The end is nigh! A killer robot has been taught how to hunt predators

#artificialintelligence

Scientists have taught a robot how to hunt and destroy prey in a chilling new experiment. The test comes as experts warm AI could wipe out a tenth of the global population in five years. The ability to identify and zone in on a specific target will be crucial for any useful robotic technology like driverless cars, the researchers at the University of Zurich in Switzerland believe. And despite the chilling prospect of allowing a robot to mark up a target, they believe their research will prove more useful than deadly.

News concerning Artificial Intelligence (AI) abounds again. The progress with Deep Learning techniques are quite remarkable with such demonstrations of self-driving cars, Watson on Jeopardy, and beating human Go players. This rate of progress has led some notable scientists and business people to warn about the potential dangers of AI as it approaches a human level. Exascale computers are being considered that would approach what many believe is this level. However, there are many questions yet unanswered on how the human brain works, and specifically the hard problem of consciousness with its integrated subjective experiences.


The Future of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

His research focuses at the intersection of computer vision, AI, machine learning, and graphics, with particular emphasis on systems that allow people to interact naturally with computers. These projects include the UK's biometric matching system and the International Technology Alliance research programme into novel sensor networks. Dr Waggett has extensive experience of innovative IT systems, including research into image processing at University College London and the Marconi Research Centre. His work includes responsibility for the delivery of innovative systems for a range of government and commercial organisations and he has been the Big Data subject matter expert for a range of projects and clients including the UK's biometric visa matching system.


Report finds 38% of US jobs will lost to robots by 2030

Daily Mail - Science & tech

While millions of people fearing a robot run world, it is Americans who should worry the most. A new report has found that 38 percent of US jobs will be replaced by robots and artificial intelligence by the early 2030s. The analysis, by accountancy giant PwC, has also revealed that it is financials service jobs that are at most risk of a robot takeover - 61 percent could be replaced by machines. While millions of people fearing a robot run world – it is Americans that should worry the most. PwC found that 4 in 10 jobs in the US are at risk of being replaced by robots.
