I wanted to open up this topic to discussion and hear your thoughts:
lets say a company was created and its main goal was to develop the first autonomous humanoid AI and the goal was to make it the most brilliant being on earth capable of knowing anything and everything. it would have superhuman strength with bionics allowing it to be faster, stronger, and utilities within it to see and hear using all known technology out there. its eyes could scan your retina and zoom in to your fingerprints to immediately know who you are. additionally, it had a computer within it that could have all the knowledge of the internet and processing and storage speeds at a quantum level. it could make use of any system available online and easily tap into it to assist it on any task it choses. think of all the practical applications this "new tech" could bring to humanity. better yet, the profitability it cold bring to the company. it would be a whole new era.
now, what would be the infant stages of this project? lets see...first, lets start on data collection. what are the sources that can be used, and once gathered, computed into a central source this humanoid can grab? well, the internet is a good collective to store all the data in and once tapped in, the humanoid can certainly use it.
humanity is willingly and unknowingly, every single day, providing this data and uploading it to the central collective called the internet. every human is helping for free build this data bank. social media, photo, video and cloud storing, etc. we are typing search words specific to our interests every day. every single move we make is being recorded online specific to each of us. once entered the data is not ours anymore. home monitoring cameras are recording endless nonstop feeds and being stored in the collective internet. every single device we carry in our hand has some sort of listening device embedded, i.e. SIRI. alexa,s and devices inside our homes are recording every moment. all of this data being collected can be used by this new humanoid to learn and immediately process information about anyone it comes in contact with.
lets develop robotics to be superhuman. mechanically, lets make it faster, stronger, using all the most resistant metal alloys and fire, water proof. lets refine it and give it a human shape. lets incorporate radar, sonar, infrared and gps guidance. lets give it bionic eyes and all known and available sensors such as facial recognition.
we will need to work on data processing and storage since this humanoid will need speed to store and access this amazing amount of data it has access to from the collective internet. what is the next evolution of computing? oh, quantum computing.
does any reader of this post have any ideas as to what companies out there seem to be working very hard on all of this almost simultaneously?
there is a company that is the largest data collection company known to man. it owned boston dynamics and helped develop the latest in robotic tech. it offered free cloud storage and email storage for all your documents, videos, photos and now bought nest, the leader in home cameras with...cloud storage. they own phones and an android platform which dominates personal devices. they recently successfully developed deep mind in which their algorithm just made the largest leap to date for AI. additionally, they now just announced the most advanced and latest accomplishment in quantum computing. other large companies are trying to catch up because I assume they all know what era is coming in the future. every large trillion dollar company will be coming out with their own version of this humanoid.
if you agree, disagree, or just want to comment the thread, id love to have a discussion! Thanks!
