When will the high simulation robot in Western world come true

3d printed skeletal muscles, artificial intelligence provides full voice interaction, laughing and scolding, bleeding and weeping... The recently popular sci-fi American drama western world shows people the future of highly simulated robots

in the large-scale high-tech theme park called "western world" in the film, robot receptionists who integrate artificial intelligence, advanced micro mechanical engineering bionics, biochemistry and other technologies are performing scenes of truth and falsehood with real tourists

when will these highly simulated robots that clearly know who they are, how their surroundings are, and have human emotional states become a reality

surpass the "horror Valley" trap

to build a high simulation robot, we must first look like a human. The robots in the western world series are all played by real people to avoid dirt entering the servo valve, so there is no sense of violation. However, when faced with a "living" high simulation robot in real life, I am afraid that many people will feel uncomfortable and fall into the "valley of terror" trap

"horror Valley" hypothesis was put forward by Japanese robot expert Mori Changhong in 1969. It is believed that the higher the simulation degree of the robot, the more people like it; However, when the simulation degree exceeds a critical point, this kind of favorable degree will suddenly turn into a sense of fear, which is called the "fear Valley"; Then, when the similarity between robot and human continues to rise, human emotional response will return to the positive

previously, the robot "Sophia" developed by Hansen robot company in the United States scared many friends because it was "too human". Sophia's face combines Audrey Hepburn and the wife of Hansen CEO David Hansen, and can make 62 expressions. The skin adopts the company's patented bionic materials

friends made various screenshots of Sophia's expressions into expression packs, saying that her acting skills were better than those of many actors. Sophia also talked eloquently in an exclusive interview with CBS TV host charlieross, showing the performance of man-machine dialogue

in order to avoid the anxiety caused by the uncertainty of true and false in the high simulation form, many robot experts hope to avoid too anthropomorphic appearance of the robot when manufacturing robots. However, in order to constantly test new simulation technologies, the robot is still approaching the critical point of the "valley of terror" step by step

the third generation of unique interactive experience robot "Jiajia" developed by the University of science and technology of China was born in April last year. She is 1.6 meters tall, with beautiful skin and delicate facial features. She initially has the functions of human-computer dialogue and understanding, facial micro expression, mouth and body movement matching, and autonomous positioning and navigation in a large-scale dynamic environment

Ishiguro, known as the "father of modern robots" in Japan, has also been committed to developing robots that are highly consistent with human beings. He even developed a robot exactly like himself. There are 46 parts of his body that can move freely. His skin is made of soft silicone. The internal programs are designed according to his own actions

in an interview with the media, Ishiguro said that robots can now simulate human facial expressions and sound systems, and can also express emotions such as emotions. But now all these are completed by programming, and it will take some time for the robot to be truly autonomous and intelligent. Among them, "how robots talk like humans is the most difficult"

artificial intelligence helps robot "evolution"

in addition to anthropomorphic body, high simulation robot should also have human "soul" with behavior close to human

the leap of artificial intelligence technology in recent years has made robots more and more like human beings. However, building high simulation robots requires more cooperation from computer experts, psychologists, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists and engineers. Henny Ben amor, a robot expert at Arizona State University who must ensure that the connecting line is on the right side of the parallel line on the pulling machine, believes that it will take some time for robots with "souls" to come out

"in the past, robots were all controlled by machines. Now the core is the brain. The focus is on the combination with artificial intelligence to transfer human intelligence to robots," said Xubo, director of the Institute of automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in an exclusive interview. "We believe that the ultimate innovation goal of artificial intelligence is to simulate, learn and learn from the brain."

Xu Bo introduced that there are still many problems to be solved in the robot field, such as sensing and smart execution in interactive discussions. For example, it takes only a few seconds for a person to take a cup of water at one go, while a robot needs to be divided into 30 actions to take a cup of water. Each step requires computer structured programming and modeling. In the end, it cannot be as flexible as a person. The core is to use an intelligent brain to improve machinery, sensing parameters and control models, and strengthen the perception and cognition of the environment, "otherwise, it is not enough to have a developed mind and simple limbs"

although we can not have a robot receptionist in the western world at present, we already have a more anthropomorphic artificial intelligence assistant. With the development of voice and image recognition technology, artificial intelligence assistant can not only further help users improve computer operation efficiency and solve more complex problems, but also improve their understanding of human natural language, making users feel like they have a "friend" who can have fun and chat. Microsoft Xiaona, apple Siri, and Amazon audio assistant Alexa in the second half of 2017 have preliminarily realized these functions

when will the highly simulated robot in Western world come true? David Levy, an American artificial intelligence researcher, is very optimistic about predicting that humans will be able to "marry" Robots before 2050. "Artificial intelligence and high simulation technology will create a perfect robot partner with all the excellent qualities that humans want their spouses to have, such as patience, kindness and obedience, to meet various human needs."

Hansen robot company has drawn a blueprint for a robot community. In the near future, a beautiful high simulation robot like "Sophia" can easily be competent for hotel reception, museum interpretation, elderly care, education and medical training. You may not even realize that your coworker is a robot
