Intelligent Systems And Their Societies

Artificial Intelligent Systems First humanity had tools, then we added force to them, and had the machine, now we are adding intelligence and will get robots and intelligent computers.But why build artificial intelligent systems? Because they help us better than tools or machines to live more comfortably! Eventually, they will free us of all material worries. An artificial intelligent system is a computer program that has parts for each of the functions described in the intelligent system document. It functions the same way that a biological brain does, only it performs this in an electronic way instead of by activating neurons.

Jeff Dean From Google - Deep Learning for Building Intelligent Computer Systems


Talk held on Feb, 3rd 2016 "Four years ago we started the Google Brain project, a small effort to see if we could build training systems for large-scale deep neural networks and use these to make significant progress on various perceptual tasks. Since then, our software systems and algorithms have been used by dozens of different groups at Google to train state-of-the-art models for speech recognition, image recognition, various visual detection tasks, language modeling, search ranking, language translation, and various other tasks. We have recently open-sourced TensorFlow, our second generation software system for developing and deploying models. In this talk, I'll highlight some of the distributed systems and algorithms that we use in order to train large models quickly. I'll then discuss ways in which we have applied this work to a variety of problems in Google's products, usually in close collaboration with other teams."

Design Principals for Intelligent Environments

AAAI Conferences

This paper describes design criteria for creating highly embedded, interactive spaces that we call Intelligent Environments (IEs). The motivation for building IEs is bring computation into the real, physical world. The goal is to allow computers to participate in activities that have never previously involved computation and to allow people to interact with computational systems the way they would with other people: via gesture, voice, movement, and context. We describe an existing prototype space, known as the Intelligent Room, which is a research platform for exploring the design of intelligent environments. The Intelligent Room was created to experiment with different forms of natural, multimodai human-computer interaction (HCI) during what is traditionally considered noncomputational activity. It is equipped with numerous computer vision, speech and gesture recognition systems that connect it to what its inhabitants are doing and saying. Our primary concern here is how IEs should be designed and created. Intelligent environments, like traditional multimodal user interfaces, are integrations of methods and systems from a wide array of subdisciplines in the This material is based upon work supported by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense under contract number F30602--94---C---0204, monitored through Rome Laboratory and Griffiss Air Force Base. Additional support was provided by the Mitsubishi Electronic Research Laboratories.

The Rise of the Planet of the AI: Should We Fear the Future?


From Elon Musk to Stephen Hawking, individuals around the globe are calling for caution and warning about the potentially dangerous pitfalls of artificially intelligent systems. It seems that each day brings forth a new autonomous robot or a new use for an intelligent system. Add to that all the movies and books in which AI is the evil "bad guy," and it's easy to feel like undercurrents of fear are slowly permeating our society. But how much of our fear is a joke, and how much of our fear is justified? We have previously covered the sensationalism and hype that often surrounds conversations about AI, but here, the Future of Life brings experts together to take a deeper dive into these issues.

What is AI? Everything you need to know about Artificial Intelligence


It depends who you ask. AI might be a hot topic but you'll still need to justify those projects. Back in the 1950s, the fathers of the field Minsky and McCarthy, described artificial intelligence as any task performed by a program or a machine that, if a human carried out the same activity, we would say the human had to apply intelligence to accomplish the task. That obviously is a fairly broad definition, which is why you will sometimes see arguments over whether something is truly AI or not. AI systems will typically demonstrate at least some of the following behaviors associated with human intelligence: planning, learning, reasoning, problem solving, knowledge representation, perception, motion, and manipulation and, to a lesser extent, social intelligence and creativity. AI is ubiquitous today, used to recommend what you should buy next online, to recognise what you say to virtual assistants such as Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri, to recognise who and what is in a photo, to spot spam, or detect credit card fraud. At a very high level artificial intelligence can be split into two broad types: narrow AI and general AI.
