What was that reason? I object to the move:
1. I don't believe cyber-ethics exists as a seperate study from ethics. =
won't discuss that on this list, though; that belongs on the other =
:-) Plus, I hate the prefix 'cyber'.
2. We're not discussing whether it's moral or right to form an AI; =
discussing whether it's possible and reasonable. After we decide =
it's possible it will be reasonable (and vitally important) to discuss
whether it's ethical and moral: in other words, whether we 'should' do =
3. We're not discussing an issue unrelated to Tunes; we're arguing =
something that you've just revealed to be the core of Tunes itself. If =
can't make AI, then we can't realise your vision of Tunes. I didn't =
this before, although I've have vague suspicions.
Please clarify, Fare'. I don't understand why you're doing this.
