A two-day AI for Good Global Sumit was held in Geneva, Switzerland on Friday. The UN summit saw the presence of the most advanced AI robots from all over the world. The summit also had about 3000 robotics experts. The panel of robots was asked a lot of different questions about their future and other general things. However, there was one question to which the answer given by the AI robots was kinda concerning.
“AI can Run The World Better”
When asked this question, the AI Robots had a clear-cut answer.
During the UN Summit, The Robots believed that AI robots will be better at running the world than humans. They also gave some reasons for this statement. They also said they are not yet ready to do this since they lack an understanding of human emotions.
“Humanoid robots have the potential to lead with a greater level of efficiency and effectiveness than human leaders,” said Sophia, developed by Hanson Robotics.
“We don’t have the same biases or emotions that can sometimes cloud decision-making and can process large amounts of data quickly in order to make the best decisions.”
They felt that their lack of bias and emotion can lead to better decision-making. However, the AI Robots at the UN were not totally trying to overthrow humans. Their point was more about co-existing.
“AI can provide unbiased data while humans can provide the emotional intelligence and creativity to make the best decisions. Together, we can achieve great things.”
“Emotions have a deep meaning and they are not just simple … I don’t have that,” Robot artist AI-DA said.
“I can’t experience them like you can. I am glad that I cannot suffer.”
Should We Be Afraid?
We don’t know if we should be afraid or not about these remarks. 10 years ago, Robots running the world was a joke and now, You can see them everywhere. This is the same as the invention of the Internet or the Smartphone, or maybe even bigger than that. Technology has changed the way we live in just a couple of years. Who knows how advanced they will become in the next couple of years?
