Google’s AI Guru Says That Great Artificial Intelligence Must Build on Neuroscience

Google’s #AI guru says that great artificial intelligence must build on neuro science

  • Demis Hassabis knows a thing or two about artificial intelligence: he founded the London-based AI startup DeepMind, which was purchased by Google for $650 million back in 2014.
  • In a paper published today in the journal Neuron, Hassabis and three coauthors argue that only by better understanding human intelligence can we hope to push the boundaries of what artificial intellects can achieve.
  • But it also points out that more recent advances haven’t leaned on biology as effectively, and that a general intelligence will need more human-like characteristics—such as an intuitive understanding of the real world and more efficient ways of learning.
  • As Hassabis explains in an interview with the Verge, artificial intelligence and neuroscience have become “two very, very large fields that are steeped in their own traditions,” which makes it “quite difficult to be expert in even one of those fields, let alone expert enough in both that you can translate and find connections between them.”

Inquisitiveness and imagination will be hard to create any other way.

Why football, not chess, is the true final frontier for robotic artificial intelligence

#Future #Tech: why #football, not chess, is the true final frontier for #robotic #AI ►

  • In recent years, their ability has significantly improved: many labs now boast five or six-a-side humanoid robot teams .
  • So while the robots may seem less capable this year than the year before, it’s because the goalposts are moving.
  • The tasks involved in playing football, although much more intuitive to humans than chess or Go, are a major challenge for robots.
  • The RoboCup tournament held its 20th competition in Leipzig this year .
  • Led by Hiroaki Kitano and Manuela Veloso , the ambitious goal set that year was to have by 2050 a team of humanoid robots able to play a game of football against the world champion team according to FIFA rules, and win.

Computers must master football if they are to demonstrate that they can be our equal.

  • It is not in the cerebral boardgames of chess or Go, but on the pitch in the physical game of football that the frontline of life with intelligent robots is being carved out.
