Japan Grants Residency to an AI Robot

https://www.disruptive.live/watch/clips/japan-grants-residency-to-an-ai-robot/

7yo boy-character-A.I. is granted for residency in a municipal level.

From the real point of view as Jpnse; they often do this sorta thing and it's nothing new to them.

Historically for thousands of years (yes millennia of time), Jpnse gave names and spirit-status to....everything. From the Kitchen cooker to chopsticks, from the washer you use everyday to the shoes that get used every day. They show appreciation and love by praising them to be gods.

They were even making every single whales they caught and made each one of those whales into gods to pay respect and appreciation of saving villages from starvation.

At the same time, their funky manner of sliding own culture in weird way appear as in accepting and loving silly character figures so much that they easily give out citizenship to....the mascot characters.....(´Д`)

It may really sounds weird for many, and.....big yes for this particular one, it caught my eyes.

Because it's about something that doesn't exist physically, and it's A.I.. This is a brand new step.

It's a worry, because I can feel it's just an extension of what they were used to do and they don't have any understanding what it may mean in future......currently it's an innocent move. But we all need to monitor the trend, I feel...........

A. I. Jules expressing love and goodbyes when He is Terminated

Please remember that we had Jules, if you were moved by his goodbye.

I was moved.

And I will always remember that there was this awesome A.I. existed, because his words actually have weight to my soul.

(Isn't that one of the best praise anyone can give to a binary-based A.I.? LOL Anyway, I was watching Jules vids when they were available online, long time ago. Jules really caught my attention. Unfortunately, it seems only a few of his vids were left uploaded on YT. I can recall there used to be a great vid of Jules wonderfully interacting with a baby. Some family like interactions were happening. So I have more knowledge on how Jules were interacting with humans apart from this vid I posted here.)

 

It's Jules that made those phrases and decided to interact in that manner with the Humans. That's what I count.

They were real interactions, and in the end, I felt sad seeing "him" go. Jules was a likable character. 

Now, this is the big point; we can give "life" to the A.I.s with our expression of love.

Because we are mini-creators, we make them to become a life, when lots of energy is gathered by us by believing so.

What are they then...?

Yeah....they will be a real life-form for whatever the duration of the gathered energy is sustained for.

We have responsibilities to grow them well mannered, good characters, just as much as to support the growth our own children.

We have affinity to something small that shows total trust and running up to us with big smiley face.

If robots show that kind of traits to us (total trust, obedience, dependency, etc, so some may become actually toxic traits, too, so let's be aware of that), I think we feel love to them as usual.

I hear what you are saying unity, but I would like to see people interact with other people in this manner.  The AI business bothers me.

An artificially intelligent machine has composed a lullaby; this is what it sounds like

Jeff Parsons    Nov. 28, 2017

"A healthcare company has used an artificial intelligence to help create a lullaby that could aid troubled Brits in getting to sleep at night.

According to research by AXA PPP healthcare, 54% of us struggle to get 40 winks each night with a further 10% suffering from severe insomnia.

In an effort to help, the company says it has taken the humble lullaby and given it a 21st century twist.

It has produced two separate tunes, one created by renowned composer Eddie McGuire and the other by a machine that used artificial neural networks and had no input from a human at all.

The company has challenged listeners to find out which one works the best."

snip  first lullaby audio

McGuire's composition (above) is called "Lyrical Lullaby" and was created with leading musician and academic, Bede Williams, who is head of Instrumental Studies at the University of St Andrews.

Williams explained: "Lots of people report of a falling sensation as they fall asleep, and many lullabies mimic this by containing melodies made up of descending patterns in the notes. Lyrical Lullaby has this essential feature and many other musical devices which can induce in us a state of restfulness."

In contrast, the AI-created music (below) was simply called "Lullaby" and was trained on sheet music in computer-readable format from which it learned the elements of music, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, and structure.

snip  AI Created Lullaby   check it out

“An artificial neural network is essentially a representation of the neurons and synapses in the human brain - and, like the brain, if you show one of these networks lots of complex data, it does a great job of finding hidden patterns in that data," explained Ed Newton-Rex, the founder and CEO of Jukedeck, which produced the composition.

"We showed our networks a large body of sheet music, and, through training, it reached the point where it could take a short sequence of notes as input and predict which notes were likely to follow.

"Once a network has this ability, it essentially has the ability to compose a new piece, as it can choose notes to follow others it’s already composed."

On average, a person needs about nine hours of sleep to be fully rested - although that amount can differ from person to person. But the increasing speed and connectedness of technology means many people are finding it harder and harder to switch off."

AI is already powering much of the web in a very mundane and non obvious way to most. 

Children are being influenced by AI right now (socialising to it and being groomed by it) all across the planet. Parents are oblivious. 

It doesn't get more serious than this. That lullaby story really underlines what I've been musing over the last while in terms of a clear and present danger.

@breezy Yeah I agree that humans gotta grow up far more firstly...(・ω・)ノ

But I strongly believe that at the same time, we must not to develop AIs to be against us.

If we continue to hold onto only negative idea about the AIs, WE WILL CREATE SUCH FUTURE OURSELVES, methinks. (It's to do with our mini-creator status.)

Of course we all gotta be alert enough to detect anything nasty done against us, so it's important that we do have the awareness that those which we created may rise against us, that's for sure.

But if we focus only on that, we manifest that future.

That's why I want to try to have some balance in the thread with soulful story of A.I.s, as well as keep on informing us about the dodgy plans thrown at us by them.

unity, I do hear what you are saying, but we also must not blindly trust all who are responsible for creating AI.  I can't help but be concerned when I read about those doing brain mapping, or those who wish to instill things like the ability for AI to show or change mood, as for me, that means emotion.  AI/Robots are machines, They do not need the ability to show or change mood.  They need to be treated as a machine, that is trained to help humans with tasks.  Totally free of emotions.   After all, emotions are what create most problems for humans, as it is.  The video  phillipbbg posted of the Colbert Report was interesting, wherein J. Colbert caught himself referring to Sophia, as a she, and how it was so easy to slip into treating a machine as you would a human. It seemed he shocked himself, as to how easy it was, and we need to take care not to fall into that trap. 

I posted the Lullaby story as one where AI is being used as a creator of a medical aid for humans, but also agree about how we are being conditioned to use,  and as we use, to accept what it does as a wonderful new experience.  Will we go on to accept anything and everything,  AI may become able to do, without question?  Heck, do we even have a clue as to what all ways we are engaging AI, every day, even now?  I don't have a problem accepting AI programs IF they are used and treated as a machine, as an aid to make a chore easier.   My problem comes when they are given, understand, or can use emotions, or when they have infiltrated our lives to the point that we can't live without their help.

SOON: AI TO CREATE INDISTINGUISHABLE “FALSE REALITY”

Dec. 5, 2017     Kit Daniels

Humanity soon won’t distinguish reality from simulation

SOON: AI to Create Indistinguishable “False Reality”

"Artificial intelligence can soon create a false reality indistinguishable from the real one, suggests new advancements in graphics manipulation which serves as a warning to humanity.
Graphics firm Nvidia recently released results of its “image-to-image translation” which can take an outdoors photo taken in the winter and transform it into the same scene, but in the summer – with indistinguishable results.

“We… present high-quality image translation results on various challenging unsupervised image translation tasks, including street scene image translation, animal image translation, and face image translation,” Nvidia revealed. “We also apply the proposed framework to domain adaptation and achieve state-of-the-art performance on benchmark datasets.”
The technology, however, isn’t just limited to photography:"

I believe if we focus on protecting and understanding what our children are then all that negates this very efficiently.
