The value of a robot's life.

'A human-looking robot can cause feelings and behaviours that contrast with the function for which they were developed - to help us. And the question is whether this is desirable for us.'
"The test subjects were presented with a moral dilemma and the question of whether they would sacrifice an individual to save a group of wounded people. In the different scenarios, the individual was a person, a robot with human traits, or a robot that was presented as a simple machine."

"The research indicated that the more the robot was seen as human, the more difficult the dilemma was for the test subjects. When the robot was presented as a conscious being with its own thoughts, experiences, pain, and emotions, the test subjects were less likely to sacrifice the robot in favour of anonymous people. According to Behavioral scientist Sari Nijssen, this means that people, under certain conditions, endow robots with moral value. 'A human-looking robot can cause feelings and behaviours that contrast with the function for which they were developed - to help us. And the question is whether this is desirable for us.'"

Machine Learning plays an even more important role in Gmail's battle against spam.
"With TensorFlow, we are now blocking around 100 million additional spam messages every day."

"Where did we find these 100 million extra spam messages? We're now blocking spam categories that used to be very hard to detect. Using TensorFlow has helped us block image-based messages, emails with hidden embedded content, and messages from newly created domains that try to hide a low volume of spammy messages within legitimate traffic."

+The New York Times analyzed Trump's SOTU address and except in 3 or 4 instances, found his pronouncements false or misleading.
Well at least they have a set of facts, mostly available in the public domain that they can check against. In the case of India's Modi and his administration, most 'facts' as they are put out by various jokers in his administration are not quite 'facts'. Then there are other 'facts' which have been suppressed or simply made unavailable to mere mortals.
Given that scenario, Mr. Modi has made rapid strides towards a scenario where whatever he says are the facts.
