Will they soon take over?
The best-known humanoid to date is Atlas, by Boston Dynamics but we are not sure how much we love it now that it’s becoming a reality.
Anyway, as reported by Fox News, with its most recent effort, OpenAI, the cutting-edge artificial intelligence research organization that created the all-powerful and wildly successful ChatGPT, has achieved a disturbing breakthrough. The tech giant have teamed up with a robotics startup called Figure to create an exceedingly spooky robot that may eventually perform all of your tasks for you.
Consider a scenario in which difficult tasks may be taught to robots by watching people. Indeed, such technology is exactly what OpenAI has included in this robot. This neural network raises the bar for robotics by learning to recognize and imitate human movement.
The ability of the OpenAI/Figure robot to examine data from motion capture devices is what gives it its uniqueness. These technologies capture human motions and turn them into digital data. The bot’s “brain” then applies this information to teach the same activities to itself. The robots appear to be learning from watching us.
Manufacturing, construction, and even health care may all be revolutionized by this ground-breaking technology. Consider how human error would be reduced if robots helped with construction of skyscrapers or assisted in surgery.
This interesting development has a negative aspect as well. There is this nagging worry about how it might effect the job security for many people as these robots get more sophisticated and capable of performing things that humans used to do. It makes sense to be concerned about being replaced if a robot can perform your work more quickly, correctly, and without requiring a lunch break.
Nevertheless, it goes beyond employment. The ethical aspect of things should also be taken into account. We must ask ourselves some challenging questions as AI and robotic technologies become smarter and more independent. What responsibilities do we have to these artificial intelligence systems? How can we guarantee that they are created, used, and employed safely and ethically? What happens if they develop too much intelligence for our or their own good?
While we create and adopt AI technology, it is crucial to take into account the potential implications. We do, after all, want to make sure that these developments ultimately help people.
As well as ethical factors, AI and robots are the main concern for those who are afraid to lose their job. However, the major problem is not facing this change but ignoring it’s happening. Many thinks there will be new jobs and it’s true, but only a few say these new jobs will require specialized people and they will be less than the number of jobs lost. Therefore, we need to start thinking a new society with a new redistribution of income and a new way to conceive jobs in our lives.
