The Walking, Talking What-if Machine - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

Then, on the basis of a positive future that you like the look of, your brain works to adapt reality to match it: you do what needs to be done in order to end up in that rewarding position you imagined. Everyone in the space of artificial intelligence has known for a long, long time that the gap between where we are and human level intelligence is somewhat vaster than one might be forgiven for believing… they just don't go to any particular effort to highlight it as it could, well, turn down the money taps. Being so far from human level intelligence doesn't mean that AI (and particularly the field of machine learning) has not enhanced our lives, because it has. It is revolutionising the way we interact with machines, enabling automation that we couldn't have dreamed of just a few years ago and is making great strides into areas like medical research, drug discovery, disease prevention and treatment that are hard to ignore. But we should separate the component parts in this field that deliver real things from the dream of what researchers call "artificial general intelligence" (AGI): digital what-if machines that can, amongst other things, generalise their knowledge to adapt to new situations, imagine the rewards of future options to make wiser decisions now and have a sense of "self" that would allow us to treat them as some form of intellectual equal. To stick to current deep learning techniques and their artificial neural networks on the basis that "we'll get there, folks" is naive and no serious research into general intelligence is doing so.


The Power of Natural Language Processing

#artificialintelligence

Until recently, the conventional wisdom was that while AI was better than humans at data-driven decision making tasks, it was still inferior to humans for cognitive and creative ones. But in the past two years language-based AI has advanced by leaps and bounds, changing common notions of what this technology can do. The most visible advances have been in what's called "natural language processing" (NLP), the branch of AI focused on how computers can process language like humans do. It has been used to write an article for The Guardian, and AI-authored blog posts have gone viral -- feats that weren't possible a few years ago. AI even excels at cognitive tasks like programming where it is able to generate programs for simple video games from human instructions.


The subtle art of language: why artificial general intelligence might be impossible

#artificialintelligence

Consciousness is arguably the most mysterious problem humans have ever encountered. In many famous philosophical essays, consciousness is regarded as unsolvable. Yet, as we speak, engineers and cognitive scientists are putting their noses to the grindstone to develop consciousness in artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Typically, this project is referred to as the development of "artificial general intelligence" (AGI), which covers a wide range of cognitive and intellectual abilities that humans possess. Thus far, this project -- being conducted globally in 72 independent research projects -- has not produced conscious robots.


Chasing The Myth: Why Achieving Artificial General Intelligence May Be A Pipe Dream

#artificialintelligence

Ever wondered what it would be like for a machine to observe, perceive and interact with its immediate environment and the world at large just like humans do? That is exactly what Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), the penultimate frontier of AI and a precursor to the God-like concept of Superintelligence, can enable machines and software applications to do. Artificial General Intelligence, a concept that has not yet been brought to life, will, for all purposes, think and carry out complex tasks such as corporate restructuring and HR management using characteristic human qualities such as logical reasoning, empathy and human-centeredness while retaining the expected computational speed, accuracy and big data analytics associated with standard AI applications. Although the abilities of the updated technology are somewhat well-known, one would need to know the exact differences between it and AI to then understand why we may not see AGI in the near future (or ever). Often, people confuse AGI with AI, which is loosely used nowadays by marketers and businesses to describe run-of-the-mill machine learning applications and even normal automation tools.


artificial intelligence and the future of humans - www.techgugu.com

#artificialintelligence

As an inquisitive tech enthusiast, I was reading the slogans of this century "Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning" a few days ago and it was absolutely fascinating how the slogans of this century are changing and likely to change the future of human life. Artificial intelligence not only affects the future of every industry and every person but also acts as the main engine of new technologies such as big data, robotics and the Internet of things. Its benefits and applications are much more important and worthy of attention than its fears, and this is exactly what will help people in the future. Artificial intelligence is a very complex area of modern science and a better understanding of how it works will lead to a better understanding of how it can impact our lives as humans the more it expands. AI operates on the hypothesis that technology will replicate and even surpass not only human intelligence in general, but also specific human abilities such as imagination, consciousness, and action.


Artificial General Intelligence vs AI: Explained

#artificialintelligence

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is an umbrella term for all artificial intelligence endeavours aimed at creating something that performs at or above the human level on most or all cognitive tasks. AI derives its meaning from the acronym Artificial Intelligence, which refers to a machine's ability to exhibit "intelligence." This is not necessarily human-level intelligence; instead, it suggests an agent's capability for learning, planning, and problem-solving. In contrast, Artificial General Intelligence should allow an agent to use these capabilities towards any cognitive task that humans can achieve with ease: e.g., deducing whether or not a novel is a detective story or flying an airplane. Artificial General Intelligence can be considered the ultimate manifestation of Artificial Intelligence because it applies to any task that a human brain can perform.


Artificial General Intelligence: To Worry or Not to Worry?

#artificialintelligence

In the famous Shakespeare play, "Hamlet", the play's protagonist asks the question, "To be or not to be." This line remains one of literature's unanswered inquiries, forcing readers to come to their own conclusion about which side of the question to take a stance on.


Growing Brains: Artificial Embryogeny

#artificialintelligence

The path to artificial general intelligence is still not understood very well. Today's mainstream approach of designing networks by hand and training them via backprop is good for very specific tasks. What it doesn't do very well, however, is act as a petri dish for a more universal kind of intelligence. Manually designing brains, after all, is ultimately limited by our understanding of the structures they consist of. So we as the designers are the bottleneck.


Artificial Intelligence Explained for My Grandpa

#artificialintelligence

My grandpa recently discovered that I've been writing medium articles. After reading a few that I wrote about AI, he sent me a text asking for me to write an article explaining it to "seniors" like him. This is my best attempt at that. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a phrase used by computer scientists to describe programs that can do things that require applying knowledge. But isn't any computer program'applying' the knowledge given to it in its own programming?


Deep Funding Supports Teams And Individuals To Develop And Utilize Decentralized AI

#artificialintelligence

In the first round alone, we will be offering $1,000,000 of funding in AGIX to AI services and projects that help us grow our decentralized AI platform. All awards are made in Dollar value at the time of disbursement. This will happen in small steps on the completion of each deliverable that is defined by the teams themselves in their milestone planning. This article on Deep Funding is targeted to all AI developers out there, with or without knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. With these financial facts laid out, let's focus on the true value of Deep Funding and introduce you to our decentralized AI platform!
