Every day we witness some amazing technological developments in the world. Yet, have you ever wondered will artificial intelligence take over the world?
22 December, AtoZForex – Today, when the technology development pace is crazy fast, newer and newer updates are coming in. One of the freshest innovations in the market is Android Dick. Android Dick is a robot that has been created in the image of the science fiction writer, Philip K. Dick.
Will artificial intelligence take over the world?
Android Dick has been designed in order to create thinking and analyzing artificial intelligence. Moreover, this robot possesses human behaviors, such as sympathy and creativity. The first version of such robot was created in 2005. Since that moment, the robot was under the continuous development.
In 2011, the creators of the Android had the interview with the robot, asking him various questions for testing purposes. Some of the answers were quite impressive. The answers of Android Dick were not anything like you would expect. However, there was one answer that really frightening. Being asked a question: “Do you think that robots will take over the world?”, Android Dick said:
“…don’t worry, even if I evolve into terminator I will still be nice to you, I will keep you warm and safe in my people zoo where I can watch you for old time’s sake.”
When Android Dick was asked about his programming, he has stated:
“A lot of humans ask me if I can make choices or if everything I do is programmed. The best way I can respond to that is to say that everything, humans, animals, and robots, do is programmed to a degree. As technology improves, it is anticipated that I will be able to integrate new words that I hear online and in real time. I may not get everything right, say the wrong thing, and sometimes may not know what to say, but everyday I make progress. Pretty remarkable, huh?”
While this robot may seem intelligent, a number of his predictions are truly disturbing. Experts highlight that it is relatively common for robots to possess such kind of strange attitude.
Should we be worried?
Earlier last year, one of Japanese largest cellphone transporters, SoftBank Mobile, has designed the first humanoid robot. The robot was specifically tailored to live with humans. The company presented the robot as the first of artificial intelligence that can actually feel and understand emotion. However, a presentation of the robot has difficulties with emotions, as he is, in fact, a bit of an egomaniac.
Last year, over 1000 scientists and analysts signed a letter warning against the dangers of unchecked advancements in artificial intelligence. Android Dick is certainly not calming these worries.
