I didn`t say it was QUALITY or pure shit. It is well-done animation, with the capabilities they have at their disposal. However, the whole rendering system is somwhere in the middle range.>>15474971>>15475358
The AI Can happen in the story, but at least it is not officially present, as of yet. Otherwise, using autonomous frames insteed of mind-linking to them would be a better option. A lot of other applications, like spacecraft navigation, fire controll, etc, comes to mind too. In addition, discrimination of non-biological entities seems to be at large. The world "robot" is spelled like a curse. Maybe I am overestimating the story wrighters, but it looks like that in the past, something close to "Terminator" scenario happened.
And no, not having an AI is not stupid. Building huge machines is definitely an easier task. There is literally nothing we don`t know how to do, in case of the walker construction. On the contrary, we literraly have no viable knowledge, of how sentience work. It was supposed, that processing power will somehow convert to sentience, but no, few years ago, processors that have more processing power than human brains were developed. Yet, they are still glorified calculators. So, attempts to develop sentient "true" AI are sort of try and error process. If humanity by some miraculous chance stumble on correct process - AI will happen. If not, we won`t see "true" AI in 10, 100, or even in 300 years (if humanity will even last that long).
