Latest Technology News : Will future robots be like humans?

In the past, the trend of making Human-looking Robots has increased, but isn't it scary to build machines that look like humans? Are these not a potential threat to the future?

However, Isaac Esimov's Robots based novel, the 1980s film 'Johnny 5', the Hollywood film 'Avengers', 'The Age of Ultron' and Channel 4's science-fiction drama 'Humans'. have been shown that Robots are very closed to Humans. These films have children of Robots, beings who can understand emotions and human-like consciousness.

But how true is it and how much is it needed?

Dr.  Ben  Goertzel   has   designed   an  Artificial Intelligence  software.  Based  on  this,  a Robot named  Sophia  has  been  prepared, which  is a Human  like  Robot.  It  is  made  by  Hong Kong based company Hanson Robotics.

Dr. Ben Goertzel says that Robots should look like humans so that doubts that are in the mind of humans about Robots should be removed. "In the coming times, there will be robots like humans because people like them," he told.

According  to  Dr. Ben Goertzel, "If  there will be human  looking  robots,  people will  be  able to order   them   and   talk   to  them   about   their girlfriends."

SoftBank's Pepper Robots are very bad to look at. While Sophia Robot will look into your eyes and they can also make faces like yours. It will be a completely different experience, than looking at the monitor on the Pepper Robot's chest.  

At present, 20 new Sophia Robots have been built and six of these Robots are being used all over the world. These Robots are being used to deliver speeches and technical training.

Many companies have approached Hanson Robotics for the purpose of using Sophia Robots to attract their customers, but one thing that is very clear is that whether human Robots like Sophia or Pepper Robots, they are still very expensive to manufacture And Dr. Goertzel himself does not deny this.

However, many Robotics disagree with this.

Can robots be rebellious?

Dr. Schuller, Co-founder and CEO of Intuition Robotics, dismisses the Robot's appearance and speech as human. They protest against this.

Intuition Robotics makes small social Robots in the shape of Aliqué which aims to overcome the loneliness of the elderly. This Robot can talk and answer questions.

They say that people who use  Aliqué Robots have to be reminded that this is a machine, not a person of truth, and it is really painful to do so.

He expresses concern over the influence of "Ankeny Valley".

Robotics Masahiro Mori is of the view that the more humans become closer to Robots, the more we have to fear them and the more they become rebellious.

Masahiro Mori believes that it is wrong to morally expect Robots to be like humans.

Will Robots have legal rights?

A person will surely realize at one time that these are Robots, nothing in real and then they will feel cheated themselves.

Masahiro Mori says "I don't see any connection between fooling you and giving you what you want."

"Alique Robots is very cute and it is a friend. Based on our research, we can say that it can give a positive affinity and overcome loneliness and that too without pretending to be human."

Dr. Reed Simmons, a research professor at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, agrees.

"Many of us believe that it is enough for a Robot to blink its eyes and have some special features. Instead of behaving like a human being."

"I am a strong supporter that we need to stay away from the situation like Ankeny Valley because it will give rise to many kinds of expectations which the technology will not be able to meet under any circumstances."

Singularity Net is the platform where developers can create Artificial Intelligence apps.  Which are used in Robots like Sophia.

Dr. Goertzel, who founded it, believes that over time, Robots will become smarter and if not more than humans, they will become as much as humans.

"Many Robots like human we see around us, the earlier we will get used to it."

They say that it happens many times that people become more comfortable with machines than humans.

But will we ever be able to reach that level where Robots will have consciousness, freedom of choice and dislike, and they will also have legal rights?

According to Dr. Goertzel "if Robots become as intelligent as humans, then they will also have consciousness."

Must kind robot 

There is no dearth of people who believe in the field of Artificial Intelligence, but this thinking is still not very widespread.

He says that until some five years ago there was very little research on Artificial General Intelligence, but now the seriousness has increased and big companies like Google are looking towards this.

"We need kinder robots than humans."

But many Robotics and Computer Scientists disagree with him.

Dr. Schuller says that this is not possible.

"Emotion is a distinct human trait and is a symptom of fully living people."

Dr. Schuller says "morality and values ​​cannot be set on the basis of statistics. It is linked to the feelings and morals with which we grow up."

But with Artificial Intelligence, they can learn to behave like humans and it can be understood how to react.

Intuition Robotics is working with the Toyota Research Institute on a project to create a digital companion for the car. The aim is to keep people safe in the car.

Difficult to copy human mind


In a recent issue of Black Mirror, Mayale Cyrus plays the role of a pop singer who has downloaded her full identity into an Artificial Intelligence system to create a small Robot doll named Ashley Two.

Experts believe that such things will always remain in the imagination.

Dr. Simmons says "I would say that it is not possible for a person to download his mind and personality into a Robot. We are far from copying a person's brain."

However, Dr. Goertzel insists that when Nikola Tesla gave the idea of ​​a Robot in the 1920s, no one believed it, but now what is in front of everyone.

"Sometimes things are beyond human thought."
