59 impressive things artificial intelligence can do today

59 impressive things artificial intelligence can do today —via @Medium

  • That’s the year in which artificial intelligence will be able to perform any intellectual task a human can perform, according to one survey of experts at a recent AI conference.
  • How close are we to that all-powerful machine intelligence?
  • I wanted to know, but couldn’t find a list of AI’s achievements to date.
  • It’s not comprehensive, but it contains links to some of the most impressive feats of machine intelligence around.
  • Here’s what AI can do:

Intelligent systems: man or machine?

[#HallOfFame 2016] #AI #ethics: Man or Machine? 
  [via @graphcoreai]

  • We need to think of machines that exhibit intelligence as independent entities, and we should think carefully about what that might actually mean.
  • Because thinking about machine intelligence in this way opens up thoughts about new business models, about liability sharing, about machine intelligence insurance and many other issues.
  • But in a world of machine intelligence, we need to take a different view.
  • It may be appropriate for a person or company that buys an intelligent system to own it and to be fully responsible for it.
  • – A (very) large data set of related information that the machine can learn from;

Why ‘Bots vs. Humans’ Is the Wrong Way to Think About It

Why 'Bots vs. Humans' Is the Wrong Way to Think About It  #AI #chatbot #customersuccess

  • And as intelligent machines become more ubiquitous at home and in the workplace, it’s got some people wondering …
  • If the machine can dupe the judges into thinking it’s a human, it’s said to have passed the Turing test.
  • Once machines achieve a certain level of intelligence, they try to take over.
  • We want everyone to know that our bot is a bot.
  • Final thought: Let bots be bots

Chatbots are poised to revolutionize sales and customer success. Here’s why you should be happy, not worried.

The True Father of Artificial Intelligence

The real father of #ArtificialIntelligence -  (Partner content via @bbvaOpenMind)

  • The computer scientist rejected most of the applications of artificial intelligence currently developed, which are directed solely at machines that imitate behaviour, but donâ t learn .
  • Despite his efforts, this system did not help McCarthy to achieve his true objective: that a computer would pass the Turing test , according to which a human asks questions through a computer screen, and if he cannot decide whether itâ s another human or a machine that is responding, this is definitively intelligent.
  • In the following years, McCarthy dedicated himself to sowing artificial intelligence laboratories in the best universities, a job that continues to give results today.
  • The future father of artificial intelligence tried to study while also working as a carpenter, fisherman and inventor (he devised a hydraulic orange-squeezer, among other things) to help his family.
  • McCarthy is enshrined as the father of artificial intelligence not only for managing to open the field and turn it into a new area of research, but also for continuing to provide evidence for its development for half a century.

Do you still think that the father of Artificial Intelligence was Alan Turing? You definitelly need to know this name: John McCarthy

Introducing JetPack 2.3, Comprehensive SDK for AI and Deep Learning

Introducing NVIDIA JetPack 2.3 for #deeplearning on embedded systems:  #JetsonTX1

  • Our latest software suite of developer tools and libraries for the Jetson TX1 takes the world’s highest performance platform for deep learning on embedded systems and makes it twice as fast and efficient.
  • It offers double the performance for deep learning over previous implementations of cuDNN.
  • The camera API gives developers lower level access to connect camera sensors over MIPI CSI.
  • New APIs for half-precision floating point computation in CUDA kernels and cuBLAS and cuFFT libraries have also been added.
  • The JetPack 2.3 all-in-one package bundles and installs all system software, tools, optimized libraries and APIs, along with providing examples so developers can quickly get up and running with their innovative designs.

NVIDIA JetPack 2.3, available for free download today, makes it easy to add complex AI and deep learning abilities to intelligent machines.
