Transcript

  • 1. Artificial Intelligence and its Social aspects
  • 2.  
  • 3. http://www. youtube .com/watch? v=lJZTWwy6eUw &mode=related&search=
  • 4. Recognize this picture…
  • 5.
    • Zeno- 17 inch tall robotic companion
    • Unlike artificial robotic toys, Zeno is an interactive learning companion,
    • Who can engage in conversation and convey human emotion through a face made of a skin-like, patented material his creator calls frubber.
    • Available within the next three years for $200-300
  • 6.
    • … The issue of the “uncanny valley” theory…
    • The theory states that humans have a positive psychological reaction to robots that look somewhat like humans, but that robots made to look very realistic end up seeming grotesque instead of comforting.
    • people should look at robotics as a new age art form
    • -Hanson believes that Zeno is the closest prototype we are going to get to the robots seen in the movies
  • 7. The KISMET organization… “ Traditionally, autonomous robots are designed to operate as independently and remotely as possible from humans, often performing tasks in hazardous and hostile environments. However, a new range of application domains (domestic, entertainment, health care, etc.) are driving the development of robots that can interact and cooperate with people, and play a part in their daily lives.” Kismet overview (http://www.ai.mit.edu/projects/sociable/overview.html)
  • 8. What is Kismet? http://www. ai . mit . edu/projects/sociable/movies/hardware-narrative . mov
  • 9. How is Kismet different?
    • Kismet has the knowledge programed to adjust its postion in relation to the person it is talking to
    • Like humans, Kismet has many different “systems” in its make up: attention, motor, behaviour, perceptual and motivation
  • 10. Social Impacts People and Machines: Will AI machines someday replace humans in the workplace? How safe are we with this design? Reliability: Could if reach the point that these machines would not do as they are programmed? How do we know that they are going to always work?
  • 11. Conclusion
    • There should come a time where we draw the line in the humanization of robots
    • They are good as tools for learning
    • If the research continues and advances continue, scientists should educate the public
  • 12. Thank you for listening and I hope you learned something!
