Interests
It’s weird to know that we’ll see AI driven machines within the next two decades. Maybe even the humanoid automatons of science fiction.
It’s all being taken very seriously by certain parties. Some scientists have approached the UN and asked for the issue to be addressed in a more formal capacity, with a hope that laws against these machines taking certain roles will be put in place. Specifically “killer robots”. They don’t want to see a machine deciding when it’s right to pull the trigger.

That concern is perfectly understandable, but there’s another that is less touched on: are robots getting too cute?

www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-…

Robots that look like cute animals, or big-eyed children are designed to evoke a nurturing instinct in people. There are worries that this will have a negative impact on social interaction within society, with the people that rely on them, such as the elderly, preferring them over actual people.

Personally, I’m hoping such machines exist when (or if) I hit old age. I like the thought of having SOMETHING watching over me that has the capacity to call for help if I cannot. We’re not all zombies because of television and texting hasn’t eradicated verbal communication. I doubt a robotic helper will cause the downfall of society. 


My rants when tech fails on me may make me sound like a Luddite from time to time, but I find the relentless advancement of science incredibly exciting. All I think when I read articles about robots is “Cool! Can we choose what they look like? How much will it cost to get my robot housecleaner to look like Morrigun from ABC warriors?”

I've been meaning to ask you a question Jack, You may have already answered ages ago but, what did you think of Fable 3? A lot of people were saying it hurt or even ruined the Fable franchise because it was really bad. Me personally, i did have much to say about it really. I mean, it was a Fable game. It was pretty much what i expected it to be. Mostly short and sweet but still a fairly worth while title if you can ignore the fact that you can beat it in about 3 sit downs. Take that for what you will.

Well, I guess tracing can be helpful to some degree. It can keep you motivated and happy with the creative process on early stages, and perhaps help in developing fine motor control (as you said yourself: "I spent ages getting the linework just right").

But. Anyone who traces someone else's art and sells it as his/her own is a gigantic shower bag and anything but an artist. Just a dumb criminal. (At least nowadays; before the copyright era it was a common practice to rip off other artists' creations. Just compare the "And with His stripes we are healed" chorus from Handel's "Messiah" to "Kyrie" from Mozart's Requiem...)

Much like The Boulder, I feel conflicted. Liking Gearboy and Jollyjack I find it hard to pick a side of support or cheering. Can't we all just look at the boobs in peace?

Someone is stealing/tracing your art and might even be making money from it: vanillup.tumblr.com/post/10050…
