Facebook Building Major Artificial Intelligence System To Understand Who We Are

Facebook Building Major Artificial Intelligence System To Understand Who We Are | Human and Technology | Scoop.it
Facebook is developing deep learning software to understand what its users say and do online

-

Meaningful artificial intelligence has been the aim of computer science since Alan Turing first imagined, in the 1950s, a computer that “passed” as human. Hollywood movies began shortly thereafter to depict computers with human-like intelligence. But, like so many things, artificial intelligence has been much harder to achieve in reality than in the movies.

But following research breakthroughs about five years ago, leading tech companies, including Microsoft, IBM and Google, have begun investing big money in artificial intelligence applications.

KatRas's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:28 AM

"TRUST BUT VERIFY"
This is good article to prove my statement in the abstract for zine.
Pros and cons of the science and technology. It is not about praising or slamming, it is about equal and objective discussion and informative text.

But success can breed complacency. Modern scientists are doing too much trusting and not enough verifying—to the detriment of the whole of science, and of humanity.

 

One reason is the competitiveness of science. In the 1950s, when modern academic research took shape after its successes in the second world war, it was still a rarefied pastime. The entire club of scientists numbered a few hundred thousand.

Careerism also encourages exaggeration and the cherry-picking of results. In order to safeguard their exclusivity, the leading journals impose high rejection rates: in excess of 90% of submitted manuscripts. The most striking findings have the greatest chance of making it onto the page. Little wonder that one in three researchers knows of a colleague who has pepped up a paper by, say, excluding inconvenient data from results “based on a gut feeling”.

Marian Locksley's curator insight, December 1, 2013 6:44 AM

Mountains of water are rolling towards us, covered in an army of huge breaking waves. Winds hitting 75mph are blowing the surface of the ocean away, and whatever is left is white with foam. The ship is facing directly into the wind, riding over the top of it all, juddering and bumping as it clings to the place where the sea touches the sky.


On the bridge, the chief scientist is grinning as though all his Christmases have come at once. After four years of planning, this has turned out better than we dared hope. All that violence outside means that the ocean is doing something important – taking a really, really deep breath. And we are here to study it.
