A lot of people are afraid of the (teletransportation paradox https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teletransportation_paradox), which is where a teleporter breaks you down and then reconstructs you on the other side. Is that really you on the other end?
The promethean approach to AI integration somewhat avoids a similar conundrum - if you just scan your brain into an AI is the simulated brain still you?
For some reason people don't have as much of an issue with (slow transitions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus). If you slowly integrate yourself with a machine until you are all machine, perhaps there is no harm done. Maybe the Promethians have thought of this.Go to Comment
