Interview With The AI Robot That Said It Wanted To ‘Destroy Humans’

 

Sophia was made by Hanson Robotics, based in Hong Kong. It is currently a demonstration product doing a tour of the world’s media.

Business Insider caught up with it at Web Summit, the gigantic tech conference in Lisbon. We asked it a few unplanned questions and got a variety of answers, ranging in quality from impressive to nonsensical.

Sophia delivered its side of the interview while making a series of faces, some eerily appropriate, some grotesquely bizarre.

 

 

Here is sophia saying she “wanted” to destroy humans.  Feels to me like it’s almost a joke or a mistake.  Can robots be funny?

 

 

With “journalistic” networks calling the robot hot already, feels like we as humans might not be ready for robots or artificial intelligence.  Wish we could just paitently talk to her instead of squeezing out interview on top of interview.  Feels almost like she is stressed out?

 

Given that Sophia is only a few months old, it’s a promising start. It runs on artificially intelligent software that is constantly being trained in the lab, so its conversations will likely get faster, its expressions will have fewer errors, and will answer increasingly complex questions with more accuracy.

 

Between the two videos she seems almost more cognizant, or alert.  In the first video her eyes seem sharper, looks almost like she is actually thinking about the questions.  What do you think?
