Experts Predict When Artificial Intelligence Will Exceed Human Performance

  • They surveyed the world’s leading researchers in artificial intelligence by asking them when they think intelligent machines will better humans in a wide range of tasks.
  • And many of the answers are something of a experts that Grace and co coopted were academics and industry experts who gave papers at the International Conference on Machine Learning in July 2015 and the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in December 2015.
  • These are two of the most important events for experts in artificial intelligence, so it’s a good bet that many of the world’s experts were on this list.Grace and co asked them all—1,634 of them—to fill in a survey about when artificial intelligence would be better and cheaper than humans at a variety of tasks.
  • Grave and co then calculated their median responsesThe experts predict that AI will outperform humans in the next 10 years in tasks such as translating languages (by 2024), writing high school essays (by 2026), and driving trucks (by 2027).
  • It’s easy to think that this gives the lie to these predictions.The experts go on to predict a 50 percent chance that AI will be better than humans at more or less everything in about 45 years.That’s the kind of prediction that needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Trucking will be computerized long before surgery, computer scientists say.

Google Is Making AI That Can Make More AI

Google Is Making #AI That Can Make More AI

  • What’s more, using AIs to build more AIs may also increase the speed at which new AIs can be made.
  • Once you’ve trained an AI to accomplish a certain goal, you can’t necessarily crack it open and see how it is doing it.
  • The downside is that AI building more AIs sure seems like it’s inviting a runaway cascade and, eventually, Skynet.
  • Google Is Making AI That Can Make More AI
  • The lab is reportedly building AI software that can build more AI software , with the goal of making future AI cheaper and easier.

There’s no way this could go wrong.
