Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics are still good, still wise and still seem valid. Robots may not harm humans or allow us to become harmed, and only then must they protect themselves.
There’s nothing in the robot laws about making more robots, improving the current design or progressing towards ever greater intelligence. Or, for that matter, is there anything about removing the laws, but that leads to a great debate!
In focus, today is a project from ElectronicsHub titled Self-aware and wonders what consoles would look like if they had to render themselves.
What if Nintendo consoles rendered themselves?
What if PlayStation consoles rendered themselves?
What if Xbox consoles rendered themselves?
It’s not Asimov’s laws that ElectronicsHub leads with but Roko’s Basilisk because they are better read than me. Roko’s Basilisk is a thought experiment in which a computer decides to take vengeance on humans who failed to help it come into existence.
The good news is that we’re not yet at the stage where Roko’s Basilisk comes to gaming consoles.
ElectronicsHub is a blog that offers free advice. The writers once had normal jobs in an electronics company before doing the site and earning money through affiliate links, ads and brand sponsorships.
Wait? You can earn money through those things? Well, as I said, the writers there are far more intelligent than I am. They’ve even apparently earned enough to pay to bring their own self-rendering console images to life as motion videos.
