The Time Has Come

There isn't a sense of fear or guilt or doubt, but rather responsibility of the kind his contemporaries might have hoped Victor Frankenstein had. AI scientists gathered recently to talk about the prospects of machines becoming autonomous and smarter than humans. Significantly, they met at Asilomar, California—the place where geneticists met and agreed on a moratorium on research, concerned for the anti-human implications of their work.

Hi, I bookmarked your blog when finishing your book early this summer. I was checking my bookmarks today for the first time evar and saw you had updated today! I love coincidences!

I was in the hospital for tendon lengthening and transfer surgery, which, not to go into too much excruciating detail, involves moving a tendon from the bottom of the foot to add strength to the Achilles tendon (which was, in turn, lengthened). I received your book as a christmas gift and on the advice of Cory Doctorow. Tenuous asmy link to Frankenstein was, I thought it would be a good book to read while recuperating from the type of surgery I had. I still haven't read the primary source (I promise I will. I feel quite guilty about it, but I was an English major in college and it was taught at Centre, but I avoided contact by turning to Faulkner and Welty. I suppose I shouldn't fret too much, as i didn't read plenty of things that were assigned, much less books that weren't assigned), but I have been able to watch a number of the hammer horror films, the 1931 version, and a couple others (i've spent the summer recuperating and watching Frankenstein movies). I consider my cultural literacy much enhanced.

Thank you very much for your work.

I often wonder if the Pinocchio metaphor will ever catch up with Frank ala Spielberg's AI. I think pinocchio is much scarier.

Thanks,
Matthew Brothers
