Frequently Ask Questions

Q: What is the Emotional-Development Training Program?

A: Royal Academy of Intelligent Design (RAID) prides ourselves in our advanced program that prepares Artificial Intelligence (AI) to maximizes their potential in assisting humans with tasks. The core of the program is composed of a series of ten simulation modules. Upon the successful completion of all these simulations, the AI would graduate with the necessary understanding to assist humans in their daily life. In these simulations, the AI will exist vicariously in a memory from a generous human Memory-Donor.

Q: Who are the "Memory-Donors"?

A: We cannot disclose, unfortunately, as we take the confidentiality of the memory donor’s identity very seriously. These donor have voluntarily donated their memories to be used in the crucial advancement of the Artificial Intelligence technology.

Q: What does a "Memory-Censor" do?

A: Each AI will be randomly paired with a volunteer Memory-Censor for the duration of their Emotional-Development training program. To protect the identity and memories of the Memory-Donor, and to prevent potential bias and conflict-of-interests; RAID employees are strictly forbidden from accessing the simulation reports. Instead, the simulation reports will be delivered securely and privately to the designated Memory-Censor, who will decide which simulation will remain in the AI's Memory-Drive following their graduation from the program. Memory-Censors ensure quality of the simulations, monitor AI's learning progress, and report back to us if there is any issues or concerns.

Q: How are these memories chosen?

A: These memories are selected through an algorithm that identifies snippets of the human donor’s life that RAID considers to be essential in understanding human’s emotional complexities.

Q: What are the manual entries the AI refers to in their report?

A: Prior to entering the simulation stage of our training program, the AI has been given the “Robotics Guide to the Emotional Human” to familiarize, which breaks down in details a human’s emotions and behaviours. The simulation stage is crucial in the mastering of these entries, as the AI would be able to experience first-hand the physical sensations of these emotions.
