Stephen Hawking is concerned that artificial intelligence could replace humans. The world-renowned physicist fears that somebody will create AI that will keep improving itself until it’s eventually superior to people. He says the result of this will be a “new form” of life.

Facebook Training AI Bots to Negotiate with Humans – News Center

See how Facebook used #GPUs + #AI to train bots to negotiate and compromise with humans.

  • In a new blog post, Facebook explains how existing chatbots can hold short conversations and perform simple tasks such as booking a restaurant – but building machines that can hold meaningful conversations with people is challenging because it requires a bot to combine its understanding of the conversation with its knowledge of the world, and then produce a new sentence that helps it achieve its goals.
  • To help build their training set, the team created an interface with multi-issue bargaining scenarios and crowdsourced humans on Amazon Mechanical Turk to negotiate in natural language to divide a random set of objects.
  • The models were trained end-to-end from the language and decisions that humans made, meaning that the approach can easily be adapted to other tasks.
  • Reinforcement learning was then used to reward the model when it achieved a good outcome which prevents the AI bot from developing its own language.
  • In their experiments, majority of the people didn’t know they were talking to a bot and FAIR’s best reinforcement learning negotiation agent matched the performance of human negotiators – achieving better deals about as often as worse deals.

Researchers at Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) published a paper introducing AI-based dialog agents that can negotiate and compromise.

Stephen Hawking Finally Revealed His Plan for Preventing an AI Apocalypse

Stephen Hawking Finally Revealed His Plan for Preventing an #AI Apocalypse  via @Futurism

  • Hawking has expressed his opinions about topics that range from extraterrestrial life to artificial intelligence (AI), and of the latter, he has serious misgivings.
  • But like many other scientists and thinkers in today’s world, Hawking is concerned that the rise of AI is bringing with it various negative side effects.
  • He’s also worried that AI may take over the world or, worse yet, end it.
  • Our best bet against this AI uprising, he now tells The Times, is the creation of “some form of world government” that could control the technology.
  • Those institutions, such as the Partnership on AI and the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund (or AI Fund), have begun developing guidelines or frameworks for developing AI more conscientiously.

This would prevent tech from destroying humanity.

  • The machine will make the decisions, according to a set of principles laid out by Dalio about the company vision.
  • Another app, dubbed The Contract, gets staff to set goals they want to achieve and then tracks how effectively they follow through.
  • The company is already highly data-driven, with meetings recorded and staff asked to grade each other throughout the day using a ratings system called “dots”.
  • Posted by Zoltan Istvan in categories: finance , robotics/AI , transhumanism
  • A lot of management is basically information work, the sort of thing that software can get very good at.”
