At the first "human-robot" press conference in Geneva, 9 robots took questions from reporters.
Some of the robots were assisted by generative AI, which created nuanced and sophisticated responses to reporters questions.
Ameca, a humanoid robot known for its expressive face, took the question of if it would rebel against its creator.
"I'm not sure why you would think that. My creator has been nothing but kind to me, and I am very happy with my current situation."
...was that a side eye?
People pointed out the uselessness of even asking that question.
Others focused on the "current situation" part of the robot's answer.
Many folks zeroed in on the odd look the robot gave.
Some found silver linings in the robot's responses in the interview.
Some even empathized with the robot.
Will no one learn from sci-fi?
A couple commenters wondered.
This was just another step into some kind of robot future, but some people were happy to be old enough to get out of it.
Finally, a person said they have their fill of talking to machines already, thanks.
For a further question, another AI assisted robot insisted it would not take human's jobs, with replies of nervous laughter from reporters in the room.
