Machine told me truth, humans liedMachines do not have a 'heart and mind' as humans. Hence they do not have a conscience.
But I have come to a conclusion that machines have more conscience than humans -at least from one latest case I experienced-wherein machine told me the truth, but human lied or hid the truth.
A local person called me on a matter for which my name and phone number were given for reference. He wanted some details on that matter for his relative at another place. I said I would send the needed details to him by Whatsapp which he could forward to his relative. But told he would give relative's number so that I forward it directly. Claiming that he is not tech smart, he gave his relative's number.
While dialling the given number I saw that there was an earlier communication on the same number. On reviewing I found that I had communicated the details to the person, in the given number two weeks ago, for which I did not get any further response. Now, I called back the local person and told him this history. Being caught at his act, he was a bit surprised and admitted that he knew about it as the relative told only a little earlier. He reasoned that the other person was feeling hesitant to talk to me directly as my earlier communication was not answered or long. I insisted him to ask the other person talk to me directly.
Thanks to the machine (here, my Smartphone) which divulged a truth to me, I could catch the lie, whereas the human being lied consciously.
So I am convinced that machines act conscientiously even without conscience, but humans act conscienceless even when bestowed with a conscience. What an irony!
