If you’ve used the internet, you would have come across a Captcha test, which has been designed to prove that you’re not actually a robot and are a person with real needs. Generally if you aren’t human, being able to pass the tests isn’t something that comes as part and parcel of your skill set, but all of this has changed with the creation of this particular robot, which IS able to pass these cognition tests.
Sure, the robot might not actually be thinking for itself while it was passing the Captcha test, but you definitely start to get the sense that it’s not going to be too long before they make ones that actually do. Machine learning is getting more and more advanced by the day and soon we’re probably going to need to deal with a robot uprising and have to send Terminators back into the past to make sure we don’t end up ever building SkyNet and causing an apocalypse (that’s Terminator movie reference just in case you didn’t get it).
