Humanity could be wiped out by Terminator-style AI weapons as small as a tin of shoe polish. Prof Stuart Russell, a computer expert, believes that the dangers posed by artificial intelligence killing machines, which can already identify human targets, are so great that he wants them outlawed. Military leaders have been warned that smart weapons akin to those used by Terminator could wipe humanity out. Prof Stuart Russell, a computer expert, believes that the threat posed by artificial intelligence killing machines is so great that he wants them outlawed. They have already demonstrated their ability to locate and murder specific…

The search for alien life has been ‘wrong’ the entire time, according to one astronomer. Nobody knows whether we’ve ever had communication with aliens, but scientists believe that seeking for them in the same way all the time will yield no fresh results. The search for extraterrestrial life forms has taken an unexpected turn this week, with specialists arguing that we’ve been looking for the wrong indications all along. Seth Shostak, an American astronomer who works for the SETI institute, which searches for alien life in real time, believes that we should cease hunting for planets that could support human…

Cancer and plastic pollution could be solved by ‘Pac-Man’ robots built from frog cells. Researchers in the United States have constructed a living ‘pac man’ made of frog cells that can replicate themselves in the hopes of solving plastic waste and curing cancer. Frog-cell-based “Pac-Man” robots could address anything from plastic pollution to cancer. The so-called “xenobots” are millimetre-wide lifeforms produced from frog embryonic cells. Their skin cells are employed to construct the mini-robots’ framework, while their heart cells serve as tiny motors that allow them to move around. The baby frog-bots can now make clones of themselves, according to…

According to NASA’s chief, AI will find aliens before humans, but it will not try to kill us just yet. EXCLUSIVE: Artificial intelligence is so critical to space missions that we can’t go to Mars without it, and it could even help us find alien life, according to NASA’s AI Director. AI is now so important to space exploration that it is very likely that it will find alien life before humans do – but fortunately, machines are unlikely to betray astronauts anytime soon. According to Dr. Steve Chien, the head of artificial intelligence at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who…

A leading robot company will pay a British citizen £150,000 to use their face on all of its robots. Promobot, a US company, will pay £150,000 to someone with a “kind and friendly” face to work as a robot assistant in hotels, shopping malls, and airports as early as 2023.

Experts warn that China has the ‘upper hand’ in upcoming AI warfare. According to worried scientists and defense chiefs, the US and China will soon be at odds in the fight to control the future of artificial intelligence technology – and the world. According to scientists, artificial intelligence (AI) warfare between the United States and China is on the way, and it should worry us all. In the race to control the future, as China rapidly develops its own AI capabilities, American tech leaders are concerned about the global implications for privacy and security. According to Investment Monitor, a recent…

After learning to fry chicken wings, Flippy the robot has people terrified for their employment. A new robot that can flip burgers, cook chicken, and even make onion rings has sparked fears of job loss, but it could be a blessing for eateries facing severe labor shortages. Fans of fried chicken beware: if the techies have their way, your next Nando’s could be prepared by a robot. Miso Robotics has now released Flippy 2, the latest iteration of its burger-flipping robot that was previously tested at White Castle in the United States. Because of artificial intelligence, the current Flippy can…

To teach AI how to touch, Facebook creates a’soft and sensitive’ robot skin. In order to make the ‘Metaverse’ ultra-realistic, researchers at Meta (previously Facebook) have built a new type of artificial skin that will assist train AI how to touch and feel things. Facebook (now Meta) researchers have introduced a new type of robot’skin’ that they believe will allow AI to touch, feel, and grab objects. While AI is getting very adept at sight and hearing, due to a shortage of affordable sensors, touch has proven to be more difficult. Meta’s ‘ReSkin’ technology now generates ‘tactile’ data to assist…
