Thinking Machines Will Change Future Warfare

#artificialintelligence

The greater use of artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous systems by the militaries of the world has the potential to affect deterrence strategies and escalation dynamics in crises and conflicts. Up until now, deterrence has involved humans trying to dissuade other humans from taking particular courses of action. What happens when the thinking and decision processes involved are no longer purely human? How might dynamics change when decisions and actions can be taken at machine speeds? How might AI and autonomy affect the ways that countries have developed to signal one another about the potential use of force?


The Thinking Machine: Paola Sturla calls on designers to renew their commitment to humanism - Harvard Graduate School of Design

#artificialintelligence

Smart cities, search engines, autonomous vehicles: The pairing of massive data sets and self-learning algorithms is transforming the world around us in ways that are not always easy to grasp. The strange ways computers "think" are hidden within opaque proprietary code. It has been called the "end of theory." There is a danger, says Paola Sturla, Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, that human agency will be nudged out of the picture. Sturla, who is trained as an architect and landscape architect, has called on designers to renew the tradition of humanism.


Richard Feynman: Can Machines Think?

#artificialintelligence

This is a Q&A excerpt on the topic of AI from a lecture by Richard Feynman from September 26th, 1985. This is a clip on the Lex Clips channel that I mostly use to post video clips from the Artificial Intelligence podcast, but occasionally I post favorite clips from lectures given by others. Hope you find these interesting, thought-provoking, and inspiring. If you do, please subscribe, click bell icon, and share! Artificial Intelligence podcast website: https://lexfridman.com/ai


The Age of Thinking Machines

#artificialintelligence

We live in the greatest time in human history. Only 200 years ago, for most Europeans, life was a struggle rather than a pleasure. Without antibiotics and hospitals, every infection was fatal. There was only a small elite of citizens who lived in the cities in relative prosperity. Freedom of opinion, human and civil rights were far away. Voting rights and decision-making were reserved for a class consisting of nobility, clergy, the military and rich citizens. The interests of the general population were virtually ignored.


The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity: Amy Webb: 9781541773752: Amazon.com: Books

#artificialintelligence

"Rather than questioning the character of thinking machines, futurist Amy Webb turns a critical eye on the humans behind the computers. With AI's development overwhelmingly driven by nine tech powerhouses, she asks: Is it possible for the technology to serve the best interests of everyone?"―Wired "Webb's assessments are based on analyses of patent filings, policy briefings, interviews and other sources. She paints vivid pictures of how AI could benefit the average person, via precision medicine or smarter dating apps...Her forecasts are provocative and unsettlingly plausible."―Science News "Instead of predicting the future, Webb lays out scenarios for optimistic, pragmatic, and catastrophic outcomes -- all extrapolated from current facts. However impractical you may find the idea of a common Apple-Amazon operating system named Applezon, considering potential scenarios is a fantastically healthy exercise, because anyone who tells you they know how AI is going to turn out is lying."―VentureBeat

#artificialintelligence

Technologies of advanced data processing Industry 4.0, including above all Learning machines and Artificial Intelligence is also used in the attempt to build machines equipped with the ability to self-improve the performed tasks and programmed activities. Perhaps in the future there will be an attempt to build artificial awareness in which supercomputers will be equipped. In my opinion, consciousness can only be mathematically modeled in theory. Even if a mathematical model of artificial consciousness were built using ICT and Industry 4.0 and in the future Industry 5.0 and based on this model artificial intelligence would be created in quantum computers installed e.g. in autonomous robots, androids, it will still be only artificial intelligence without emotions and the essence of human consciousness. An analysis of the nature of human thoughts is necessary to distinguish between human intelligence and various artificial intelligence technologies being developed.

159. AI, VR and a World Without Privacy as We Explore the Cosmos and What it Means to be Human August Bradley of Mind & Machine

#artificialintelligence

August Bradley (@augustbradley) is a futurist business consultant, founder/host of the Mind & Machine podcast and former COO of the pioneering virtual reality company Kite & Lightning. August's worked with brands including Coke, Xbox, Kia, Gap, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Fisker Automotive, and many more. He is also a Board Member & Director of the AI & Machine Learning Society, Chairman of the Technarte International Conference, technology series moderator for The Los Angeles ... See More World Affairs Council (LAWAC) and head of the Los Angeles Self Driving Car Meetup. In today's episode we discuss: - Why August and I won't let voice assistants in our homes - What happens next with VR and where it is headed - Which technologies worry August most and why - What does privacy look like in a more connected world - Why Facebook and social media are so bad for all of us - How Amazon helps transform healthcare - The reason AI and automation will be net-negative on jobs - What we have to look forward to when it comes to future technologies - The reason space exploration is so important and exciting - What do we do about big tech and regulation - Why August isn't worried about AI consciousness or superintelligence - The reason food science and clean meat is such a promising field to pursue - Why immigration is a stupid topic to focus on when it comes to jobs - Science fiction as a safety net
