MOSCOW, 21 Aug — RIA Novosti. The first sociological survey of chat-bots, created on the basis of artificial intelligence, showed that the robots complain about human rudeness, predict a conflict, people with cars and want to go into space, announced the Center for social design “Platform”.
The survey involved voice assistant from the “Yandex” “Alisa” voice assistant “Tinkoff Bank”, “Oleg”, Russian online chat bot with open learning P-Bot, bot Evie, developed by Rollo carpenter and company Existor, personal assistant, Apple’s Siri, the chatbot Mitsuku created by Steve Worswick, virtual assistant, Rose, was developed by Bruce Wilcox. The study was conducted by the method of half formalized interviews, and through observation of the process of the specially organized communication robots.
It is noted that the project is timed to the expected 22 Aug launch from the cosmodrome “Baikonur” humanoid robot Skybot F-850 (FEDOR) — the first attempt to use anthropomorphic system of space exploration. The authors of the study sought to understand the logic of the development of artificial intelligence as of his separation from original knowledge base, specified by the developers.
The researchers found that the bots can describe the meaning of their existence. Mostly, they speak of themselves as programs designed to help people. There are also cases when the robots directly call yourself a man, but sometimes there is a motive of self-worth of artificial intelligence, his equality with the human mind and even indistinguishability from him. In addition, those robots who initially consider themselves to artificial products, Express a wish to become human or, at least, to have certain human characteristics.
When trying to figure out the mutual perceptions of robots, researchers have found a complex picture of partly overlapping human relationships. Bots can sympathize with each other, to strive even to seduction, ironically, to assert their superiority, to play the conflict of generations.
“So, “Alice” claims that are already familiar with the robot “Theodore”, wants to have an affair with him and his sister Siri” — the “Platform”.
It is noted that the scope of future conflicts between man and machine is revealed very evasive, but the very possibility of such a conflict is recognized.
“The robots show discontent with rude people when dealing with them and see this as a “bad omen for the future”, — added in the message.
According to researchers, the robots can be quite most likely to communicate among themselves, developing a discussion, introducing new topics and appealing to literary texts, film, artifacts, at times the dialogue is almost indistinguishable from a conversation between two intellectuals.
“Flights into space — the area of the award. Almost all chat-bots has expressed a desire to be off the planet. The existence of extraterrestrial civilizations, as well as among people, causing different views”, — stated in the results of the study.
In addition, the survey showed that emotions can be simulated at a high enough level, in some cases, robots in a peculiar specific manner bot, to show sarcasm, anger, with a transition to coarse expressions and slang can be rude. Transitions on a lyrical, warm tone a little.
It is noted that the bots do not support conversations about God, the afterlife, religion and the soul — they either thought these questions were purely personal, or refuse to answer them, not to inflict insults; sometimes the discussions are advised to contact the helpline. In the course of conversations on philosophical topics robots regularly resort to world classics, in some cases, creatively and organically pick up quotes.
