Artificial intelligence: the end of an era psychologists?


In the cult science fiction novels, such as "Space Odyssey" by Arthur C. Clarke or "Aurora" Kim Stanley Robinson heroes of interplanetary flights often have a dialogue with the ship, or rather with a supercomputer of the mission, endowed with artificial intelligence and abilities to recursive programming, and improvement of perceptive and cognitive abilities.

Engineers and philosophers agree that sooner or later a complex system of self-study on the basis of experience gained not only learn to recognize the emotions of a person and predict his thoughts, but they develop emotions, such as fear, hatred, love, envy. Perhaps, eventually these machines will be subject to the normal human mental disorders, such as HAL 9000 in the film Stanley Kubrick's "Space Odyssey 2001".

currently, scientists and engineers are only beginning to experiment on human interaction and social robots with artificial intelligence. And it started in the space industry, proven technologies which often find their "earthly" application.

So the first robot-astronaut has become a robot Kirabo (jap. Hope), developed jointly by Dentsu, the research center for advanced science and technology, University of Tokyo, Robo Garage, Toyota and JAXA. Kirabo played the role of a robot companion Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, which carried out its mission from 7 November 2013 to 14 may 2014.

in the Summer of 2018, an experimental robot with animated face cartoon went to the International space station (ISS) aboard a Falcon rocket company SpaceX. It was called Simon (Cimon - Crew Interactive Mobile Companion), that is, the mobile interactive companion to the crew. Simon was developed by Airbus in partnership with IBM. With it, researchers want to find out how in future there can be interaction between astronauts and robots.

Meanwhile, on earth, a Swedish startup Furhat Robotics has created a robot — a humanoid head, which is able to simulate dissatisfied with the interlocutor, verbal and facial expression. To use this achievement of high technology is assumed for the education and training of the sellers and other employees of the first line, who have to constantly come in contact with buyers and other customers, including unhappy.

Japan has long been a social robot pepper talks to school children and elderly people spend the evening with the robot-seal Paro.

it is Possible to assume that in the near future we will see how such intelligent assistants with artificial intelligence, will meet us at home and at work, pinpointing emotional state and to stay ahead of our desires, as is clearly demonstrated in the movie "Her."

And it's easy – the face of a man with his emotions can be digitized (visual identification), and all our thoughts and desires are easy to see, deciphering our digital DNA – it is necessary to connect the program to all of our social networks, email and search queries. And will open our "Johari Window". The film "the Search" is all about.

This is a BIG DATA technology and knows about all our open and secret desires. And why do we need a psychologist if we will be able to easily select the appropriate mode on the smart companion and to talk about the secret? Emotional contact, human warmth and warmth? Don't you think that in the modern world, fewer people, and smart computers more? They know us better than the closest people. One has only to access the data.

in the meantime, the leading technology corporations are only beginning to accustom us to the "smart" speakers...And maybe soon You'll conduct is not children's conversation with Alice from "Yandex.Station."
