Would you work for a robot?
Well, we all knew this day would come. Dictador, a Polish rum company, made headlines by appointing Mika, a humanoid robot, as its CEO.
Developed through a collaboration between Hanson Robotics and Dictador, Mika embodies the company’s values with advanced AI and machine learning capabilities.
However, there is a noticeable delay in Mika’s response time, as noted by FOX Business reporter Lauren Simonetti. David Hanson, CEO of Hanson Robotics, stressed the importance of humanizing AI for safety and effectiveness.
Mika, always operational, works tirelessly, making data-driven decisions and contributing to various tasks such as identifying potential clients and selecting artists for bottle designs. It operates 24/7 but won’t be responsible for major decisions, which remain in human hands.
Mika’s role extends to overseeing the Arthouse Spirits project, involving NFTs, and engaging with the DAO community. Mika is a more advanced version of Sophia, another AI robot created by Hanson Robotics. While Dictador’s decision to appoint a robot CEO is innovative, it follows a precedent set by a Chinese gaming firm appointing an AI-powered virtual humanoid as a subsidiary CEO.
