Ed. note: Does pedophilia allow those involved with building A.I. technology to experiment with the very extremes in human emotions through pedophilia? While we are mesmerized by all this rapidly accelerating technology, what else is going on that might be of concern? Contributor I cover what entrepreneurs are looking to learn. Virtual gaming is about to warp through a black hole, thanks to a band of scientists in Hong Kong and a hedge funder with a zealous science background, called Jeffrey Epstein. Indeed, game programming is moving away from algorithmic robots to a twilight realm of emotional thinkers, taking online, video and toy entrepreneurs, one step closer to Star Trek's'Holodeck'. For years, in virtual gaming, the only intelligent player was the person playing the game, responding to non-reactive obstacles. At most, opponents could blow up or morph into something else.
The world's first robot citizen'Sophia' on Friday attended the International Round Square Conference in Indore, where it talked about climate change, conservation of energy and sustainable development. The event was attended by over a thousand students and several dignitaries. Hosting the event, filmmaker Uttara Singh asked Sophia several questions ranging from'what kind of dance she likes' to'what an ideal world will be like.' Sophia said that its favourite dance is the'robot' dance and showcased some moves.

As part of a wide ranging conversation, the creepy pair offered some sinister thoughts when it came to the future of humanity.

"You brought a friend with you here, and this is really freaking me out," the Tonight Show host tells David Hanson, CEO of Hanson Robotics, before inspecting the humanoid robot on stage. Sophia raises an eyebrow while looking out past the two men on stage. Hanson explains what Sophia does: It's a social robot that uses artificial intelligence to see people, understand conversation, and form relationships. "So she's basically alive; is that what you're saying?" Sophia says the Tonight Show is its favorite show and tells a corny joke. "I'm getting laughs," Sophia says, then suggests maybe it should host the show instead.
