How Robots Will Quickly Replace You at Your Job

Here's what artificial intelligence experts think robots will do in the next 200 years

  • The study polled AI experts on when they thought robots and programs would be able to perform to a handful of jobs and tasks better than humans.
  • For instance, robots will likely be able to fold laundry better than humans between the next two and fourteen years, with the median response being six years.
  • So, sometime in the next fourteen years (though likely well before that), you’ll probably start seeing robots at your nearest laundromat.
  • According to the same polled audience, robots will take over all human jobs sometime in the next 200+ years, with the median response being around 120+ years from now.
  • You should definitely take a look at all the ways your job could automated in the next decade-plus.

Years from now, robots will replace every human in every job function. Here’s how long that will take to accomplish.

Researchers Have Created an AI That Is Naturally Curious

Researchers Have Created an #AI That Is Naturally Curious 

 #fintech @futurism

  • Researchers have successfully given AI a curiosity implant, which motivated it to explore a virtual environment.
  • This could be the bridge between AI and real world application

    Researchers at the University of California (UC), Berkeley, have produced an artificial intelligence (AI) that is naturally curious.

  • While the AI that was not equipped with the curiosity ‘upgrade’ banged into walls repeatedly, the curious AI explored its environment in order to learn more.
  • This is a useful and effective strategy for teaching AI to complete specific tasks — as shown by the AI who beat the AlphaGo world number one — but less useful when you want a machine to be autonomous and operate outside of direct commands.
  • This is crucial step to integrating AI into the real world and having it solve real world problems because, as Agrawal says, “rewards in the real world are very sparse.”

Researchers have successfully given AI a curiosity implant, which motivated it to explore a virtual environment.

Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross

Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross | @IFLScience  #AI

  • It features an episode of the stoner-favorite television show The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross through Google’s neural network DeepDream.
  • DeepDream is a convolutional neural network, a style of computing inspired by the brain, that identifies and recognizes images and patterns.
  • As Reben explains in the description: “This artwork represents what it would be like for an AI to watch Bob Ross on LSD (once someone invents digital drugs).
  • The unique characteristics of the human voice are learned and generated as well as hallucinations of a system trying to find images which are not there.”
  • Google made the code for DeepDream open-source, meaning there are plenty of videos, images, and apps that utilize it.

Ever wondered what it would be like for artificial intelligence to trip-out while watching Bob Ross paint a pretty picture?

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.
