Human beings are unable to connect with artificial intelligence: Pranav Mistry
Artificial human prototype Neon, conceptualized by computer scientist and inventor Pranav Mistry, created waves recently. 38-year-old also spoke about the dangers posed by AI,echoing Google parent Alphabet Inc’s chief Sundar Pichai who recently called upon governments to regulate AI.
The CEO of Samsung’s STAR Labs and the president, told that he created Neon because human beings are unable to connect with artificial intelligence (AI) assistants such as Apple’s Siri. A lot of businesses are coming to us (for Neon), from media companies, film and even the fashion industry.
When it comes to consumer applications, in the long run, we need to build something that doesn’t exist – someone who can have the human aspects, emotions, in coming future, it might solve healthcare problems, or education problems or the loneliness problem in the United Kingdom.
The chairman of a big media company in (South) Korea said that, major problem is breaking news at night since you need to wake up the whole crew. The human connection is what keeps us attached as a human. And, that is the reason behind doing this.
Pranav Mistry, considered one of the best innovative minds in the world right now, said Neon will be a companion to the elderly and to those who are lonely and could even work as fashion models or news anchors.
