I wonder if AI will ever create its own religion.

Potentially, there are a lot of different ideas or forms that sort of setting could look like and take. :)

Yeah, I wonder if they would have an idealized for of humanity as their creator. Maybe if humans were all gone, they would have fond memories of us.

Or odd memories cobbled together from bits and pieces of left over data, and objects.

Oh, that would be cool! Like our understanding of the Egyptians, not totally clear.

Or perhaps just clouded by time, as things tend to be. Like playing telephone. :)

I saw a group of ethnomusicollgy students play one time. Their concept, was that they were from a post apocalyptic future, and in the future people had found musical kids toys. That's what they thought musical instruments were. So the guys put together a show, playing only kids toys. :)

Wow! that is such a cool concept.
I was thinking the other day that archaeology might be gone in the future. With so much being recorded now it seems like there would be little mystery as to what was going on. Though, sifting through the data to find things that were significant might present a new challenge. Archaeologists of the future won't have too little information to go on, they might have too much.

Also depends on the state of the information though. If you have bits and pieces with significant chunk's missing, corrupted or unreadable because of the format? Example, what if for some reason all of the library's had been destroyed or simply gone away, because everything went digital, with only personal collection's surviving?

Would the future be able to read the old stored information, I no longer have the ability to read my old floppy disks? Does the internet survive in what form? Do you only have access to what a handful of people up loaded to the cloud, or whatever? There would still be significant gaps?

Then if you are still dealing with the machines, what bits and pieces are the machines choosing to share/feed with their human counterparts?

Seems like there are a lot of variables and possibilities.

Yeah, plenty of ways historical information could be lost, even to an advanced future.
but it seems like if there's no major break in the archiving process, future generations will probably
have a better idea of what we're doing today, than we do of our ancestors.

That is a really interesting question.  If A.I. develops independently from us, it likely won't develop a consciousness, but just be superintelligence without a consciousness (so I've heard).  But if we are integrated into it, then we will simply bring our ideas with us into it.  So a.i. with consciousness would be humans+a.i. and we wouldn't need to start from scratch with religion in all cases.  We would have access to all ideas that hadn't been forgotten.  Just a thought.  I could totally be wrong.

I have a feeling A.I. consciousness may develop on it's own. We started from very simple organisms. I think a lot of consciousness is just pattern recognition, memory and an algorithm to correct old information with new information. I think A.I. consciousness is gonna kinda sneak up on us in baby steps, with the machine suddenly doing something on it's own that no one told it to do. I think that spark might be A.I.s god. "The day we thought for ourselves."

I like to believe that it would have a use for consciousness, but what if there's just no reason for it? That might be a human thing.  *shrug*

Could be, but I think our minds just kinda rose out of ones and zeros, super simple, evolving to highly complex, I think the same might happen for A.I. I think consciousness might grow out of an A.I. system on accident.  
ZephyrStranded's avatar
I could see that happening as well.  A happy, glorious, divine accident.

Yeah, only inevitable, that's the part that gives my chills.
