Google set to bring AI to Raspberry Pi computers

  • Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, told the BBC: “It’s fantastic to see Google getting closer to the maker community.”
  • Google has set up its very own survey and is asking makers what smart tools would be the “most helpful”.
  • Google set to bring AI to Raspberry Pi computers
  • Google is on its way to bringing artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to computer Raspberry Pi.
  • “I’m particularly excited about the prospect of connecting Raspberry Pi to some of the machine learning work coming out of Google DeepMind in London, allowing us to build smart devices that interact in the real world.”

Take a look at this interesting tech…

Vatican weighs in on power, limits of artificial intelligence :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

Vatican weighs in on power, limits of artificial intelligence  #ai

  • In terms of how this technology might transform the way we live, LeCun said that within the next few years or even decades, “there will be transformative applications” of artificial intelligence visible and accessible to everyone.
  • Artificial intelligence “is a very powerful technology,” he said, explaining that while he believes technologies in and of themselves are neutral, “it depends on what you end up using that technology for.
  • Artificial intelligence “would be a crucial key technology to facilitate communication between people,” he said, since the company’s main focus “is connecting people and we think that artificial intelligence has a big role to play there.”
  • As far as the discussion on artificial intelligence is concerned, Arber said it’s important to understand current developments, which include increasing dialogue as to whether research done on natural sciences can then be applied to the field of machinery and robotics.
  • A new conference at the Vatican drew experts in various fields of science and technology for a two-day dialogue on the “Power and Limits of Artificial Intelligence,” hosted by the Pontifical Academy for Sciences.

This week the Vatican hosted a high-level discussion in the world of science, gathering experts to discuss the progress, benefits and limits of advances in artificial intelligence.

The momentous advance in artificial intelligence demands a new set of ethics

The momentous advance in artificial intelligence demands a new set of ethics  #AI

  • Unpredictability indicates a loss of human control.
  • So as we drink to the passing of a milestone in AI, let’s also drink to the understanding that the time to answer deeply human questions about deep learning and AI is now.
  • For example, actions with high levels of unpredictablility – talking, driving, serving as a soldier – which were previously unmanageable for AI are now considered technically solvable, thanks in large part to deep learning.
  • Because of deep learning, AI is surprising us with the speed of its own advancement.
  • With scientists amazed at how fast AI is developing, it’s vital that humans stay in control
