Peter Molyneux demos Milo, a hotly anticipated video game for Microsoft's Kinect controller. Perceptive and impressionable like a real 11-year-old, the virtual boy watches, listens and learns -- recognizing and responding to you.
Swahn Frayé's insight:
Here is an other interesting use of AI: in video games, although Peter Molyneux admits it is mainly tricking us to believe it is A.I, his virtual boy Milo does seem very realistic.
This opens up the idea of possible ultra-realistic video games in the future.
Dr Jun Jo gives here a very interesting vision of the future were our way of transportation has radically changed and is controlled by A.I. His ambitious project seems to be ahead of Google's version of an autonomous car, by linking it with the rising technology of smartphones his technology could be cheaper and more accessible.
I suggest viewing as a plus to this article this interesting video made by Vsauce about consciousness. Indeed inspiring ourselves of the human brain to create Artificial Intelligence rises up the question : Will A.I become aware of itself and so reach consciousness? or maybe it will be limited to a "philosophical zombie" as described in the video Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qjfaoe847qQ
New Leap In Artificial Intelligence May Finally Allow Robots To 'Learn' iTechPost A new iCub robot that may soon actually learn new languages is a stunning development in the field of artificial intelligence — it is an especially dramatic leap...
Treo creator Jeff Hawkins urges us to take a new look at the brain -- to see it not as a fast processor, but as a memory system that stores and plays back experiences to help us predict, intelligently, what will happen next.
Swahn Frayé's insight:
Jeff Hawkins main topic here is creating a framework/theory of how the brain works. such an accomplishment would allow new ways of creating artificial intelligence. He predicts that a brain theory and so human like Artificial Intelligence will arise in near future by qualifying intelligence by prediction and not behavior.
IBM Watson is ushering in a new era of computing. Get ready to rethink how you use data, build knowledge, and make decisions. Cognitive systems like Watson may transform how organizations think, act, and operate in the future.
Voice recognition has had a outstanding trend in the last few years and is already quite mind-blowing as IBM's Watson demonstrates; beating humans at popular tv game "Jeopardy" . It it safe to say that Voice recognition will be a source of many useful and incredible developments in the incoming years
