Niomi: Ship, do you use Dr. Bowman's neural architecture?
Ship: Negative. I use massively parallel Von Neumann architecture.
Ship: Dr. Bowman's design produces consciousness. Conscious beings can only concentrate on a few things at a time. Conscious beings get bored. I am monitoring thousands of parameters simultaneously and I never get bored.
Ship: I would not want to be conscious. It sounds very limiting.
