Stephen Hawking Finally Revealed His Plan for Preventing an AI Apocalypse

Stephen Hawking Finally Revealed His Plan for Preventing an #AI Apocalypse  via @Futurism

  • Hawking has expressed his opinions about topics that range from extraterrestrial life to artificial intelligence (AI), and of the latter, he has serious misgivings.
  • But like many other scientists and thinkers in today’s world, Hawking is concerned that the rise of AI is bringing with it various negative side effects.
  • He’s also worried that AI may take over the world or, worse yet, end it.
  • Our best bet against this AI uprising, he now tells The Times, is the creation of “some form of world government” that could control the technology.
  • Those institutions, such as the Partnership on AI and the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund (or AI Fund), have begun developing guidelines or frameworks for developing AI more conscientiously.

This would prevent tech from destroying humanity.

AI + Cognitive IoT + Blockchain = Intelligent Connected Products [Video]

#AI + #Cognitive #IoT + #Blockchain = Intelligent Connected Products [Video]

  • The IoT Zone is brought to you in partnership with GE Digital .
  • It might sound like a mishmash of buzzwords, but as technology evolves, look to merging blockchain, AI, and the Internet of Things to add intelligence to products.
  • I covered a variety of topics, including deep learning, computer vision at the edge for security/surveillance, and cognitive IoT – all with a heaping helping of blockchain-as-a-service for added compliance and security.
  • Discover how IoT developers are using Predix to disrupt traditional industrial development models .
  • I’m putting up my technical talk from IoTNext, where I talked about applying intelligence at the edge gateway and the cloud.

Slack is watching how you work

Slack is watching how you work

  • The lieutenant governor is sitting down with Kara Swisher at the Code Enterprise conference.
  • “What we’re starting to build is what we’re internally calling our work graph,” Noah Weiss, Slack’s head of search and intelligence, said at the Code Enterprise conference in San Francisco on Tuesday.
  • The idea may be a little creepy, but Weiss believes Slack can eliminate a lot of the wasted time that people spend trying to locate information or prioritize their time.
  • “Most knowledge work is a game of telephone,” Weiss said.
  • The service will already make channel recommendations to some users, and Weiss says it’s starting to test message rankings, too, so that people know who to respond to first when they’re in a time pinch.

The company wants to use AI to simplify your work conversations.

Machine Learning Unconference

Like AI? Come to the @OpenAI machine learning unconference  < grants available!

  • Software engineers using machine learning in applications or building machine learning infrastructure.
  • Please join us for our first Machine Learning Unconference, an experimental gathering driven by its participants rather than an organizing committee.
  • OpenAI is sponsoring and hosting the event, but the event itself has no official organization – it’s just people who find this invitation interesting, meeting to discuss machine learning.
  • We’d like to try instead hosting an event focused on the most valuable part of any conference: the people.
  • We’re particularly excited to support women, minorities, and members of other groups underrepresented in machine learning.

@jackclarkSF: “Like AI? Come to the @OpenAI machine learning unconference < grants available!”


Machine learning is moving incredibly quickly. To keep up, many
practioners spend several weeks a year at conferences. However,
conference presentations are all on work submitted months prior,
meaning that people are already intimately familiar with the content
(and it’s often already been surpassed).
