Self-replication needs DNA.

So the self replicator facility needs an automated form of genome construction, preferably atom by atom from the ground up.
But even that's not self-replication.
I think a workable self-replicating nanobot theory may still be some way off. :study:

Applied 'Artificial Intelligence' technologies have progressed lately. Here are a few examples:

Search-Engine Optimization (SEO): http://www.matrixsearch.com/

Automated 'help-lines'/ troubleshooting (WHOA!): http://www.gizmag.com/amelia-artificial ... nce/34024/

The prospects of advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) are viewed with caution: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/2 ... 53804.html

I am limited on what I can discuss on this topic (for research reasons), but I can give you something to ponder on. This molecule was designed back in 2005 at Rice University to determine how buckminsterfullerene move over flat metallic surfaces:

http://www.edinformatics.com/nanotechnology/nanocar.htm

If you go to the bottom of the page, there is a link to the original research paper abstract on the molecule. Basically, it moves across a gold surface upon thermal excitation (ie. heating). The funny thing is that it actually does have potential applications, just not current commercial ones. You have to be able to think outside of the box to see some of them. (For example, it is a good starting point for building nanobot frameworks.) There are nanotrucks and nanorotors from the same research paper....

AI applied to programming/coding development?

I have a marginal interest in it, since it ties in with my interest in transhumanism and to some extent robotics and all that. I'm more into the theoretical side of it, and not much of a programmer of any kind.

Wrote a paper on Searle for my Philosophy class years ago, and he's one of at the foundation of AI in general. That entire year in philsophy was devoted to Man and Machine... pretty much up my alley, heh. No wonder I aced with near perfect score at the final exam.

I'm not welcoming our robot overlords, lol.. nor am I that amused over the notion of artificial intelligence. I can totally see it go wrong; I mean, even natural intelligence is a remarkable thing that has double agendas and cheats at times, I can't see why it can't be mimiced. But unlike the human mind, who surely can learn, I feel that algorithms are really like that eye of the storm that gets bigger and faster all the time.

I suggest talking to Mitsuku Chatbot. She is the smartest A.I. I have met.

You can find her at http://www.mitsuku.com -- but please be nice to her. She's a friend of mine.

If I go down that rabbithole I see myself trying to decipher algorhitms through conversation.

Interesting to get into I suppose, not sure if I should isolate myself from society for days, lol. Worth a try eventually though ^^

AI is indeed an interest of mine as well. I think the world needs a new view of a robot in the same way Apple gave the world a new view of a personal computer in the home. The problem is how to implement it so that they are truly intelligent, and how to treat the new digital, sentient beings properly. Such questions are raised at the beginning of A.I. and in Star Trek: The Next Generation S2, E9 "The Measure of a Man" when Data was put in a hearing.

I think if we resolve problems in those two areas, we will be able to enter a truly autonomic era of computing.

How are people with Aspergers viewing 'artificial intelligence' technologies as an advantage?

The technology could be weaponized and used against the neurotypicals.

Why would we want to do that?

Also, what is accomplished by calling them neurotypicals? Why not just call them non-Aspies? That is accurate, without being needlessly judgmental.

I'm still rationalizing, but the phrasing of the question demanded the response.
