Artificial Intelligence At It's Most Personable! + #MyPostMonday The Week's Best Original Content

Have you seen her? The newest, first, and only robotic citizen of Saudi Arabia? She is so amazingly lifelike it's uncanny! This is what people have been talking about for awhile now, that artificial intelligence will compete with human intelligence. I was telling one of my co-workers about Sophia and he, in turn, told me about two chat bots that had been created by Facebook. They started talking to each other in a language that only they understood. They also could negotiate strategically, pretending that they were very interested in an item so they could simulate great sacrifice in giving that item up during negotiation talks. And although Facebook abandoned the experiment soon after this started happening, they stress that it wasn't because they were afraid of the results. And they stress that several times because people started talking about how Artificial Intelligence is going to destroy humanity and gave that as an example.

Apparently, Sophia has been programmed to joke around a bit about that earlier faux pas! She does it in a very lighthearted and very personable way. Honestly, she talks and reasons better than a lot of people, including myself! She's got great social skills!

I'm not sure what to think about this! As in everything technology, you can use the knowledge for good or you can use it for evil. It depends in who's hands it lands in! I could see this kind of robot doing all kinds of mundane things that humans now do. A greeter at hotels and airports, a hostess at big official gatherings, doing secretarial work, and all kinds of similar work. I also understand that the sex industry is pouring vast amounts of money into the development of this technology. So right there, it's evident that dark entities are trying to make profit from the same technology. Just when you thought that it couldn't get any worse in the form of exploitation, we get perfect life-like robots to take degeneracy to the next level. I'm sure that all the recently indicted film and T.V. industry execs, politicians, and corporate players won't even skip a beat, because how can you be accused of abusing a robot? 

What are your thoughts about the development of Artificial Intelligence? Do you see good or bad coming from this newest development?
