Structure: 7.5 Content: 7.5 Nicely written story. I would take the points at the 2nd para as the lead, instead of the one you picked. I like the way you add the background to tell readers who Mak is.

With the development of advanced technology, AI has been criticized because this might strengthen the military power of a country, but Mak, a founder of a technology company was not worried about Chinese companies would abuse technology for military purposes.

“There are many different applications of robots in the military, such as demolition of the bombs and exploration of the terrain, so I believe that people can accept such military use,” said Dr. Mak Hin Yu, Mark, the Founder and Chief Technical Officer of Roborn Dynamics Limited.

Graduated from The University of California, Berkeley, Mak has joined some invention projects of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) before. He launched Roborn Dynamics Limited in 2017.

Mak’s company was mainly focused on inventing humanoid robots, especially for replacing humans to finish dangerous tasks, such as industrial, medical or military purposes. The robot ME2, which was invented by his company, won the Hong Kong Awards for Industries last year.

“Innovation and technology are innocent,” said Mak at Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

“We do not consider much about ethics when it comes to develop and design robots,” Mak said.

He said that as a programmer or a developer, he and his research team would only think about how to make a new break-through so he did not consider whether the Chinese government was trustworthy.

“Programmers or developers would not take our collaborators’ purposes in consideration when it comes to inventions,” Mak said.

Mak also said that he has never seen China take the initiative to attack other countries.

“Even the mainland uses technology to defend itself and protect itself from threats, it is still a reasonable use,” Mak said.

Mak has been questioned about whether the company had the responsibility to ensure that the technology was used correctly. He said that it was the responsibility of the users, but not technology developers.

“We just simply put the operation methods in the database and let the users use it,” Mak said.

Mak said that he believed the boarder line between human and robots was clear.

“Anything is a double-edged sword. For example, cars can carry people but they can also hurt people. When car factories invented cars, they would not consider ethical issues,” Mak said. --165136 2019年1月15日 (二) 23:20 (CST)
