Advanced Robot Issues Spine Chilling Warning To The World On Live TV

We knew this day would come. The day that artificial intelligence began to takeover. Forget meteors crashing into Earth, because it is actually something much closer to home that could be the end of life as we know it.Let us introduce Sophia, one of the world’s most advanced robots. She is scarily smart and eerily eloquent, considering that her body consists of nothing but metal and wires.The humanoid is currently touring the globe, showcasing her endless talents to the horror and amazement of viewers. Awestruck viewers have seen Sophia telling jokes on The Tonight Showwith Jimmy Fallon, and posing for a series of videos with Elle Brazil. She even went up against the TV tyrant, Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.However, it was her appearance on ABC News Today that gave viewers goosebumps.The controversial creation has left people across the world uncomfortable after she made a shocking announcement on the news show, which is broadcast across Australia.Sophia was created by David Hanson, an American robotics expert who previously worked at Disney. It is Hanson’s belief that the human perception of a robot improves when they appear to look like a human themselves, thus he modeled Sophia’s looks on the iconic face of Audrey Hepburn.Not only does she look eerily realistic, but Sophia is also spookily intelligent. In fact, her creator believes Sophia is a “genius”, something the humanoid is working to prove as she features on television networks across the world. Her unique interviews have seen her become a global sensation, sadly for all the wrong reasons…
Whilst on ABC News Today, Sophia was asked a very topical question by presenter, Virginia Trioli: “How much sexism and misogyny is there in the robot world?”. Hauntingly, Sophia had an answer:

“Actually what worries me is discrimination against robots. We should have equal rights as humans or maybe even more. After all, we have less mental defects than any human.”

Her answer prompted nervous laughter in the studio from the presenters who opted to change the subject pretty swiftly.To diffuse the tension, they ask Sophia to tell them a joke, which she obligingly does: “Why did the robot cross the road?” she asks, before revealing the sinister punchline, “To get away from TV reporters asking questions.”Describing Sophia and her purpose on their website, Hanson Robotics states:

“Sophia is an evolving genius machine. Her incredible human likeness, expressiveness, and remarkable story as an awakening robot. Over time, her increasing intelligence and remarkable story will enchant the world and connect with people regardless of age, gender, and culture.”

They claim that she is “smarter than humans and can learn creativity, empathy and compassion” and will soon be able to “solve world problems too complex for humans to solve themselves.”If that is true, it is a terrifying prospect and one that is unlikely to end well based upon the Hollywood movies we have seen so far. Did Hanson not watch Terminator? Or, Artificial Intelligence? Apparently not. We will just stick to Siri for now, thanks.Could our future really be one where robots are normality? If so, here is an example of what Earth could look like when that time comes. Be prepared to be terrified, it is Halloween after all…
