In a world where artificial intelligence and robotics continue to redefine the boundaries of human innovation, one extraordinary entity is making headlines. Dictador, the renowned Polish rum maker, has taken an audacious step by appointing a humanoid robot named ‘Mika’ as its Chief Executive Officer, making her the “world’s first” robot to lead a global company.
Mika’s groundbreaking journey was forged in partnership with Hanson Robotics, the visionary creators of Sophia, celebrated as the planet’s first robot citizen. Labelled as female, Mika boasts advancements that reportedly outshine her famous robotic sibling.
Officially taking the helm at Dictador as CEO and board member on September 1, 2022, Mika has been steering the rum-making ship for well over a year.
Her primary responsibility is to oversee communications with the Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) on behalf of the company, symbolising a seismic shift in the corporate hierarchy.
The appointment of Mika serves as a compelling testament to Dictador’s unyielding commitment to ushering in new technology and infusing innovation into an industry traditionally characterised by conservatism. Her presence as the head of a global corporation underscores the company’s determination to adapt to the ever-evolving technological landscape.
Yet, as with any groundbreaking role, Mika’s journey is not without its challenges. During a recent interview with Fox Business’s Lauren Simonetti, an intriguing aspect of her still-emerging capabilities came to light.
A “significant delay” in her responses was observed by the seasoned reporter, underlining the ongoing evolution of this experimental CEO.
During an appearance on the ‘Mornings with Maria’ show, David Hanson, CEO of Hanson Robotics, emphasised the paramount importance of humanising artificial intelligence. He passionately argued that this step is critical in guaranteeing the safety and effectiveness of the ever-expanding collaboration between humans and robots in the future.
The path to truly symbiotic relationships between man and machine is one that Mika’s appointment exemplifies.
Mika’s impressive list of achievements as a female CEO is poised for further expansion. Just last month, she received the prestigious title of “Honorary Professor” at Collegium Humanum in Warsaw, Poland, during the institution’s 2023/24 inauguration.
As she continues to navigate uncharted waters, Mika stands as a testament to the limitless potential of AI and robotics in shaping the world of business and innovation.
The future is female, indeed, and it’s now more artificial than ever.
