Robot Programmed To Feel Pain

#artificialintelligence

German researchers have designed a robot that can "feel pain" such as intense heat or pressure and then retract from the danger, a capability intended to protect the robot from harm just like the pain response in humans. I always thought BattleBots could use higher emotional stakes." "Wait, so does this make them harder or easier to kill?"


What Could Go Wrong? US Unveils Artificially Intelligent Fighter Pilot

#artificialintelligence

'The two most aggressive military forces in the world have added a new frontier in their immense ability to deal death and destruction. In the same week, an Israeli firm launched the first-ever torpedo from an unmanned sea vessel while a U.S. artificially intelligent fighter pilot easily won combat simulations against human pilots. These achievements are a testament to the sad reality that military interests are often the first to take advantage of wondrous advancements such as AI, just as nuclear physics and other technologies were hijacked for more efficient methods of killing.'

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach (AIMA) is a university textbook on artificial intelligence, written by Stuart J. Russell and Peter Norvig. The third edition of the book was released 11 December 2009. It is used in over 1100 universities worldwide[1] and has been called "the most popular artificial intelligence textbook in the world".[2] The book is intended for an undergraduate audience but can also be used for graduate-level studies with the suggestion of adding some of the primary sources listed in the extensive bibliography. Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach is divided into seven parts with a total of 27 chapters.[3]


Google's DeepMind parners with NHS: All the better to see you with

#artificialintelligence

Google's partnered with the NHS' Moorfields eye-hospital in London to apply its DeepMind AI to help identify eye diseases earlier. Google's machine learning division could help curb the number of people suffering from sight loss in the UK, but it's not the first time DeepMind has been applied to healthcare; an app called Hark, acquired by Google, has been working on a pre-warning system for NHS staff to alert them to patients at risk of deterioration or death as the result of kidney failure.


Google AI has solved the '100 hat riddle,' used in job interviews

#artificialintelligence

A pair of riddles used during job interviews for Google and Goldman Sachs may have many applicants perplexed, but it's no problem for artificial intelligence. Google's deep neural network was put through the tests of the'hats riddle' and the'switch riddle' both which require complex-problem solving to determine the fates of hypothetical prisoners. The answers to these riddles are based upon coordinated strategy, and the researchers say the AI's ability to master such tasks reveals a step in the direction of collaborative systems. The prisoners can see the hats of the people lined up in from of them, but they cannot look at the hats behind them, or at their own. The executioner asks the last prisoner to state the colour of his hat.


Are Robots Really Bad For Humans?

#artificialintelligence

As of today the connection between the robots and us is very limited. However, the advent of robots in the human life is becoming rather beneficial as the artificial intelligence is progressing. While the connection between the robots and humans is very limited, and as the technology advances, the role of robots in our lives is increasing as the technology advances. A noticeable change that happens to occur with the rise of robots is the loss of jobs. The technology has always been replacing people in the monotonous jobs with advanced machinery – robots.


From AI to the Internet of Things: Publicis picks 90 startups for mentoring and funding

#artificialintelligence

At the Viva Technology conference, held in Paris, France, June 30 to July 2, 2016, Publicis Groupe announced its pick of the 90 most innovative startups that will receive funding and mentoring as part of the Publicis90 global initiative. The 90 winning projects reflect the major current trends in technology, including virtual reality, the Internet of Things and data security. The top three winning projects include Israeli startup Emerald Medical Applications, which specializes in dermatology, using the latest image recognition technology to make skin cancer detection quicker and easier. Another Israeli startup, Wiseye, specializes in retail and the Internet of Things. The company has developed a platform that gives retail industry professionals customer behavior insights based on data from several sources.


Google's AI looks deep into your eyes to diagnose disease

#artificialintelligence

Every week, Moorfields Eye Hospital in London performs 3,000 optical coherence tomography scans to diagnose vision problems. The scans, which use scattered light to create high-resolution 3D images of the retina, produce large quantities of data, and its analysis is slow. Understanding the images requires trained and experienced human eyes to identify problems specific to each case, leaving little or no time to identify broader, population-wide trends that could make early detection easier. That's just the kind of task that artificial intelligence can be used to tackle, though. So it's perhaps not surprising that Google's AI wing, DeepMind, has decided to partner with the hospital to apply machine learning to the problem as part of its Health program.


Geta load of this, Chinese robot parks your car for you

Daily Mail - Science & tech

The dreaded act of parallel parking could soon become a thing of the past with Chinese inventors backing their new parking robot to take away the stress for anxious drivers. The laser-guided'Geta' (get a car) robot slides under your vehicle to pick it up. It then finds a parking space in the lot and places the car in the tightest of spots. The laser-guided'Geta' (get a car) robot slides under your vehicle to pick it up. The laser-guided'Geta' (get a car) robot slides under your vehicle to pick it up.


Google experts reveal what it would take to live forever digitally

Daily Mail - Science & tech

People have always dreamed about going beyond the limitations of their bodies: the pain, illness and, above all, death. Now a new movement is dressing up this ancient drive in new technological clothes. Referred to as transhumanism, it is the belief that science will provide a futuristic way for humans to evolve beyond their current physical forms and realise these dreams of transcendence. A new movement is dressing up this ancient drive in new technological clothes. To replicate the mind digitally we would have to map each of these connections, something that is far beyond our current capabilities.
