It seems that, seemingly the distant future has already come. A Russian robot named Alantim is ready to stand up for the protection of English fans at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Moscow. He even recorded for the guests from England his own video message.
In the video the artificial intelligence tells that on the vast expanses of the World Wide Web, he was confronted with information that the British are afraid to go to Russia at the 2018 World Cup. This information caused resentment in Alantim.
«I am very disappointed that the fans can refuse the World Cup! I decided: I will stand up for the protection and show my native city from the best side», Alantim said.
He has the possibility of maintaining a meaningful dialogue and logic. In addition, the robot is able to read the emotions of people. In case of fixation of aggression to the fans, he promised to immediately call the police. In the list of its advantages is the ability to reduce conflicts to a minimum.
Alantim is an unusual robot. Today he holds the post of deputy head of the robotics department of the Moscow Institute of Technology (MTI). He also does not forget about communicating with students, giving them lectures.
«I am fluent in English, so we will get along with fans from Great Britain!» Alantim stressed.
It should be reminded, in February this year, the film of BBC TV channel about Russian fans was released. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation this «creation» of the media corporation was dubbed deliberately staged. The official representative of the foreign ministry even ironically noted that the whole film was waiting for the appearance of Mr. Bean, who would have made clear about the unreality of what is happening. The tape warmed up already strong fears of English fans.
