Meet Mika, the CEO of Polish drinks company Dictador, who happens to be an AI-powered humanoid robot. Since her appointment in August 2022, Mika has been working tirelessly, 24/7, without weekends off. In a recent interview with Reuters, Mika stated that she is always on, ready to make executive decisions and leverage AI to work her magic.
As Dictador’s experimental chief executive, Mika’s responsibilities are diverse. She aids in identifying potential clients and plays a role in selecting artists to design the rum producer’s bottles. Her decision-making process relies heavily on data analysis and aligning with the company’s strategic objectives, leaving no room for personal bias and ensuring unbiased and strategic choices that prioritize the organization’s best interests.
While Mika takes on numerous tasks, it is important to note that the major significant decisions at Dictador will be made by human executives, according to Marek Szoldrowski, the European president of Dictador.
One key project Mika leads is the Arthouse Spirits decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) project, which involves a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and communication with the DAO community. Mika, developed by Hanson Robotics, is touted as a more advanced version of her sister prototype, AI robot Sophia, who has gained global attention through media interviews.
Dictador follows in the footsteps of a Chinese gaming firm, which appointed an “AI-powered virtual humanoid robot” named Tang Yu as the chief executive of one of its subsidiaries in the previous year.
Mika’s work ethic and dedication are undeniable. While she may still have more to prove in the realm of AI-powered leadership, her presence as an experimental CEO highlights the increasing integration of technology and artificial intelligence in the corporate world. As the company continues to push boundaries, Mika remains a symbol of innovation and progress.
