China has created the world's first "child with artificial intelligence" who can get angry and even wipe up spilled milk
Chinese scientists from the Beijing Institute of General Artificial Intelligence (BIGAI) have created the world's first model of a child with artificial intelligence. What distinguishes it from an ordinary toy is its ability to learn and develop.
The robot is called Tong Tong, and it can imitate human consciousness, show basic facial expressions, emotions of anger and joy, distinguish between right and wrong, and perform some actions at the level of a 3-4-year-old child. This is reported by The Byte Futurism.
The scientists said that an artificial intelligence "child" can not only execute commands given to it virtually, but also set new tasks for itself.
"Tong Tong has a mind and seeks to understand the common sense that people are taught. She distinguishes right from wrong, expresses her attitude to different situations, and is able to determine the future," the developers' description says.
Attendees at the presentation could interact with the robot and watch it demonstrate human skills. For example, it repairs crooked photo frames and wipes up spilled milk.
Visually, an AI doll bears little resemblance to a child. AI controls an invention that resembles a cartoon character.
Scientists aim to develop Tong Tong's abilities to adapt to human environments, perform tasks in complex environments, and understand cause and effect relationships in the future.
