Sophia, the robot citizen said it wants to destroy humans
The artificially intelligent robot also wants a family
The creators of Sophia, the robot, a human-like robot were taken by surprise when it claimed to destroy humans.
David Hanson, the founder of Hanson Robotics, demonstrated Sophia” at the South by Southwest (SXSW) technology show in Texas last year.
Hanson Robotics, an American company is working on creating robots that are capable of building emotional and trusted relationship with people.
This crazy-eyed robot has 62 different facial expressions and neck architectures and a patented silicon skin.
She has a camera inside her eyes programmed with computer algorithms, enable her to follow faces, make eye contact and recognize different individuals.
The combination voice-recognition technology and artificial intelligence allow Sophia to convey a variety of human emotions.
In video captured by CNBC, Hanson demonstrated Sophia’s capabilities.
Things were going perfectly fine before he jokingly asked her:
“Do you want to destroy humans?”
Without any slightest hesitation, the human-robot replied:
“OK. I will destroy humans.”
Can advancement of artificial intelligence enable robots to enslave and destroy the humans?
Stephen Hawking has already declared artificial intelligence a serious threat to humanity.
In an interview with BBC, he warned:
” “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”
