Rushing out the door so don't have time to do a thorough thread but check out this interview with an AI robot. Very interesting how far the technology has come. This interview is from 2019, I believe



What say you, ATS?

Trying to figure out what creeped me out more, the robot or Tony Robbins.

he coughs at about 2.50 (probably because he sounds like he smokes a pack an hour) and the robot asks "are you ok", if that is unscripted its pretty scary, are we sure she is not just plugged into a laptop and someone typing answers


a reply to: AugustusMasonicus

thats not the real Tony Robinson, certainly not if you live in the UK, playing the character Baldrick in Blackadder

AI doesn’t exist yet…only augmented intelligence.
When True A.I comes around we will know.

The robot, Sophia, responded to him after thinking. Is that not AI?

No where close..

They're both pretty down near the bottom of the uncanny valley, no doubt.

I am not convinced that the Sophia thing is really A.I. Its creator, David Hanson, said in a June 2018 report as saying that it '... is AI “in its infancy,” with the next stage being artificial general intelligence, or AGI, something humanity hasn’t achieved yet.' I'm not altogether certain that the software - at least in this application - has advanced too far in the last two years.

The dude was an "imagineer" with Disney Studios and made this kind of stuff for like this for the theme park.

Interesting article here, if you want to read further.

So the rotating hourglass or spinning circle on my computer means that it's AI?

Both are robots. Tony is just an old model.

Sometimes AIs are programmed to mimic human responses to include pauses and other verbal tics. One of my favorites is the AI that can order pizza over the phone while sounding like a real person. "I would like to, uh... order a pizza for, like, delivery." It's pretty funny.

I think some of the pause is Sophia likely being programmed to make sure the person is finished talking to "her."

There was one point that Tony Robbins asked a question in a series of sentences. He paused just a little too long after one sentence and Sophia started talking over him.

There are clues that we as humans can pick up one when a person is done addressing us and it's OK for us to answer back, but I bet a robot would have a tougher time recognizing those clues, so it likely has a timer that tells it when a person is finished talking.

I'd argue that if they are "programmed to mimic", the it's not really A.I., it's just a pre-programmed response. True A.I. would "figure out" how to do that do it on its own, not need to be pre-programed with responses.

No one finds this topic interesting? The fact that a man is having a conversation with a robot.....?

Well, certainly a real A.I. would be ordering a WC-40 smoothie from Home Depot and not a pizza.
