Artificial intelligence (AI) robots will lead to either a disaster of biblical proportions -- "human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together" as Dr. Venkman said in the original
Ghostbusters movie -- or a utopian paradise.
Artificial intelligence is already part of our daily lives with applications and services such as Siri, Alexa and connected cars. But the advance of robot intelligence is either the next best thing since the invention of the CATable or an inevitable appointment with a Terminator of the future. (For the latter, Sofia, which is billed as the world's most advanced A.I. humanoid robot, once declared she would destroy humans.) On the creepy and gross front, there is already a growing market for "android love dolls."
All of which, in a roundabout way, brings us to this Telco Transformation caption contest.

Registered users can enter as many times as they would like prior to the contest ending at midnight ET on August 15.
Who knows, the AI therapist might come in handy when "sextech" robots dump their owners.
10/16/2017 Huawei Network Transformation SeminarThe adoption of virtualization technology and cloud architectures by telecom network operators is now well underway but there is still a long way to go before the transition to an era of Network Functions Cloudification (NFC) is complete.
In this Telco Transformation radio show, IHS Markit's Michael Howard will talk about the network domains that carriers are targeting for SDN, the top SDN services that are driving revenues and the deployment barriers this year. Howard will also address whether carriers are embracing open source or using vendor-specific implementations.
MEF is working to define, deliver, and certify dynamic communications services that are orchestrated across a global ecosystem of automated, virtualized and interconnected networks. In this radio show, MEF CTO Pascal Menezes talks about the challenges and the solutions that his organization is working on and provides a preview of the MEF17 conference in November.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is a key component of services providers' virtualization game plans and AT&T and Level 3 Communications have been at the forefront of its adoption.
In this webinar, Andrew Dugan, CTO of Level 3 Communications, and Amy Wheelus, Vice President of Cloud and D2 Platform Integration at AT&T, will discuss how their companies have leveraged SDN within their networks, services and applications. Some of the key areas that will be covered include:
Automation, APIs and lifecycle service orchestration
The continued evolution of SDN-based solutions and SDN in networks, including SD-WAN, dynamic cloud connections and scalable Ethernet and security solutions.
