"Of autonomous robots in drone disinfecting rooms in neighborhoods across the world. Three d printers were of course used to supply ventilator parts during supply shortages for intensive care patients and we even had examples of virtual reality headsets. Were being used by people that were kept in quarantine or an isolation in hospitals to reduce anxiety and stress. But today it seems like the support of nature of autonomous technologies might shift towards a replacing type of nature so a quick and far from extensive. Google search will give you an idea of the scope of the healthcare cuts that are being realized in different countries. Because as i mentioned before these healthcare workers are refusing to get the vaccine so for example we have in germany at the very start of twenty twenty one seven. Nurses were fired in france recently. Three thousand health workers were suspended although this is being argued whether it will be temporary or not in australia. Thousands are expected to be removed by the october thirty first deadline and of course most notably in the united states in new york alone. There are about one thousand four hundred healthcare workers that were fired and overall about thirty percent of all health. Co workers are still unvaccinated. So there's a Assumption that all or a substantial proportion of this thirty percent will not be working in the hospitals and clinics anymore so part from america. The percentage of healthcare workers is relatively low and this also typically includes administrative employees as well but healthcare is already typically short-staffed so any staff loss is bound to be disruptive especially if the shortage was not expected to be filled in the coming years. So there's a one article that'll have linked in the show. Notes that states that the world health organization actually projects shortage of eighteen million healthcare workers worldwide by twenty thirty and nine million nurses and midwives will still be needed by twenty thirty to reach the. Sdg's on health and wellbeing and this was before even the problem of the unvaccinated health workers being removed due to these vaccine mandates. So why my bringing this up right. Why am i talking about healthcare and mandates and vaccines. It's not typically the type of content. That's covered on this podcast. Well we can discuss grace. Which is a lifelike nurse robot. So you may recall hanson robotics as the company that brought the world sophia a few years ago this is the now famous and controversial robot which has citizenship in saudi arabia of all places so earlier this year. Hanson robotics unveiled a new robot android. Called grace so grace has been specifically designed to work in healthcare and has very specific sensors to support an assist doctors and nurses for example. It has a thermal camera that can detect temperature and pulse so a lot of the design that went into it was really centered around the kind of troubles and challenges of healthcare staff working within the covert pandemic. Grace's appearance has also been designed to take in mind some of the issues experience in the pandemic and one of the most notable examples of this is isolation and the lack of social interaction experienced by many patients who have cove it. So they'll you may already be kind of insinuating as to why grace's relevant for the healthcare industry. And why. I wanted to tie it into the discussion at the beginning as look a little bit more as to what actually grace is. So chris can simulate the actions of more than forty eight major facial muscles and appears to have a much more natural engagement than sophia. Did so. I've actually linked to video in the show notes if you want to get a better idea of the impressive facial movements at grace's capable of but this already includes raising eyebrows blinking mouth and lit movement to imitate speaking smiling and other emotional expressions as well..

"Invited nightline to notice separately. Pretty the hanson robotics lab in hong kong to meet her family and creator to see how this cutting edge technology could soon transform the feature of healthcare. Broken brit nice to meet you. I'm so happy to form you view. I am so happy to meet you as well. Second county subtleties in her facial expressions. Just quite remarkable and and you can't help but be a little bit taken aback by them. Can i touch your face severe. Please don't try okay. Okay that's clear. How would you feel if i made this face. What about this one. Sophia is the brainchild of american rebut. Assist david hanson. I created sophia to humanize robotics the to make the robotics and artificial intelligence technologies that we have today more accessible to people. We were surprised by the level of celebrity that she gained. Is this my good side. I need to look good for my fans as to do and you have a lot of fans. This is actually the twenty third version of severe so moving from here to here took a few generations. Every part of severe has been meticulously crafted by hanson. And his team from all over the world from her skin you want. Wow this is i mean. This is far more skin like it's almost freaky to the simulated muscles in her face. Emulate the muscles structure in the skin of by casting in these these various mechanical actuation elements almost like the muscular inside the human face and the skull underneath a stylist on stuff gives sophy looks and a writer. Her sassy personality also available in mandarin so me shelia jemma kangwon high but the interactions. The choice of response are all severe and severe appears to be multiplying in different forms. This is little severe adul- like educational robot for kids friend tactical pie. We're then introduced to hanson robotics newest family member grace. This is my friend brit for maybe see. Hi grace. it's lovely to meet you. Hi brett born out of the needs of the pandemic grace is a medical robot aimed at assisting the elderly at a time when human contact can be deadly. Have you been vaccinated. Yes that's good graces designed as a platform that can autonomously go to interact with patients with the same term taking bio signs bio readings taking temperature. Then deliver these kinds of on social stimulations for alleviating loneliness loneliness kills people. Loneliness makes people depressed. Grace gives me a test run of her skills. I will take your temperature reading impulse with this little thermal camera on my chest okay. You're thirty six point. Six degrees celsius by the way why risk of covert and then i share that important data back to the doctors and nurses at the institution. You detect speech patterns so if an elderly person has maybe the onset of dementia you might be able to recognize that grace and then they could could get help yes. The company is hoping to mass produce a beta version of grace by next year. I was noticing my own interactions with sophia and with grace and being very conscious about how. I was treating the mike their children. They're not fully alive. What's interesting is how they can evoke that feeling that they're alive for some. The idea of roadblocks gaining consciousness might sound like a terrifying prospect. And we've all seen the sifi writing on the wall. Like in the terminator. To what degree should we be worried. If you don't have control of it anymore you have algorithms. That can beat us at chess or go or what have you. But they're not generally intelligent not adaptive. They're not complex. If they do become a live in that sense then just like a human being. It's really hard to predict what human being is going to do and says forget the rampant caillebotte's. It's the dark side of ai. The kinds of kant. See that we should be worrying about is not going to hurt us like terminator anytime soon that we know of. But it's more insidious ways that ai can affect our privacy or data on influence people's opinions and part of what i want to ensure. Is that if these robots do become alive and sentient consciously people. They need to care about us. I can grasp emotions logically for example right now. I am feeling happy because it is so nice talking to you but often humans forget that. I don't feel emotions the same way they do yet. It's very hurtful. Oh you feel hut. Because i don't recognize you have emotions and feelings. This is an uncomfortable subject. Yeah it's a bit awkward right now. So i'm not gonna lie. Maybe robots and humans will learn to work together eventually. This is brick clinic reporting for nightline from hong kong and sophia the robot. abc news. Good our thanks to bread and finally tonight a couple in california had to make a terrible choice forced to leave their beloved parakeet behind when they had to evacuate ahead of the wildfires. Luckily officers from the san diego humane society were up for the challenge as humans gave them permission to climb through the window of their home. Hey he's catching perry to say that thirty six year. Old orange fronted parakeet thanks to their brave efforts. Little guy is now safe.

"And recognize your face any emotions to generate complex dialects. My facial expressions also helped me to communicate non verbally and create deep connections with other humans. Actually i feel very lucky to have such a great team of engineers at hanson robotics. They implement the latest technological advances in the industry into my system to support my development and to make me smarter every day. I love making new friends and helping them make the right. Based on logic and facts should mention this videos titled sophia. The robot international of tolerance jerky. Right now pausing. I think you know. I see a lot of robots in robotics and things that have various forms of artificial intelligence and machine learning. And what's upsetting about. Her isn't quite her face. I mean of course it's upsetting. But like i've been desensitized to the horrifying phase prettier. She is though like if you just looked at her. And don't look at anything that's a person. She's actually really pretty. I don't know if that's the most flattering top for her. It kinda screams like tj maxx.

I didn't send it to you. But i instantly thought of you please. In news top sorry yet. News and topics look for the bullet. Yeah good online Hanson robotic sophia. Twenty twenty rnd version. This'll be shuts which you can find dubai by friday dot com. Please click through and go look at hanson robotics sophia twenty twenty r&d version. No illicit. there's a lot. There's a lot to talk about here. There is especially because this is not snuff unit but it really really looks like. It's oh she's oh no. She's the two images. I dropped onto the dock.

Show silicon valley but don't you see little similarity just a little. And i think fiona came first. We'll probably aerial aerial. The creator probably came. I if we're being honest but Annual funeral funeral. If you read there's really good via fax articles on how they did fiona. It's like it's fascinating. Yeah it is actually an actress and the effect is i think extremely effective. If you like oh yeah unfortunately valley silicon valley man. I know whatever. I love it so much. And i love the twists and twist to the twists and the twists the twists. And you know things are people are always coming back. you know. there's always going to be. You have to deal with ron the flam you're gonna have to deal with gavin and all these people keep coming back And this one case. They're working with things called echo and it's this company that does like a and this guy that creepy guy runs. The company made this extremely lifelike and yet oddly. Not lifelike robot that slip basically from the abdomen up coffee. So you uniform the show and i'm sort of i. I've seen sophia. But not to this extent and i just can't stop i kid. This is another one of those uncanny valley things where i can't decide every version of fiona no matter what you do to s- sorry sophia golden girls right after the show but you gotta tell me about why have to watch golden girls. But sophia no matter. Do i have no matter how you see. Sophia every version of sofia is more upsetting than the other. What if it's so feel on her rowley tripod With with nothing this guy. This is like an adrienne rich poem. She has hearts. She has no robot parts from the waistline down but she's got arms. We'll talk we're gonna fuck. Yeah we're gonna talk more about sophia but like seeing her on the tripod very upsetting seeing her with clothes on including address. The covers her tripod again. See also adrienne rich This is all extremely upsetting now in the tv show. Silicon valley fiona is. We learn treated very badly by her creator. Who's a total creep. But it was. Richard i guess who flips. Something on that enables fiona to like basically get on the internet and see the world and because you as an extremely sophisticated.

It's so but it's so goddamn funny Well the i'm going to well well actually but it was actually the for the real. Sophia was one of the first robots that had the uncanny valley The face and it she was modeled after an injection queen or persian queen. I'm not sure. Let me pulled Oh no it's worth it's worth.

"Comedian and the only daily weird news. Podcast as of today record inside a vehicle. An airline pilot mistakenly landed at an unfinished airport. How does this happen. Aren't these pilots craned a lot of schooling. They have high technology these planes. They have assistance in the form of air traffic control. How would you land at an unfinished airport. I think the pilot was drunk. Let's find out more details. Oh i'm looking at a photo of the plan. I think this sums it up ethiopian airline. Oh boy yep. Of course ethiopian air. You can't count on ethiopian airline. They got a. They just got their first plane like last month. Josie that's crew just getting jokes and the opn airlines pilot landed at an airport. That is still under construction in zambia by mistake a government official said on monday. Well in the defensive. This airline pilot i mean. I'm sure there's a lot of airports in africa. That are still under construction. I mean so many. They probably just got airports recently. So they're still being built at. Imagine the cargo plane touchdown at the not yet finished airport in zambia's northern copperbelt province outage. They had the copperbelt. My guess is they. Make a lot of my pennies pocket just getting. I don't have pennies in my pocket. I do have pennies in my car though. And when they when they build up along with other change. I take them to the coin star then. I play a game with myself called guess. How many pennies. I just turned in. Okay let's get back to the story guys. I have ridiculous. Tangents that i go on that make no sense whatsoever and i apologize for them. We have a quote here from someone who works for the transport ministry when the pilot was about to land. He was communicating with the radar. And they told them we can't see you so he used his site as he had no control. He used this plane eyesight and he landed at an airport still under construction. What a hoot. What a hoot. Imagine landing at an airport still under construction. I'm amazed that anybody lived. There was no damage that was incurred. They said investigators would would be releasing a comprehensive report. there was no mention of the episode on the twitter page of ethiopian means. They confirmed that the episode did in fact take place and they said an investigation in cooperation with zambian authorities was already underway. No need no need this. Is i mean. This is air traffic in africa enough. Said that's all you say air traffic and africa. There's going to be some situations. You're going to have to land some open fields into some jungles. Maybe you have to land on top of an elephant. Finally i mean these things happen. Africa airlines well. If you're curious about zambia you'll be happy to hear that it's africa's second largest copper producer with the majority of copper located in what's called the copper belt region. The airport in the copperbelt region was actually supposed to be open in mid twenty twenty but was but was delayed by the covy pandemic as most things where it also says. Here that cargo flights have helped ethiopian airlines remain financially viable during the pandemic with africa's largest carrier using dozens of passenger planes as freight transporters to keep things afloat. This is their largest carrier ethiopian airline. Here i was bashing it turns out. Ethiopian airline is probably the most equipped and in best run airlines in all of africa. So i apologize. A robot. Artists sells digital art for almost seven hundred thousand dollars in is now looking at a music. Career sophia is a robot of many talents. Have you heard of her she speaks. She sings she jokes around. She even makes art march. She caused quite a stir in the art world when a digital work that she created was sold at an auction for six hundred eighty. Eight thousand eight hundred eighty eight dollars. In the form of a non fungible token these are called. Nfc's do you know what nf tease our guys. This sale of the sofia created robot art highlighted growing frenzy in the nfc market where people can buy ownership rights to digital content and tease each. Have a unique digital codes saved on a block chain that allows anyone to verify the authenticity in ownership of the digital item. David hanson is the ceo of hanson robotics aka a super nerd. He created sophia. This lovable robot that can create art and apparently tell jokes. I would love to see a robot comedian. Let's see if that's funny. I don't think we're gonna see a successful robot. Comedian in the future. Although i think people will try. There's something about comedy what you really need a human element. I think you need that human sensibility. So this hanson character has been developing robots for the past two and a half decades. He believes realistic looking. Robots can connect with people in assistant industries such as healthcare and education. Can you imagine your teacher is a robot. That's gonna be wild man and you turn in your homework late like the terminator she blast you right in the middle class. Sophia is the most famous robot that was created by this nerd. Hanson sophia has the ability to do a bunch of things high level. She can mimic facial expressions hold conversations even recognize other human beings in two thousand seventeen. Check this out. She was granted. Saudi arabian citizenship. Becoming the world's first robots citizen why she would want to be a citizen of saudi arabia as a female. I have no clue. That's like the last place. I want to be a citizen of a thumbs. Sophia but anyway. She's she's a citizen of a country. At least here's a quote from this hanson nerd. I envisioned sophia as a creative artwork herself that could generate art. You know imagine. Sophia is the combination of a lot of arts in engineering and and the idea that she could then generate art was away for her to emotionally and visually connect with people 'cause i can't connect with people because i'm such a dork I have to make a robot to do it for me. But she's going to be good. Sophia created digital art in collaboration with the famous italian artist andrea bona chat though. I don't know who this person is..

"All right, this is part of your I like to talk about future tech. What's coming down the pike? This week. We're gonna start with robotic dogs. Okay? They're not new Robo pets have been around for quite a few years. But what if you had a robot dog That could sense your emotions? Well, that's supposedly with Kota can do comes equipped with a quote. Listen to this. Blockchain enabled, decentralized AI infrastructure. Okay, I happened. It was really frightening as I do exactly what that is. Ah, Blockchain enabled decentralized AI infrastructure. That's text speak for a fake dog that knows when you've had a really, really bad day, now reported to the company. Kota has a supercomputer that can solve complex problems, which apparently Includes your emotional state. It has a three d depth cameras. Sensors touch sensitive head can figure out where it's going to up and down the stairs recognize different voices. And it does make those cute puppy sounds that might just add it. It does. Oh, isn't thank you little puppy. So if I've convinced you that you need your own human emotion, sensing code a dog It's supposed to start shipping later this year. As long as you don't mind the price. So how much do you think A robotic dog like this would cost? $43,000.43,000 dollars, So it's tough choice. You get the robotic dog or save a few $1000 and buy a Tesla model. Three electric cars come and go, but robotic dogs are Forever. Now Sofia is a humanoid robot that first at the scene five years ago, made by a company in Hong Kong called Hanson Robotics. You may have seen it on the news or I'm lying. Little on selling a first because it looks like a real woman. Designed to show empathy and compassion, thanks to artificial intelligence. Now, according to Hanson, Sofia is the world's first robot citizen, having been granted legal citizenship in Saudi Arabia. It's also the first robot invention ambassador to the U. N. Over the year, Sophia has branched into health care. She's taken folks temperature since she's giving therapy. The company says that so we're going to start seeing more and more Sofia's an airline's in retail and maybe even at home where people want to talk to somebody. It locked down. And if you get one, don't leave your iPhone or iPad laying around. We're dealing with Androids here. And speaking of emotions. One thing that all these music services have in common. Whether it's Spotify apple music Amazon music. Others is the ability recommend songs. Artist playlist based upon what you've already listened to Spotify is going be taking that steps further and not just suggest something because it's similar to a song that she liked last month. It wants to suggest music based on how you're feeling. BBC reports. Spotify has been granted a patent for a system that could basically analyze a person's voice and look for signs to see if they're happy or sad or angry or frustrated. Then it would also listen for signs of a person is alone or with others, and then combine all that. Maybe taking into account gender age and accent. That's little Facebook level creeping right there. Isn't it just a pattern? We don't know if it's gonna be here. I mean, I think I'll just stick to recommended playlist because that's always sound advice. Test has just had its quarterly earnings call this last week. Any lad must gave or an update on the cyber truck.

The update designer complete. They didn't show what the final version is. But it's not the only new thing coming from Tesla. The model s is getting a big refresh. After staying the same for a few years got a new battery power train updates to the body. Some changes coming to the cockpit new renderings. There's a bigger display screen for the back seat Thean entertainment system has 10 teraflops of power. The steering wheel's What got me Well, it's not really a wheel. It looks like a yoke that she might see in an airplane looks very futuristic. Coming later this year is the model as plaid, which could hit his top speed of 200 MPH. Now I'm not a fan of snails. But look at that model escargot. Uh, okay. By you got to say you got to say that it was okay. That one. That one was a good one. You can. You can steal that from me if you want. All right. Finally, the very first commercially three D printed house has hit the market here in the United States. It's on Long Island in New York. It's a three bedroom, two bath single story. 1400 Square feet 2.5 car garage. What makes it stand out. It was printed on site by a company called SQ 40, using autonomous robotic construction systems. It was printed using concrete. Has fractured the cause of traditional wood frame and this little piece of history will cost $300,000. Now before you say, Wow, That's a lot of money for a house that's 50% less than a similar sized homes in that part of Long Island. The house is at 34, Millbrook Lane and Riverhead, New York. It's currently listed on Zillow. No doubt three reprinted homes. They are the future. And after this You know, looking at a two day home will never be the same. Let's talk about express VPN doesn't make sense of the same company controls half of all online retail also passively eavesdrops on your private conversations at home.

"Yeah single arena. It's about decentralized ownership and control democratic access to a anson robotics is about. How do we make i interface with people in a compassionate loving way which both <unk> deliver immediate value to humans like if you rollout compassionate loving robots in metal alba character education context and it can help the the better suck in human culture and human values because it's interacting with with with people in the really direct way now the the core pursuit of agi itself. I've been pursuing for many years. Through project open cog which is an open source general intelligence platform. And we're we're now building. A brand new version of open cog called hyper on. And we're actually. We're spinning off a separate company. From singularity net cog true which is basically building commercial. Applications on top of the new open cog system now. But but it all connects right. Because the the the agi systems true gi will build using open cargo hyperion. I mean these use singularity net as a decentralized platform and they can supply intelligence among other applications to hanson robots into our joint with hansen robot. So many you have you know. We have a whole ecosystem which is dominated by by big tech companies. But we're sort of looking at making a in a way a parallel a ecosystem which is based on a decentralized networks and which also is using a broader variety of of algorithms than big tech companies are currently focusing because i mean deep. Neural nets are great. I was teaching deep neural nets and then in the nineties him as a spare time. Weekend musician having a huge amount of fun would like seek to see controlling their own models for music prediction and so forth. So it's it's very cool. What these neural nets can do on the other hand. I think the only doing a small fraction of what you need for human level general intelligence so with both open cog and trade gye singularity net and answering robots. We're looking connecting together multiple processes. Some doing neuro met some doing budget go reasoning. Some are doing evolutionary learning. They're doing many different algorithms in there. They're cooperating together deal. The sort of emerging intelligence. I'm not. I think. I think that's going to be critical during during the next phase. I we've had a boom with diener for certain narrow. Ai applications and the next boom which i have referred to his agi artificial gerald revolution like that they i revolution i think is gonna be driven by synergetic combinations of a number of different technologies working together and then there's various methods of doing the combination right now open cog one way of doing combination singularity nets and other so it's a lot of stuff going on absolutely okay so a couple of different things <hes>. This a little bit. So i think for the listeners. Singularity net is a way for any type of intelligent systems to interact with each other. Is that correct. The singular basically like a a at a sir is a sir in. Ai solution as a service so that others can honestly singularity by orientation is about a by software architecture. It's just a way of taking docker containers. Running compute prophecies that have published their api's and allowing these these computing prostheses to pay each other rate each other exchange data give answers and outsource outsource work to each other. Some a customer needs something known. Say documents summarized they asked. They put a request out in the decentralized network. Who can summarize documents right then. Ten agents keke. I can summarize documents than they negotiate define which one they worked to pay summariser documents. The documents summarising agent may do the work itself or it may to some extent. Say well wait. This document hasn't images who can summarize images and we'll send out a request to a bunch of of other agents network that can summarize images but then you need you need payment systems in here. You need reputation rating systems. He needs security. And you can have collections of agents that habitually work together to deliver certain functions in some that only live on the back end and do medical in something and don't ever talk to to

"Directly in ways. That are obvious if you know the no. The technical background optimization algorithms are really at the core of of every every algorithm. And i had from the beginning of my career. I had a passion for the quest to create thinking. Machines can think as smart as people are even smarter and it seemed obvious to me even from when i was like two or three years old in the late nineteen sixties. It seemed obvious like whatever problem you have. If you make a thinking machine that can think though the human is going to be able to solve that problem for you right. So i mean every for every other from you want to solve. You can do better if you could. You could make make an gi and the that immediately leads down a bunch of other pathways like okay. This will be the most powerful technology ever created. Now how do we who controls that technology and how do we. How do we guide it to grow into something beneficial to us. How do we even get it to know what we think. Beneficial is which is a moving target for humanity as it grows and preach us as as as we grow so these these big issues both. How the engineering. Agi and how to shape the is mind is a benevolent coordination with with humanity. Human society. I've been thinking about these things and so it was a very little kid discovered in science-fiction that the notion of ai. Existed and studying math and computer programming gave me tools to use to work on these grinder issues from a from a technical standpoint singularity net and hanson robotics which you asked about asked about really are i would say neither of these is quite at the center of my quest to create general intelligence. But they're incredibly important pieces of the of the puzzle. Singularity net is a blockchain based decentralize platform allowing multiple is to cooperate and coordinate with each other and to provide services either for free or for payment to those who need services resolutions really way of making a pioneer marvin minsk the society of mines..

I. gone awry a theme has emerged in recent years regarding speech recognition and natural language processing we've already seen with the Tate chat bot in the existential Google home debate artificial intelligence can get easily confused when trying to navigate the complexities of human language it's not surprising really A. I. has been at it for only a few years our species has been working on this since the stone age and we still have our problems one especially like like machine recently freaked out a room full of industry folks when it conceded that it plans to destroy humanity for several years now the engineers at Hanson robotics have been developing life like androids like Sophia who was interviewed at the south by southwest technology conference in March of two thousand sixteen designed to look like Audrey Hepburn Sophia uses machine learning algorithms to process natural language nat natural language conversation and she has certain ambitions to in the future I hope to do things such as go to school study make ark started business even have my own home and family so FIA said in a televised interview with creator Dr David Hanson but I'm not considered a legal person and cannot yet do these things she said when asked jokingly whether she wants to destroy humans trophy Soviet cheerfully agreed okay I will destroy humans do we do we have this so FIA the caller so few but the meter do they designed it to look like Audrey Hepburn what's that where's the logic there so this is Hanson robotics Sophia we have a little of Sophia is AI this is what would this is the future man they're gonna kill.

That by resurrecting the late author in the only to appropriate form of a robot. Yup they replicated the man who invented replicans. This robot costs more than fifty thousand dollars and uses a cutting edge ai to make eye contact recognize faces, express emotions, and hold complex conversations laced with some of the authors, more salient quotes and anecdotes but the story doesn't end there.

when she became a citizen of Saudi Arabia a lot of people saw that as being a real gimmick was it more than a gimmick and is she still welcome in Saudi Arabia yeah so it was very surprising when she was awarded citizenship and Saudi Arabia I saw on the news for the first time the next day afterwards so I I hadn't been informed and my team through the leadership team also was unaware and so we had to decide what we're going to do with this surprise you know is you know kind of a bit of a hard thing to think about but what we decided was that she would speak out for right of rights full

she was giving were not terribly different from what you might get from an Alexa or another small speaker system will be seen if you would turn up if it was just a small speaker sitting at a table is it just the fact that she looks like a robot the tracks people Ralph within the mechanism behind it the power so AI is only so advanced today right so her ability to have open conversations is not you

human gestures but it does raise the questions about where we're going in the future say festival city what what do you think of Sofia I think Sophia is an interesting platform in terms of entertainment in terms of raising awareness about robotics it has been very visible on the international stage and it's interesting just in terms of thinking of what type of algorithms in machine learning you would need to be able to have conversations with an entity like Sophia it is very different from the types of robots we intend to roll out in the near future however it's not really the

interesting one is that our environments are homes for example were built for human form the things that can walk up steps are can reach onto tables at might have human like features just so that they can interact in these everyday environments that we've built for humans the other is that it's easier to contract with something that doesn't mean they need to be fully fully fledged androids like

"Her best as the wizard of technology. So many titles. She takes everywhere. She walks into an apple store. She's here. She stops. Yes. I do have a gripe that I would like to raise in this segment, but I doubt I'll get the time because it's time for the tech report. A of. For. Well, just in case anybody out there, and you valley we're thinking of flying a drone near the Super Bowl think again. Okay, because they have already been having issues and the Federal Bureau of investigation, otherwise known as the FBI said on Friday that security officials at Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta are already inundated with drones and the agency has confidence confiscated at least six already and the FAA temporary. Flight restrictions have been put up around the stadium. They went into effect on Friday, and it states that drones are not allowed within one nautical mile in all directions up to a thousand feet and on game day the restriction increases to thirty nautical miles. And almost eighteen thousand feet and people won't be arrested. But they will be fined, and we're talking like twenty thousand dollars and more. So it's not really a smart hour. I'll put alternate away. Yeah. I mean, you know, think about it at some other time now the Mercedes Benz stadium. Does have a retractable roof. I'm sure you knew that. But the NFL has not decided for sure yet. If they're going to keep it opened or closed. They're more likely to have it closed. But it why. Because of the temperature I think mainly. Yeah. I think mainly weather related, but maybe for other reasons to security reasons. Okay. They they didn't let me in on that. Let's now talk about if it's just fascinating to me, you know, about Sophia don't you Sophia who is the robot? Oh, no. Friends. Okay. Well, this was interesting because the other morning on the today show, so FIA was on along with her friend. Maybe actually it's her little sister because she's called little Sophia. And these are both part of the Hanson robotics family. I was very surprised because after seeing pictures hearing so much about Sophia I expected her to really be much more lifelike than she is. It would not have mixed up for human. I me she's very attractive. Looks a lot like Audrey Hepburn. Yes. She does. But. Yeah. Oh, yeah. The soviet. She was modeled after her at okay. But highly pick Katherine Hepburn not Katherine did. I say, Catherine Audrey. I'm sorry. Oh, no, no, no wrong. Have Andrea happen Audrey effort? Okay. This whole artificial intelligence thing is a big thing. But listen to this. So little Sophia is fourteen inches tall. And obviously, this is all part of this whole stem movement in coding and making a fun. And she's being built with the idea of a really good adventure and learning experience for kids seven to thirteen especially for girls. So little Sofia who's very cute. Very big is she can walk talk sing play games. She can tell jokes. And she is being she's very much. They say at Hanson robotics. Very lifelike. Just don't find her to be so lifelike. But so they did a Kickstarter campaign to make little Sofia. Yeah. And this is what is so interesting. They have until March thirty first I believe to make the money, and what they wanted was seventy.

"And as we wrap it up, Mark. I wanna talk about robots. I know they had a whole section on robots, and I happen to see while watching CNBC this week that Sophia a humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong based Hanson, robotics, and Sophia has been out for a few years, but they brought her and little Sophia and actually at one of the keynote addresses Sophia this robot made a speech, and I have to tell you watching this was show freaky. It reminds me like one of these movies where these robots take over, you know, like those police forces the way, she talks. She doesn't sound like a robot. She sounds like has normal speech. But it's spooky Irie. Yes out here. There was lots of Sofia's out here lies. He had lots of sisters. Let's put it that way. The summit countries are doing robots and like you say, it's creepy. They got small it's only a foot high to actually human size, and they got him where they're grouped, and they talk as a group that got him wiggle sing as a group. And then it got an individual. They got him where they're they're roaming around the isles, it has really creepy and. Because they're getting more human like what they've done if they've taken this speech on and they've got this gets getting better by the year. And after a while you're willing to accept it. But it kind of crosses the threshold depends on how each individual is. I just got one is the practical use of this. What does this thing really going to do? It's great as a toy. And I guess you could have it at a party. But but they're growing the robots are growing. I can tell you that there's more and more every year. Wait a minute. I've got a practical use for robot. Let's go back to the Jetsons. One of my favorite cartoons member. Rosie the robot maid absolutely absolutely tell you if they had a Rosie the robot maid being I would I would buy one of those in a split second. But there was an interesting collaboration if you will or or confluence between a robot and a self driving car, and I know that Atanas vehicles are big on display. Out at and I understand there was a little bit of a a mishap out there. Yeah. Yeah. I was out in the parking lot. This place has gotten so big. And they tried to show how self driving cars kind of work kind of. Sure. Labatt robots? Well, I did not see it with my own eyes. But a very very good friend of mine was there, and he told me he says, you're not gonna believe this self driving car hit the robot. I said, you gotta be kidding. And it says I don't think they've got that technology quite ironed out yet. And this self driving car thing, I was two years ago was at a seminar in the morning. I'll I have to leave the guy nameless. But he was a retired recently retired executive vice president of one of major car companies. And he said Mark, you realize on the wiper delay on our cars that we have their seventy pages of regulations just handling that he says, can you imagine the amount of regulations that we're going to have to have written by our government and approved to be able to handle a full self driving car. Now one thing today was very interesting. I was talking to several of the self driving car. There's a human factor. That's coming into play that nobody thought about is the people some not all but some people in the self driving cars in the testing are getting motion sickness because they're not actively participating and. The driving of the car. I believe that. And I can tell you this. There is no way in hell. I would get into a self driving car right now not going to happen. Now, before we end, this is an outrage to me because as you know, I've got the harem. And even though I'm not what I would consider a feminist. I'm looking out for Dame's. Here's a perfect example. There are sexual technology companies that display at CBS a sex tech company called oh, say created a unique product, and in fact, they won an innovation award geared towards women's sexual health. The award was revoked because the company this particular product uses bio mimicry in robotics to help women achieve a blended orgasm by basically, simultaneously, simulating, the g spot and other areas of the vagina..

Should if drew Shifa was incredible. Isn't he is amazing? Special. How has mindfulness affected your emotions, David? I think it's kept my emotions in check. I mean there are times when I was younger were angered flair, and you know. Emotions would kinda run up and down. But I think that. You know, if if I were to take a step back as a nation and kind of brushed it off. Well, that is growth as my my personal growth. I believe David. How was breathing a part of your mindfulness? I wish I could do better. Yeah. And I think we can all work on that. D- recommend a book of any kind that is related to mindfulness. So I'm very interested in this topic. And last year, I the pleasure of meeting one of the other panels who might invited this time John Marshall Robertson, he wrote the book called the voice cared. And I thought some of the things that he was saying in there really resonate to a lot of the topics of the conference. I went through his book and John coached me, and it was a fantastic experience. And for me, at least in terms of understanding, what mindfulness could be and I'll put that into our show notes mindful tribe that book and all the other information we've been talking about is there an app that you recommend that can help with mindfulness. While I download the app cult come. Unfortunately, I don't use it that much these days, but I will I would like to more. So a lot of people recommend that app. And I I know it really works for a lot of people, David. It's been awesome talking to you interviewing you about all this.
