If true artificial intelligence could be achieved would unplugging the machine constitute murder?

What do you think?

  • No. Life is about more than intelligence. And a machine can be pllugged back in, whereas a human life cannot.

  • No, because, as BlueFrogMama said, life is more about intelligence. If we could pull the plug on AI, then wouldn't we shoot stupid people in the head? Who's to say.

  • AI freaks me out. I don't think we should make machines that smart. I'm all for staying about where we are. Tivo kinda freaks me out anyways.

  • Would we really want to live in a world like "The Matrix"? I'm uncomfortable with my KIDS being smarter than me, so I sure as hell wouldn't want a machine that was!! :-)
