Creative machines: How close are we to AI-generated content marketing?

#artificialintelligence

In this article we'll look at what it would take for an artificial intelligence to generate truly creative content marketing, and how close we are to living in a world with AI content marketers. For the purposes of this article, let's keep this restricted to a typical content marketing campaign that involves idea generation and content production in the forms of a video, some text-based articles with accompanying images, and social media promotion. News outlets can depend on AI to write accurate stories on events, but AI has also developed the ability to produce creative work through the usage of neural networks. Similar experiments have been undertaken to see how well an artificial intelligence system can understand the structure of literary works.


People Petition Donald Trump To Take Mensa-Monitored IQ Test

International Business Times

President Donald Trump might claim that he is a brilliant man with a high intelligence quotient (IQ) but from time to time, critics have questioned his general knowledge and a petition created Thursday on "We the People" demanded the president take a Mensa monitored IQ test. The petition targeted the Trump administration's policies and stated: "For whatever reason, telling people how smart he is appears to be very important to him -- and since his presidency thus far has allowed for all types of trivial engagements, he should simply shut down the non believers and have his IQ formally tested." Twitter users were abuzz targeting the president. Another user wrote: "Won't work because the questions they ask are picked based off of whatever age group you are in and the scores are calculated from that same pool.

Will #ArtificialIntelligence surpass human intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence today is making progress exponentially and opening new horizons as to the possibilities it provides us. While some view it as a chance at eradicating hunger and solving illiteracy and poverty, others are concerned about a future where machines surpass human intelligence and make decisions that endanger our safety and survival. The singularity, therefore, is a hypothetical moment in time where artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence and result in unthinkable changes to the human civilization. So, our fear here is the development of something that surpasses humans, as the artificially intelligent machine would then proceed to redesign and improve itself at an alarming rate, even perceive actions against it and defend itself.

Is Artificial Intelligence Possible? - DZone AI

In the 1950s, Turing published a paper called "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" in which he proposed an empirical test that identifies an intelligent behavior "when there is no discernible difference between the conversation generated by the machine and that of an intelligent person." Many theorists have disputed the Turing Test as an acceptable means of proving artificial intelligence. Sleepwalkers' use of protolanguage (short, grammar-free utterances with referential meaning lacking syntax) may illustrate that the consciousness is a social adaptation and that other animals do not lack understanding or sensation, but that they lack language skills and therefore cannot reflect on their sensations and become self-aware. Can their minds be algorithmically simulated?


Does your product need non-human intelligence? – Machine Learnings

The team's long-term vision for AI is ambitious: reproduce what's going on in an actual human conversation. There's a much bigger gap to bridge between AI and the human brain, and that's cognition: "the mental faculty of knowing, which includes perceiving, recognizing, conceiving, judging, reasoning, and imagining" In all fairness, today's AI does very little of that. For example, neural networks do not perceive, judge, or recognize a face. And whatever makes us happy is the product of some arbitrary personal criteria -- an expression of our personalities that little has to do with achieving the best possible outcome.


Should robot artists be given copyright protection?

#artificialintelligence

But who owns creative works generated by artificial intelligence? Unlike with earlier computer-generated works of art, machine learning software generates truly creative works without human input or intervention. What's more, case law from the European Court of Justice has declared on various occasions that copyright only applies to original works, and originality must reflect the "author's own intellectual creation". This is usually understood as meaning that an original work must reflect the author's personality, which clearly means that a human author is necessary for a copyright work to exist.


Machines Get Even Closer to Human Intelligence – IoT For All – Medium

When tested on the CLEVR dataset (a benchmark for determining an AI system's ability to reason about visual data), RN-augmented networks fared better than humans at 95.5% accuracy. Another task that separates human cognition with computer systems is our ability to predict the near future based on our understanding of the physical relationships. DeepMind's paper on Visual Interaction Network (VIN) attempts to train computers on the physics of objects and their relationships based on their position and time. Rather, VIN takes in the states of the objects and predicts their positions in the future using its learned system of physical rules.


AI Works Better with Human Intelligence, Too - InformationWeek

Eric Williams, VP of Data Science & Analytics at Omada Health provided a view into how his digital therapeutics company is combining AI with human intelligence to help pre-diabetic patients lose weight. Williams provided these insights during the Interop ITX session, Where Artificial Intelligence Meets Human Intelligence: Building Digital Healthcare for the Future. To help companies and insurers help patients make the behavioral changes necessary to prevent diabetes, Omada provides a "Symphony" of tools that include scales, wearables, and a food-tracking app. As part of its evolution, Omada sought to complement its health coaches with digital health coaches.
