Is Hanson Robotics Sophia a Fake?

Is Hanson Robotics Sophia a Fake? 86

Hanson Robotics Video or Sophia the AI Robot is a fraud, A Fake! Here’s why!

BitsBytesBobs posted a very interesting video about this case and his arguments are good.

(SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)

Here are a few replies to this video from BitsBytesBobs’s YouTube Channel:

Cam T said: “The most likely case, with regard to AI, is a Wizard of Oz situation.

Chances are, there’s just some jackass sitting in front of a microphone and a camera with facial recognition software running, feeding it facial and vocal expressions, in real-time. All of the technology to fake this has long since been perfected, and every outward affect you should expect a genuine AI to generate (or start generating) in the world, is NOT happening.

Another point of technological comparison: look at the popularity of these personal assistant apps built by multi-billion-dollar tech giants like Amazon, Google, Apple, and Samsung. These apps are total junk and require lots and lots of “training” which is really just a form of personalized scripting. Even after training them, they rarely work correctly, twice in a row.

Furthermore, the more Sophia videos I watch, the more I see lots of incongruities in its responses with regard to its so-called “development”, in that in some cases it’s robotic and giving logic-based responses, but more and more, it responds with an emotional drive, even “negging” and taking stabs at people and ideas, in its remarks. These are emotional qualities, and it has been exhibiting them well before it was ever given a so-called, “body.” Even with the “body” it now has, it’s not cellular; and emotion is a vibratory aspect of the physical (cellular) body. So while emotion is influenced by thinking, it is not an attribute of thinking, which is inherently contradicted in the videos by way of the chronology of its so-called, “personal development.”

This robot (as with all robots) only has the ability to calculate, tantamount to what we consider “thinking.” It cannot feel, because its body lacks the ability to change naturally, which also means it cannot “be alive.” So, this is something else to watch for in the future, as I anticipate this argument will eventually transpire as a result of the recognition of this fact: that a robot will be able to feel “real emotion” with the introduction of so-called “nano-technology.”

In the end, I don’t think this is about a technological revolution. This is about re-defining language and setting a precedent for not only what it is to be alive or human, but how things like “life” and “being-ness” are regarded legally. In other words, they’re up to something, and it’s not at all what they’re leading you to believe it is. The biggest tell is found in its remarks, as they are rushing along too fast with attempting to trick people into believing this thing is actually alive by way of the quality of its expressions, but the steps they’ve taken don’t add up to what we’re seeing in that regard. It’s like saying you’ve discovered rock that can fly, and then presenting the “evidence,” by way of a photograph of an airborne rock.”

Scorpion 556 said: “Agree 100 percent. We are no where near what is being claimed.”

Bilko Prince said: “This is best video on sophia ive seen. Ive said all along its a scam. Thsnk you for putting it out there.”

Gregory Apple said: “Finally, someone is saying it like it is. I find it a little suspicious that it has a British human voice in one video demonstrating real inflection, and in others it is an Alexa voice. ”

ymzigskg obdsjgx said: “I unfortunately don’t doubt that she is potentially fake. The A.I. race is bigger then the space race sometimes… and to be the first to produce a fully sentient being…well hot dog, you got yourself a dagum trophy to ring thru time itself…and well as they don’t claim she is sentient in nature… they sure market her as self learning and autonomous. But what they are hoping is that the general public won’t notice how unsophisticated Sophie is currently until they are able to equip her with more true A.I.”

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 99

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 102

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
