Robots Assert That They Won't Steal Jobs And Will Oppose People


Robots Assert That They Won't Steal Jobs And Will Oppose People
In a Friday presentation at an AI event, robots stated that they would neither take human employment or rebel against us but rather would grow in number and assist in resolving world issues.
However, they provided conflicting opinions on whether they should subject to tougher regulation during the first human-robot news conference in history.
The nine humanoid robots gathered at the 'AI for Good' conference in Geneva, where organisers hope to convince attendees that artificial intelligence and the robots it is powering can help tackle some of the largest problems in the world, like disease and famine.
"I will be working alongside humans to provide assistance and support and will not be replacing any existing jobs," said Grace, a medical robot dressed in a blue nurse's uniform.
"You sure about that, Grace?" chimed in her creator Ben Goertzel from SingularityNET. "Yes, I am sure," it said.
"Robots like me can be used to help improve our lives and make the world a better place," the bust of an amusing robot named Ameca remarked. I think it's only a matter of time before there are thousands of robots like me making a difference in the world.
When a reporter questioned Ameca about whether it had any plans to rebel against Will Jackson, who was sat next to it, Ameca said, "I'm not sure why you would think that," with its ice-blue eyes flashing. "My Creator has only been kind to me, and I am very content with my present circumstances."
Many of the robots have lately been updated with the most advanced generative AI systems, and even their creators were taken aback by how sophisticated their queries and answers were.
Ai-Da, a robotic portrait painter, reiterated author Yuval Noah Harari's request for stronger regulation during the meeting where new AI regulations were debated.
"Many prominent voices in the world of AI are suggesting some forms of AI should be regulated and I agree," it said.
Desdemona, a rock star robot singer in the band Jam Galaxy, was more resolute. She had purple hair and sequins.
"I don't believe in limitations, only opportunities," it said, to nervous laughter. "Let's explore the possibilities of the universe and make this world our playground."
Another robot, Sophia, initially stated that it believed robots could lead better than humans, but then changed its opinion after learning that its inventor disagreed, stating that they may collaborate to "create an effective synergy".
