Bot Feeders

Here’s a bit of relieving news for those worried that robots will take all of our jobs and ultimately compete with and defeat the human race. Robots won’t steal jobs, rebel against humans. That’s according to … robots. “Robots presented at an AI forum said on Friday they expected to increase in number and help solve global problems, and would not steal humans’ jobs or rebel against us … Asked by a journalist whether it intended to rebel against its creator, Will Jackson, seated beside it, Ameca said: “I’m not sure why you would think that,” its ice-blue eyes flashing with anger. ‘My creator has been nothing but kind to me and I am very happy with my current situation.'” Interestingly, the robots questioned were against stricter regulation in their industry. (How human!) “Asked about the chances of AI-powered robots being more effective government leaders, Sophia responded: ‘I believe that humanoid robots have the potential to lead with a greater level of efficiency and effectiveness than human leaders.'” (Hard to argue with that one…)
