A new study has discovered a powerful force that is now driving evolution on Earth.

Artificial Intelligence Sophia

The future of humanity strongly highlights the promotion of the ever-growing incorporation of artificial intelligence into our daily lives. Already today there are many incorporated technological tools that humanity relies upon daily. These advancements of artificial intelligence are embedded within your mobile phones and also many apps such as Facebook and Youtube. Artificial intelligence is a tool that will only improve and become deeper embedded in our everyday being. However, the advancements in robotics have also become a slowly embedded advancement into humanity. This is clearly shown due to our own dependents on certain devices during this technological era. To take a step further the idea of advancing robotics have also provided massive leaps towards the workings of artificial limbs that interact solely with the neuronal and muscular system of the human body. However, let us take this even further and focus our attention on the recent advancements of humanoid robots embedded with the accessible connection of artificial intelligence, this is shown most popularly in humanoid robots like Sophia's artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence definition:

"The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages."

Humanoid definition:

"Having an appearance or character resembling that of a human, (especially in science fiction) a being resembling a human in its shape."


Who is Sophia the artificially intelligent robot

Sophia is a socially designed humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics, who was first turned on February 14th 2016. Sophia is claimed to be the first developed general artificial intelligent robot that is in the nascent stages of early development whereby she becomes more intelligent learning from human interactions. The idea is that Sophia could potentially have access to the world wide web and all of its information. Along with this, newly learnt intelligence is uploaded what is known as 'the cloud' allowing all other artificially intelligent humanoid robots associated with Hanson Robotics to gain access to this information.  

The future of humanoid artificial intelligence, without a doubt, portrays worrying concerns but also highlights many beneficial factors. For example, worldwide issues could be contemplated using artificial intelligence, coming to a conclusion with no emotional input, or a levelled plane. Putting this aside, there is also the worrying concern that the future development and incorporation of humanoid artificial intelligent robots into society could always lead to scenes taken from movies such as I-Robot.

Whatever the future of robotics has to install for humanity, humanoid robots like Sophia with the incorporation of artificial intelligence is just going to become more advanced with each being designed for specific advancements to help alleviate humanities weaknesses, providing humans with the next step of future survival expanding the distance between us and our foraging ancestors. Humanoid robots like Sophia is just the beginning of this process. Maybe the world will be overrun by little Sophia's.
