They have created an AI called “Aiva” (Artificial Intelligence Virtual Artist) and taught it how to compose classical music
In humans our genetic makeup is a large part of our identity, as AI don’t have genetics, we have to categorise them by function and code, but that job is for humans at the moment, so why is it that we are obsessed with gendering these AI.
Robot pets have the same problems as virtual pets. They cannot be petted the same way that real pets can be and they lack the same type of affection that real pets can give to humans. They are the second worst type of pet to have (right after virtual pets which are the worst type of pet to have) as they would also be extremely hard to program to get the right type of movement of each animal. They would also be extremely un-cuddly and show near to zero affection to their owner/ their human.
