This article explains NASA's plans for a futer mining operations on mars, moons or asteroids, the pictuer of the robot called the razor, is only the first of the prototypes that NASA has made to acheive its goals. If succesful it could theoretically be used to help in the process fo minerals for fuel.

Artificial Intelligence has been created enabling other Artificial Intelligence (such as robots) to communicate wireless through a cloud network. They are even able to access other information (on the internet for example) to use to "communicate" with the other Artificial Intelligence.
Rachel May's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:54 AM

1. Artificial Intelligence / 2. Cloud Computing

 

A 'standardised knowledge base for robots' has already been developed, allowing robots to share information through cloud computing. This alleviates any issues of individual robots needing to 'learn' as any 'lessons' are accessible through the cloud. This also results in a decreased need for internal memory which means the physical robot would require less power etc.

This raises questions for me about these 'lessons' and the human that is 'teaching' this robot. Who says that the way I want my shirt folded is the way my neighbour wants theirs folded? Obviously this is a very small scale, but when you think about the intentions of potential teachers, does this open up a wide range of different network security or personal security issues? Is there a third party approving new 'lessons', and how would this be managed?

This highlights how 3D printing is going to do amazing things on all size levels. A spaceship was 3D printed the size of a human hair. Alot of nano technologies will be able to be made using 3D printing.

The article brings up an interesting perspective of the reality and inevitability of the rise of robots, in the not to distant future, who will live amongst us and be our lifelong companions. Many believe that robotics is the forefront of the evolution of technology, opening up many more business opportunities and becoming available for use in many real-world applications.

 

The relevance of this article is appropriate as it underlines the beneficial importance of the robotics sector and its immense contribution to the development and conservation of our economy in the years to come.

Nicholas Smith's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:29 PM

This is a particularly interesting article which tells readers that artificial intelligence may be more of a threat to humanity than disasters, such an asteroids, global warming and even nuclear war. This theory should definitely be taken into consideration as we are already making huge advancements in artificial intelligence and in the near future, robots will most likely be smarter than humans.

 

The aim of this article is to put forward the idea that robots could do more harm to us than help us. Robots could also be a threat in the sense that they may be misused and used for harm and not for good, more so. This article is extremely interesting and is definitely something that could happen in the future, if artificial intelligence is misused by people. This was generally a worthwhile read and was useful to my research at it provides an alternative idea for the uses of artificial intelligence, stating that they could pose an extremely large threat to us.

 

The limitations to this article as that it is extremely long and draws out the information throughout the article. I still believe that this is an extremely useful article and something that can be used in my research topic as it directly relates to the future of artificial intelligence.

Tom Gilbert's curator insight, March 22, 2013 7:42 AM

Many science fiction cultures interpret artificial intelligence as a generally bad thing, is this because of our fear of the unknown? that we could possibly build something more sophisticated than our brain (fun fact: the brain is the only thing to have named itself,profound, i know...) or is this general fear of artificial intelligence root from the fact of how unnatural a concept it is to us. Recently nasa has been concerned of coming asteroids, as far enough as to plan for  some sort of planetery defense mechanism, so comparing artificial intelligence to the impact of an asteroid with the earth shows not only how seriously some are concerned about developments in the technology, but for many it may cause them to feel less threatened by the AI, because of how tangible an asteroid is. If we can see it; it poses a larger threat.
