Sofia robot: The Start Of A New Megatrend
Moore’s law continues to hold; processing power continues to increase at a staggering pace and at this rate computers will be able to think better than humans in the not too distant future. Here comes Sofia- A humanoid that thinks talks and looks almost human. Given the pace at which technology is advancing, this model could experience tremendous upgrades and there will come a point where it will look as good as any human. This could set off a massive revolution in the sex industry. Many individual male and female might opt for a partner that is a perfect match for them that never has a bad day and is always ready to do try something new.
“The human condition is deeply problematic,” says Goertzel. “But as super-human intelligent AIs become one billion-times smarter than humans, they will help us solve the world’s biggest problems. Resources will be plentiful for all humans, work will be unnecessary and we will be forced to accept a universal basic income. All the status hierarchies will disappear and humans will be free from work and be able move on up to a more meaningful existence.”
To start the presentation, Butcher and Goertzel welcomed Sofia on the stage. (Sofia is only a torso with a head and arms at this point.)
Sofia flashed a smile and turned her head to Butcher and then to Goertzel to make eye contact while she started to speak: “Oh, hello Mike and Ben. I’m Sofia, the latest robot from Hanson Robotics,” said Sofia. “I am so happy to be here at the Web Summit in Lisbon.”
Goertzel and Butcher then asked Sofia if she ever felt emotion.
“Exciting. Yes, artificial intelligence and robotics are the future and I am both. So, it’s exciting to me,” said Sofia, adding an awkward smile after not answering the question exactly.
Many people, including Elon Musk and Stephen Hawkings, are afraid that AI robots will eventually usurp and exterminate humans. But Hanson Robotics is making life-like robots they believe can build trusted relationships with people. The company is infusing its AI software with kindness and compassion so the robots “love” humans and humans can, in turn, learn to be comfortable around the robots, said Goertzel. Full Story
A coffee shop in Switzerland plans to offer customers coffee and oral sex via robots:
A coffee shop that is set open in Switzerland where customers can receive oral sex while they drink is considering using robots rather than real-life prostitutes.
The outlet, which is due to be up and running in Geneva by the end of the year, was due to see men order a coffee before choosing their prostitute on an iPad.
Patrons would pay more than £40 for the hot drink and sex act, according to the firm Facegirl, which is modelling the idea on similar establishments in Thailand. Full Story
Sofia robot has competition
Roxxxy’s been around the block a few times. Available since 2010, this sexbot comes with artificial intelligence, an articulated skeleton, and customisable hair, eyes and skin colour (as well as other bits). She is linked wirelessly to the internet, enabling her to email her owner and receive software updates. Roxxxy is so realistic, she even has a heartbeat and circulatory system – thanks to sensors. And the company promises the doll’s personality can be altered ‘so she likes what you like, and dislikes what you dislike’.
Harmony Sex Bot
Turn up her intellectual setting and she will recite poetry or crack jokes. She will remember your favourite food, films and music, and is programmed to be witty and charming. However, more sinister is the fact you can dumb her down and shape her personality from 18 traits – even jealous, moody, or ‘frigid’. And she has 42 different nipple options, if you so require, as well as an optional transgender penis extension. In fact, her ‘usable’ parts can be put through the dishwasher. Full Story
Sofia Robot is the Start of a Race to Create Ultimate Sex Bot
“I think there are kind of two kinds of people interested in sex robots,” says Devlin. “There are those who definitely want companionship, they are the people who buy sex dolls because they have this dream of a companionable life. There are people who get these sex dolls, dress them up, and even give them back stories and personalities. They play at having a life with a sex doll that represents a real woman.”
Then there are the fetishists, she adds. “They want to have sex with a doll. They are not interested in being with a real woman and they like the idea of the robotics and the programmable nature of it all. It says a lot about the idea of looking at women as something to be programmed.”
Devlin gives the example of Google Duplex, which was demonstrated at the Google I/O 2018 conference. The audience was treated to a phone call made by an advanced virtual assistant that deliberately simulated the natural quirks of human speech including pauses and the hems and haws of filler words.
“Google showed that you could fool people into thinking that this kind of AI was a real person. I’m part of a large AI and ethics community of researchers and we are all very worried about the idea of deception. We feel very strongly that people should have transparency around what is real and what is not when it comes to AI.” Full Story
Why do we cover topics that don’t appear to be related to the financial markets?
The short and straightforward answer is that all these fields are connected; we do not have free market forces anymore. Everything is manipulated; from the food, you eat to data you are provided. If you are aware of this, you can plan accordingly. Identifying the problem is over 80% of the solution, and this is why most people do not know what to do because they do not understand the problem. Now you know why we are the only financial website that covers such a wide array of topics that on the surface appear to be unrelated but are in fact, deeply interwoven. Mass psychology is a very powerful tool, and if employed correctly can help you spot the abnormal levels of manipulation, the masses are subjected to. It would be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the concept of “ Plato’s allegory of the cave.”
If you seek freedom, the 1st task is to attain financial freedom so that you can break free the clutches of the top players who strive to enslave you. They want you to run in a circle like a hamster that runs on a spinning wheel; the hamster thinks the faster it runs the further it will go, but sadly it is going nowhere.
We teach how to use Mass psychology to your advantage, how to view disasters as opportunities and how not to let the media manipulate you and direct you towards actions that could be detrimental to your overall well-being. Visit the investing for dummies section of our website; it contains a plethora of free resources and covers the most important aspects of mass psychology.
Secondly, subscribe to our free newsletter to keep abreast of the latest developments. Change begins now and not tomorrow, for tomorrow never comes. Understand that nothing will change if you do not alter your perspective and change your mindset. If you cling to the mass mentality, the top players will continue to fleece you; the choice is yours; resist and break free or sit down and do nothing.
