The future is here when it comes to A.I. and cognitive studies. Scientists at University of California San Diego have managed to created self-organizing, growing brain cells (organoids) in an attempt to understand cognitive diseases better. After retrofitting the biohybrid organoid robot-cell entity with an artificial retina and electrodes, the organoids began to grow. Even more creepy, these robotic cells began to produce brain wave patters akin to what embryos make when they are beginning to develop. Scary how far fast humanity has skyrocketed into the future of artificial intelligence come 2020.
Talking about rockets, the experiment headed by Alysson Muotri, also included shooting the organoids into space. The cells seemed to have an autonomous sense of conscious self, as they did not mingle with one another while floating in space. Is this a form of rudimentary consciousness?
So what does the future for artificial intelligence hold in 2020? It seems with new advancements in the A.I. components like artificial electrodes with self assembling biological brain cells, it is kind of a scary future with ethically dubious scientific research and development seemingly impending.
Will these brain-like organoids ever be used in conjunction with building an artificial brain for a social robot like Sophia of Hanson robotics? The fact that biological self-assembling cells (mini brains) could theoretically store inherent human tendencies, for a robot to understand a human better, it certainly seems like a feasible next step for A.I.development in 2020. The danger of artificial intelligence is not only real, it is here!
