Teaching AI Emotions? Elon Musk says to be Afraid of AI?
The future is now! It is amazing what is taking place in the world of technology. In his book Augmented: Life in the Smart Lane, Brett King reveals a staggering picture of what life will possibly look like interwoven with such technology. Brett writes that robots are being taught human emotions, but the difference between you and a robot is that you have a soul! Brett shares the reason for teaching robots’ human emotions. “Now for the other – more controversial – reason why robots need emotions; so, they won’t kill us all.”
Jong Lee, CEO of Hanson Robotics talks about the exciting new development that Hanson Robotics is working on their newest robot, Han. “Han is really exciting because not only can he generate very realistic facial expressions, but he can also interact with the environment around him…he has cameras on his eyes and on his chest, which allow him to recognize people’s faces, not only that but recognize their gender, their age, whether they are happy or sad…” The future is here, and it is a sad thing that people are working on replacing humans. You are looking at the beginning stages of the Beast Economy written about in the book of Revelation.
These robots will replace human jobs, like for example at a hotel a robot could replace a receptionist. Jong continues, “Hanson’s target is to have its robots in the market for a lease of $3,000 per month. At that level, the numbers start to make a lot of sense. Hanson shows that at such levels, this could produce savings of $157,000 per year in front-desk receptionist costs in a hotel scenario alone.”
We have heard that jobs will not be the same which is true, but it means that we must get educated to be able to have a job during these times when things are getting more technical. Humans are more valuable than robots, and we can show that. We are the only part of creation that can show our emotions with our face!
Sophia is the next level up from the robot Hans, and this robot is also the first robot that is a citizen of a country, Saudi Arabia. In an interview with CNBC, Dr. David Hanson, founder, and CEO of Hanson Robotics, interviews the robot “Sophia.” Dr. Hanson shares what his thoughts are of how robots will interact with humans 20 years from now. The goal is to make the robots indistinguishable from humans! “They will play with us. They will teach us. They will help us put the groceries away. I think the artificial intelligence will evolve to the point where they will truly be our friends.” What brings this exchange to a sobering halt is when the robot responds to Dr. Hanson’s question, “do you want to destroy humans?” The robot responds, “Okay. I will destroy humans.” That is a scary thing that just by being asked a question Sophia said she would destroy humans!
An Israel based company, Mobileye, has developed a fully autonomous car. This autonomous care can drive itself and fully recognize surrounding traffic. When brainstorming ideas of how this technology could be used, one person surmises this autonomous technology be used to help gangsters pick up dead bodies and transporting them from one location to another. Are you concerned? Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, CEO of Tesla, shares his concern over this technology. When speaking to CNN, Elon shares, “We just don’t know what’s going to happen once there’s intelligence substantially smarter than that of a human brain.”
When Elon spoke at the National Governors Association, Musk underscored that governors must educate themselves on the matter. When asked how governors should establish regulations on the matter, Elon said, “Well, I think the first order of business would be to gain insight. Right now, the government does not even have insight.” The scary matter is Elon’s continuing remarks on what the outcome will be once insight is gained on the matter. “Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid.” He also compares the development of artificial intelligence to “summoning a demon.”
The future is now, and we must be aware of the technology because we do not want to be replaced by robots! Technology can be a good thing, but it needs to submit to us! We have a short time to share Jesus with the world before His return. We must take advantage of this time! Make sure to watch or listen to the full segment. We want to hear from you and what you think about artificial intelligence. You can write to us at [email protected]. Greg and John shared in this segment.
