Today’s post follows a slightly different train of thought to normal but I thought it interesting nonetheless.
In recent months I have noticed an increasing amount of literature on the development of not “artificial life” (A I) as a whole, but rather the building blocks of life in artificial form.

Many early developments have already made their marks upon the world and it seems that fully fledge conscious androids are only just around the corner, especially when you’ve got quotes like this which are simply mind blowing.
