New neurophysiological evidence suggests humans feel empathy for robots.

Participants were shown a picture of a humanoid robot hand and a human hand in a painful situation, e.g. a cut from a knife. An electroencephalograph showed the brain potentials of the participants. The changes in potentials were similar for the human and robotic hand. A slight difference in the potentials was seen during the beginning of the empathic process, with a weaker reading for the robot hand during the ascending P3 phase (350-500ms after stimulus presentation). The difference disappeared during the descending P3 phase (500-650ms). The difference could be due to humans not being able to think from the perspective of the robot as easily as from their fellow human.

Is it silly to feel empathy for electronic circuits?
>>
Because retards can't make that distinction and associate it with actual people who were in those situations, while disregarding the fact that those robots are contextually the same with your calculator.
>>
>>7644383
The electronic circuits are made to resemble people. Why the fuck wouldn't you feel empathy for a sentient humanoid? HOW CAN YOU BE THIS RETARDED?

>feeling empathy for 0's and 1's.
>>
>>7644383
wow someone actually wasted time and resources carrying out this study
>>
>>7644458
Only a robot would see 0's and 1's where humans see image of a human.

Wow, people were feel sympathy for non-human object since beginning of literature.

If you look at any robotic device and see anything but a soulless machine, you are weak and delusional. Of course it's silly to feel empathy for electronic circuits.

Remember those 4-legged robots that were all over facebook and the internet earlier this year? And the video where the guy kicks it and it balances itself? I saw so many people on facebook expressing sympathy and it made me fucking sick. "Awww, he kicked it". So the fuck what? It's not alive. It doesn't understand that you kicked it, and that kicking is a violent act among our society. It just felt the mechanical disruption and corrected itself so it didn't fall over. Big fucking deal.

Fuck robots.

Do you feel empathy when you watch your animu? Or when you read a book, or watch a movie? If you don't feel empathy for these thing nor for robots then you're obviously a psychopath incapable of feeling empathy.
>>
>>7644383
>New neurophysiological evidence
This has been obvious since the days of early automata. It's been obvious since we painted the first face on some object or cave wall.

Don't fall into this emerging bad habit of saying things are new or profound when they really aren't.

>Is it silly to feel empathy for electronic circuits?
It is if you think it is, it's not if you don't.

>Only a robot would see 0's and 1's where humans see image of a human.
Only a human would see electrical impulses and neurons deciding which inputs to close and which to listen to.

Depends on the robot, OP.

Usually, robots are nothing but electronically programmed motors designed to do specific specific tasks at the will of a administrator or set conditions.

If you get a little more creative to the point where it's programmed (under admin or set conditions) to look and act like a human, (which it will never actually be since it has no genuine human brain) then if the observer is so retarded and sympathetic towards non-living things, maybe they will get a feel.

Most rational humans on the other hand will not sympathize for a robot.

Humans are emotional idiots, whose feelings have a bad habit of undermining their logic and rationality.

An ASI will have a field day with us.

Emotions keep us alive, pal.

I wonder how infants or toddlers would respond to human or animal like machines.
>>
>>7644383

they don't

see that robot thing that got trashed in philly

>>7645470
>Nothing more human than the will to survive
>The species with individuals deliberately killing themselves the most
If anything, our viciousness pales in comparison to other species. It just looks more intense and disgusting because of the way our's tends to work.

>>7645493
They also allow people to reason. Anyone who's experienced prolonged lack of any emotion knows how braindead you become. The bridges you're trying to use to access a given function, and those that verify it, are all unavailable or scrambled. You're stripped of intuitive understanding, and contrary to what people tend to expect, forcing the conscious mind to deal with everything leads to more frequently erroneous results.

A toddler is human thus it will have the ability to decide for itself.
>>
>>7644383
No shit. Why would that be surprising? If you form a bed sheet into the shape of the contours of a person, you could strike fear into the hearts of many little kids. Our brains are wired to feel empathy to all organic life. Naturally, it helps to have a good mental picture of what might be going on in the mind of potential prey/predators or friends/enemies. It's a survival trait passed down from before mankind had it's own species and it won't disappear just because it's made of silicon.

i bet you're the type of fag that thinks he can beat polygraphs by putting a thumbtack in your shoe
>>
>>7645498
Americans are not human beings, they don't experience empathy. The robot made it across Europe and Canada just fine.
>>
>>7645537
I bet you're the type of idiot who thinks polygraphs can detect deception.
>>
>>7645511
Do you think toddlers can choose whether or not to empathize with humans or whether to believe they are living or not?

Sociopaths will have a useful purpose. We can have military units made up of them to go into combat against humanoid robots.

so edgy

How does it even relate to anything ? Don't just shitpost to shitpost, atleast have a point or something.
>>
>>7645612
They shoot it like it's a porno and act like they're about to fuck the thing afterwards.

Also, who decided to put human eyelashes on the thing and have extensive time intervals of blinking?
>>

haha, fucking edgelord.
>>
>>7644474
this

it's obvious that people can't help but feel empathy for anything and everything that is anthropomorphized
