Hanson Robotics Case Study

Recently, the Hanson Robotics, an artificial intelligence company in the United States, has attempted to create an AI with developed social skills. They have developed a social robot, named Sophia. She is able to process visual data, see people's faces, process conversational data, as well as emotional data. She could use these data to form relationships and socialize with humans. As for physicians coping with health care in hospitals, AI may replace physicians in some areas. For example, surgeries require a rather high skill, and AIs have the precision that these treatments require. An AI is able to think for itself, meanwhile, it has access to a wide range of data and statistics. Therefore, the AI is able to generate and calculate the …show more content…
This may gradually lead to malnutrition and homelessness. If this situation eventually occurs, some people may query the existent of robotics and AI, as it has made people suffer, both physically and mentally. I strongly believe that artificial intelligence will gradually develop greater social skills and be able to interact with humans, eventually becoming a part of us in the future. Humans working with AIs are extremely beneficial for both sides. Not only us humans are able to work more productively and produce outputs more efficiently, AIs are able to learn throughout their working process, enabling them to accumulate more data. Some people are afraid that if ultra-intelligence becomes the reality, machines will be capable of mastering all human skills one day, and become even more intelligent than humans. By that time, wouldn't AI want to take over the world and wipe out humans? Some people are worried, the reason being they are concerned about situations being out of their control. Another reason being they do not understand AI. If more people have done research on AIs and experience working with AIs, they would have a different mindset in seeing AI. On the other hand, being precautions about ultra-intelligence AIs isn't a bad thing to do, …show more content…
As a student right now, I believe that teenagers like me should be aware that in ten years time, unemployment could become an even more serious issue. If AI could replace humans in jobs, would humans still be required to work? If so, how would humans be able to compete with artificial intelligence? My thought on this is that humans not necessarily have to compete with AI, instead, we could collaborate with AI and aim to reveal unsolved mysteries of the universe, and aim to make a difference in our world as citizens. Conclusion
In conclusion, I believe that workers in the primary and secondary sector, for example, extracting coal from coal mines, collecting cotton from cotton fields, and manufacturing of goods in factories are highly at risk of being replaced by robotics and automation, as for their immense high accuracy and
