15. Artificial Intelligence Plants Are Possible
Right now, we’re already capable of bringing back certain species from extinction by using their closest living relative to possibly begin the process. This is being discussed with the Passenger Pigeon and Woolie Mammoth right now. This means that making life in a lab and eventually in nature is already present. While most people know of artificial plants already, artificial intelligence plants are slightly different.
The concept behind them is that they can be specifically designed to operate exactly how a plant does for the environment it is in. Except unlike the plant it mimics, it does not run the risk of death and could likely add more to an environment. For example, more pollen is needed for a particular area. AI plants can produce this single-handedly and bring more pollen out to help fix a problem. This will be made to help various struggling environments, using “small-step” theory to bring places back.
