Robots with artificial intelligence able to accompany us are already among us. Look at Pepper and NAO Next Gen below as two examples you can buy, even if not any place in the world and a bit expensive. They are commercially available is my point. So what if they got on a bus, or a plane? What will they be charged for fares? I’ve got a simple proposal!
Recently, President Barack Obama and MIT Professor Joi Ito were interviewed by Wired magazine about the future of artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on our future lives. What the President and Professor Ito said are below, which were very enlightening to me. For what it’s worth, I’ll put my two cents afterward, adding a few other observations.
(apologies to Professor Ito for leaving him out of the title but it took away the ring and rhyme with too many more syllables)
Here’s where the fun really begins with my new adventure into artificial intelligence (AI) robotics! Sure, the robots, what they can do, what you can get them to do and how you apply it all that are cool. However, it’s the human and social sides of this which most interests me.
