  • That’s the vision of Andrew Ng, a founder of the Google Brain deep learning project, and former head of AI at Baidu–a position he left in March–who is today announcing a set of five interconnected online courses on the subject.
  • “Today, if you want to learn deep learning, there are lots of people searching online, reading [dozens of] research papers, reading blog posts, and watching YouTube videos,” Ng tells Fast Company.
  • As Ng sees it, getting to an AI-powered economy is going to take the work of much more than any one, or even several companies.
  • “I hope we can build an AI-powered future that provides everyone affordable healthcare, accessible education, inexpensive and convenient transportation, and a chance for meaningful work for every man and woman,” Ng says in his announcement, which is the first from his newly created company, deeplearning.ai.
  • Ng is aware that many people are still confused by AI, often getting bogged down in the different subspecialties, and lingo that can easily be misused.

The founder of Google Brain and former head of Baidu’s AI efforts wants to train a giant new workforce to help make “AI the new electricity.”

What Everyone is not Telling You about Artificial Intelligence

What Everyone is Not Telling You about #ArtificialIntelligence 
 #AI

  • CC photo by all must have heard of X-Prize, founded by Peter Diamandis, who has a similar take:Today, a group of 20 individuals empowered by the exponential growing technologies of AI and robotics and computers and networks and eventually nanotechnology can do what only nation states could have done before.That’s one heck of a pro side.
  • But wait, even before we get started on what’s missing in the whole picture, let me show you counter arguments too.CC photo by TED.comNick Bostrom, a popular philosopher with a killer TED Talk says:The first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make, provided that the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control.CC photo by @elonmusk | TwitterMoreover, the poster boy of moonshots, Elon Musk too has some extreme thoughts:With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon.Quite radical, right?
  • People have started echoing their voices on Ethics of AI, and ways to tame the demon that we are creating.We are missing out on billions of voices, which want to be heard.In between all the hoopla, no one is even remotely considering the role of 3.4 billion population online, let alone 7.2 billion worldwide.
  • Artificial Intelligence, by all meanings, is something so exponential and game changing that it is considered the last invention humankind will need, and humanity as a whole not even taking part in it!To be frank no one knows what will happen tomorrow, let alone 10 years from now.
  • If code, complex algorithms, mathematics and tuning an ML model is something that has kept the masses away, then we are here with our shovels, to help build the future, where everyone can participate in unison.Let’s make sure, that the future is not defined by just a bunch of AI nerds (and we don’t mind being called one) but by the collective integrity of 7.2 billion individuals.Let’s join hands.Tell us your thoughts on Twitter or get our latest learnings by email.

“Artificial Intelligence”: this term has become so popular/hyped/*add an adjective of your choice* in this decade, that we’re talking about it more than ever. So much so that anything about AI…

10 Super Scary Developments In Artificial Intelligence – Viral FreQ

  • That is, unfortunately, a very real fear these days, as mankind is making more and more advances in the science and technology behind AI components and robotics.
  • All it takes is for one robot to grow p*ssed off before they decide to form an uprising against humanity.
  • Lying and cheating is actually a normal human behavior.
  • But robots are only just learning to do this all on their own.
  • Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed a series of robots capable of cheating and deception towards others.

Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and even Elon Musk are considered some of the most brilliant men on the planet, but they are all absolutely terrified of artificial intelligence taking over the world one day. That is, unfortunately, a very real fear these days, as mankind is making more and more advances in the science and technology behind AI components and robotics. All it takes is for one robot to grow p*ssed off before they decide to form an uprising against humanity. We should all be terrified of that happening. Here are ten truly scary developments in AI.

AI Acquires Spatial Reasoning Abilities, in a Victory for Our Machine Overlords

#AI: AI Acquires Spatial Reasoning Abilities, in Another Victory for Our M... #Innovation

  • In a pathbreaking paper published last week, DeepMind revealed fresh inroads towards the creation of an artificial general intelligence that uses spatial reasoning – what might be likened to the holy grail of computer science and the source of interminable angst for Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk.
  • The focus of the DeepMind paper concerns spatial reasoning, in particular the ability to grasp the relation of objects to each other.
  • The first thing to understand when attempting to parse this latest breakthrough from DeepMind is the difference between narrow artificial intelligence and AGI (Artificial General Intelligence).
  • While this is no doubt an important part of human intelligence, allowing us to master games like chess and for a doctor to read an x-ray and diagnose a bone fracture, among many other things, it’s by no means the whole story.
  • It turns out pattern matching is just one algorithm within a large tool chest of algorithms that make up general intelligence.

Dubai is introducing robotic policemen, to make up 25% of the force by 2030

Robotic policemen will make up 25% of Dubai's police force by 2030  #AI

  • On Wednesday, May 24, Dubai will launch a new police robot that marks the first phase of the integration of robots into the police force.
  • This modified version of the REEM robot (Designed by PAL robotics and unveiled in 2011) is capable of feeding video to a command center, forwarding reported crimes to police, settling fines, facial recognition, and speaking nine languages.
  • Dubai hopes robots will constitute 25 percent of its police force by 2030, with the next stage being to use them as receptionists in police stations.
  • Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, General Director of Dubai Police’s Smart Services Department, told CNN that they eventually want to release a “fully-functional robot that can work as [a] normal police officer.”
  • In February, China started using the AnBot that uses facial recognition to identify criminals and is capable of following them until the police arrive.
