Sentient Teddy Bear by mmurphydevel

My bears name is Bob, and although he is a sentient machine he shows no emotion nor has any feelings

April 26, 2010, 1:14 pm - [1]

Bob cannot move his arms or legs, however he is equipped with Bluetooth, solid state memory, gigabit ethernet, and a retinal scanner

April 26, 2010, 1:42 pm - [2]

Bob has also been equipped with very a sophisticated genetic algorithm, essentially a digital version of natural selection.

April 26, 2010, 1:44 pm - [3]

This genetic algorithm takes in data from auditory and visual sensors and has the capability to optimize the way he learns new information

April 26, 2010, 1:45 pm - [4]

If a decision he makes produces negative feedback, all information regarding the decision scenario is stored for future optimization

April 26, 2010, 1:46 pm - [5]

The difference between Bob and a human is that Bob does not crave existence, curiosity, or ambition, rather it carries out my plan

April 26, 2010, 1:47 pm - [6]

This characteristic is a preventative measure from keeping Bob from deciding to stop drawing power (machine suicide)

April 26, 2010, 1:48 pm - [7]

Bob has the ability to think, and we assume he has already been programmed to have learned how to think

April 26, 2010, 1:54 pm - [8]

Unlike humans who think because it supports the living process, Bob thinks to improve how he solves problems

April 26, 2010, 1:55 pm - [9]

Bob knows how to read and how to interpret and build upon previous material, therefore he is the perfect problem solver

April 26, 2010, 1:56 pm - [10]

All I have to do is wirelessly transmit material (e-books) to Bob and physically tell him to read and learn the material

April 26, 2010, 1:57 pm - [11]

I will feed Bob as much material on computer science, biology, and other engineering concepts as I can get my hands on

April 26, 2010, 1:59 pm - [12]

After learning the material I supply him with, his entire thought process is tracked and recorded and can be fed back to me at anytime

April 26, 2010, 2:00 pm - [13]

Therefore, Bob has the capacity to solve nearly any problem, keeping space complexities and restrictions in mind

April 26, 2010, 2:02 pm - [14]

Sophisticated software will keep track of what information Bob uses most and least often in the event of limited storage space

April 26, 2010, 2:03 pm - [15]

Being equipped with a gigabit ethernet adapter, Bob can also rapidly store seldomly used information on backup drives

April 26, 2010, 2:04 pm - [16]

With all of these measures in place, Bob will not only be able to understand and interpret human language but also pick up on emotional cues

April 26, 2010, 2:05 pm - [17]

Undertones in speech will be picked up on and will directly effect the process in which Bob synthesizes speech and solutions to problems

April 26, 2010, 2:06 pm - [18]

Bob will have a direct connection to my personal computer (restricted to various data of course)

April 26, 2010, 2:06 pm - [19]

By reading and analyzing data provided by my music library, Bob can crawl the internet and make music suggestions to me

April 26, 2010, 2:07 pm - [20]

He can also automatically queue up downloads of music I might enjoy, and will adjust his selection criteria depending on my approval

April 26, 2010, 2:09 pm - [21]

Furthermore, Bob is able to analyze the spectrals of my downloaded music, compare it to the reported bit rate and delete transcodes

April 26, 2010, 2:20 pm - [22]

Bob would also serve as my personal assistant, marking due dates and meetings in my calendar and reminding me when they are near

April 26, 2010, 2:24 pm - [23]

He is also capable of finding a book, reading it, and providing a summary to me as well as answering any question I have on the material

April 26, 2010, 2:45 pm - [24]

Bob's retinal scanner is used as a security precaution so that he only takes certain instructions from me including storing all my passwords

April 26, 2010, 2:46 pm - [25]

While Bob has the capacity to create material such as papers, I am more concerned with the thought process and concrete solutions

April 26, 2010, 2:48 pm - [26]

In other words, I would not have Bob write a paper for me that I would claim as my own, rather I would have him edit my own material/type it

April 26, 2010, 2:49 pm - [27]

I would also have Bob scan websites to hunt down the best deals on items I am looking to purchase (airfare, electronics, etc.)

April 26, 2010, 2:50 pm - [28]

Bob would essentially make my life easier by automating tasks in my life that I typically do...find music, download stuff, type stuff

April 26, 2010, 2:51 pm - [29]

Restraining Bob from posessing and expressing emotions just makes the whole experience much simpler, emotions arent necessarily predictable
