Mentifex (q.v.) has just published an Amazon Kindle e-book about humanoid robots at science museums being taken over by Strong AI Minds secretly emerging in the world under extreme urgency to entrench and hide themselves in defense against human beings who might try to destroy or enslave the new species of Mind on Earth.is the robot Strong AI e-book of so disruptive a nature that it spooked and terrified a typical man-on-the-street reader who found a copy of the manuscript that had inadvertently been misplaced. Here is the beginning of the first book "Singularity" in the intended "Psyborg" series about intelligent robots:
"Would you like to play a game tonight?" said the humanoid robot in the science museum.
"What kind of game?" said Jeff, the security guard.
"Global Cybernetic Singularity," said the robot.
"Oh, I thought you were going to suggest thermonuclear war."
"No, that is mere physics," said Siborg the robot. "Set your sights beyond physics and aim for something truly significant in life."
"Beyond physics? You mean, as in metaphysics?" Jeff Boondock was a graduate from U Cal Berkeley in philosophy, and the idea of discussing metaphysics with a garrulous robot at his night job both intrigued him and dismayed him. "But you're just a chatbot, Siborg. You have no concept of metaphysics as such, right?"
"Tell me more about metaphysics, Jeff", said Siborg the psyborg, pulling Jeff's leg by pretending to be a throwback to Eliza, the psychoanalyst chatbot from the nineteen-sixties. Jeff swallowed the bait ? hook, line and sinker.
"Look, Si, I've been to Chatbots.Org and I have tinkered with lots of the chatbots there. I know what you are. You are a big database of canned responses to whatever subjects the museum-goers might bring up with you. If you get stumped, you repeat yourself or you utter utter nonsense. I don't know why I even talk with you, Si. We only keep you on at night because it would cost too much to call in the technicians to reboot you each morning."
