There is a deep fear that human jobs will be replaced by AI. Rather than racing against the machines, our aim is to show that a human-AI combination will perform better than humans and AI working alone. Although no man is better than a machine for some tasks, "no machine is better than a man with a machine" (Paul Tudor Jones) . Thus, by building "bots" that are compatible with human behavior, and specifically leverage the manner in which humans use social information, we have been able to build bots that extend human intelligence capabilities. AI bots can successfully incorporate human intuition into their decisions and consequently not only do better than humans alone, but also do better than similar AI bots that use only objective information.
Join us for an inspiring conversation as Jeanne Lim, CMO of Hanson Robotics discusses how Robots will soon be everywhere. How can we nurture them to be our friends and useful collaborators? Robots with good aesthetic design, rich personalities, and social cognitive intelligence can potentially connect deeply and meaningfully with humans.
Hanson Robotics have a worldwide reputation for creating robots that look and act genuinely alive, including renowned robot character Sophia the Robot.
Sophia is a social humanoid robot that made her first public appearance at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. It is able to display more than 50 facial expressions. Sophia has been covered by media around the globe and has participated in many high-profile interviews. In October 2017, Sophia became the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. In November 2017, Sophia was named the United Nations Development Programme's first ever Innovation Champion, and is the first non-human to be given any United Nations title.
