When Artificial Intelligence Meets Actual Life

When artificial intelligence meets actual life

  • We called this “The Great Tech War of 2012” in a cover story that set the framework for how a new wave of business activity would unfold.
  • As senior writer Harry McCracken reports in what we’re calling “The Great AI War of 2018,” the investment in and motivation behind AI is setting in motion yet another wave of change—one that spans all industries and again features Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google (now Alphabet).
  • With AI poised to affect not only businesses but also the everyday lives of people around the world, the intersection between tech and culture has never been more intense or more significant.
  • When the world’s premier basketball player is looking to learn from a 6-year-old YouTuber (“Kevin Durant’s Killer Crossover“) and a high-profile fashion designer is more excited about synthetic biology than style trends (“Stella McCartney Weaves a New Way Forward“), we can’t ignore that something different is going on.
  • In the Great Tech War of 2012, it was easier to be optimistic about it all; as complex as things were, it seems the world was a simpler place.

As powerful as tech alone may be, it is culture that will ultimately define our future.

New Smart Robots In The Neighbourhood — GadgTecs

New Smart Robots in The Neighborhood!  #Science #ArtificialIntelligence #ai

  • These are ‘Voltron‘ like smart robots that have the ability to choose their own leader.
  • The idea behind this invention is taken from the famous American animated television series – Voltron: Defender of the Universe, where five lion-shaped robots link up to form a giant robot that fights against evil.
  • A team of scientists has come up with robots that work together and choose their own leader.
  • However, the team of scientists, led by Marco Dorigo, head of a robotic lab in Brussels, built robots that can link up together, react to their surroundings, and can pass on authority to another member in the group.
  • The leader can decide to add new robots to the group and link it with everyone.

These are ‘Voltron’ like smart robots that have the ability to swarm togather and choose their own leader. Doesn’t that sound new and interesting?

    MACAO, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) — Macao and Alibaba Cloud will work together to upgrade the special administrative region (SAR) into a smart city by applying cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI), according to an agreement signed on Friday by Macao SAR government and Alibaba Cloud.

  • Macao SAR Chief Executive Office Director O Lam and President of Alibaba Cloud Hu Xiaoming signed the Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement to Build Smart City at a ceremony presided by SAR Chief Executive Chui Sai On and the board of directors of Alibaba Group Jack Ma.
  • O Lam told a press conference that the SAR government seriously considered the plan to build Macao as smart city with Alibaba and it was a strategic decision for economy development and people’s welfare.

🤖 This is a genuine conversation with a #robot. #Ai

  • Ben meets one of the most humanlike robots in the world, Erica.
  • Professor Danielle George MBE, an electronics engineer from Manchester University and a robot supporter, and Dr Ben Garrod, an evolutionary biologist from Anglia Ruskin University and robo-sceptic, uncover whether the rise of the robots will enhance the progress of humanity or ultimately threaten the survival of the human race.
  • Ben is unashamedly unnerved by the tremendous rate that robots are evolving, whilst Danielle is welcoming them with open arms.
  • To make sense of Ben’s fears and Danielle’s optimism, they set out to investigate the evolution of robots – treating them as if they are an emerging ‘species’.
  • Ben meets one of the most humanlike robots in the world – the disarmingly charming Erica – who might be warm to the touch, but whose sense of humour falls decidedly flat.

The Startup Rushing to Usher in the Self-Driving Era Even Faster

The #Startup Rushing to Usher in the #SelfDriving Era Even Faster  @driveai_ #Cars #AI

  • Drive.ai never set out to build the best self-driving car.
  • Instead of striking early deals with car manufacturers to see who can roll out the most robust working product—though Drive.ai says it has some secret deals in place already—the company has focused on creating the best possible, fully autonomous self-driving AI “brain” in the world.
  • The company’s test vehicles have shown promising results driving in cloudy and rainy conditions that continue to stump other self-driving cars, bringing the world that much closer to the true prize in self-driving tech: the ability to eliminate the human altogether.
  • For now, drivers are expected to maintain awareness at all times, ready to take control of mostly self-driving cars if conditions make the automated system screw up.
  • And by lowering the price tag on self-driving from the cost of a new futuristic vehicle to that of a retrofit kit that can hook up with your old Toyota Tercel, Drive.ai could create a mass market overnight.

Using a simple kit users can make their cars self-driving if Drive.Ai is able to make these work for all car models on the road.
