Kimera Systems announced the birth of Nigel – the world's first commercial human-like intelligence technology for connected devices. Nigel was delivered at a birthday party held last Friday in downtown Portland by its creator, Kimera co-founder and CEO Mounir Shita. The Nigel artificial general intelligence (AGI) technology began learning immediately in the same way humans do: by observing the behavior of people with Nigel-enabled devices. Shita began working on his single-algorithm, federated approach to artificial intelligence in 2005, and Kimera Systems was formally incorporated in 2012. The technology was dubbed "Nigel" to honor one of its principal architects, Nigel Deighton, a noted international expert on wireless technologies and a former Gartner research vice president, who passed away in 2013.
Would you trust a robot to tell you how to vote? Scientists from Kimera Systems have developed a robot that will be able to help users make political decisions. The robot named'Nigel' uses artificial intelligence (AI) to become aware of its user's life and utilise the information by offering advice to user's including how to vote. Unlike other AI robots Nigel programmes itself as it goes, rather than teach itself how to perform and effectively carry out tasks. It works solely on how the user is themselves, for example if they offer traits of a left wing supporter he will adapt to that life style.
If you're struggling to decide how to vote in the next election, then help may be at hand – in the form of a robot. Scientists have created an artificial intelligence robot called Nigel that will soon be able to assist users in making political decisions. But while its designers are confident that the robot will be able to help you make these important decisions in the future, they emphasise that they are'still way off' from this goal. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is an emerging field aimed at building'thinking machines.' These are general-purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind.
Mounir "Mo" Shita is an entrepreneur with over two decades of experience who is changing the world. He founded Kimera Systems to revolutionize the way technology and humans interact by bringing artificial general intelligence (AGI) to the world. Mounir envisions a future where technology proactively helps people achieve their goals. Mounir's AI experience led him to develop a single-algorithm AGI in 2005 that learns the way humans do, giving connected devices common sense as learned through observing how humans behave in real-life. Kimera calls this technology "Nigel" which is named after its co-creator Nigel Deighton who passed away in 2013.
The field of artificial intelligence has spawned a vast range of subset fields and terms: machine learning, neural networks, deep learning and cognitive computing, to name but a few. However here we will turn our attention to the specific term'artificial general intelligence', thanks to the Portland-based AI company Kimera Systems' (momentous) claim to have launched the world's first ever example, called Nigel. The AGI Society defines artificial general intelligence as "an emerging field aiming at the building of "thinking machines"; that is general-purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind (and perhaps ultimately well beyond human general intelligence)". AGI would, in theory, be able to perform any intellectual feat a human can. You can now perhaps see why a claim to have launched the world's first ever AGI might be a tad ambitious, to say the least.
