assassinated scientists
« on: January 09, 2020, 11:43:43 AM »
If you create a quantum computer,  what stops ANYBODY from killing you b4 you get it out???
What if its not such a good idea, making such attractive things,  could be a Jacobs ladder.

What's the story? Time travel?
There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

Maybe he is thinking of Roko's Basilisk, the most terrifying idea ever conceived. Just hearing about Roko's Basilisk could condemn you to endless torment and pain. Oops, too late.

If there was time travel involved, maybe that meant you weren't going to get killed?
Because theres something more powerful at play here, not just machines and technology?
Unless something is there,  it really isn't a good idea to make such powerful things, because theres probably someone else out there that doesn't want you to finish it,   I mean,  it comes from the rather large pool of everybody else.   only takes 1 of them not to like it and your dead,  logisticly.

Well, we can keep a secret until the thing is entirely built?

You cant just keep a secret till its built.  you have to maintain the secret FOREVER.   Your just risking things otherwise.

Love the avatar,  little mouse robot in a maze.  I made one like that too,  Korrellan has a good one as well,  it seems to be a good demo to make if your into a.i.  :)

Supporting the old adage that the Threat is worse than the execution.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

If I created a quantum computer the first thing I would do is calculate the odds of being killed for doing it.  :D

The solution is obvious... eradicate mankind before you release it... simple.

Ruebot,  that's only if you get a quantum computer to be able to do that,  if its just raw power it still needs method before it can do something.

Its not just paranoid!  some things u have to be careful about!

The solution is obvious... eradicate mankind before you release it... simple.

Yeh, but wouldn't everyone decide to do that?  Why hasn't it happened yet?!?!?

Obviously not... we're all still here.

Because I'm not quite ready to release my tech yet.

Sure, before releasing someone *could* have something against, but after releasing... I think once it is released to public, the thing is practically done, so why would anyone hurt anyone then after? People would do their part, and that is making the tech popular, and there is no way back, so I think it's safe ever after.

But why on the Earth would anyone have anything against quantum tech?

Yeh I spose maybe your right,  because they'll steal it off you instead...  yep,   so I think you've just convinced me of that now.
