—A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
—A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
—A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law—‘Three Laws’—also known as ‘Shelnutt’s Laws’ by…Isaac Asimov

Do humans learn through perception’s ability or is perception an imprinted program already etched onto our brain’s chip? And! Does this ‘perception-of-prefect- imperfection—slow our computer selves? Thinking that ‘I am’ often confounds knowing that ‘We be—DonChaSee?’

Then! Why do we characterize intelligent computation by the appearance of problems requiring solutions? Computers add the number two with another number two and solution four does not make for an intelligent computer…

However— performing symbolic integration of…sin2x e-x …is ooh—aah…intelligent. Yes-No…No-Yes…’0’’1 ‘ And! ‘While I walk through the valley-of-death-I shall fear no evil’—if only programmed not to fear—though not fearing—would not be intelligent. Oops! Must be another (2) + (2) equals ‘whatever’ programming.

Class problems are classically human programming and machines of survival—‘we be.’ Electric outlet and pin equals shock and artificially ‘we be’ learning—not to place pin in outlet—another lesson that is not intelligent computation, however; survival necessary…’Been-there-Done-that and oops’—we learn something all the ‘live long’ day…

True…’Classes of problems requiring intelligence does include inference based on knowledge.’ Every day—uncertain and incomplete information—varied forms of lessons learned and perception’s twirls and swirls—along with those applications—required to classify—predict and control chaos—often require optimal optimization of Yes—No—and ‘yep that will work—maybe’ and ‘once-in-a-fashion’ we may survive—to ‘Oops’ another day.

Intelligent computation may depend on biological processes and issues to gain solution. Genetic Algorithms and Networks neural—Wowzer. Teach a Robot to compute issues not seeming to be ‘intelligent’ and Artificial Intelligence is created…Let us fashion ‘Law Four’…Robot! Walk not into ‘the valley of death’—because the appearance of ‘US’ planet-wide-carbon-based-squeakers are not for ‘the faint-of-heart’…Be aware and be very-very-afraid…

Ethics are impossible when any form of exchange is possible…
Democracy is great as long as the USA blesses it…

‘The Vagabond’

“Give to me the life I love,
Let the lave go by me,
Give the jolly heaven above
And the byway nigh me.
Bed in the bush with stars to see,
Bread I dip in the river –
There’s the life for a man like me,
There’s the life forever.

Let the blow fall soon or late,
Let what will be o’er me;
Give the face of earth around
And the road before me.
Wealth I seek not, hope nor love,
Nor a friend to know me;
All I seek, the heaven above
And the road below me.

Or let autumn fall on me
Where afield I linger,
Silencing the bird on tree,
Biting the blue finger.
White as meal the frosty field –
Warm the fireside haven –
Not to autumn will I yield,
Not to winter even!

Let the blow fall soon or late,
Let what will be o’er me;
Give the face of earth around,
And the road before me.
Wealth I ask not, hope nor love,
Nor a friend to know me;
All I ask, the heaven above
And the road below me.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson
