Artificial Intelligence Engineers Create Child-Like “Roboy” to Service Humans

Artificial Intelligence Engineers Create Child-Like “Roboy” to Service Humans | Annotated Bibliography Topic: Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it

The Artificial Intelligence Lab (AIL) at the University of Zurich is the home to a 1.2m tall robot namedRoboy. He is modeled after the anatomy of a 2 – 3 year old child and uses artificial “tendons” to move about. Researchers hope to have Roboy operational by 2013 and unveiled at the Robots on Tour event in Zurich.

Bridget Walters's insight:

Assisted by scientists and engineers to creat tendon-controlled motor technology that mimics the flexiblility of fibrous collaen tissues attached to muscles and bone in thehuman body. 'Roboy', is made of "soft-tissue" technology, and is hoped that, developments such as the advancement in synthetic skin for prosthetics will be made in the next 5-10 years. This type of AI system's developments in the near future could could asist with such things as:

• Delivering meals
• Cleaning floors
• Mowing lawns
• Acting as companion robots

The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Artificial Intelligence | Annotated Bibliography Topic: Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Robots are here to stay. They will be smarter, more versatile, more autonomous, and more like us in many ways. We humans will need to adapt to keep up.
Bridget Walters's insight:

Brief description of when 'Robots' was first used in context. In the book the Robots were artificial humans. It is believed, that at present and in the near future Robots will be made largel by mechanical and electrical inorganic material. In this text, it is also believed that development in the area of Robotic AI systems will have 'Robotic Intelligence'. Robotic Intelligence consist of the ability of a robot to solve problems, to learn, to interact with humans and other robots, and related skills are all measures of intelligence.

Bridget Walters's insight:

Source discuss the idea of a person chat minister AI system. This type of AI system would try to chact back to a human, whilst replicating a human persona and consciencousness from internet conversations. The AI called, Val 300, is already being used, will improve even more than today. Conversations  after a few weeks of development were improving. It would be best if it is easily  accessed by web as well as mobile phones. The only improvement that seems to be developed is if in the future a way to automatically translate her chat into different languages but not at this time is this implemented

Scientists See Advances in Deep Learning, a Part of Artificial Intelligence

Scientists See Advances in Deep Learning, a Part of Artificial Intelligence | Annotated Bibliography Topic: Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it

Using an artificial intelligence technique inspired by theories about how the brain recognizes patterns, technology companies are reporting startling gains in fields as diverse as computer vision, speech recognition and the identification of promising new molecules for designing drugs.

 

The advances have led to widespread enthusiasm among researchers who design software to perform human activities like seeing, listening and thinking. They offer the promise of machines that converse with humans and perform tasks like driving cars and working in factories, raising the specter of automated robots that could replace human workers.

 

The technology, called deep learning, has already been put to use in services like Apple’s Siri virtual personal assistant, which is based on Nuance Communications’ speech recognition service, and in Google’s Street View, which uses machine vision to identify specific addresses.

Nicholas Smith's curator insight, March 22, 2013 6:45 AM

This article talks about advances made in deep learning, a part of artificial intelligence. This is quite an interesting article as deep learning is the technology which Apple's Siri uses and Google's Street View uses.

 

The interesting concept of deep learning is 'recognition', for example Apple's Siri voice recognition. It is absolutely extraordinary to think that an AI is able to recognize somebody when they speak and react to that person's command or question. Even with such amazing breakthroughs like Siri, in ten to fifteen years, we are most likely going to see more voice recognition programs in GPS's, phones and many more devices.

 

Deep learning is an extremely interesting and complex system. This source provides a decent insight into deep learning and artificial intelligent and was extremely helpful with my research topic.

Miro Svetlik's curator insight, April 15, 2013 5:27 AM

Deep learning is one of the subjects I need to dig deeper in.

Bridget Walters's insight:

A threat that could change the course of humanity. Just like the movie 'I Robot', what would happen if machines could be able to develp over time by themselves? Increasing their intelligence, could they over power the human population? Could they naturally evolve? Cambridge University, one's oldest and popular universities, has conducted research to study the pitfulls posed by artificial intelligence. Events such as the ones in 'I Robot" are a while away, yet that doesn't look like that will every happen in the next 100 years or so.

General Artificial Intelligence and the Global Brain: Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

General Artificial Intelligence and the Global Brain: Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies | Annotated Bibliography Topic: Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it

At first glance, the emergence of a Global Brain and the engineering of advanced Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) systems might seem to be two orthogonal approaches to the origination of intelligence beyond the human level. But closer inspection reveals great synergetic potential. An AGI or community thereof, studying content and activity on the Internet, could serve as the “central conscious theater” of a distributed global brain, allowing a global brain with a more unified and explicitly goal-directed form of cognition.

 

This would also benefit the AGI, allowing it to increase its own intelligence via leveraging its interactions with the content, software and humans on the Net. Existing proto-AGI architectures such as OpenCog (http://opencog.org) may have potential for use in this sort of way.

 

Eventually such an AGI could serve as a sort of “global AI nanny”, helping society to monitor its own behavior with global safety in mind (although, the caveats as well as the benefits of this sort of application are clear).” - GlobalBrainInstitute

New Leap In Artificial Intelligence May Finally Allow Robots To 'Learn'

New Leap In Artificial Intelligence May Finally Allow Robots To 'Learn' | Annotated Bibliography Topic: Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Developers working on 'teaching' an iCub robot how to learn new languages may have unlocked a new door to huge advances in artificial intelligence.

Via Robert Mosley
Bridget Walters's insight:

Imagine, being able to be taught a language, with precision and consistency. Devlopers are working of 'teaching' a small AI system which is refered to as simply 'iCub' how to learn new languages. In turn opening the door to huge advances in artificial intelligence. The iCub at present is able to anaylise and understand phrases. Sentences, include syntax/grammar structure, as well. In the future, robots like the iCub, will have the ability to link together two different sentences and complete the phrase before spoken. Now, imagine if that could be reversed. Humans would be able to learn multiple languages all from a simply AI system which would be the size of a toy doll.

Queensland Minning (Australia), today,are trying to achieve ‘artificial intelligence’ in the minning industry Where by Artificial Intelligence – a system where the intelligence of machines is such that traits like reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication and perception provide equipment with the ability to move and manipulate objects to improve commercial outcomes would be used to boost the industry in productivity and efficiency. As the Australian mining exports increase, minning companies are investing significant resources into the development and implementation of remote automation and unmannes machinery to meet this demand and make mining in Queensland and eventually the world less dangerous and more safe. By developing unmanned machinery, lifes of hundereds of men and women could be saved and less human error could be avoided.
