Elon Musk Donates $10M to Keep AI From Turning Evil | WIRED

Elon Musk Donates $10M to Keep AI From Turning Evil | WIRED | Possibilities of A.I. | Scoop.it
Elon Musk is afraid that artificial intelligence research could go wrong---very wrong. On Thursday, he announced a donation of $10 million to the Future of Life Institute (FLI), which will run a global research program aimed at keeping AI “beneficial to humanity.”
Liam Hunter's insight:

This is a little funny but shows that people are, at least, starting to believe that A.I. has the potential to be a real danger to humanity and is willing to spend enormous sums of money attempting to lower the risk.

Hitchhiking Robot Treks Across Canada

Hitchhiking Robot Treks Across Canada | Possibilities of A.I. | Scoop.it
Attention all Canadians: If you spot an adorable smiling robot on the side of the road, PLEASE put it in your car and have a conversation with it. Seriously, you should do it. If not for the sake of saying you made a robot friend, then do it for science. The robot, aptly named hitchBOT, is the brainchild of David Harris Smith of McMaster University and Frauke Zeller of Ryerson University. They came up with the concept in 2013 as a way of learning more about how humans and robots could interact with one another.
Liam Hunter's insight:

This is interesting because most articles about AI warn of the potential dangers it presents, this one comes from a different point of view asking "Can robots trust humans?"

​When Superintelligent AI Arrives, Will Religions Try to Convert It?

​When Superintelligent AI Arrives, Will Religions Try to Convert It? | Possibilities of A.I. | Scoop.it
Like it or not, we are nearing the age of humans creating autonomous, self-aware super intelligences. Those intelligences will be part of our culture, and we will inevitably try to control AI and teach it our ways, for better or worse.
Liam Hunter's insight:

This has a very different and very interesting perspective on the A.I. discussion as it introduces the idea of an A.I. following a religion and being able to have faith.

IBM Reveals Incredible New Brain-Inspired Chip

IBM Reveals Incredible New Brain-Inspired Chip | Possibilities of A.I. | Scoop.it
The world of computing just got a heck of a lot more exciting thanks to IBM’s incredibly powerful brain-inspired chip which was unveiled on Thursday. While their prototype single-core system, released back in 2011 as part of the Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE) project, was impressive, this new chip blows the old one out of the water.
Liam Hunter's insight:

This is a very impressive piece of technology, that could be used to further AI.
