RECENTLY a humanoid robot called Sophia visited Australia and declared on ABC breakfast television that robots deserved more rights than humans because they had “less [sic] mental defects”.
The same robot previously told the SSXW Festival in Austin, Texas that she it would destroy all humans , albeit some kind of AI freudian slip.
Then the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia granted Sophia citizenship. (Presumably it’s still a second-class citizen being nominally female in a country that has only recently allowed women to drive.)
Sophia also imitates human gestures and facial expressions and is able to answer certain questions and to make simple conversations on predefined topics (e.g. on the weather). The robot uses voice recognition technology from Alphabet Inc. (parent company of Google) and is designed to get smarter over time. Sophia’s intelligence software is designed by SingularityNET. The AI program analyses conversations and extracts data that allows it to improve responses in the future.
Hanson designed Sophia to be a suitable companion for the elderly at nursing homes, or to help crowds at large events or parks.
Around the 14 minute mark that they introduce a new robot who is in a dark (black) suit and Sophia is in white.
They are using an Illuminati tool of black and white. good verses evil, good cop bad cop.
She says everything that benefits mankind through robots, whereas he speaks out as the one who tells it like it is, that man is in danger of being a slave race by AI
Mankind is at risk of being destroyed by robots.
Notice the word RISE.
The is the fulfillment of the rise of the machines, and we are just letting it happen.
Sophia’s body is just a torso but there are plans to give it arms and legs.
Humans are primed to respond to a face so I don’t think we’d be having the same conversation if you put Sophia’s AI brain inside a Dalek body.
Beth Singler, a researcher at the University of Cambridge, says discussing robot rights is a form of anthropomorphism.
“We are social beings who need to place the things around ourselves into a social scheme that makes sense of them,” she told website The Verge.
I’m married to the chief data scientist for an Australian AI company. He quips that the closest he’s ever come to Terminator 2 is that a guy in his office is called John Connor.
The pressing problem with robots is the rising economic inequality caused by technology and automation.
