Elon Musk Calls Out Mark Zuckerberg's 'Limited Understanding' of Artificial Intelligence

  • Tesla chief executive Elon Musk shot back at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday for saying people worried about artificial intelligence — the capability of machines to perform tasks usually reserved for humans — are “pretty irresponsible,” in a recent Facebook Live interview.
  • Musk has been one of the most prominent voices in tech warning of the potential dangers of unchecked artificial intelligence, saying it’s humanity’s “biggest existential threat,” and the “greatest risk we face as a talked to Mark about this.
  • — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 25, 2017

    Beyond AI coming to take everyone’s job in the next 50 years, Musk has been more concerned with the plausible threat of machines moving beyond “narrow AI” — expertise in specific fields — and learning at a more rapid rate than humans can.

  • He co-founded OpenAI in 2015, a research company aiming to build “safe AI” through a collaborative effort, rather than individual companies having an arms Rad Projects Elon Musk Has Worked On Musk has been at the forefront of Silicon Valley innovation for two decades.

China wants to be a $150 billion world leader in AI in less than 15 years

#China wants to be a $150 billion world leader in #AI in less than 15 years

  • China has laid out plans to become the world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) by 2030, with the aim of making the industry worth 1 trillion yuan ($147.7 billion).
  • The State Council released its three-step roadmap on Thursday outlining the thinking behind how it expects AI to be developed and deployed in areas from the military to city planning.
  • “Artificial intelligence has become a new engine of economic development,” the State Council’s document said according to a translation.

China’s three step program outlines its aim to use AI in a number of areas from the military to smart cities.

The AI Revolution Is Eating Software: NVIDIA Is Powering It

Find out how we're immersed in this extraordinary momentum of the #AI revolution:

  • Volta features a new numeric format and CUDA instruction that perform 4×4 matrix operations – an elemental deep learning operation – at super-high speeds

    Each Volta GPU is 120 teraflops.

  • It’s great to see the two leading teams in AI computing race while we collaborate deeply across the board – tuning TensorFlow performance, and accelerating the Google cloud with NVIDIA CUDA GPUs.
  • It provides a 5x improvement over Pascal, the current-generation NVIDIA GPU architecture, in peak teraflops, and 15x over the Maxwell architecture, launched just two years ago – well beyond what Moore’s law would have predicted.
  • Such leaps in performance have drawn innovators from every industry, with the number of startups building GPU-driven AI services growing more than 4x over the past year to 1,300.
  • To help innovators move seamlessly to cloud services such as these, at GTC we launched the NVIDIA GPU Cloud platform, which contains a registry of pre-configured and optimized stacks of every framework.

At this year’s GTC Conference, NVIDIA showed how it is delivering AI for every computing platform, every deep learning framework. Read more.

An Interview With David Kenny – The Innovator news

  • — D.K.:We are at the point in AI that we were with the Internet in 1993 and mobile around 2003.
  • So I would say, view AI as something in the fabric of your company like electricity — like data flowing through your company in fundamental ways.Is it a threat or an opportunity?
  • — D.K.: The digital and mobile disruptions largely favor distribution, so most of the real value is held by a handful of companies who have consolidated distribution.
  • To take advantage of AI we really encourage companies to maintain control of their data — their intellectual property — because the value is in using it to train the AI.Don’t feed it to (an outside) platform that will serve as a distribution chokehold.
  • Companies need to establish their data and knowledge strategy first — extending their own knowledge and not just turning it over to someone else.

David Kenny, IBM Watson’s Chief and a scheduled keynote speaker at Viva Technology recently spoke to The Innovator about what executives should do to prepare for AI. — D.K.: When you can predict…

The Truth About Impact of Artificial Intelligence on SEO In 3 Minutes

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already in use on search engines and has been so for the past few years.
  • RankBrain, which is part of Google, is an AI system that is used quite prominently in ranking websites for search engine results.
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which is still the primary means of passive marketing on the internet, has already been affected by AI in a powerful way.
  • This is because the content will match to a greater degree the user’s known interest as opposed to just keywords or key phrases.
  • However, the way search engine rankings will be affected over the foreseeable future will change regardless of how the advances in AI turn out.

Clear And Unbiased Facts About Impact Of Artificial Intelligence on Future of SEO (Without All the Hype). Happy reading.

Looking For The Unknown: Artificial Intelligence Is Seeking Cancer Patterns That Have Eluded Humans

New advancements in #AI will make diagnosis and treatments easier for cancer patients

  • Scientists are using so-called “deep learning networks,” which weave together hundreds, if not thousands, of data points and process this data with multiple algorithms simultaneously, mimicking the human brain.
  • Deep learning has the potential to do the same thing – but with even more data points and at speeds unmatched by humans.
  • Scientists working on the Brazilian problem are asking the AI to search for possible patterns that can predict who might be a successful candidate for the alternative cancer treatments[2].
  • In these instances, clinicians and data scientists work hand-in-hand, reviewing the algorithms and fine-tuning them to help the AI as it learns to call out areas that doctors need to pay special attention to when interpreting body scans.
  • As AI becomes a more common tool in healthcare, medical schools will have to change how they train physicians to make sure they have the new capabilities, skill sets and methodologies to use AI effectively, Dahlweid says.

Men in Brazil, diagnosed with colorectal cancer, usually refuse the surgical removal of the colon, one of the recommended treatments. After surgery, patients are required to have a colostomy bag for the rest of their lives. This is a real concern in the body-conscious Brazilian culture.

Toyota launches venture capital fund targeting artificial intelligence startups

Toyota launches venture capital fund targeting artificial intelligence startups -

  • Toyota is the latest Fortune 500 company to launch an AI focused venture capital fund.
  • The initial early-stage fund will deploy $100 million and operate as a subsidiary of the Toyota Research Institute.
  • The automaker has strategically positioned itself as an ROI rather than strategic-focused fund — meaning that it aims to profit like any other VC firm.
