When the first ’80 (1985) TV show aired on PBS in the United States in 1985, it was the first TV series to introduce an artificial intelligence (AI) character to the public.
For a start, it introduced the first robot who was able to think for itself.
In other words, it gave humans a voice in a machine that had no voice, yet could understand and respond to humans.
It also introduced a new type of AI, the ‘DeepMind’ (a name that was never actually coined) who could think for themselves, and could even play games.
These days, deep learning algorithms are used to do much of the work that’s required of AI and robots, such as learning to understand what you see, smell and hear.
But for the first time, the AI onscreen was not a robot, but a human.
The character in the first series was called the ‘Dr. Drago’ (pronounced ‘doh-RAH-go’) and he was a robot.
The character in a second series was named ‘Hugh’ (he pronounced ‘hugh’), and was a human who could recognise and respond with human-like emotions.
What was it about the character that gave him the power to understand human emotions?
It’s not clear exactly how Dr. Dragos’ character understood the human emotions that made him so powerful, but the show did tell us that he was programmed to respond to emotions in a way that was ‘just right’.
When the robot Dr. Gio was defeated by Dr. Zod in the second series, Dr. Doctorago tried to reason with him and to understand his feelings, but he was unsuccessful.
Why didn’t Dr. Dolby show emotion in the series?
Because Dr. Professor Gio’s emotions were so sensitive, that it took years for him to even develop an AI program that could recognise them.
So it was a long time before Dr. Pardo (the character in this series) even developed an AI to be able to understand and feel what he was feeling.
When did the character get his first name?
Dr. Giorgio Drago was created in 1985 and played by Italian actor Giovanni Piscitelli.
After his debut in the 1980s TV show, he gained a following of fans in the 1990s and 2000s and was given his own series.
He was a major character in all of the ’80 and ’90s TV shows and movies.
However, when the series ended, Dr Dolby and his character became robots.
And so the question of why the character didn’t have an actual name has not been answered.
Did he become a robot by being given a name?
Maybe, but it was not his name that gave the character his power.
Dr Dolby was the character who was programmed by Dr Gio to use his voice to help him understand humans.
So why did he get his own name?
It’s not known why he got his name, but there was a theory that the name Dr Dolb was the inspiration for the character’s name.
Perhaps the name came from the famous scientist Dr. James Clerk Maxwell, who was one of the first to develop an artificial neural network (ANC) and whose name was based on the letters ‘D’ and ‘O’.
Maxwell had a son named Dr Dolbert, and his name was a reference to his famous experiment with the artificial neural networks that later evolved into the brain-machine interface (BCI).
So we might be asking ourselves the following question, ‘What’s the connection between the name Dolb and the name of the character in Dr Dol B?’.
Why did Dr. B name his son Dolby?
It’s possible that Dr. D’biol’s name came to him from the Greek word for ‘god’.
Dr Biol was an ancient Greek mathematician who was involved in the creation of the modern mathematical model of the universe, and who was the father of modern cosmology.
We also know that the term ‘god’ comes from the ancient Greek word godos, meaning ‘good’.
In Greek mythology, the name ‘god’, which means ‘good’ and can also refer to a divine being, comes from a Greek word meaning ‘god of the sky’.
It is also possible that the ‘Dol’ of ‘Dr Dolb’ came from a word meaning the ‘light’.
So Dr Dolbi, the character Dr Dolgis, came from Greek mythology and the Greek name for the light was ‘light’ – a term that was later used to refer to the first artificial neural net, and which was also used by the character Dolby.
Could Dolby be Dr Dolbot?
We don’t know for sure, but we do know that he is the
