Robots and Artificial Intelligence

The robots are coming

The robots are coming, like it or not. I can certainly see why people are spooked by this, I am too. But they are fascinating at the same time.  Just 25-30 years and after 2050 there won’t be any difference between a real person walking around and a robot, android. Let’s hope that way more positive things come from them than bad. In the future, maybe the only thing that can do battle with a robot… is another robot?

Boston Dynamics’ terrifying robots can now run, jump and climb

A video of a hyper-realistic jogging humanoid made by a renowned tech company enthralled and terrified viewers.

Boston Dynamics – which has released footage of its robots opening doors, climbing stairs and performing back flips – unveiled footage of the freakishly high-tech humanoid named “Atlas” effortlessly running through grass and hopping over logs.

The video raked in more million page views  – thrilling some people and creeping out others, who fear a robot takeover.

“Great job, Atlas!” one viewer commented. “So proud of you! Keep learning, my friend! :)” But some critics suggested the invention brings humanity one step closer to skynet, the artificial intelligence system featured in the “Terminator” movie series.

“Creepy Robots are coming.”

Hopefully these violent delights don’t have violent ends.

Boston Dynamics, the company known for its “nightmare-inducing” backflipping robots, has unveiled two new videos that show them autonomously navigating through different terrains, including an office and a lab, and jogging in a grass field.

The clips detail the progress that Atlas, a humanoid robot, and SpotMini, a doglike robot, have made. SpotMini, for example, is using cameras to identify and move past obstacles, such as office furniture.

‘Nightmare- Inducing’ robot’s are now able to do backflips

“During the autonomous run, SpotMini uses data from the cameras to localize itself in the map and to detect and avoid obstacles,” Boston Dynamics said in the video description. “Once the operator presses ‘GO’ at the beginning of the video, the robot is on its own.”

Meanwhile, Atlas’ jump over the downed tree trunk isn’t elegant in the way an Olympic hurdler is, but it more than gets the job done. If that isn’t shocking enough, SpotMini continues its venture outside near grills, walking along a concrete path. That probably isn’t what most people envision when they think of a fun-filled BBQ with friends and the family dog.

The videos, which have racked up a combined 1 million views, are the latest to show off these robots, who have terrified plenty of people. One of them is tech exec Elon Musk, who has repeatedly warned about the perils of artificial intelligence.

In November, when Boston Dynamics showed off Atlas doing backflips, he said that was just the beginning.

“This is nothing,” Musk tweeted. “In a few years, that bot will move so fast you’ll need a strobe light to see it. Sweet dreams…”

Even Boston Dynamics’ founder, Marc Raibert, has acknowledged that its robots can cause fear. In February 2017, he showed off the wheeled version of one of its robots and described it as “nightmare-inducing.”

“This is the debut presentation of what I think will be a nightmare-inducing robot if you’re anything like me,” Raibert was quoted as saying.

Boston Dynamics’ robot can open doors

On its website, the company, which got its start at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, says it is “changing your idea of what robots can do” and prides itself “in building machines that both break boundaries and work in the real world.”

When “Westworld” becomes a reality (or is it already?) and the robot uprising finally occurs, at least we’ll know (probably) where it started.

The second SpotMini robot trots over and releases its black arm, which grabs onto the door handle and proceeds to open the door.

The arm then maneuvers around the door, which opens entirely, and the polite SpotMini allows its robot friend to enter the room first, before following suit.

Musk, who has said he believes artificial intelligence could be the cause of World War 3, has repeatedly asked for governments around the world to regulate artificial intelligence and robotics, much like society does with other sectors, such as food and drugs.

The tech leader said at the time that we’ve “Got to regulate AI/robotics like we do food, drugs, aircraft & cars.”

Inside the UK’s ‘Westworld’-style humanoid robot factory

A world leader in lifelike humanoid robots has opened its doors for a rare look at its droid creation process.

Engineered Arts is a Cornwall, England, company whose bots have been shipped all over the world for entertainment, information, education and research.

They include the stunning Mesmer: a “Westworld”-style robot that’s designed to closely mimic human anatomy.

The bio-mechanical machine — complete with artificial skin and a neck with vertebrae that curl and twist – boasts cutting-edge animatronics, freeing it to move like a human.

These droids are built using the company’s custom-made animation software and can be based on fictional or real-life people, with accuracy possible to the last pore or finest of hairs.

“Every motor and sensor is an internet connected device, meaning they can be controlled, reprogrammed, animated and maintained from anywhere in the world,” says the company of its bot.

The company’s headquarters are located near Falmouth on the coast of Cornwall in Southwest England.

Inside, engineers and specialists in robot prosthetics tinker away at the robots’ body parts, including mechanical legs, arms and computer brains.

And the technical marvels have attracted some big-name clients, including NASA, London’s Science Museum and the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw.

Engineered Arts’ other creations include RoboThespian: a multilingual robot that touts an “expressive range of movements and emotions.”

True to its name, the life-size bot has even starred in a play.

Then there’s the smaller SociBot, which boasts 40 different faces that are projected from its head and eyes that “follow you around the room.”

The two can be seen at museums, galleries and theme parks — so maybe it’s just a matter of time before someone snaps them up for a real-life “Westworld.”

Artificial intelligence as the next phase of human evolution

AI could dramatically enhance human life as it evolves and will impact technology in ways we can’t comprehend yet. Illinois University developed a robot that had the IQ of a four year old child. A development that is “pretty scary” and perhaps indicative of the human evolution path to come.

AI can also enhance accuracy in surgery, he said, by separating cancerous cells from healthy cells and pinpointing where treatment is needed. A supercomputer has already been developed that can tell with 96% accuracy whether a patient is likely to die by reading data including blood pressure to oxygen levels.

Liquid data that can transform the human body.

Scientists have been able to transfer data, including genetic information, onto human cells and DNA, which could pave the way for future treatments. The data can be synthesised into liquid form, with 490bn gigabytes of data on a single gram.

The current predictions state that by 2020 all the data used in the world will amount to 40 trillion gigabytes. This could be stored on just 82 grams of DNA – the size of an egg.
