AI Could Soon Have Feelings And Emotions That Mimic Humans, Deepmind’s CEO Claims

The rise of AI has got plenty of tech experts talking and recently, the CEO of Alphabet’s Deepmind also shared his thoughts on the matter.

Demis Hassabis spoke his mind during a recently held interview with CBS where he mentioned in detail the great potential of AI. The interview which aired on Sunday had him revealing how strongly he felt that AI tools could soon become self-aware.

This means they would be able to mimic the thoughts and feelings of the human mind. Moreover, so many philosophers say they are yet to settle down on the true definition of consciousness. But the term self-awareness means saying hello to a new world of realistic AI.

Therefore, it gave rise to the thought that AI entails emotions that copy those related to human nature. Meanwhile, a recently fired Google engineer spoke about unsupported claims about AI bots that Google was producing with human-like nature and sentiments.

This had experts reveal to tech news outlet Insider that this was classically programmed to have a realistic sound and it’s far away from creating such machines.

In the span of the past few months, we’ve really seen AI grow rapidly and it’s all thanks to the launch of the revolutionary product of OpenAI called ChatGPT. Its launch arose last year in October and it really took the world by storm.

Users could write essays, poems, CVs, cover letters, and even design graphics, and more. And that is what led arch-rivals in the industry, Google and Microsoft to produce similar tools to compete against it.

DeepMind was launched in the year 2010 by the CEO himself and two co-founders. The goal was to make AI systems that may carry out specific tasks well, almost near to the capability of humans. In 2014, the firm was taken on by Google and before we knew it, it was Alphabet’s subsidiary after the restructuring taking place at Google.

One of its biggest breakthrough achievements was designing a computer program that got successful in a board game against a real human champion player. And the game in question was outlined to be more difficult than chess.

This soon also gave rise to breakthrough medical research by the AI program that can predict protein shapes in the most accurate manner imaginable. And this is something that leading researchers have really had trouble with in the past.
