I’d like to hear his opinion on the game “I have no mouth, and I must scream.” Partially because he’s a robotics expert, partially because I want to see how this jolly man would react to it

There's huge difference between designing better mechanics of a capable robot, or creating general AI (AGI) so I'm surprised to hear somebody claim they build robots and also decide how it will think as if relating to human cognition
