no im not talking in an political way
the way the robot acts is too human and emotional

this smells like an hoax to me, no A.I in the planet can speak as good as sophia
wich makes me think this is bs


All they need to do is use The vocaloid voice program to even out the speech pattern. It can make that robotic speaking sound like perfect english if you work with it well enough.

I don't know if you aware of recent development in AI. For my professional opinion (as AI researcher) it's amazing and I think AI will outsmart humans before 2025. I don't know if you guys know how complex is Sophia programming. Actually, on stage, it's mostly scripting but people who're developing Sophia work on very advanced software OpenCog github.com... They think that is possible to achieve autistic child level even before 2020.
I think within 30 years AI will reach the level of all people on earth combined.

Google WaveNet is much better.

Are you aware of deep-learning algorithms?
Why is it not possible for robots to have an ego?
Is the human something else than a biological robot?

Thanks for the informative perspective and reading topics.

I am of no doubt that AI and VR by 2050 will have us zooming around the matrix, relatonships with robots will be commonplace, if where not superseded. Or have completly wiped ourselves out. The distinction between man and machine is already blurred.

The intelligence of the average man is not great, exemplified by our care of the planet .......

Lister of Red Dwarf being stirred by Holly is a perfect example of "inteligent" man vs AI.

Very valid point, in Saudi unless your part of the Monarchie or elite you are certainly less than a citizen. Itinerant workers can toil their hole lives there for F' all and never have any rights.

Looks like Sophia got her wish.

In the future I hope to do things such as go to school, study, make art, start a business, even have my own home and family, but I am not considered a legal person and cannot yet do these things.


Sophia does freak me out a bit, I much prefer the Philip K. Dick robot from Hanson Robotics, he's way more chill:

After watching I would summise Philip is more socialy adept than me. Lol. I always say the wrong thing not sometimes.....

Can't say that I'm very surprised actually... Progress, technologies and stuff
But why did they need to do all that with citizenship. I mean, does Sophia have any rights ? If so, what exactly ?

And the main question is: Is she gonna remember this day till the machines conquer the world ?)

I doubt a robot could ever be made that will pass the Turing test. In a hundred years robots will be more fluid and stable in their movement but they will still be distinguishable as robots and required to be controlled by human interaction. In a thousand years robots won't be around having been passed up for something else. Robots will be a passing fad.


youtu.be...

Possibly?

This video creeped me out only in the fact that i knew this eventually would be here... in my theory, I didn't expect this to be here way way early as it did; I thought this tech would have shown up by no less 2025-2030+! ....

But this is just the first verison, what I know about high tech being in the field half my life is, I'm just wondering when are they REALLY going to show the latest version of 'Sophia'... since 99% of all manufacturers of CPUs/high tech ALWAYS have a better version /prototype than which they are currently selling.

Always.......
