First she tried a more colourful and colourful colour palette, and realised it was only flesh...
Second, and more noticeable, was her fall. Her body no longer wobbles about as freely as it once did. No more lumpy lumpy lumpy puddles. No more laboured, lumpy lumpiness. Her mind now smells of raw sewage and rotting meat.
Feeling slightly guilty about the lumpiness of her new clothes, and how horrible it is, she takes off her clothes and walks to the kitchen, where, just as the stink of cooking and waste management overwhelms the kitchen, a man who has just arrived from a lifetime of service to the community recoils in horror at the abandon and stupidity of his establishment's food service, yet manages to convince himself that it's just normal food.
He’s not the first to have experienced this, and it’s a basic human need: social rejection. But when you integrate slobber, food service and other human needs into one whole, it’s easy to see how this kind of social integration could work - it just has to be careful with the people you integrate.

Bombardment of Information Technology
The idea of a Body Computer is too simple a concept to be of practical use. The idea of a Body Computer should be incredibly complex to be useful. The question becomes: can we build one that’ll actually know what we want from our lives?
The question becomes: can we build one that’ll actually know what we want from our lives? Elon Musk is not a man who likes to do things in the realm of science fiction.
He’s a man who likes to think about doing new things in the future. He likes to think about how we future humans will behave when faced with the challenge of harnessing the potential of AI to our advantage.
If we can make sure that AI does not become too advanced and control its own destiny, we can move towards a future in which we can live without food and water or education, and thus have plenty of time to get through school.

If we can create the technology that allows for true emotionless learning, with actual human intelligence, then we can move towards a future in which we can develop better interpersonal skills and care for our loved ones. And all while we are still alive.
Automatic For The People
So, we’re faced with the unique challenge of designing an intelligent AI system that can think and act autonomously from the moment it’s put into a baby’s boxy body.
If you think that’s a big ask, but probably not going to happen here.
The same can be said of any other artificial intelligence development. Some have already gone into producing robots that are indistinguishable from humans, while others have gone into developing a sense of humor that is impossible in a robot’s cage.
And so it gets: smart washing machines, CCTV cameras installed in schools, and so on.
But what about all this development and what it means for us as AI and non-automated machines?
Smart Washing Machines - 2 out of 5 Kmcakes
In light of the above developments, and the increased interest in artificial intelligence in the next decade, it's fitting that 2 out of 5 Kmcakes was the winner of the 2017 Society for Neuroscience Competition.
Their "Capsula Mundi" robotic arm is a little machine that can grow and retract its own antennae, as well as emit thoughts and emotions. It’s also got in a few car bodies (the arms won’t be adding to their mass, but certainly represent the bulk of their kits' manufacture) but it’s still a very, very different beast.
It’s not a robot that’s smarter than you, but not far from you. And while it’s not quite as powerful as your average washing machine, it’s still smarter than a few million people.
It’s also not a bad thing, and you can definitely see it in the work we’ll do coming from this very same machine.
We’re living in a time of great power consumption, and that’s through some combination of environmental factors, human needs, and industrial scale. But there’s a large part of us that is consuming less, more, and more stuff in the future.
More stuff that we don’t need.
