Her (2013)

Her (2013) | The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Directed by Spike Jonze. With Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara. A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system that's designed to meet his every need.
Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

The film 'Her' directed by Spike Jonze touches on the possibilities of interaction between humans and artificially intelligent operating systems.The protagonist finds himself in a romantic relationship with his operating system and must cope with the problems this causes. 'Her' is a useful source for discussing the future of artificial intelligence as it raises some interesting possibilities. However, it is not a source which can be backed up with evidence, nor is it written by an individual with an extensive background knowledge of AI technology. Because of this it is only a useful tool for discussion and not as something which can be used as evidence of future uses of AI technology.

Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

This article by Aki Ito of the Journal Gazette outlines the impending redundancy of many jobs caused by artificially intelligent computers. Including quotes from researchers from Oxford University, Ito gives information regarding a research initiative which found which professions were liable to be taken over by computers in the future. As this article includes quotes from researchers of artificial technology it is useful as a source to give insight as to the future of AI. It can be trusted as it only contains a small amount of information which all comes from reliable sources.

I, Robot

I, Robot | The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
The three laws of Robotics:1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm2) A robot must obey orders givein to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov's trademark.From the Hardcover edition.
Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

Within Isaac Asimov's collection of seven short stories, an idea of the future of robotic technology is founded. Asimov built important foundations for the robotics industry, and the three laws of robotics outlined in this novel are still important. Because this is a fictional novel, it is not a source which could be used extensively. However, Asimov was a professor of biochemistry, and extensively well learned in robotics, so it is still useful as a source outlining the ideas of an individual who had an interesting insight into the future of robotics and artificial intelligence.

DeepFace: Facebook Uses Artificial Intelligence To Boost Performance Of Facial ...
Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

In this article, the use of DeepFace is mentioned. This technology is used to recognise faces within Facebook in order to tag those within a picture. As this is AI software, the information within this article is highly relevant.  As this site contains information purely about Facebook, it could be bias in that information may be skewed towards the favour of Facebook - making some statistics false. Despite this, it is a useful source in determining the future of AI technology.

Would You Do as a Robot Commands? An Obedience Study for Human-Robot Interaction | HCI Lab | University of Manitoba

Would You Do as a Robot Commands? An Obedience Study for Human-Robot Interaction | HCI Lab | University of Manitoba | The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Welcome to the U of M HCI Lab located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Contact us at (204) 474-8995 or hcilab@cs.umanitoba.ca
Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

This publication outlines a study undertaken by the HCI Lab of the University of Manitoba. Participants were asked to undertake a task overseen by either a robot, or a human. They were told that they could quit at any time, but encouraged by their overseer to continue. It was found that 47% of participants were willing to continue beyond the time they wished to quit when told to continue by a robot. This study is useful to the topic of 'The Future of Artificial Intelligence' as it gives an insight into the possibility of intelligent robots taking over, not only low level jobs, but supervisory jobs as well. Because the study was undertaken by a University, this information is highly useful and would be a relevant citation within the essay.

Isaac Deboer's curator insight, March 28, 2014 8:39 AM

the HCI Lab of the University of Manitoba created a test to see if humans would obey a robot over a human. the experiment involved a long and boring task and was set by ether a human or a robot, when the human gave the task the less people refused the task when the human asked over the robot.  This experiment is useful to my topic as it shows robots and humans both showing a leadership role and seeing which one got better results .

Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

Within this article Dr. Arthur Franz speculates on the evolution of artificial intelligence technologies. Franz delves into the topics of reproduction, unpredictability, and consequences - covering a wide range of interesting futures for the technology. As Franz is a physicist and AI researcher for the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, the ideas within this article can be believed to be reputable. However, Franz does not include many sources within his article, making it mostly ideas which may include factual errors and bias. Despite this, Franz is a respected researcher within the industry and as such is a useful source for the essay.

Artificial intelligence is the next big tech trend. Here’s why. | The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Boasting new momentum, it's ready to move out of academia and into the real world. (RT @GarryMathiason: Artificial intelligence is the next big tech trend. Here’s why.
Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

Dominic Basulto from the Washington Post outlines the emerging trend of researching into artificial intelligence within the tech world. The article includes sources regarding various deals which have been made by large companies regarding AI technology, as well as quotes from individuals involved in this industry. However, the overall topic can still be thought of as opinion, as not enough sources are given to truly back up its claim. Because of this, this source is only useful as a starting point from which to take other sources from.

Rhiannon Douglas's insight:

This article from George Dvorksy from io9.com speaks of a competition seeking teams who can create an AI intelligent enough to give a TED Talk that would receive a standing ovation. As io9 is simply a website which gives small articles about a range of topics, this source is not recommended as a main citation. However, it does delve into an interesting future for AI technology, and so could be useful as an example of where artificially intelligent technology may lead. Because of this, it is useful for the approaching essay.

GEORGE DVORSKY has written this article to put the idea out that a robot may present a TED talk from a random topic. TED has pointed out that the robot will need to be able to answer questions about the topic that will be provided to it. This article is important to my topic for  it shows that this innovation to create a mechanic robot to do something only humans should be able to do.
