AI is targeting some of the world's biggest problems: homelessness, terrorism, and extinction


"[These projects] bring up completely new kinds of AI problems because working with low resource communities, data is sparse, as opposed to being plentiful. The USC Center for AI in Society is a collaboration between computer science and social science schools at USC, an ambitious initiative created to cross-pollinate ideas between the two disciplines in order to solve some of the world's biggest problems. Created in 2013, the program focuses on problems found in the 12 Grand Challenges of social work and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. So we're really collaborating across schools in terms of engineering and AI and social work, and it's bringing up completely new sets of challenges to the core in terms of problems that the AI community has tackled," Tambe told VentureBeat in a phone interview.

The disease, Niemann-Pick type C (NPC), causes cholesterol build up in the neurons, leading to enlarged organs, lung damage, muscle stiffness, seizures, dementia and difficulty speaking. The test, which is called the NPC Neurological Severity Score, helps assess eye movement, gait, speech, swallowing, fine motor skills, cognition, hearing, memory and presence and severity of seizures. The historical data showed patients' scores increased - meaning the disease worsened - an average of 2.9 points per year. The progressive, fatal condition, officially known as Niemann-Pick disease type C, causes enlarged organs, lung damage, muscle stiffness, dementia and difficulty speaking.

Google develops computer program capable of learning tasks independently


The agent uses a method called "deep learning" to turn the basic visual input into meaningful concepts, mirroring the way the human brain takes raw sensory information and transforms it into a rich understanding of the world. The agent is programmed to work out what is meaningful through "reinforcement learning", the basic notion that scoring points is good and losing them is bad. In videos provided by Deep Mind, the agent is shown making random and largely unsuccessful movements at the start, but after 600 hundred rounds of training (two weeks of computer time) it has figured out what many of the games are about. Hassabis stops short of calling this a "creative step", but said it proves computers can "figure things out for themselves" in a way that is normally thought of as uniquely human.
