Digital Companions and the limits of the person
The relationship between a Companion and a person will become increasingly problematic as Companion technology improves and as models of users become increasingly sophisticated, and the simple dichotomies that make the Turing Test so plausible as a means of determining intelligence will become harder to maintain. As with any kind of content-storing technology, such as writing, or in more recent years laptops, the amount and quality of cognition that a human can ‘export’ to these outside technologies is significant. The ‘person’ or ‘agent’ can be seen as an extended system including the technologies as well as the human, in which the technologies, among other things, can help in the extension of trust towards the human.
