Positively shaping development of artificial intelligence

Positively shaping development of artificial intelligence

  • This wasn’t the first such event – the agricultural revolution had upended human lives 12,000 years earlier.
  • A growing number of experts believe that a third revolution will occur during the 21st century, through the invention of machines with intelligence which far surpasses our own.
  • Rapid progress in machine learning has raised the prospect that algorithms will one day be able to do most or all of the mental tasks currently performed by humans.
  • This could ultimately lead to machines that are much better at these tasks than humans.

The Evolution of Artificial Intelligence

The Evolution of Artificial Intelligence 

#AI @Internetmeds

  • The third one was in 1969 when the word information technology was introduced in the world, and the fourth one is the revolution of Artificial Intelligence which we are experiencing right now.
  • Artificial Intelligence is the set of tools and programs that make any software smart enough that the observer would feel that he is dealing with a human, not with the software.
  • Artificial Narrow Intelligence: The first stage of AI as the name suggests is functionally very narrow.
  • Artificial General Intelligence: AGI may only be one step further from ANI but this step is the biggest achievement of humanity.
  • Artificial Super Intelligence: ASI is the final stage of AI predicted by the scientist in which the machines with ASI can able to pass the average human intelligence.

This world has seen four major revolutions that changed its entire face. The first revolution was in 1784 when the first steam engine introduced in the world. The second one was in 1870when the electricity was invented. The third one was in 1969 when the word information technology was introduced in the world, and the fourth one is the revolution of Artificial Intelligence which we are experiencing right now. The present revolutionary era is based on the extreme automation and global connectivity for which Artificial Intelligence is imperative. Just like the other three revolutions, the changes and developments that this revolution is creating will be the bedrock of our future and our way of interacting with technology and with each other.

Thinking Machines: 7 of the Best Books on Artificial Intelligence

Thinking Machines: 7 of the Best Books on Artificial Intelligence

  • & &

    Decades ago, if you were writing about robots, it was probably in one of two forms: either a science fiction narrative, or something short about the handful of robots that could be purchased for home or recreational use.

  • Home devices can recognize and respond to speech, prosthetic technology has been dramatically advanced, and our very understanding of what constitutes a robot has significantly changed.
  • With these advances in technology have come other questions, some pertaining to the nature of intelligence, some relating to the lines between humanity and machines, and still more that use our research into robotics to explore what makes us human.
  • So, with that in mind, here’s a look at a handful of the best books on artificial intelligence, dealing with questions of robots, body modification, the Singularity, and more.
  • Crank up Flight of the Conchords’s song set after a robot uprising and dig in.

The Search for a New Test of Artificial Intelligence

The search for a new test of artificial intelligence  🔒

  • The Search for a New Test of Artificial IntelligenceResearchers need new ways to distinguish artificial intelligence from the natural kind In 1950 Alan Turing devised a thought experiment that has since been revered as the ultimate test of machine intelligence.
  • He called it the “imitation game,” but most people know it as the Turing test.
  • Anticipating what we now call chat bots—computer programs that masquerade as humans—Turing envisioned a contest in which a machine tries to trick an interrogator into believing it is human, answering questions about poetry and deliberately making mistakes about arithmetic.
  • Today, in the eyes of the general public, the Turing test is often seen as a kind of a Rubicon, a measure of whether machines have truly arrived.
  • Make a selection below to access this issue.

    Britain is betting that the rise of the machines will boost the economy as the country exits the European Union.As part of its strategy to champion specific industries, the U.K. government said in a statement on Sunday that it would invest 17.3 million pounds ($21.6 million) in university research on robotics and artificial intelligence.

  • The government cited an estimate from consultancy Accenture that AI could add 654 billion pounds to the U.K. economy by 2035.
  • “We are already pioneers in today’s artificial intelligence revolution and the digital strategy will build on our strengths to make sure U.K.-based scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs continue to be at the forefront,” Culture Secretary Karen Bradley said in the statement, which referenced AI’s contribution to smartphone voice and touch recognition technologies.
  • The U.K.’s digital strategy proposal, set to be unveiled on Wednesday, also includes a review of AI to determine how the government and industry can provide further support.
  • “Investment in robotics and artificial intelligence will help make our economy more competitive, build on our world-leading reputation in these cutting-edge sectors and help us create new products, develop more innovative services and establish better ways of doing business,” Business Secretary Greg Clark said in the statement.
