Study shows how humans can quickly see if humanoid robots can think independently

A new study has shown that people quickly become convinced that a humanoid robot is capable of independent thoughts and emotions.

This occurs when the robot appears to act according to its own beliefs and desires, rather than what it is programmed to do.

Researchers at the Italian Institute of Technology examined the reactions of study participants to an anthropomorphic robot named iCub.

Participants filled out a questionnaire before and after interacting with the iCub, which was programmed to act either like a robot or more friendly.

Those who were exposed to a robot programmed to act more like a human were found to be more likely to rate the robot’s actions as intentional.

Conclusions come after Google Last month, a software engineer was suspended for claiming that the company’s artificial intelligence system had become sentient.

Researchers at the Italian Institute of Technology have found that humans can quickly verify that a humanoid robot is capable of independent thought and emotion.

Principal investigator Dr. Agnieszka Wykowska said: “The relationship between anthropomorphic form, human-like behavior, and the tendency to attribute independent thinking and intentional behavior to robots remains to be understood.

“As artificial intelligence becomes more and more a part of our lives, it is important to understand how interacting with a robot that exhibits human-like behavior can increase the likelihood of a deliberate action being attributed to the robot.”

The team ran three experiments on 119 participants to test their reactions to the iCub robot.

Each experiment included a period of socialization with the iCub, where they interacted with each other and responded to the video together.

Before and after that, the participants filled out a questionnaire in which they were shown pictures of the robot in different situations.

They were then asked to choose whether the robot’s motivation in each situation was mechanical or intentional.

For example, participants viewed three photos of the robot selecting a tool and then choosing whether the robot “grabbed the nearest object” or “was fascinated by using the tool.”

The study participants were asked to choose whether the motivation of the robot in the photographed situation was mechanical or intentional.

WHY WAS GOOGLE ENGINEER SUSPENDED?

Last month, a Google software engineer was fired after he said his LaMDA (language model for conversational applications) artificial intelligence system had become intelligent.

Blake Lemoine publicly declared that the instrument had the intelligence of “a seven-year-old, eight-year-old child who knows physics.”

The 41-year-old also said it was human insecurities, and that one of his fears was that he was “highly concerned that people would be afraid of him and want nothing more than to learn how to best serve humanity.”

Google claims that Lemoine’s concerns have been addressed and, in line with Google’s AI principles, “the evidence does not support his claims.”

In the first two experiments, the researchers remotely controlled the iCub’s actions so that it behaved sociably when meeting participants.

He greeted them by introducing himself and asking their names, and the cameras in the robot’s eyes could also recognize the participants’ faces and maintain eye contact.

Participants then watched three short documentary videos of a robot that was programmed to respond to the video with sounds and facial expressions of sadness, awe, or happiness.

In the third experiment, the iCub was programmed to behave like a machine when interacting with participants and watching videos.

The cameras in the robot’s eyes were disabled so it could not maintain eye contact and only spoke to the participants in recorded sentences about the calibration process it was going through.

All emotional reactions to the videos were replaced by “beeping” and repetitive movements of the torso, head and neck.

Participants who watched videos of a humanoid robot were found to be more likely to rate the robot’s actions as intentional.

Those who interacted with a machine-like robot would also be more likely to rate its actions as programmed.

These findings, published today in Technology, mind and behaviorsuggests that humans are more likely to believe that artificial intelligence (AI) is capable of independent thought when it appears that it can behave like humans.

Dr. Wykowska argues that it is not enough for a robot to simply look like a human for people to believe that it is capable of thoughts and emotions, it must also demonstrate human behavior.

This could be used to design the social robots of the future.

She said: “Social bonding with robots can be useful in some contexts, such as with socially assisting robots.

“For example, in the care of the elderly, social bonding with robots could lead to higher compliance with drug recommendations.

“Identifying the contexts in which social connections and attribution of intentionality are beneficial to human well-being is the next step in research in this area.”

Elon Musk says Tesla’s AI-powered humanoid robot ‘Optimus’, which can walk at 5 mph and lift 150 pounds in a deadlift, will be ready in THREE MONTHS.

Elon Muskcar company Tesla in just three months, will introduce its humanoid robot with artificial intelligence called “Optimus”.

Speaking at the Qatar Economic Forum on Tuesday, Musk said the prototype robot would be demonstrated at Tesla AI Day September 30th.

Optimus, which was first announced last August, will be almost six feet tall, can walk five miles per hour and lift 150 pounds.

It will be designed for “dangerous and boring” tasks in a factory and other environments, although it will be “friendly” and make a “very good companion”, such as a pet.

It has to handle a range of jobs, from fastening bolts to cars with a wrench to picking groceries from stores.
