How close are we to Westworld? @roboweek #NationalRoboticsWeek #RoboWeek

Of course this isn’t the first Westworld, but the HBO series Westworld has renewed interest in artificial intelligence and how close we could be to making it a reality. Inverse looks into the uniqueness of the series and what makes it stand out.

Stephan Bugaj, Hanson’s Vice President of Creative, is in charge of personality design.

He says that two systems play a big role inside Dolores Abernathy’s synthetic skull. Both are in their infancy in the real world, but in tandem they could make Hanson robots a lot more relatable. The first is what’s called generative, or self-modifying code, and the second is memory.
