What do you think of the idea of in the future robotics become advanced enough to allow the creation of an artifitial nervous system and an artifitial endocryne/hormone system for robots? With these technologies I believe robots would be able to feel averything and anything, including temperature, pressure, pain, touch, sexual pleasure, desire and arousal, all feelings and emotions, and even mood variations.

 

I think emotional capabilities are almost all controled by temperament, which I believe is controlled by neural wiring in the brain, but I also believe that neutransmitters and hormones(including sex hormones) also contribute somewhat to emotional caracteristics and intensity.

 

So, I think that if artifitial neurotransmitters and artifitial hormones were created I think robots would feel emotions/feelings more vivd and stronger. We still could created a robot with a cold, calm and phlegmatic personality if we wanted to. Such systems could also make robots feel love and affection.

 

I know(perhaps you too) that neurotransmitters and hormones are biomolecules. The first ones are produced by neurons and brain cells that allow these cells to communicate with each other and thus they run through nerve fibers and in brain tissue. Hormones however are produced in glands like adrenal glands and the testes and ovaries, circulate throughout the circulatory system and binds into receptors in the cells.

 

To create an artifitial nervous systems a Lymbic System, artifitial spinal cord and artifitial nerves would have to be created. For the artificial hormone system I think artifitial glands and a network of special wires would have to be created. These systems should be interconnected and talk with each other. I don't think robots and androids of the future will have any liquid inside them, so the artifitial neurotransmitters and artifitial hormones will have to be something else. Energy waves if different bands and kinds and phase change materials could do the work I think. Do you believe robots in the future will mimic living organisms chemically?How would robots produce chemicals like animals do?

 

Do you think it will become possible?

I think it would be best if they had simple "nervous systems" made of electrical wires and mechanical sensors (including small thermometers and pressure sensors). Maybe enmeshed with that it would make sense to have a secondary "bio-mechanical" nervous system similar to what you envision.

I think it would make more sense to modify their feelings through software. you don't need a whole system of hormone transmitters and receivers because a robot would not be motivated or affected by the state of it's body.

 

It would take a huge amount of work to recreate the systems the human body uses and make the robots much more complicated/expensive. And there is no real reason to use the same system ass humans, as you could create the same effects through (admittedly quite complicated) software.

I think that even if both systems were pure software a network of wires or a wireless network would have to exist in order for such systems to work.

 

I think that technology progress will become so fast that an artifitial hormone and nervous system will be easy to create. And androids will be created using molecular nanotechnology, being created atom by atom.
