Modelling Cognitive Development

No.13438459 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I argue that cognitive development can be modelled using a logistic function. Thoughts? Do note that the ages from 0-5 are deceiving, since the cognitive development fraction of a 5 year old in this logistic function is over 100 times larger than that of a newborn. Interesting is the rapid spike on the onset of puberty, where I set the midpoint of 50% development to be at the age of 12.5: the onset of puberty.

Alien robot cognition general I guess? (without transfer of consciousness thing)

No.13442515 ViewReplyOriginalReport
There's something I'm really interested in /sci/.

Imagine, there's a self-sustaining civilization of robots. What would this civilization be like? Would they always necessarily revert to stereotypical action-reaction? Imagine, every one of them is able to replicate and/or repair other robots and is programmed to do so... this promotes so many questions and ideas, I don't even know where to begin.

TL;DR section:

What could happen in such a "society"? What kind of engineering would they have? Would errors, regardless of tech level, breed them into repetitive tasks? If they replicate errors, would they eventually just become non-functional, or could there be errors that cause erratic behavior that make them dangerous or unpredictable in their actions? Actually I hadn't considered this before typing that, but also, how dangerous would they be regardless of their programming, for example, would we ever approach such technology when we do not know how they store charges and probably have eroded and might contain dangerous chemicals?

How much of a malicious/predatory threat would they be? Could we hope to negotiate with them? If they did become very intelligent to the point that they become a true civilization with its own culture, would this culture resemble ours? Mainly, I want to imagine a bizarre, alien robot whose thoughts have evolved entirely different than might be expected of different forms of life, yet maintain a functional existence and intelligent near or greater than our own. They've been programmed to sustain and "improve" themselves over time.

OK, you get the idea; Intelligent space alien robot race made by space aliens and left alone to replicate, improve, and repair themselves over time on their own with or without errors, but assuming they manage to still exist, develop culture, etc. What do you think they could be like and/or what would be an interesting way for them to be? Oh, and of course this all assumes aliens even exist etc

So when is the mass dying supposed to start ?
it's getting increasingly hard to hold the anti mRNA vaccine position against vaxxed normies and increasing government restrictions
vaxxed aren't mass dying, they are not even sic, so holding claims that mRNA vaccines are dangerous are looking more and more false
are these actually safe ?

Have you made peace with the fact that you are too stupid and ignornat to have a say on anything?

You are no different from these people, you have no knoweledge, no understanding, all you have is trivia. And worst you are not ashamed of your ignorance, you have no qualms about stating that "the Universe' expands" but when push comes to shove you couldn't derive the Einestein field equations to actually prove your claim. And even if you could derive said equations you couldn't interpret them.
All your knoweledge boils down to "well I know this is true becasue other people told me it's true".

Catgirls or Gynoids?

No.13440200 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Everyone loves to meme about genetically engineered catgirls/furries/kobolds for domestic ownership, but I haven't heard of any major advances in genetic engineering in the normie news.

Likewise, gynoids technically exist but they're too expensive and impractical for the average person (and they look like shit).

Is there any reason to expect either one will be viable in the next 10-20 years?
