The Future Is Here. A Robot Is All Set To Appear As Witness Before The Parliament

Published on 15 October, 2018 at 1:40 pm By

The times are fast changing. With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), it can be predicted that humanoid robots will soon become a part of us.  Recently, we also heard that a remote-controlled robot, Daksh, will be used by Pune Police for defusing bombs. But surprisingly, now in UK, a humanoid robot Pepper will appear as a legal personality in the parliament. He will explain the implications of using AI for the education sector.

This is the first time that a non-human will appear as a witness before the UK parliament.

 

As a witness, Pepper will give a demonstration about of how robots can be a great asset to learning in schools and workplaces.

He will also be questioned regarding the role of robots in the fourth industrial revolution. The fourth industrial revolution is considered as the upcoming era which will consist of breakthroughs in AI and robotics.

Committee chair, Robert Halfon, emphasized that discussing the role of robots is indeed important to know the potential of AI. He explains:

“This is not about someone bringing an electronic toy robot and doing a demonstration. It’s about showing the potential of robotics and artificial intelligence and the impact it has on skills.”



 

 

On the contrary, Elon Musk, had warned how AI can be a potential threat to the mankind. He believes that “super intelligence could lead to an immortal dictator”.

 

 

Robert Halfon argues Elon’s belief and focuses only on the positive side of using AI. He says:

“If you think we are going to be the living version of the Matrix, it is not going to be like that. But I think it will be exciting, interesting and it’s basically showing what the potential is.”

Despite the arguments, one can say that seeing a humanoid robot in a parliament is a huge evolutionary step in itself.
