So true Rosie has never been duplicate acted in real life but I can only hope!

There will always be areas where humans will excel and computers will excel. I am willing to let AI take over rudimentary tasks in fact I would welcome me Rosie from the Jetsons anytime!😁


 

Remarkably, Rosie was able to roll around on a SINGLE LEG with what looked like casters (sorta like an office swivel chair):

Interestingly, today's robot developers are having a devil of a time producing a robot that can manage to replicate human movement on TWO LEGS. This was recently highlighted in PBS's NOVA documentary Rise of the Robots. Here's a short YouTube promo that illustrates some of the difficulties encountered as teams of robot researchers competed for hefty development grants in a competition sponsored by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA):

If AI is to subjugate Humans, it won't be for a very long while ...


 

Somewhat corroborating this prediction is the recent development in the sports world:

Go champion Lee Se-dol strikes back to beat Google's DeepMind AI for first time
Intuition beats ingenuity at last

 

 

 

Machines are programmed not smart

Glad to see common sense overcome hysteria! Machines can only do what they are programmed to do they have no independent thought processes and no creativity, hence they can never replace humans. They can only perform tasks that are rote and don't require creative alternatives.

@Lyndon. While those concerns may not keep you awake at night, maybe we're not too far from the day when "they" know whether you are awake or not. Just a thought.

@Lyndon_Henry      Great point.    I had certainly forgotten about the Military, with their endless resources and their proclivity for creating all sorts of "technology based uses" that we all should be keeping tabs on.

Who knew about Drones until it was released for example ?     Just one example of a "technology based use" developed in secrete.

We have many more issues to be concerned with (and probably fearful of )  that are much closer to reality.


 

While I'm not petrified with visions of AI demons ruling the world, I am a bit nervous about what the military might do with the technology. Doesn't keep me awake at night, but worth keeping an eye on...

"..The whole scenario of AI machines reaching that level of AI, much less somehow subordinating their human creators, has some fairly daunting hurdles to cross before reaching reality."

 

@Lyndon_Henry   I agree.  If AI is to subjugate Humans, it won't be for a very long while, in the meantime can we stop with the irrational fear of AI ? 

We have many more issues to be concerned with (and probably fearful of )  that are much closer to reality.

Agreed, Lyndon... makes for better science fiction plots than real reasons to be afraid of the future.
