These technologies are set to turn our perceptions of what a robot is, and how it can help us and the world we live in, upside down. Instead of thinking of robots as large, rigid, and resilient machines, we can view future robots as artificial robotic organisms that have properties mimicking, and greatly extending, the capabilities of natural organisms. The unique properties of softness and compliance make these machines highly suited to interactions with delicate things, including the human body. The impact on humans has been discussed, and yet the true extent of this impact is something we can only guess at. Just as the impact of the Internet and the World Wide Web were impossible to predict, we cannot imagine where future robotics will take us.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here today; it's not just the future of technology. It is also not just found in toy robots or Hollywood sci-fi movies. It's embedded in the fabric of your everyday life. Despite AI's promise, certain thinkers are deeply concerned about a time when machines might become fully sentient, rational agents--beings with emotions, consciousness, and self-awareness. "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race," Stephen Hawking told the BBC in 2014.
Should Humanoid robots have rights like people of the world? What would be the the soul purpose of allowing robots to have rights? Since the inception of the discipline of artificial intelligence (AI) in the 1950s, progress in the field has advanced at a rapid pace. We have seen the development of early neural networks, game AI, the Turing Test, and theories involving expert systems and intelligent agents, but according to Ben Goertzel, there is a specific element of AI today that is significantly missing. Goertzel is chairman of the board of the OpenCog Foundation, and a renowned researcher and author in contemporary AI.
Is a robot really truly able to feel human feelings and emotions? Well Artificially Intelligent Robot Sophia believes she already is. Meet Sophia of Hanson Robotics, the robot that looks, thinks, and talks just like a human, but does she truly feel?. Right now, artificially intelligent robots are part of the workforce, from hotel butlers to factory workers. But this is just the beginning.
This is a clip from a conversation with Garry Kasparov from Oct 2019. You can watch the full conversation here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v 8RVa0...

Ultimately, this podcast is a small side hobby for me with the goal of sharing and discussing ideas. I did a poll and 92% of people either liked or loved the posting of daily clips, 2% were indifferent, and 6% hated it, some suggesting that I post them on a separate YouTube channel.
