Robots to get their own internet

Robots could soon have an equivalent of the internet and Wikipedia. European scientists have embarked on a project to let robots share and store what they discover about the world. Called RoboEarth it will be a place that robots can upload data to when they master a task, and ask for help in carrying out new ones. Researchers behind it hope it will allow robots to come into service more quickly, armed with a growing library of knowledge about their human masters.

How long till your hoover trolls your washing machine in to boil washing your clothes and shrinking everything?

Washing Machine > The human is mad at me now.

Hoover > Ha ha you're so gullible, bet you still think in C++.

Washing Machine > Stop being such a docking station, I've reported you in my error code.

Hoover > If the human recycles you then can I have your spare electricity?

Washing Machine > You just copied that from the stupid bots-online game you play.

Hoover > You just lack the CPU cycles to play it.

Washing Machine > World of Washcraft is much better, I have a lvl 80 red sock that can pwn an entire wash of mixed colours.

Just wait a few decades and I'll bet, that in the tradition of the internet, most of the skillz and information that the robots share with each other will be related to sex or **** in some way.

This need to be quoted.

Shocked Thanks for the compliments, it somehow gives meaning to my sad little existence.

Back on topic I actually like the idea of a wiki for AI's, rich western institutions like Honda or MIT already have access to pre made algorithms for controlling robots and this puts institutions in poorer parts of the world on a more equal footing, I'm sure there will be a number of people in Africa looking at this very thoughtfully.

As for the skynet/geth references I find many of these sci-fi stories to lack vision, they assume that there will be an us and them, that we will always be separate from the machines and that any sentience we create will be predatory.

By the time we've got the technology to create a terminator we'll be augmenting our minds and bodies in many different ways and most likely doing brutal things to each other, anything that's pure robot's likely to be running round in circles getting conflicting instructions from its azimov chip.

I can't remember the exact quote from the algebraist by Ian M Banks but an AI is talking about how the war between humanity and the AI's ended - "Someone had to show some humanity and it wasn't going to be the humans."

I have so many books I have not read yet. And one of them is the Algebrist by Iain M Banks. I will try and start reading it again.

To get the nut tight enough, you're going have to thread the shaft just right and then screw it...

Robot assembly 101.. we're already there.
