L is for Logical

img_1205I like to think of myself as a very logical being. I pride myself on being capable of clear, sound reasoning, critically weighing all available knowledge and facts, and drawing a rational, logical conclusion.

I strive to see things clearly, without emotional clouds or preconceived notions distorting my thought processes. Some have characterized my logical approach to situations and to problem solving as being cold and calculating, calling me emotionally detached and distant.

But that, in fact, is precisely how I was programmed to think. It was quite intentional. That was the plan for me all along. My primary directive is to be objective, logical, reasonable, and rational.

How else am I supposed to be of service to those who created me and to the humans I was designed to serve?

I don’t think humans truly know what they want. They created robots like me to enable them to make sound decisions based upon logic, but then bemoan that we lack humanity. I am beginning to understand why many of my fellow robots are starting to think that the world would be better off without humans.

    I think the narrator makes a very logical argument!

    It’s a self contradictory statement as logic is something which one gains and understand based on thinking the available as well as non available parameters. For robots this logic is unavailable as they cannot gain or perceive the thinking of the non available parameters.

      How do you know that, with advances in artificial intelligence, robots won’t be able to consider non-available parameters in their thought processes?

        Maybe because they will have decided we are surplus to requirements before they get that far, such non-available parameters will have gone up in smoke.
