By applying our global cloud AI, machine learning and deep neural network capabilities to that data, we can accelerate the work already being done to make autonomous vehicles safer," Kevin Dallas, corporate vice-president, Microsoft said in the press release Tuesday. Both companies are working on creating the background support for self-driving, including cloud infrastructure, software stack and other services which can support self-driving car functions.


Elon Musk: Regulate AI Before Robots Start 'Killing People'

#artificialintelligence

Elon Musk thinks the government needs to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) now, before it becomes dangerous to humanity, the entrepreneur told a gathering of state governors over the weekend. "I have exposure to the very cutting-edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it," Musk told attendees at the National Governors Association summer meeting on Saturday (July 15). "I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don't know how to react, because it seems so ethereal." Musk isn't the only scientist to sound alarm bells over AI.

The president's oldest son, currently embroiled in controversy over a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer, is "miserable" as a result of the increased scrutiny that comes with his father's position in public service, according to an unnamed source in People magazine.


AI Researchers Disagree With Elon Musk's Warnings About Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

He's spoken about it so many times, but perhaps not in the strongest terms as when he told U.S. governors that artificial intelligence (AI) poses "a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization." "While there needs to be an open discussion about the societal impacts of AI technology, much of Mr. Musk's oft-repeated concerns seem to focus on the rather far-fetched super-intelligence take-over scenarios," Arizona State University computer scientist Subbarao Kambhampati told Inverse. Both Kambhampati and Ha commented on the premise that Musk -- because of his work in OpenAI, in developing self-driving technologies in Tesla, and his recent Neuralink project -- has access to cutting edge AI technologies so knows what he's talking about. While the technology has seen tremendous advances recently, and some experts think that we're closer to reaching the technological singularity (when computers surpass human-level intelligence), current AI isn't as advanced as those doomsday robots we see in science fiction.


A Sorta-Self-Driving Mercedes Tackles Americans' Greatest Fear: the Roundabout

WIRED

This newly juiced system has the car automatically slow down for turns in the road ahead to help the driver steer safely through. Unlike a (good) human motorist, the car won't wait for breaks in the traffic flow before entering roundabouts. The limitations extend to the S-Class's updated lane changing feature. If a robocar can get through a roundabout--the kind of driving move that flummoxes many Americans--a simple lane change maneuver shouldn't be scary at all.


Elon Musk: Artificial Intelligence Poses 'Existential Risk'

Colorado's Governor John Hickenlooper, who was there, described that moment to NPR. GREENE: I mean, he said that AI, artificial intelligence, is out of control. SHAHANI: ...Which AI systems will not have. I mean, the thing they have to pay attention to at this moment is data, big data, OK?


Elon Musk just told a group of America's governors that we need to regulate AI before it's too late

#artificialintelligence

But there is something that really scares Musk: Artificial Intelligence, and the idea of software and machines taking over their human creators. He's been warning people about AI for years, and today called it the "biggest risk we face as a civilization" when he spoke at the National Governors Association Summer Meeting in Rhode Island. Musk then called on the government to proactively regulate artificial intelligence before things advance too far. AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization."


Elon Musk: Artificial Intelligence 'Greatest Risk We Face as a Civilization'

#artificialintelligence

Tesla CEO Elon Musk issued a dire warning about artificial intelligence, calling it "the greatest risk we face as a civilization." "AI's a rare case where we need to be proactive in regulation, instead of reactive. Because by the time we are reactive with AI regulation, it's too late," Musk said. "AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization, in a way that car accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs, or bad food were not."
