Google has purchased research on neural networks - as well as the person behind the research - with the view to go beyond traditional search algorithms to identify content, images, voice, text and more.

Safety Engineering for General Artificial Intelligence

Mick Hawkins's insight:

This interesting paper discusses a topic raised in Asimov's "I Robot": if we make robots that can learn, what are the robots rights?

 

What of near-human intelligent robots that become super human?

 

Also discussed is the question of hat are the ethical limitations of Artificial Intelligence? What should they be? I personally wonder (worry) about AI being used in warfare and no doubt there's many more possibilities to be concerned about, nt the least of which is how do we ensure this new technology isn't misused?

"Cake cutting" algorithms

Mick Hawkins's insight:

In the 20th century there has been marked development in mathematical approaches to fairness. There are many real world applications for a solution to this problem. One application - discussed in this article's introduction - is the fair distribution of natural resources, including the environment's capacity to deal with their use. The use of algorithms in determining CPU sharing is another practical application, as is social welfare (and keeping society happy).

 

In this 2012 article from Carnegie Mellon University, Ariel D. Procaccia discusses 5 "classic" cake cutting algorithms citing papers from the last 5 years. Each classic algorithm is evaluated mathematically and their degree of fairness is discussed. The challenge is that so far a strategy-proof algorithm doesn't exist, if one "player" doesn't follow the algorithm.

In conclusion the article quotes: "cake cutting is not a piece of cake".

Ambient Intelligence: Sensing a Future Mobile Revolution ...

Ambient Intelligence: Sensing a Future Mobile Revolution ... | Artificial Intelligence - How it could benefit us | Scoop.it
Artificial intelligence finds its way to more aspects of human life every day. The future of technology is a sea of opportunity for artificial intelligence and application development, especially for mobile devices.

Via Scott Turner
Mick Hawkins's insight:

This article outlines some of the practical developments in AI. Recent applications of AI are explained and  future applications are predicted. The article introduced me to the term "Ambient intelligence".

 

I'm have a keen interest in how AI can be further incorporated into phones and apps, and how the technology can enhance daily lives. Artificial intelligence is being used to take 10minutes of user activity to predict what the user might need in the next 10 seconds.

Good article on AI and AML (ambient intellgence) and the improvements that can come from the AI side of things, compared with using human intellgence.

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Affect Our Lives : Discovery Channel

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Affect Our Lives : Discovery Channel | Artificial Intelligence - How it could benefit us | Scoop.it
Artificial intelligence affects our lives in so many ways. Check out our 10 ways artificial intelligence affects our lives to see how involved AI is.
Mick Hawkins's insight:

Predicting the weather? Driverless transport? Discovery has listed 10 exciting ways that AI may soon change our lives based on existing technology and what may soon be possible.

Personally, I found the introduction of chaos theory in weather prediction an exciting development - it brough liklieness into predictions That artificial intelligence may allow computers to analyse data and pattens - that people might miss - to make predictions is not only exciting but could mean that lives are saved through early warning of storms etc.

But the threat of governments misusing drone technology pales in comparison to the threat of criminals or terrorists using drones. Singularity University's own Marc Goodman has written extensively about drone technology ...
Mick Hawkins's insight:

It's true that any new technology can be abused. I hate the idea of artificial intelligence being used in terrorism or warfare. Killer robots should be confined to science fiction - in my opinion anyway.

I particularly like this article's closing comment:
"The idea isn’t to halt the march of progress but to anticipate its dark side and do our best to prevent misuse."

How Hard Is Artificial Intelligence?

Mick Hawkins's insight:

If evolution produced intelligent human life, shouldn't it be possible for intelligent humans to create human-like artificial intelligence in the near future? While this sounds reasonable, this article points states that this idea doesn't take into account just how difficult (unlikely) it is for human life to evolve.

Discussed are the requirements for the evolution of artificial intelligence and just how likely (or easy) it is... or isn't. I found this discussion interesting and thought provoking.

Semantic Web, combining the Web with artificial intelligence

Mick Hawkins's insight:

From Keio University, combining the Web with AI may mean that software can be made to understand the meaning of Web pages. The story states that while it's expected it will take 5-10 years for semantic web to become practical, Yahoo has already begun using the beginning technology in its web searches.

 

The group has already developed some software the allows the system to get the meaning of text and have released it as open source - which I think will open up the posibilities of this idea.

Some of the most useful applications of genetic algorithms in the real world.

Mick Hawkins's insight:

This is an informative introduction to some potential benefits of Artificial Intelligence. Though, I wouldn't consider "joke generation" a beneficial "real-world application" - though this may lead to something more broadly useful.

Mick Hawkins's insight:

Imagine the possibilities in robots that can learn. Most of us probably imagine them doing servant-type jobs and working for us doing all those tedious jobs we don't enjoy.

In a recent lecture the point was made that, if we make robots that learn from us and can function in society, why would they be happy doing all the menial tasks that we don't want to do?

Thanks for sharing. This is very intersting to me. I must admit that I am very impressed at how much better Google has gotten at translating since I came to Korea just four years ago. Everything uesed to be just babblefish gibbersih when I tried to used the converter. These days, it is getting awfully close to something that I can understand
