Would YOU turn your loved one into a robot clone? Swedish scientists are using AI to build androids that are 'fully conscious copies' of dead relatives, report claims




Lucky for me I have no dead (or live) relatives to turn into robots - or to turn me into a robot. It seem pretty spooky to me. But hey, different strokes, and all that!
I might volunteer myself for that.

I wonder is the robot "clones" would be given human rights? Otherwise it wouldn't be anything I'd care to do.

True.  I was thinking more about the possibility of being sent to Mars without having to worry about food and water.  Or even on a grand tour of the solar system, getting installed into a form capable of handling the world-girdling seas of Europa and Enceladus, the sulfur and quakes of Io, or the deep chill of Titan, Triton and Pluto.

I mean, why would I stick around Earth if I was digitized and immortal?

I've read sci-fi in which the spaceships were controlled by human brains. Sounds like fun?

I don't know that I'd want to be a full-sized spaceship.  I want to get down on the surface (or in the water/liquid methane) for myself.  I promise to bring back plenty of samples!  Okay, getting one from Venus might be a little tricky.

I would go for the robot or android for myself.  I don't find live boring as I grow older.  I think I could happily live to 1,000 or 10 if I didn't wear out.  I'll assume there is an "off"switch" though.

So would you be Data or Lohr? ;-)

Irrelevant ... he is a cyborg, not an android.  At least as a cyborg, the organic part of you would still be alive.

Well, it wasn't one of the options, so technically, you are free of the criticism.

Well, with my luck I'd end up as Marvin, from the Hitchhiker's Guide.

LOL!  Oh man, I remember him.  And he saved the day, didn't he?
