Artificial consciousness: IBM supercomputer used to simulate a typical human brain

Artificial consciousness:                            IBM supercomputer used to simulate a typical human brain | Future of A.I | Scoop.it
IBM researchers have used the world's most powerful supercomputer to simulate a virtual brain comparable in complexity to that of a human.

Swahn Frayé's insight:

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

Garry Schulz's curator insight, December 18, 2012 8:11 AM

The very notion of computers that simulate the human brain seems like pure science fiction.  The reality however is that progress across disciplines such as neuroscience, artificial intelligence (particularly neural networks) and neural computer chip design is both accelerating and converging.  As a result the likelihood of this type of technology emerging in the next 10 to 20 years is much greater than most people appreciate.  


It's also important to understand that the quest to build this technology isn't a fringe play.  It is being pursued by some of the brightest minds on the planet, at some of our most prestigious universities and by some of our largest, most accomplished and most well-resourced corporations (e.g. IBM).  


Some observations:


  • If IBM and others are successful in this pursuit, it will radically transform a number of industries built on a deep seated belief that only humans can perform the key value adding activities in the industry
  • Even if IBM and others are only partially successful, the technology will still have a massive impact on a range of industries 
  • While it might take 20 years for IBM and others to reach their ultimate goal, you can expect them to make progress along the way and for the early impacts of that progress to be felt long before the final goal is achieved.
  • History shows that industry incumbents tend to either be dismissive of or completely miss trends with momentum such as this until it's too late
Nick Jernstedt's curator insight, December 15, 5:23 PM

A study has been researched about using the worlds strongest super computer to stimulate a model of a human brain and it super hardwired it and made it work faster than a regular brain.

Future of A.I
This topic tries to give a vision of A.I in five to ten years based on current reseach and discoveries.

Peter Molyneux demos Milo, the virtual boy | Video on TED.com

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.

Swahn Frayé's insight:

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.

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
Mick Hawkins's curator insight, March 22, 2013 12:47 AM

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?

Jeff Hawkins: How brain science will change computing | Video on TED.com

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

IBM Watson | Future of A.I | Scoop.it
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.
Swahn Frayé's insight:

Although this is published by IBM itself, Watson is considered to be the smartest computer today.Here IBM is promoting it's possible uses in healthcare by suppressing human errors in diagnostics. Specialists say that by 2020 such a powerful computer could be reduced to the size of a smartphone(source:http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9237343/IBM_Watson_will_eventually_fit_on_a_smartphone_diagnose_illness).

 

And we can imagine that by then even more powerful computers will be created to improve A.I and extend it's real life Applications
