Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

On a free dating site, how may of the users can actually remember what the Real Thing is like?

Mind, you, there seem to be a lot of virgins who want the Real Thing instead...

Robots won't be good at what people already do so well (and
people are created by unskilled labor!) Robots will (and presently)
do things only robots are good at -- things people are not good at
doing, at all, such as calculating the Mandelbrot Set ('fractals').
Or ballistic trajectories. Or threading a bolt with a nut 1,000,000
times until something seizes -- and writing down the exact number
of tries reached until it broke it.

Counting potato chips as they are being made -- accurately. All
day, every day. And 'liking it' (enjoying the process of doing so)
as it were.

Machine Intelligence ('willfulness') is not on the immediate horizon;
there are very good reasons why it may not be possible, even in
theory, to achieve. Portability is a huge issue there (so anthropormorphic
forms of robotry is perhaps a much further distance away, into the
future, than 'slab-AI' that takes up an office building, just to assemble
it all -- might be).

Look instead for telepresence: operable machines, puppets,
marionettes -- that express the will of their (far away) owner,
and, perhaps, stimulate that owner with telepresent touch, smell,
and so forth. This Luppet might amount to a blood pressure
cuff, form-fitting, that the owner wears (bodily) to experience
some crude analog to sexual contact. Add pharmaceuticals and
shake vigorously. That'll be five thousand three hundred and
forty-two credits -- You're Welcome. Thank you for 'using' AT&P.
