Thanks to movies like ‘Terminator’ the world sees AI as a potential threat to humanity. For the most part, Hollywood exaggerates these films. However, new research suggests the idea of an evil robot is not that farfetched. In this Youtube video, robots react to violence and the outcome is upsetting, to say the least.
YOUTUBE SHOWS AI ROBOTS REACTING TO VIOLENCE
In a recent YouTube video, researchers brought together two advanced AI robots in order to test their reactions to the horror film ‘Morgan’. The film hits home for a lot of robots as it has to to with a bioengineered child and the decision to terminate it. Fortunately, robots don’t have any emotion so there should be nothing to worry about right? Well, not necessarily.
AI ROBOTS COME ALIVE TO YOUTUBE VIDEO
Fitted with a wide range of sensors, the AI robots can judge the movie with emotions. Upon playing the Youtube clip, robots expressed a human-like reaction. They thought the music was scary. One even covered their “eye” during a particularly intense scene. Jaws dropped, and eyes opened wide and the fear that ‘Morgan’ brought. This is just the beginning for the emotions of robots. Who knows what else they are capable of?
STOP SHOWING AI ROBOTS YOUTUBE
If we are so afraid of robots taking over humanity, why are we training them to have emotions? Aren’t they better off being our servants? That’s what they are designed for anyway. It’s time to put a stop to robotic emotions before they get out of control. Showing them scary movies is only putting deranged thoughts in their head. Now, they think that behavior is normal. It’s only a matter of time before the tables are turned on humans. At that point, we’ll wish we showed them ‘Sesame Street‘ instead of horror films.
