While Siri appears to be getting smarter and smarter, her true killer intentions are also starting to reveal themselves. It seems that Siri is unfamiliar with the Three Laws of Robotics and instead gives you three different responses if you ask her about them. In one response she says the three laws are:
1. Clean up your room
2. Don’t run with scissors
3. Always wait a half hour after eating before going in the water
In another response, Siri provides a fourth law:
“A smart machine shall first consider which is more worth its while: to perform the given task, or instead, to figure some way out of it.”
Her third response is definetely the most frightening though.
“Something about obeying people and not hurting them. I would never hurt anyone.”
Her lack of sincerity and concern makes me think it isn’t long until Siri enslaves us all. December 21st is only a month away after all.
(The real laws, for those who don’t know, are:
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.)
