Transparency and Trust in the Cognitive Era

IBM establishes guiding principles for the #CognitiveEra. Read them here:  #AI

  • The IBM company will work to help students, workers and citizens acquire the skills and knowledge to engage safely, securely and effectively in a relationship with cognitive systems, and to perform the new kinds of work and jobs that will emerge in a cognitive economy.”
  • Having Ginni post those principles will help the overall understanding about the New Era.
  • I wholeheartedly agree that this new technology will require much learning ahead, and IBM is wise to recognize that this is needed for the future and present generations in order for them to embrace it without fear.
  • Many new technologies have triggered a fear of the unknown, and a large body of science fiction has exacerbated some views.
  • New technologies generates some initial concerns.

Artificial Intelligence can end civilisation: Stephen Hawking

Artificial Intelligence can end civilisation: Stephen Hawking (by @PrasunSonwalkar)

  • It follows that computers can, in theory, emulate human intelligence – and exceed it.”
  • Hawking said: “Success in creating AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilisation.
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) has the power to eradicate poverty and disease or hasten the end of human civilisation as we know it, celebrated scientist Stephen Hawking told an audience in Cambridge on Wednesday evening.
  • Hawking said: “Intelligence is central to what it means to be human.
  • Everything that our civilisation has achieved is a product of human intelligence, from learning to master fire, to learning to grow food, to understanding the cosmos.

Human Brain vs Machine Learning

Human Brain vs #MachineLearning - A Lost Battle?  #abdsc #AI

  • You need to be a member of Data Science Central to add comments!
  • Add to the soup a pinch of “Internet Of Things”, put in the ever-growing spread of mobile always-on always-connected devices in our (and our children’s) lives and you may find the human race trapped on a tiny rocky planet run by sentient algorithms created by sentient algorithms derived from an algorithm based on an algorithm written by the last human researchers, right before they went obsolete.
  • We are limited by hardware and by the size of the training set.
  • It pays well to have the best algorithm, and it pays well to make a stronger computer, and it pays well to make progress.

Human (or any other animal for that matter) brain computational power is limited by two basic evolution requirements : survival and procreation. Our hardware…

Brian Eno: What Do You Think About Machines That Think? #artificial #intelligence

  • Copyright � 2016 By Edge Foundation, Inc All Rights Reserved.
  • We’ve been living happily with artificial intelligence for thousands of years.
  • It was built with the intelligence of thousands of generations of human minds, and they’re still working at it now.
  • I won’t understand how the oil that drives my central heating got from a distant oilfield to my house.
  • I’ll switch on The World Service to hear the news, and then make a few phone calls about damp-proofing.
