Google's Go victory shows AI thinking can be unpredictable, and that's a concern

#artificialintelligence

Humans have been taking a beating from computers lately. The 4-1 defeat of Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol by Google's AlphaGo artificial intelligence (AI) is only the latest in a string of pursuits in which technology has triumphed over humanity. Self-driving cars are already less accident-prone than human drivers, the TV quiz show Jeopardy! is a lost cause, and in chess humans have fallen so woefully behind computers that a recent international tournament was won by a mobile phone. There is a real sense that this month's human vs AI Go match marks a turning point. Go has long been held up as requiring levels of human intuition and pattern recognition that should be beyond the powers of number-crunching computers.


Google just proved how unpredictable artificial intelligence can be

Humans have been taking a beating from computers lately. The 4-1 defeat of Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol by Google's AlphaGo artificial intelligence (AI) is only the latest in a string of pursuits in which technology has triumphed over humanity. Self-driving cars are already less accident-prone than human drivers, the TV quiz show Jeopardy! is a lost cause, and in chess humans have fallen so woefully behind computers that a recent international tournament was won by a mobile phone. Researchers from Western Sydney University two reasons why AIs are'our greatest threat. The first being they are trained with logic and heuristics.


'Would I Put A Sociopathic Genius In Charge Of This Process?' Artificial Intelligence Concerns Rising As AlphaGo Wins Big

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is making waves once again as Google's AlphaGo made headlines after it defeated Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol for the first time. While many are calling gains in AI a win for society, others are voicing concerns over the future of a society in which computers can outperform humans in almost every conceivable fashion. Whether it is self-driving cars or a simple game of chess, artificial intelligence is continually one-upping humanity. The latest Go grandmaster defeat is just the icing on the cake. Therefore, some are saying it is time that we start looking at practical application of AI technology while understanding that AI is "unpredictable" and "immoral."


Go Match Raises Concern Over Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

After a drawn-out battle, South Korea's Go grandmaster with 9-dan rank, Lee Sedol, lost his fifth game against Google's artificial intelligence (AI) program AlphaGo in Seoul on March 15, 2016. AlphaGo's win over one of the world's best players shocked the world's Go circle. Due to the complexity of the nature of Go, which requires intuition, creativity, and strategic thinking, it was believed that Go was the only board game that no computers could conquer. Hong Kong's Go champion, Lee Cheuk-leung, was surprised at the result of the fifth match, in which Lee Sedol had the upper hand in the first half of the game, but somehow lost to the computer eventually. Experts from the Go circle initially expected Lee Sedol to win all five games, but he ultimately lost four of them to the computer.
