I am amazed by the evolution of robotics over the years. Have a look at what Boston Dynamics is doing to have a feeling. We have self-driving cars, medication delivery drones, and food delivery robots.
A few days ago, I read an article about Artificial Intelligence and intelligence in a broader meaning.
One of the most exciting things I read is that a clear sign of intelligence is the ability to disobey, which robots still do not have.
When engineers program their robots, they are trying to instill what we may call intelligence when looked at from the outside. We all know it is just a bunch of highly sophisticated algorithms that mimic intelligence. Robots can’t disobey. They make mistakes because the algorithm driving their behavior has hit some edge case that the engineers did not code or code with bugs.
I laughed hard when I read about a food delivery robot trespassing at a crime scene in Los Angeles. You know, those yellow stripes that police place to keep people away from their business.
The trespassing was filmed, and you may have a look here:
