Ethically Hacking The 21st century: How To Own The Future Driven By Artificial Intelligence By Understanding Guiding AI Principles Agreed On By Top Researchers In Asilomar, Carlifonia - MMIMMC

#artificialintelligence

Recently, in cognizance of this seismic shift, the world's top AI researchers met in Asilomar, California to deliberate on AI principles and goals. In doing so, this eminent artificial intelligence society gifted humanity a framework of how to own the future. It is only by navigating AI ethical dilemmas, that we will avail the life saving technologies of applied artificial intelligence. The EU in its Responsible Research and Innovation initiative calls for investment in legal, social and ethics [LSE] research. Investment in LSE research will generate knowledge that can match artificial intelligence goals and society's needs.


The Future of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

This talk proposes that the future of artificial intelligence is smart networks that have intelligence "baked in" in the form of Blockchain Distributed Ledgers for confirming authenticity and transferring value, and Deep Learning Algorithms for predictive identification. Smart networks are not a far-off possibility but already needed as deep learning systems are going online in connected apps for Autonomous Driving and Drone Delivery, and Human-Robot Interaction. Two high-impact contemporary emerging technologies for the future of AI are Blockchain Distributed Ledgers and Deep Learning Algorithms, and discusses their implications for the future of artificial intelligence.


The Essence of Explainable AI: Interpretability

#artificialintelligence

SAN FRANCISCO – Applications of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning are relatively useless without a lucid understanding of how the outputs of their predictive models are derived. Explainable AI hinges on explainability--a clear verbalizing of how the various weights and measures of machine learning models generate their outputs. Those explanations, in turn, are determined by interpretability: the statistical or mathematical understanding of the numerical outputs of decisions made by predictive models. Interpretability is foundational to unraveling some of the more consistent issues plaguing AI today. Facilitating interpretability--and using it as the impetus for refining machine learning models and the data on which they're trained--is indispensable for overcoming the threat of biased models once and for all.



This AI-powered text generator is the scariest thing I've ever seen -- and you can try it

#artificialintelligence

OpenAI, a nonprofit focused on creating human-level artificial intelligence, just released an update to its GPT-2 text generator. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that, after trying it, I'm legitimately terrified for the future of humanity if we don't figure out a way to detect AI-generated content – and soon. GPT-2 isn't a killer robot and my fears aren't that AI is going to rise up against us. I'm terrified of GPT-2 because it represents the kind of technology that evil humans are going to use to manipulate the population -- and in my opinion that makes it more dangerous than any gun. Here's how it works: you give it a prompt and it near-instantly spits out a bunch of words.


'Don't be afraid of AI': Daniel Pitchford on how businesses can demystify new technology

#artificialintelligence

"With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the devil." So said Tesla chief and all-round tech titan Elon Musk back in 2014. When someone of his standing makes a statement like that, it should give pause for thought. But according to Daniel Pitchford, co-founder of AI Business, this view, while pretty common, is over-egging the situation slightly. We'll tell you what's true.


The fight against deepfakes

#artificialintelligence

Last week at the Black Hat cybersecurity conference in Las Vegas, the Democratic National Committee tried to raise awareness of the dangers of AI-doctored videos by displaying a deepfaked video of DNC Chair Tom Perez. Deepfakes are videos that have been manipulated, using deep learning tools, to superimpose a person's face onto a video of someone else. As the 2020 presidential election draws near, there's increasing concern over the potential threats deepfakes pose to the democratic process. In June, the U.S. Congress House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence held a hearing to discuss the threats of deefakes and other AI-manipulated media. But there's doubt over whether tech companies are ready to deal with deepfakes.


Consciousness And The Inter Mind

#artificialintelligence

We Do Not See Objects We Detect Objects. 10 Arguments For The Conscious Mind. 4 Arguments For The Inter Mind. What Is And Where Is Conscious Space. 10 Developing An Artificial Inter Mind. 10 Conscious Artificial Intelligence Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 Human Consciousness Transfer Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 Reality Is A Simulation Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 If A Tree Falls In A Forest Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 The Big Bang happens and a new Universe is created. This Universe consists of Matter, Energy, and Space. After billions of years of complicated interactions and processes the Matter, Energy, and Space produce a planet with Conscious Life Forms (CLFs). In the course of their evolution the CLFs will need to See each other in order to live and interact with each other. But what does it really mean to See? A CLF is first of all a Physical Thing. There is no magic power that just lets a CLF See another CLF.



Opinion Artificial intelligence isn't a threat to humanity

#artificialintelligence

There are multiple factors supporting the claim that AI is in fact not a threat to humankind, but rather an advantage. One factor is that humans thrives off of social interaction and human communication, which robots evidently can't provide. While online chatbots are a useful and efficient form of artificial intelligence, robots lack the necessary emotional connection to humans. In addition, while AI can replace certain human occupations, it also has the potential to increase job opportunities for people in the technology field. Lastly, as seen at Walmart, AI can improve the efficiency of employees without necessarily replacing them.
