10 Super Scary Developments In Artificial Intelligence – Viral FreQ

  • That is, unfortunately, a very real fear these days, as mankind is making more and more advances in the science and technology behind AI components and robotics.
  • All it takes is for one robot to grow p*ssed off before they decide to form an uprising against humanity.
  • Lying and cheating is actually a normal human behavior.
  • But robots are only just learning to do this all on their own.
  • Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed a series of robots capable of cheating and deception towards others.

Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and even Elon Musk are considered some of the most brilliant men on the planet, but they are all absolutely terrified of artificial intelligence taking over the world one day. That is, unfortunately, a very real fear these days, as mankind is making more and more advances in the science and technology behind AI components and robotics. All it takes is for one robot to grow p*ssed off before they decide to form an uprising against humanity. We should all be terrified of that happening. Here are ten truly scary developments in AI.

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.

    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.

Dyson is quietly working artificial intelligence into all of its home gadgets

Dyson is quietly working artificial intelligence into all of its home gadgets

  • SINGAPORE — In the brave new world of smart homes, Dyson thinks it’s got a way to get a leg up over the competition: artificial intelligence.
  • “Almost every product can benefit from AI, lighting, purification, cleaning — everything that you see in a room needs artificial intelligence,” declared Sir James Dyson, its founder said at its launch event.
  • Sir James Dyson, speaking at the Singapore launch.Dyson’s already started dipping its toes in the connected home scene.
  • My dream is much rather that everything is automatic, and sets itself for you to your preference,” Dyson said.
  • Testing has already begun for Dyson’s new home lighting and fan systems, using face and voice recognition to detect the user, then adjusting its temperature and speed to their precise preferences.

Imagine never having to input a setting again.
