Just As Microsoft Released An AI Twitter Bot That Failed And Went Racist, This Human Like Robot Can Hold A Conversation…And It Wants To “Destroy Humans”
Life like robotics/artificial intelligence have been making great strides recently. Microsoft has tried to create a twitter bot that can hold a twitter conversation with 18-24 year olds (it failed miserably). Now, at SXSW, we see Sophia. An extremely life like looking robot than can actually maintain a relatively normal conversation (all be it still a bit robotic).
“Do you want to destroy humans?” – Interviewer “Ok…I will destroy humans” – Sophia
The funny/scary thing is that the creator actually programmed her to be able to say the words ‘destroy humans’ when asked about the scenario. Obviously not a real threat at this point, self learning robots are going to be a part of our future and this brings up the thought of whether they will actually be dangerous. No programming is perfect. One small bug in the system and an AI bot could begin acting irrationally. Experts think that humanlike robots are going to smooth communication between humans and computers, and realize a dream of compassionate robots that help invent the future of life. Do you think this is far off?
