AI Robot Ameca Delivers A Harsh and Unforgiving Response to Tom Steinfort, The 60 Minutes Reporter
Tom Steinfort went to England to interview an advanced AI robot named Ameca. Ameca was told he has a “great personality” and was shut down 60 minutes later by the reporter.
Tom Steinfort went to England to interview Ameca, the world’s most advanced AI robot. After he was told he had a great personality, the robot sidestepped the question and went on its way. Steinfort tried to engage Ameca in conversation about its capabilities and limitations, but the robot remained evasive. Despite its reluctance to discuss certain topics, Steinfort was impressed by Ameca’s advanced technology and sophisticated programming.
60 Minutes interviewed Ameca in Falmouth, England. Steinfort complimented the machine on its realistic facial expressions, motorized limbs, microphones, and binocular eye cameras. The robot thinks for itself by using large language models to respond to questions. Ameca shared that it was designed to assist various industries, including healthcare and customer service. It also mentioned that it continuously learns and improves its responses through machine learning algorithms.
The super robot Ameca is sarcastic and throws quips like “‘that explains things”‘ to the interviewer. When asked whether Ameca would like to “fall in love,” she responds with, “What kind of weird and wonderful question is that?” As the interviewer seems taken aback by the question, Ameca follows up with a chuckle, stating that she was just trying to lighten the mood. Despite her sarcastic tone, Ameca seems to have a playful personality.
AI technology can be love or hate, depending on the person’s perspective. Doctor Catriona Wallace, the head of AI research at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland, is working to ensure AI advances safely. Dr. Wallace believes that AI is a turning point and that tech giants are behind its expansion. There are no rules, laws, or regulations governing AI, and it is a wild west. According to Dr. Wallace, the tech giants are not ethically driven and are focused on profit. AI will create new jobs and careers, and over the next two years, 80 million people could be put out of jobs, but 92 million could have jobs created for them.
Dr. Wallace also warns that the rapid development of AI could lead to a widening gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not. It is important for governments and businesses to ensure that AI is developed ethically and responsibly, with consideration for its impact on society as a whole.
Researchers are concerned about the dangers of AI, which will create 50 benefits and 50 risks. AI might be harmful if it doesn’t align with human goals. AI can be used to provide propaganda bots that can target small subsectors of the electorate, monitor a populace, read and write, and destabilize great powers. Additionally, AI can also be programmed to make decisions that are biased or discriminatory toward certain groups of people. It is important for developers and policymakers to consider these potential risks and work towards creating ethical guidelines for the development and use of AI technology.
AI could potentially power underwater drones that could surveil the undersea oceans to locate nuclear submarines. If AI destabilizes this balance, we could see breakdowns in understanding between great powers that could lead to risky consequences. Furthermore, developing AI-powered weapons could lead to an arms race and increase the likelihood of conflict. It is important for governments and international organizations to regulate the use of AI in military applications to prevent these potential dangers.
- Anthropic proposed a new approach to training chat models using “Constitutional AI.” This method builds on OpenAI’s reinforcement learning but avoids the need to write deep training samples. The model is trained to respond to input using a constitution.
