Elon Musk Reminds Us of the Possible Dangers of Unregulated AI


On a more serious note, Musk said that the danger AI poses is more of a risk than the threat posed by North Korea. "[We] need a framework that's adaptable – no single fixed set of rules, laws, or principles that will be good for governing AI. In a 2014 interview, the renowned physicist stated that "The development of artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race." Another expert, Michael Vassar, chief science officer of MetaMed Research, stated: "If greater-than-human artificial general intelligence is invented without due caution, it is all but certain that the human species will be extinct in very short order."

Elon Musk's Artificial Intelligence Bot Just Beat World's Best eSports Players - What's The Future Of AI ? -- Steemit


It was up against a crowd favorite, the pro player "Dendi" who is one of the best in the world when it comes to Dota 2. He was surprised that it was possible for the AI machine to beat a human player - and therefore human intelligence. We've seen AI beat humans in games like Chess or Go before - but nothing as advanced as Dota 2. So how do you teach a computer to play such a complex game like Dota 2?

Fiat teams up with BMW in race to build 'robotaxis'

Daily Mail

Fiat Chrysler will join an alliance led by BMW to develop self-driving cars, intensifying a race by carmakers and technology companies to develop'robotaxis' which can be called up via smartphone and paid for by the minute. Fiat Chrysler will join an alliance led by BMW to develop self-driving cars, intensifying a race by carmakers and technology companies to develop'robotaxis' which can be called up via smartphone and paid for by the minute BMW and its partners Intel and Mobileye said FCA would bring engineering and other expertise to the deal, paving the way to creating an industry-wide autonomous car platform which other carmakers could adopt. This includes Intel, DENSO, Ericsson, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT), NTT DOCOMO and both the Toyota InfoTechnology Center Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. Also joining the consortium are DENSO, Ericsson, Intel, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT), and NTT DOCOMO.

Elon Musk thinks AI is a bigger threat than North Korea


But according to Elon Musk, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) poses a much greater threat to humanity than Kim Jong-un's belligerent regime in Pyongyang. The Tesla and SpaceX chief executive has long warned of the dangers of AI and issued his latest opinion after a bot from OpenAI defeated some of the world's best players in in a professional gaming competition. Musk has previously urged governors to legislate for safe uses of AI, stating that robots could replace humans in any kind of job and could be incentivized to harm humans. Musk shot back that Zuckerberg's understanding of the subject was "limited."

Fiat Chrysler will get Intel inside its autonomous cars


Intel needs alliances with car manufacturers to make that happen. Fiat Chrysler joins today to co-develop technology for level 3 (partly) and level 4/5 (fully) autonomous cars, which the consortium aims to have on the road by 2021. Along the way, they aim to sign up other car companies to license the technology that Intel and the founding members build. "It will be a system that's licensable by any other automaker in the world [that] wants to use it," says Weast.

An inside look at Ford's $1 billion bet on Argo A.I.


In broad terms, Argo is developing self-driving technology that Ford can use to deploy fully autonomous Level 4-capable vehicles for commercial on-demand service. The end result is a full-stack system designed just for Ford's self-driving vehicles so they know where they are in the world, can detect and understand objects in their environment, and then make the right decisions. The road ahead for Argo AI -- and Ford, for the matter -- is dotted with obstacles. "I think that Ford had a start," Salesky said, noting the company's decade of autonomous research and development.

Elon Musk's self-taught AI bot destroyed an esports pro in 'Dota 2'


In many ways, esports represents the future. Like so many other parts of our modern lives, it's built around the computer and the internet. Competitions like'Dota 2's' "The International" draw players from around the world, shrugging off the geopolitical and cultural boundaries that still define many traditional sports. And above all, it fully utilizes man's most potent attribute: the mind.

The Artist Who Made Zuckerberg Out of Poop Has a New Muse: Elon Musk


"I'm pretty blown away at how good his hair plugs are," says Katsu, whose mysterious posters appeared in San Francisco and New York City. Criminals," Katsu's new art show opening this weekend in San Francisco, which explores the idea of artificial intelligence as this generation's atomic energy, where the race to profits outweighs the risks. The show explores the risks of artificial intelligence, so Musk--a crusader for the same cause--seemed like a good fit, Katsu says: "We're going into an age where titans of tech are mutating into these weird idols in our head." By building systems trained on "biased data generated from biased policies," Katsu says, we will perpetuate the cycle: "We're teaching our offspring our same biases.

Intel's self-driving powerhouse group adds another major carmaker


The autonomous development group spearheaded by Intel, Mobileye and BMW Group announced today that it will add Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to its ranks. FCA is the parent company behind instantly recognizable auto brands like Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge. The company's Chrysler brand famously partnered with leading autonomous technology company Waymo, providing the Google-spinoff with a fleet of 100 Pacifica minivans which are currently on the road shuttling passengers around Phoenix in one of the first driverless pilot programs. The Intel/Mobileye/BMW group, which was formed back in 2016, meanwhile has stated that it's on track to accomplish its previously stated goal of putting a fleet 40 autonomous test vehicles on the road by the end of this year.

How BMW Uses Artificial Intelligence And Big Data To Design And Build Cars Of Tomorrow


But technology is not just limited to the cars it builds, its business model is built on Big Data which drives everything it does across design, engineering, production, sales and customer support. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), data-driven predictive analytics and other cutting edge technologies BMW is able to build the cars of today while at the same time envisaging and bringing to reality the cars of tomorrow. It has stated that its aim is for its vehicles to achieve full "level 5" autonomy by 2021. More details of how this would be achieved began to emerge earlier this year when BMW announced a partnership with Intel, which itself had recently acquired Mobileye, a leader in computer vision technology.
