Google creates AI that can make its own plans and envisage consequences of its actions

The Independent

Google's artificial intelligence division is developing AI that can make its own plans. DeepMind says its "Imagination-Augmented Agents" can "imagine" the possible consequences of their actions, and interpret those simulations. They can then make the right decision for what it is they want to achieve. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph. The giant human-like robot bears a striking resemblance to the military robots starring in the movie'Avatar' and is claimed as a world first by its creators from a South Korean robotic company Waseda University's saxophonist robot WAS-5, developed by professor Atsuo Takanishi and Kaptain Rock playing one string light saber guitar perform jam session A man looks at an exhibit entitled'Mimus' a giant industrial robot which has been reprogrammed to interact with humans during a photocall at the new Design Museum in South Kensington, London Electrification Guru Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart talks about the electric Jaguar I-PACE concept SUV before it was unveiled before the Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California, U.S The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar.


Elon Musk, DeepMind and AI researchers promise not to develop robot killing machines

The Independent

Elon Musk and many of the world's most respected artificial intelligence researchers have committed not to build autonomous killer robots. The public pledge not to make any "lethal autonomous weapons" comes amid increasing concern about how machine learning and AI will be used on the battlefields of the future. The signatories to the new pledge – which includes the founders of DeepMind, a founder of Skype, and leading academics from across the industry – promise that they will not allow the technology they create to be used to help create killing machines. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

Google's controversial DeepMind deal for 1.6 million NHS patients' data called legally 'inappropriate'

The Independent - Tech

Google's artificial intelligence division received the medical records of 1.6 million people on an "inappropriate legal basis", according to a leaked letter from a top government adviser. DeepMind controversially struck up a data-sharing deal with the Royal Free Hospital Trust, for the creation of an app called Streams. In February last year, Google said Streams would help hospital staff monitor patients with kidney disease, but a document obtained by New Scientist caused further concern when it revealed that DeepMind was receiving historical medical data, records of the location and status of patients, and even details about visitors.

Deep Learning Outwits Cyber Attackers and Poachers, Google Releases Q1 Numbers, and More – This Week in Artificial Intelligence 04-22-16

#artificialintelligence

Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Laboratory (CSAIL) alongside machine learning-startup PatternEx have created a new cybersecurity defense system that makes use of both unsupervised and supervised learning methods. Human analysts are then presented with the data and given an opportunity to identify actual attacks, which are then fed back into the machine. The system learns and refines its accuracy over time. CSAIL research scientist Kalyan Veeramachaneni, one of AI,2's co-creators, described it this way: "The more attacks the system detects, the more analyst feedback it receives, which, in turn, improves the accuracy of future predictions. That human-machine interaction creates a beautiful, cascading effect."
