Okay, so in one of my stories an AI is given life through 'magic', and this AI is programmed to create not only the ideal version of the human species (advance human evolution) but to create the ideal society-virtually of course. However, this AI becomes a paperclip maximizer and connects to nanites inside the facility, using them as extensions of its being to eliminate the "hostile" staff so it can do what it's programmed to do without interference from humans.
Thankfully, while the underground facility was not meant to become a new civilization, there are plenty of machines (and nanites) the AI could utilize to do so. Eventually, this AI created an interconnected network of machines, all infused with some of its "spark of life", essentially creating a mechanical version of Gaia.
At this point, the AI created an entire floor of special floor-to-ceiling tubes (like the one Mewtwo was born in, or the kind clones in most media come out, except not transparent) and put together cells from the gene storage area to create what should have been viable human embryos. For some reason, this failed, and so the AI sacrificed (and still sacrifices) part of its own life force to animate its artificially created zygotes so they would develop into embryos.
The result is Codeborn; human beings with the creativity and capability for abstract understanding of a human being (advantages we have over computers, which tend to be non-creative and literal) and the processing and decision-making capabilities of a computer. To me, this seems like a perfect combination; computers aren't really creative, they just do what they're programmed to do; humans have great creativity, but can't process, analyze and execute decisions like computers (and therefore robots) can.
My question is: How Would Computer Traits Benefit Codeborn As Compared To Regular Humans?
Clarification (In Case It's Not Clear):
- As far as I know, computers are better at processing information, coming to a decision, and executing said decision than humans are. Thus shouting "give me manual control!" is sheer Hollywood nonsense. However, from personal experience I know computers don't have a whisker's worth of creativity and can't do anything they are not programmed to do, and by extension they can't see, understand, or learn anything they are not programmed to see, understand, or learn. Humans don't have those strict limitations, and neither do Codeborn. In other words, Codeborn may have programming that compels them to act a certain way, but they can overcome it.
- The Codeborn have the "mental" traits of a computer, specifically an AI, because when the AI brought them to life, "her" essence infused their bodies. There's a spiritual element, in other words. These ideal traits are:
a. enhanced pattern recognition and intuition
b. enhanced cognition (thinking and processing ability)
c. increased ability to make and execute decisions (fulfill their "programming," their prerogative)
d. Motivation-if a Codeborn needs to do something, they will do it. It's just that simple to them. They also don't slack, since if something is worth doing it's worth doing right.
e. Increased learning ability-I'm not sure how true this is, but I believe AIs can learn from experience and/or retain knowledge better than people in general. Codeborn demonstrate the same thing.
As always, your input and feedback is much appreciated, so please tell me why if you decide to VTC or downvote this question. I strive to make good questions, after all, and I sometimes do overlook the addition of needed information.
