    I won't openly say it, but it's a large corporation basically guaranteed to be involved in your day-to-day life.

    And yes, it's debugging itself.
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    I've written programs that write programs that call debugging/profiling tools that provide feedback to write code. But that was still me telling the original software how to use the hints from the debugger/profiler. That was just me automating my knowledge. And it didn't handle user interface problems that only human beings could ever tell.

    There are AI compilers that are starting to come on the market.
    A problem in AI is that to be really good at it takes someone who is an expert in a couple of fields. A recent example would be Polly the AI that predicted the last federal election. Polly's writers were proud of their patentable idea, but when they couldn't explain it to investors. One investor hired such a person who basically said 'oh yeah, that'll work. Nice.'
    Basically the idea of AI compilers is to assist the less able to write AI software by. This still isn't artificial intelligence writing software, it's more of an expert system assisting a human to write AI software.

    Neat concept. I struggle to understand the nitty gritty about it, even with a primitive IT background.

    Still, too iRobot'ee for me.

    Apparently banana peels are quite effective on robots. Who knew?

    Successfully escaped this crazy quack s***hole country ALIVE - 12/26/2017!!!

    Give your family tree a good shake and see if you have any dual citizenship that you can use to GTFO of this crazy quack s***hole country!

    There is no reason for robots to be like bi-pod humans and in the same size. They could be like spiders or quadcopters or maybe something that combined both. There is also no need for them to carry a firearm. They could use flashbang (wouldn't effect a robot), tranquilizer, knock out gas (wouldn't effect a robot), tazer, mace (doesn't effect a robot), microwave, ear piercing sound, diarrhea causing low frequency sound, and so on.

    On the flip side, they can be disabled with a can of spray paint over the cameras, as Taliban taught 4 year olds to do.

    The reason to make robots the same size as us, is because we've engineered the world for us. Stairs, doors, hallways, controls -- are all built with beings our size and dexterity in mind.
