AI isn’t just learning to play video games, it’s helping us build them

AI isn't just learning to play video games, it's helping us build them

  • The creators of Unity, the most popular game engine in the world, recently launched a set of machine-learning tools that lay the groundwork for actual AI (not scripted computer opponents) in video games.
  • Typically these kits include rendering aids and simple tools for training neural networks, but the beta release sent to developers promises to revolutionize video games, and provides machine-learning researchers with a perfect environment for training robot brains.
  • Unity provides developers with the tools to create machine-learning agents capable of learning and interacting with each other in a virtual world, which makes it possible to create games inhabited by AI that actually learns, instead of forcing developers into painstakingly scripting behavior by hand.
  • Video game developers have been using the term “artificial intelligence” (AI) since the 1950s to describe a computer opponent designed to challenge humans.
  • This use of the term has no relation to machine-learning; the AI in a video game doesn’t learn anything, it simply executes algorithms.

Unity developers recently got an AI upgrade in the form of machine-learning tools that provide game and AI programmers with next generation capabilities.

The Artificial Intelligence Race: The AI Documentary

The Artificial Intelligence Race: The AI Documentary

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science and a set of computational technologies that are inspired by—but typically operate quite differently from—the ways people use their nervous systems and bodies to sense, learn, reason, and take action.
  • While the rate of progress in AI has been patchy and unpredictable, there have been significant advances since the field’s inception sixty years ago…

    Toby Walsh, Professor Artificial Intelligence, University of NSW Sydney “There’s lots of AI already in our lives.

  • You can already see it on your smartphone every time you use Siri, every time you ask a lexer a question, every time you actually use your satellite navigation.
  • You are using some AI that’s recognizing your speech, answering questions, giving you search results recommending books for you to buy on Amazon.
  • They’re the beginnings of AI everywhere in our lives.”

When robots will start taking over human tasks

When robots will start outperforming humans @sai #AI

  • According to a new study from Oxford and Yale University researchers, those are the years artificial intelligence is slated to take over each of those tasks.
  • And so it will go for millions of other jobs over the next 50 years, researchers find.
  • The study relied on survey responses of 352 AI researchers who gave their opinions on when in the future machines would replace humans for various tasks.
  • Lead investigator Katja Grace and her colleagues found the tasks most likely to get automated within the next 10 years were rote, mechanical tasks.
  • Ultimately, the researchers found AI could automate all human tasks by the year 2051 and all human jobs by 2136.

A survey of AI researchers tallied predictions for when machines will start beating humans at everything from LEGO assembly to essay-writing.

Scientists Aim to stop AI from Taking over the World -  #ArtificialIntelligence #AI

  • Scientist Are Making Rules to Abjure AI from Taking over the World

    With AI technology advancing progressively at a flashing pace, a group of United Kingdom scientist are calling for more transparency, and accountably in Artificial Intelligence prior to it becoming too late.

  • One of the suggestions that was placed by the researchers is the idea of having a set of guidelines that address robotics, artificial intelligence, and decision-making algorithms as a group.
  • Additionally, the researchers also recognize that adding in more transparency into Artificial Intelligence systems can adversely affect the AI’s performance.
  • This is not the first time these researchers have castigated current artificial intelligence rules.
  • In January of this year, in response to   the General Data Protection Regulation that was constructed by The European Union, the researchers called for an artificial intelligence watch dog.

11 Deep Learning Articles, Tutorials and Resources

  • According to Wikipedia, deep learning (deep structured learning, hierarchical learning or deep machine learning) is a branch of machine learning based on a set of algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using multiple processing layers, with complex structures or otherwise, composed of multiple non-linear transformations.
  • Deep learning is sometimes defined as the intersection between machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Many articles on deep learning can be found here.
