Temperamental AI: Boon or Disadvantage in Creativity? Artificial Intelligence has gained an increasing amount of wind in the past few years. Allowing machines to do most of our work for us allows us to focus (or not focus) on different aspects of our life. However, the question must be asked, will giving AI human-like emotions and thought processes actually help us be more creative or discourage us to “think outside the box?” First and foremost, we need to understand what a Temperamental AI is. As the name suggests, it is an artificially intelligent being that is capable of understanding emotions such as stress, happiness, and even sadness. Incorporating emotions into an AI mindset allows us to have a closer “human-like” experience and …show more content…
Allowing machines to be emotionally sentient would allow us to have the information we need while also making us less lazy than we already are. An example of a temperamental AI out in the real-world today is the one developed by Meet Carrot. Carrot is an excellent example of what AI would allow us to achieve if emotions were attached. Carrot, the AI construct with a heart of weapons-grade plutonium, incorporates to-do lists, fitness regimes, alarm clocks into our day to day lives allowing us to become more focused while not taking away any creativity from the human mind (Carrot). For instance, in the to-do list mode of the app, the AI has temper incorporated into it. If the user decides not to use the app for a few days, the AI is furious that the user became lazy and not used the app at all. Allowing emotions to play an important role in this AI’s mind helps us organize life and work by being an overlooking figure in our life (Sadun). This temperamental AI’s mind helps us lead a more creative and useful life than before. Another boon of having temperamental AI is that we would become more creative than we already are. As mentioned above, AI has a better ability in finding patterns from previous art forms. A clear-cut example of such creativity is the “Painting Fool” by Simon Colton. Colton’s AI has been trained on thousands of years of artistic forms and, it has learned to convert one art form into another (Moss). Having an actual AI that has learned to convert
Artificial Intelligence has a very beneficial impact on humanity. I believe that it can replicate the actions and decisions of humans without the impact of fatigue, time, or emotion. I think that if AI advances more jobs in the IT industry will be developed, and more people will want to work for industries that develop these new technologies. Machines driven by AI technology can replace the consistency, tedious work some humans have to do. In the article “Artificial Intelligence May Usher in a New Golden Age,” written by Faith Popcorn, supports my claim that AI could potentially reduce the tediousness of work for a person. It also says that robots can now diagnose patients, while doctors could not. Humans need to continue their ambition to
The ability to be emotionally intelligent grants someone the potential to change and be flexible. Regardless of the qualifications a person may have, if they lack the emotional qualities they are unlikely to succeed in various fields. Our work environments are rapidly changing, from the technology to the very foundations of the job qualifications. If someone is unable to adapt they will not proceed further. Daniel Goleman, an author and science journalist, presents in his book “Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ” the five pillars of emotional intelligence. These pillars are, Self- Awareness, Self- Regulation, Motivation, Empathy, and Social
Work done with the thought of an artificial intelligence so advanced that is could converse and have emotions just as we do is nothing but disturbing. Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the creators of Google, are quoted in Carr’s article stating, “The ultimate search engine is something as smart as people-- or smarter.” Pages also says “For us, working on search is a way to work on artificial intelligence.” For me this thought is scary. As much as I use and appreciate the ease of the internet, it makes me scared for the future in which my children will live in and how badly things could take a turn for the worse. All we can do is hope that our predecessors are smart enough to know when enough is enough, and the young people who are growing up in its world will be able to expand it in a healthy and helpful
The purpose of this paper is to bring to light a fresh new perspective of Artificial Intelligence or simply (AI). There have been numerous endeavours to make artificial intelligence which is inclusive of frontiers such as neural network, evolution theory, and so forth, not forgetting that a number of current issues have found solutions in the application of these concepts, the case still remains that each theory only covers a certain isolated aspect of human intelligence. To date, he gap that stands between a human being and an artificial intelligence agent still remains unabridged. In this paper an extrapolated version of artificial intelligence shall be discussed which will be augmented by emotions and the plausibility of inheriting a neural architecture from one generation to the next in a bid to make artificial intelligence to compare to the natural behaviour and intelligence of human
Today, the tech industry is creating artificial intelligence possessing real human emotions and which is leading to lonely people seeking love and human connection with a robot. We are reaching out to humans like robots and artificial intelligence to make us feel less lonely. For example in the science fiction movie “Ex Machina”, Ava who is an artificial intelligence, a human-like robot with human emotions. In the movie, the main character “Caleb” developed true feelings towards Eva and eventually falls in love with her. Eva also reciprocated the exact same feelings to Caleb as she has the ability to mimic human emotions. In future, we would be seeing companion robot which could take the place of our friends or help us when we feel lonely. Users will be able to create their perfect, silicon partner who is always there for them when
The first chapter offers a strong viewing of how humans have been trying to close the gap of emotional and intelligent machines since the 1970’s. In the first section of the first chapter, “Nearest Neighbors”, Turkle explains how Weizenbaum’s program ELIZA, which was being analyzed at MIT, was being used to show how words can be strung together. The students were inputting dialogue to the program, and it was responding. If the user would say something about their mother, the program would respond with a response that a human may offer. “ELIZA had no model of what a mother might be or any way to represent the feeling of anger. What it could do was take strings of words and turn them into questions or restate them as interpretations” (31). This model of thought would go on to be used throughout the attempts of
In today’s world, we are not yet to the point where we can create robots which can mimic human emotions. We are, however, at a point in time where work on artificial intelligence has already begun. Research
Perception has played an immense role in shaping what it means to be human. Our ability to perceive has given humans the ability to cognate at a higher level than any other animal and has given us the evolutionary advantage needed to progress our species. However, as technology has advanced and caught up to humans in the ability to think, it presses us to think of another dividing line that makes us into humans and leaves technology behind as just robots. This line is our ability to react emotionally to what we perceive. We are able to feel, which is the ability to have an emotional response to the environment we are perceiving. Any robot can now interpret its environment and make adjustments based on what the input was, but while doing this, robots are not able to sense what they are perceiving. In Sherry Turkle’s "Selections from Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other", she discusses what it takes for a computer to be close enough to be alive, and brings up the question of what is missing to make them the same as humans. Oliver Sacks also brings up interesting stories of how people’s experiences can bring them to question what it means to be alive, in his story “The Mind’s Eye”. Also in Ethan Watters’ “The Mega-Marketing of Depression in Japan”, he brings up that going through tumultuous emotions associated with things such as suffering, love, and death are what it means to be human. While the ability to perceive is not a unique
There are also limitations of how useful emotional intelligence is in the modern organisation. Morris and Feldman (1996) suggest that emotional facilitation could lead to increased levels of stress and cognitive dissonance in the workplace. This could arise from conflicting emotions or complex, contradictory ideas that would otherwise not cause any distress. It should also be considered that somebody who is emotionally intelligent in the aspect of recognising emotions would not necessarily be able to implement any behavioural changes. An understanding of complex emotions, the transition of emotions and mixed emotions can be considered as emotional intelligence (reference). On the other hand, this can also be seen as theoretical knowledge with no practical application; i.e. it does not necessarily mean that the individual would be able to effectively regulate his or her emotions, even though
This project will describe how emotional intelligence and understanding personality types are important for developing relationships with employees, vendors, customers as well as owners or stakeholders. Next, it will examine the extent to which you believe that personality profiles can help to reduce workplace conflicts through understanding how and when to use certain techniques to communicate with people. In addition, it will describe the types of personality conflicts with coworkers based on the personality assessment completed for this assignment. Finally, it will describe a time where I experienced a personality conflict and address how I handled that conflict.
The new field of affective computing has already made some progress in building primitive emotional machines, and every month brings new advances. However, some critics argue that a machine could never come to have real emotions like ours. At best, they claim, clever programming might allow
Emotions dictate our entire lives. For better or for worse emotions influence our actions, thoughts, personalities, and more than we are even aware of. Emotions make a person who they are. Humans are in fact emotional beings. The thing is we sometimes let our emotions control our every action, both good and bad, without even knowing it. Through emotions, however, we develop a sense of who we actually are as well. Within the works Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other (Sherry Turkle), Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do, and Become (Barbara Fredrickson), and Wisdom (Robert Thurman) certain studies are elaborated on in which humans discover themselves through their emotions. In Alone Together Sherry Turkle gives insight on human relations with robot companions/artificial intelligence. Barbara Fredrickson’s Love 2.0 is about the study of biological love and the connections needed to produce it. And Wisdom, by Robert Thurman, is insight on achieving selflessness and how it makes you an overall more connected person in the fabric of human life. These works each give a unique view on how emotions can influence people’s lives. Emotions have an immense amount of influence over an individual’s perception of the self and truly define who we are.
Artificial Intelligence is a topic within the public media that has existed for decades, but is now a concern due to the reality of human advancement and innovation in the field of science and technology. Many people believe that computers will become self-aware or sentient and view humanity as a disposable resource and gain supremacy. Reasoning that research on the technology should halt and not become more advance. Whereas others believe they will help catapult research and the economy forward, supporting the operations and innovations the technology offers. The complicated and divided solutions to the debate aren’t obvious, but there are more benefits to improving artificial intelligence than there is stopping it. Therefore, the negative effects people believe will occur can be resolved.
These jobs may look distinctly different from those they replace. Just as past mechanisation freed, or forced, workers into jobs requiring more cognitive dexterity, leaps in machine intelligence could create space for people to specialise in more emotive occupations, as yet unsuited to machines: a world of artists and therapists, love counsellors and yoga instructors (The Economists, 2014).
