TN Note: If people cannot be trusted to think rationally, how can robots who are programmed by humans do so? Machines will never be human, but mankind will be deceived into thinking that they are.

The AI, called ‘Virtual Actor’, is expected to be online within the next year and a half.

The researchers say it will understand the context of what is going on, as well as keeping up with unfolding events.

The machine needs the ability to study not through programming or reinforcement learning, but as a thinking person, the researchers said.

‘Any action has an emotional connotation, as a result of which certain relations develop, such as trust, subordination, leadership,’ the lead researcher said.

Researchers in Russia are expected to reveal an emotional computer within a year and a half, which will be able to think like a person and build up trust, its creators say.

The system, called ‘Virtual Actor’, is being created by the National Research Nuclear University in Moscow.

Its name was given because one of the main functions it will serve will be as an actor, playing the role of a specific person.

‘The researchers say it will understand the context of what is going on, as well as keeping up with unfolding events.

The machine needs the ability to study not through programming or reinforcement learning, but as a thinking person, the researchers said.

The machine itself must be able to set learning goals, formulate questions to achieve these goals and actively seek the answers.

The researchers started by looking at how the human brain works.

‘Our principal goal is to formulate the basic principles that natural intelligence in the human brain is built upon,’ Professor Alexei Samsonovich from the Cybernetics Department.
