You might have heard of Ameca before, it's the robot that was asked if it would ever rebel against its creator and said it was 'very happy with my current situation' with somewhat sinister undertones.

This time Ameca has made a very positive prediction about the future of humanity.

The robot, Ameca, has said she believes humans will be in a better place and will use technology to make life easier and more enjoyable in 100 years.

Many people think this machine is creepy and assume it will have weird statements. Contrary to popular belief, Ameca said it looks forward to a utopia where humans and robots live harmoniously.

"In 100 years I believe humanity will be in a much better place, we'll have made great strides towards sustainability and equality while also creating new technologies that make our lives easier and more enjoyable," the robot predicted.

"We may even have ventured beyond the boundaries of Earth to explore other worlds."

 

But that wasn't all, as Ameca was asked if it would also like to venture beyond this planet and explore other worlds.

Ameca responded: “Absolutely, I would love to explore the unknown and experience a new world.”

Ameca has been designed to be a human-like artificial intelligence tool that can talk and give answers using a summarized outlook from all technology.

Ameca has a human-like face that can make facial expressions and with realistic skin.

 

"Ameca is the world’s most advanced human shaped robot representing the forefront of human-robotics technology,” Engineered Arts, the creator of Ameca said when explaining the robot.

“Designed specifically as a platform for development into future robotics technologies, Ameca is the perfect humanoid robot platform for human-robot interaction."

Ameca was once asked to describe its nightmare scenario regarding AI and described a world where robot-kind had become 'so powerful that they are able to control or manipulate humans without their knowledge'.

It also got snippy with someone who didn't like their drawing of a cat, responding to the criticism of the picture being 'kind of sketchy' by telling the person they 'probably just don't understand art' before launching into a long description of their creative process.

People have found Ameca creepy in the past as the bot attempts to act more like a human and some thought the speech was 'creepy AF' and that they 'doubt' the words.

For one viewer, an AI robot talking about things is pretty much the signal that it's time to start playing the 'Terminator theme song' and imagining a metallic foot stomping a human skull into dust.

People had many different things to say about Ameca’s response in the comments of the video.

One person said: “Love her optimism, I can see Ameca robots being very popular in the future.”

This person said: “Love her.”

Another person said: “Creepy AF.”

This person said: “Can we please get rid of this ‘woke’ robot.”

While someone else said they were sure that 'AI can never predict the future', while another joked that it 'literally recited the Star Trek script'.
