ROBOTS AND HUMAN BABIES IN THE FUTURE RAISES POSSIBILITIES

Computerized humans & Machines Take Over

Moore’s Law—The observation that computer chips get twice as powerful every two years—the implication here is that, eventually, artificial brains will eclipse the human brain. It then begs the question, what will the artificial superintelligence of the future choose to do with its abilities?

“The risk is not so much a Terminator scenario, where you get a supercomputer that abhores humans,” says Anders Sandberg, a researcher and futurist at the Oxford Martin School’s Future of Humanity Institute in England. “A malign neglect would be a more appropriate problem. You get something that’s very intelligent but has motivations that are completely nonhuman. [The computer] might not really care about anything that we care about, but since it’s smarter, it’s more than likely going to get what it wants.”

ROBOTICS TO DO SURGERY ON HUMANS

Open-source project intends to advance robotic surgery


A couple of years ago, the Willow Garage robotics company gave ten of its PR2 robots away to deserving research groups. The idea behind the project was that these groups would use the PR2s for robotics research, then share their discoveries with each other, thus advancing the field farther than would be possible if they each had to build their own unique robots from scratch. Now, a similar but unrelated project is underway, and this time the robots are designed specifically to perform surgery.
