Robots will have civil rights by 2045, claims creator of 'I will destroy humans' android

A leading roboticist who developed an advanced humanoid robot has predicted that artificially intelligent androids will be given civil rights within 30 years.

Advances with artificial intelligence will mean computers will be able to match the general intelligence of a one-year-old human by 2029, and will require the same rights as humans by 2045, the paper – published ahead of the release of the new PlayStation 4 game Detroit: Become Human – claims.

This is the same year that noted futurist Ray Kurzweil predicts that the technological singularity will take place – the point in time when artificial intelligence will surpass that of human intelligence, leading to an an “intelligence explosion” that could ultimately result in human extinction.

I will destroy humans.” Dr Hanson’s latest paper, which marks the launch of a new computer game in which androids attempt to establish their own rights in society, concludes: “We must respect the possible positive and negative consequences in order to rise to the occasion, lest we go into the future unprepared, and risk sacrificing our humanity for the sake of convenience.

Sophia the robot’s creator says humans will marry droids by 2045 

A leading roboticist says androids will share the same civil rights as humans by the year 2045, including the right to marry both people and other robots.

Even though this will be seen as legal in the eyes of the law, Dr Hanson expects that androids will still be treated as second class citizens by humans for a period.  Dr Hanson added: ‘Lawmakers and corporations in the near future will attempt legal and ethical suppression of machine emotional maturity, so that people can feel safe.

But it won't be until the year 2045 that the Global Robotic Civil Rights Movement will have pushed the Western world to recognise androids as living entities, with the US being the first country to grant them full civil rights.   Dr Hanson has created about 20 robots through his company and believes that artificial lifeforms can foster better connections with people if they take on a human form.

And in March this year, film star Will Smith, happily married to Jada Pinkett Smith for 21 years, took to his YouTube channel to test his online dating skills against Sophia.   Dr Hanson's new research marks the launch of exclusive sci-fi title Detroit: Become Human on PlayStation 4 which depicts a near-future where androids try to establish their own rights within society.

Sophia the robot’s co-creator says the bot may not be true AI, but it is a work of art

(AI ethicist Joanna Bryson told The Verge the stunt was “obviously bullshit.”) Some were annoyed about the perception of Sophia itself — a robot that’s also a media star, with magazine cover-shoots, talk show appearances, and even a speech to the UN.

Experts in the field sometimes decry Sophia as emblematic of AI hype, and say that although the bot is presented as being a few software updates away from human-level consciousness, it’s more about illusion than intelligence.

'If I tell people I'm using probabilistic logic to do reasoning on how best to prune the backward chaining inference trees that arise in our logic engine, they have no idea what I'm talking about.

But if I show them a beautiful smiling robot face, then they get the feeling that AGI may indeed be nearby and viable.” He says there’s a more obvious benefit too: in a world where AI talent and interest is sucked towards big tech companies in Silicon Valley, Sophia can operate as a counter-weight;

“And it is absolutely cutting-edge in terms of dynamic integration of perception, action, and dialogue.” The end-result is undeniably engaging, and despite Sophia’s often stilted and awkward conversation, viewers seem to be left with a sense of something more.

He’s the most heartfelt guy I know.” And when asked about comments from academics like Bryson, who suggest that giving robots rights degrades human ones, Goertzel strongly disagrees.

“Empirically, in Saudi Arabia, the granting of a robot rights seems to be correlated with increases rather than decreases in general human rights,” he says, pointing to recent changes like letting Jewish people work in the country, and the decision to give women the right to drive.

Critics might reply that giving one robot “rights” in a ceremony designed to draw attention to a lavishly-funded tech conference doesn’t indicate any particular ethical probity.

And, in fact, in a country where homosexuality is punishable by death and migrant workers are kept in slave-like conditions, some might interpret it as just the opposite: as further evidence of “rights” being treated without due regard.

But there are enough real and current threats in the field of artificial intelligence — from bias in the algorithms handing out prison sentences to AI-powered surveillance states — to make these hypothetical problems seem like indulgent sideshows.

Saudi Arabia, which denies women equal rights, makes a robot a citizen

Until recently, the most famous thing that Sophia the robot had ever done was beat Jimmy Fallon a little too easily in a nationally televised game of rock-paper-scissors.

But now, the advanced artificial intelligence robot — which looks like Audrey Hepburn, mimics human expressions and may be the grandmother of robots that solve the world’s most complex problems — has a new feather in her cap: Citizenship.

“It is historic to be the first robot in the world granted citizenship.” In her comments, Sophia shied away from controversy. But many people recognized the irony of Sophia’s new recognition: A robot simulation of a woman enjoys freedoms that flesh-and-blood women in Saudi Arabia do not.

Sophia was asked the “AI nightmare” question, which she gets a lot: whether she believes artificial intelligence like herself will one day stop solving the problems of humans and instead decide to solve the human problem.

Musk, the billionaire inventor who gave the world Tesla cars and wants to take people to space, told a group of governors in July that they needed to start regulating artificial intelligence, which he called a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.” An AI revolution, he said, “is really, like, the scariest problem to me.” “Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be,” Musk said.

They were harmful to a set of individuals in society, but they were not harmful to individuals as a whole.” Musk believes AI “could start a war by doing fake news and spoofing email accounts and fake news releases, and just by manipulating information.
