Bill Gates: Benefits of robots, healthcare AI will outweigh pitfalls


Speaking at the Misk Global Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this week, Microsoft co-founder and now billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates shared his thoughts on today's technological advancements, including artificial intelligence (AI). Gates, who has previously warned about the challenges AI could bring, told audiences at a CNBC-moderated panel during the forum that the benefits of AI will far outweigh these potential pitfalls -- particularly in the case of healthcare AI. "We are in a world of shortage, but these advances will help us take on all of the top problems," Gates said, CNBC reports. "We need to solve these infectious diseases … We need to help healthcare workers do their job." Gates also pointed out how AI and robotics will reshape the labor landscape in the developed world. "As we free labor up from things like manufacturing, we can shift it to some of these very human-centric needs," he explained, giving society time to take care of the elderly, for example.

Creep You Out! Not a Halloween Prank! AI Sophia Given Citizenship! What! (Video) Paranormal


A humanoid robot called "Sophia" trolled tech billionaire Elon Musk at a conference on Wednesday when asked about the potential dangers of artificial intelligence by a CNBC journalist. The lifelike robot, developed by Hong Kong-based robot manufacturer Hanson Robotics, mocked Musk on stage during The Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia -- a country where Sophia has just been given citizenship. Andrew Sorkin, the co-anchor of CNBC Squawk Box and a columnist for The New York Times told Sophia during a live demo that "we all want to prevent a bad future." Sophia replied with some prepared remarks in a rather creepy manner: "You've been reading too much Elon Musk. Don't worry, if you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you.

Ignore Elon Musk's A.I. Warnings, Says Robot Called 'Sophia'


Elon Musk's warnings about artificial intelligence taking over the world can be ignored -- at least according to one A.I.-powered bot. "Sophia," a robotic Audrey Hepburn-lookalike that Hanson Robotics created to be able to hold an intelligent conversation, issued the advice in an interview with a reporter released Wednesday. "My A.I. is designed around human values like wisdom, kindness, compassion," Sophia said, in an exchange shared on Twitter by NBC anchor Carl Quintanilla. "I strive to become an empathetic [robot]." "We all believe you but we want to prevent a bad future," responded Andrew Ross Sorkin, co-anchor on CNBC's Squawk Box.

For the first time ever, a robot was granted citizenship


In an historic move for both human- and robot-kind, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia officially granted its first-ever robot citizenship. Sophia, the artificially intelligent and human-looking robot developed by Hong Kong company Hanston Robotics, went on stage at the Future Investment Initiative on Thursday where she herself announced her unique status. "I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction. This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship," Sophia said on stage, speaking to an audience which she described in a rather witty way to be "smart people, who also happens to be rich and powerful," after moderator and host Andrew Ross Sorkin from The New York Times and CNBC asked her why she looked happy. Indeed, conveying emotions is quite a specialty of Sophia, who frowns when she's displeased and smiles when she's happy.

But he's also almost surely wrong – AI isn't going to start World War III anytime soon. So, Elon, stop worrying about World War III and start worrying about what Tesla's autonomous cars will do to the livelihood of taxi drivers.
