The Evolution of Artificial Intelligence

The Evolution of Artificial Intelligence 

#AI @Internetmeds

  • The third one was in 1969 when the word information technology was introduced in the world, and the fourth one is the revolution of Artificial Intelligence which we are experiencing right now.
  • Artificial Intelligence is the set of tools and programs that make any software smart enough that the observer would feel that he is dealing with a human, not with the software.
  • Artificial Narrow Intelligence: The first stage of AI as the name suggests is functionally very narrow.
  • Artificial General Intelligence: AGI may only be one step further from ANI but this step is the biggest achievement of humanity.
  • Artificial Super Intelligence: ASI is the final stage of AI predicted by the scientist in which the machines with ASI can able to pass the average human intelligence.

This world has seen four major revolutions that changed its entire face. The first revolution was in 1784 when the first steam engine introduced in the world. The second one was in 1870when the electricity was invented. The third one was in 1969 when the word information technology was introduced in the world, and the fourth one is the revolution of Artificial Intelligence which we are experiencing right now. The present revolutionary era is based on the extreme automation and global connectivity for which Artificial Intelligence is imperative. Just like the other three revolutions, the changes and developments that this revolution is creating will be the bedrock of our future and our way of interacting with technology and with each other.

How artificial intelligence could design your next car

  • Artificial intelligence is set to take a key role in the design and engineering of new cars, dreaming up lighter, stronger and more complex structures than humans can envision.
  • Hack Rod, a team of designers, engineers, geeks, Hollywood insiders and stunt drivers is working on a way to harness the power of artificial intelligence in tandem with powerful design software produced by Autodesk.
  • Mike Geyer, Autodesk’s director of evangelism and emerging technology, says the generative design software uses cloud computing systems to create the best geometric shapes for any given project.
  • The next Hack Rod will more closely follow the computer’s ideal design by using 3D printing to realise Dreamcatcher’s vision for a lightweight sports car chassis.
  • Geyer says the team will then cloak it in carbon-fibre bodywork impregnated with electronic sensors that collect complex data surrounding the vehicle’s performance, which will then be fed back into the computer’s design process.

Meet the sports car imagined by computers.

The Science of AI and the Art of Social Responsibility

The @HuffingtonPost take a look at the science of #AI and the art of social responsibility:

  • But the transformational nature of artificial intelligence requires new metrics of success for our profession.
  • This year alone at least 1 billion people will be touched in some way by artificial intelligence, which is transforming everything from financial services to transportation, energy, education and retail.
  • And why IBM is a founding member of the Partnership on AI, a collaboration among Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple and many scientific and nonprofit organizations charged with guiding the development of artificial intelligence to the benefit of society.
  • Opportunity: Developers of AI applications should accept the responsibility of enabling students, workers and citizens to take advantage of every opportunity in the new economy powered by cognitive systems.
  • They should help them acquire the skills and knowledge to engage safely, securely and effectively in a relationship with cognitive systems, and to perform the new kinds of work and jobs that will emerge in a cognitive economy.

By Guru Banavar, IBM’s Chief Science Officer for Cognitive Computing
I am a computer scientist and engineer, inspired by the art of the possible an…

This cutting edge AI startup from Finland is challenging tech giants and universities alike

This cutting edge #AI startup from Finland is challenging tech giants and universities alike

  • Curious AI is a research-based company founded 2015 as a spin-off from Aalto’s Deep Learning Research Group.
  • Curious AI does cutting edge research, pushing the boundaries of the machine learning commonly called artificial intelligence today towards the illusive limit of true artificial intelligence.
  • Curious AI recently had a breakthrough, using unsupervised learning for object recognition in Google Street View.
  • he term artificial intelligence is thrown around a lot these days, but usually, when a startup says they’re applying AI to some problem, it just means they are using machine learning in varying degrees of sophistication.
  • A major obstacle to reaching artificial intelligence is solving unsupervised learning – and this is what Curious AI’s primary focus.

Curious AI is driving the development towards the next wave of advanced artificial intelligence technology.

Artificial Intelligence: The Future Of Everything

#ArtificialIntelligence : The Future Of Everything 

 #fintech #AI @Dispatch Weekly

  • Though many fear what could happen when AI is fully incorporated (mainly due to sci-fi movies that portray the AI as somehow malicious) the rise of artificial intelligence will ultimately improve many aspects of our everyday lives.
  • With the use of artificial intelligence, retailers can now focus on the manufacturing and quality of the product while the AI sorts through the data and makes it clear and concise.
  • With the increased efficiency and integration of strong artificial intelligence some jobs will inevitably be taken over by machines.
  • As quickly as artificial intelligence is advancing, there are still challenges that need to be overcome before there is a full shift towards strong AI use.
  • This data is the basis for the central concept of artificial intelligence: machine learning.

This year, 2017, has been dubbed the year artificial intelligence (AI). With developers already beginning to innovate and improve the technologies that already exist, the potential growth in the field is undeniable. The question of strong artificial intelligence is not one of “if” but one of “when” and it is only a matter of time before artificial intelligence is fully integrated into our lives.  There are two main types of artificial intelligence to keep an eye out for: strong and weak.

’Who’s in control?’ Scientists gather to discuss AI doomsday scenarios — RT News

’Who's in control?' Scientists gather to discuss AI doomsday scenarios

  • A group of scientists gathered to discuss doomsday scenarios, addressing the possibility that AI could become a serious threat.
  • “Like any new technology, artificial intelligence holds great promise to help humans shape their future, and it also holds great danger in that it could eventually lead to the rise of machines over humanity, according to some futurists.
  • Despite the somewhat unnerving content of the event, Krauss said the purpose was “not to generate fear for the future because AI can be a marvelous boon for humankind…but fortune favors the prepared mind, and looking realistically at where AI is now and where it might go is part of this…”

    He added that even situations which we may now fear as “cataclysmic” may actually “turn out to be just fine.”

  • The gathering comes just four months after acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking warned that robots could become the worst things ever to happen to humanity, stating that they could develop “powerful autonomous weapons” or new methods to “oppress the many.”
  • “Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has reached a point where the deployment of [autonomous] systems is — practically if not legally — feasible within years, not decades, and the stakes are high: autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms,” they wrote at the time.

Artificial intelligence has the capability to transform the world – but not necessarily for the better. A group of scientists gathered to discuss doomsday scenarios, addressing the possibility that AI could become a serious threat.
