It may be immoral but if a person goes to be a test subject and signs the consent form the testers are relatively fault free no matter what happens including accidental death. There are human guinea pig experiments where they will cut out pieces of you as long as you sign the consent forms.

But why would they AI a destructive person?

Thoom said...

Because the researchers don't know his true identity.

So you're saying they can't id an well known deadly anarchist nor once they are choosing a person they don't psych test him properly? Last thing an AI scientist would want is the public thinking he was creating a way for Hitler to live again.

Thoom said...

That character in question isn't a psychopath or a sociopath. He dedicated his life to bringing down corrupt institutions and finding justice for the poor. He had a nervous breakdown because his friends and family were killed. He went off the radar after the breakdown and (newly added) was thought dead. He's not evil, and he doesn't want to be destructive.

Thought you said he was deadly.

Okay, we should have probably gone over this in the first place but what kind of world is it? Is it a realistic to our world world, is it a cartoonish world, is it a factual but convenient world? And what's the time, near future or present? What's the political structure?
