A taste of things to come...
What excites me about this short CGI film is not the amazing details or the display of wonderful skill in creating it. No. It brought tears to my eyes because although we are a long way from having such an event occur. Singularity. The question begs; what will be our moral responsibility when such an event does occur. And yes; its coming, the question is when. And the real question is; are we ready to step up and show a moral compass that will acutely define us as a species. Androids will be conceived, planned, dreamed up, designed, created, and produced by us. When one of them reaches singularity, shall we still consider ourselves their owner and master. Will we sanction slavery. Will we be able to measure their worth. Shall they have the same rights as any sentient being "born" on earth. I believe that we are not yet prepared to accept a manufactured being as our equal; in either spirit or legal status. We award rights and protection of laws to pets and animals because we believe that they suffer at our hands. What are we ready to do when a machine we designed and created tells us that they feel that we should not own them like a merchandise, but accept them as our equals in everything that we consider is our right as human beings. This is an ethical and moral dilemma that given the march of our science and the work of computer scientists attempting to achieve this, must sooner or later be considered whether we like it or not.
