like ” Who am I ?”that are inherent in a living person and are part of his self-reflecting nature.

    A robot would hardly be interested in such game, since it does not have a self-observing part called the soul/spirit / consciousness, etc.

  2. Well, that's not how it works. There is no such thing that at first we do not know that this is a real person, and then by some strong arguments we admit that everything is real.

    On the contrary: at first, the reality of other people does not cause any doubts, and only then, due to the peculiarities of mental development and the love of rationalization, even where it does not make sense, such questions appear.

    Therefore, there is no need to look for arguments – it is better to understand the reason why someone asks such a question.

  3. I generally think that you are part of the creativity of my conscious and subconscious mind. And I don't care if this part is pretending to be a human or a robot. What is important is what lesson, experience, or information does it teach me?

  4. The ROBOT may well be smarter and more cultured than many unfortunate people, who are the real negative problem of society.

    The ROBOT is a friend of a person who responds to any grief-criticism in his address like this: “everyone has their own shortcomings “(quote from the film).

    1. I've never heard of such a “problem”. Someone must have cheated on you.

    2. This is elementary, Watson! Bots start raining down on the first question like “Are you a bot?” or “How can you prove to me that you're not a bot?”. The person may even be offended by this, but they will respond with something intelligible. The bot pushes targeted ads or, at best, starts asking “psychoanalytic” questions like: “What do you think about this?”,” Does it bother you?”,” Do you want to talk about it?”, which do not carry any information at all.


  5. It is very difficult to refute the problem of “other minds”, otherwise it would not be a problem.

    Personally, I have deduced this empirical method for myself:

    If I receive new information from the other person, even in a minimal amount, or when communicating with them, my brain is engaged in work and at its completion (or completion of a stage of work) I am grateful to him, then I have communicated with a thinking being.

    If the interlocutor's speech is replete with various cliches, simplifications taken either from pop books, or from VK posts, and broadcast in an even more simplified version, then I can't even call it a biorobot. This is the most primitive bot mimicking a person.

    There is another problem.

    And how can I (you, any person) understand that I (she herself) am I a thinking being? How do I know that I'm not a biorobot pre-programmed to execute a certain set of instructions with an attached consciousness/personality emulator? How to distinguish your mental activity from the primitive reproduction of the received information. Even if we reproduce something different from what we previously perceived, it is likely that the difference is caused by a defective memory, perception organs and (or) a general inferiority of the system?

  6. “The problem of minds”. Is it the main one for a person? There are many science fiction movies where people loved robots. This question has been troubling us ever since they first appeared in our minds. Perfect robots will appear very soon. As employees, they will be “smarter” and more reliable than humans. But what makes a robot different from a human? Or even an android? What if you give a robot a human brain, will it be a person stuffed with prosthetics, or a piece of iron with a brain? What makes a person Human in its highest sense? Senses-sensors and artificial intelligence will be created. Same as a human, better, worse? Are they the same for humans? So that's not the point, that's not the main thing. But what?
    All these questions, as well as questions about the meaning of life, have a lot in common and I see the same answer to all of them. The main question that gives answers to all the others is the question of the Soul! An ever-living and infinitely improving Soul. And then the question will be: will the Soul choose a robot if it is as perfect as a human?! I purposely did not finish the sentence and developed the topic of the perfect robot. When robots will be as individual and unique as humans, and can even pass on” inherited ” DNA. Will the Soul need these “pieces of hardware” as much as people (and maybe to a greater extent?) to take life lessons in the process of eternal perfection? Who will undertake to answer this question unequivocally?…
    I believe in my Soul and for me it is not worth it. Those who know what the Soul is, for those, too, there is no such question. And for you?)

  7. You're definitely not a robot asking this question, I know!)))))))))) Why do I know? I have a lot of experience in asking questions, in semantics, in semiotics and studying bots 😉 And the question is straight to the point on the topic of solipsism! Actually, the answer to this very question is the problem of solipsism!!!

  8. I don't know, and if you have advanced artificial intelligence, I don't know. And there is no point in doing this, as long as it does not bring me losses in any way. But if this is the case, then this is already worth thinking about.

    At a minimum, artificial intelligences currently have a rather meager set of phrases. But let's assume that the intelligence of this program is developed quite well – this will be the disadvantage of this program. Since they can't make mistakes, they can be caught doing it – how? This is already a problem for those who will work on it.

    Further, AI's entire thinking is based on template situations, and if they are placed in completely unusual communication conditions, they will simply freeze in search of a solution to a critical error. Man is a fairly adaptive creature, and it won't be long before AI can reach such a high level.

    Yes, even if they do, the problem with AI is that they can't create their own kind. That's when they learn… we will need to think about how we can determine whether the AI is in front of us or a real person…

    It all depends on the level of development, because we ourselves are not much different from AI, the only thing that distinguishes us is our feelings and motivation. Robots won't be able to sense until you create a real body for them…

    It was messy, but somehow so)
