Clicky

They haven't quite gotten it yet, but they claim that they will. Not that they might, but that they will get it.

I'm amazed that we're that much closer to really understanding how life works, but something about this is just...odd.

Let there be discussion.

they still have thousands of lifeforms on earth to discover too, but yeah the idea of artificial life is very interesting

think about how many things 20 years ago they said they would be able to do or have now. They will probably never really create real AI. It will always be a program that doesn't fully think on its own.

You obviously didn't read it.

It's not artificial intelligence.

It's artificial life.

It will be possible. Scientific progress is being made at an incredibly fast pace.

Wouldn't that be crazy if one day we go back to using animals more than machines to do certain kinds of work? Think about it, if we could engineer the perfect animal to move a bunch of crap like a bulldozer does, they'd be cheaper, easier to use, and easier to move. And what if we could engineer a big animal that can run 70 mph with a full load of trashed cars!?! And instinctively follows traffic laws down to the T!!!!
We're only strays.

Well, that's interesting . . . . . . . .

^ hmm thats only a couple 1000 years into the future if even by then. I don't think it is as close as they make it seem, considering that they think it took bills of years to get us from those starting cells.

Although that's probably more than just a few years away, that's an interesting concept.

Even though now all I can think of is the Flinstones.

I was hoping this would be about Operation Ivy...

And how much do you think they'd eat?

Like we've got so much spare.

Someone in another thread claimed GM crops drained the land quicker, but I don't know how valid that was.

I'm pretty sure that isn't true. Plenty of well-respected organizations have agreed that GM crops are harmless. They also allow countless more to be fed.

My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.
