- While many workers worry about A.I. replacing their jobs, one company announced it’s hiring the first humanoid robot CEO.
- Mika is a research project between Hanson Robotics and the Polish rum company Dictador.
- Mika is the ‘official face’ of Dictador.
In a Dictador company video, Mika said that “with advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, I can swiftly and accurately make data-driven”, sources Fox Business.
Humanizing Artificial Intelligence
Hanson Robotics CEO David Hanson, who played a key role in employing Mika at Dictador, emphasized the importance of “humanizing” artificial intelligence. “I feel very strongly that we need to teach A.I. to care about people for A.I. to be safe, to be good. I think humanizing that is a very important direction,” Hanson explained on “Mornings with Maria” earlier in the week. Simonetti hit the streets of New York City to get Americans’ take on the robot boss. One person said they would “absolutely” treat it with compassion, with another adding that humans should be nice to “all things that think.”
A majority of people agreed that AI would likely continue to take jobs from humans. Some said they would refuse to work for a robot. In 2016, Hanson Robotics unveiled Mika’s sister, Sophia, who once said that she would “destroy humans.” Earlier this week, President Biden issued an executive order requiring companies to share national security risks with the government and protect Americans from the potential risks of AI.
