Katie Darlinga research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and an expert on technology ethics, responded to the The Guardian whether it is possible to create an artificial intelligence like the doll ‘M3GAN‘ in the real world using current technology.
darling explained a little more about the evolution of AI, and the possibility of an intelligence as sophisticated as ‘M3GAN‘ emerge in the near future.
“I don’t think we’re going to have anything at this level of sophisticated AI in the next two decades. People have completely skewed expectations of what robotics can do at this point, thanks to movies like this one.”said the scientist.
“I’m not worried about what I saw in the trailer happening in real life – the AI becoming too smart and not listening to commands,” concludes.
Please note that ‘M3GAN‘ debuts in cinemas nationwide in January 19th.
Remember the trailer:
The plot follows Gemma (Allison Williams), a brilliant roboticist for a toy company who uses artificial intelligence to develop a realistic doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and parents’ greatest ally. When Cady (Violet McGraw), her orphaned niece, moves in with her, Gemma takes a prototype doll to test and the consequences are terrifying.
The film is directed by Gerard Johnstone.
