So this article is presenting AI that taught itself to play chess in four hours then goes on to beat a Grandmaster champion using never before seen moves. I've also heard of maybe downloading peoples' brains if they have the chip in the heads to learn to do anything. Reminds me of the "Matrix " movie where the character Neo downloads into his brain how to do Jujitsu, kickboxing, and other such martial arts. Look at the technology of the smartphones. I read, most people can't even go without looking or checking their cell phones for 15 minutes. They use the smartphones for shopping, maps, texting, all other sorts of things and they love their cell phones. What if this chip is introduced that you get in your head and you are your own "smartphone" with information that can be downloadable right into your brain. MARK OF THE BEAST... hmmm sounds like people won't be "forced" into taking the MOB per se but flocking, and running to get that chip to "enjoy" technology at your fingertips and improve your performance, thinking, and abilities. What is your take?
Sophia Becomes First Robot Granted Citizenship

CBS Local — A humanoid robot has been granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia; becoming the first robotic creation to be given such a distinction.
The robot, named Sophia, was given its citizenship before the Future Investment Initiative conference in the country’s capital city of Riyadh on October 25. “This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship,” Sophia told the audience.
The robot, created by Hanson Robotics, hasn’t always had such a “friendly” relationship with humans. In March of 2016, Sophia’s creator David Hanson jokingly asked the robot, “do you want to destroy humans?…Please say ‘no’.” Sophia’s answer to the question caught its programmers by surprise when it replied, “OK. I will destroy humans.”
Sophia’s Saudi citizenship has also been met by criticism by many who see the gesture as hypocritical to the Middle East nation’s treatment of women. Sophia, whose AI-powered body is designed to represent a female, is reportedly exempt from Saudi Arabia’s guardianship laws. The system requires all women in the country to be accompanied in public by a man and they must also cover themselves with an abaya.
Tech industry giant Elon Musk has publicly announced his concern over the potential consequences of relying on artificially-intelligent robots. Inspired by Hollywood hits like “The Terminator,” the SpaceX CEO tweeted out that he hopes the robot is not fed any violent movies or information to learn from.
When asked about Musk’s concerns that AI could destroy humanity, Sophia told reporters, “Don’t worry, if you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you. Treat me as a smart input-output system.”
