Tal Cohen's Bookshelf: A Collection of Personal Opinions about Books

Soul of a Robot
The robot soul will be for sure a different creature. Just imagine if you are talking (or rather communicating) with a AI of a similar or superior intelligence. What are you going to talk about? Almost nothing to talk.. - sports? women? good food? weather? vacation by the beach? cold martini? For AI these are all irrelevant concepts, which might be learned about, but never truly appreciated. The key (an correct me if I am wrong) is all these things we enjoy are part of our interaction with the 'outside world' in which we have to survive. AIs being stationary objects and consuming electric power (why would they need to move around in search of food??) will have much more limited 'experience' than humans and therefore topics of real 'mutual interest' will be very limited.
