Apple and Google's contact tracing finally released - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

Apple Inc. and Google released the first versions of their Covid-19 contact-tracing tools to public health organizations on Wednesday so the agencies can start building applications ahead of the system's launch in mid-May. The toolset is a combination of software updates for iOS and Android, and software development kits to help developers build and test their apps. Apple released an early beta version of its software update that incorporates the technology, iOS 13.5, while Google is rolling out an update via its Google Play app store. The first phase of the system will let health agencies build apps that allow a person who tests positive for Covid-19 to input their diagnosis. The system will then use Bluetooth technology to learn who the person has come into contact with and then notify those people of possible exposure.

Robot gorilla 'spy' captures the first footage of Silverbacks in Uganda singing for their supper

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A pack of Silverback Mountain gorillas in Uganda were caught for the first time on camera performing a supper serenade. Filmmakers captured the unique ritual by placing a robotic'spy' that resembles a young gorilla deep in the jungle. The team designed the animatronic machine with realistic eye movements, as wild gorillas communicate with each other through eye contact, and a submissive demeanor with the hopes it would be accepted by the pack. Along with the singing, the footage shows the gorillas screamed a'chorus of appreciation' while eating and provided evidence that they are extremely gassy.

Artificial Intelligence, or'AI' is the buzzword of the year. What does AI mean to us Independent Workers? Are we going to be replaced by an algorithm? I've been a computer programmer for almost fifty years now and all through my career I was told that a computer was going to replace me. No, it was a computer, I remember.


AlphaGo - The Movie Full Documentary

#artificialintelligence

With more board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, the ancient Chinese game of Go has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9, 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined The DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history. Directed by Greg Kohs with an original score by Academy Award nominee, Hauschka, AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the halls of Oxford, through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of DeepMind in London, and ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game?

Very simple statistical evidence that AlphaGo has exceeded human limits in playing GO game

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Deep learning technology is making great progress in solving the challenging problems of artificial intelligence, hence machine learning based on artificial neural networks is in the spotlight again. In some areas, artificial intelligence based on deep learning is beyond human capabilities. It seemed extremely difficult for a machine to beat a human in a Go game, but AlphaGo has shown to beat a professional player in the game. By looking at the statistical distribution of the distance in which the Go stones are laid in succession, we find a clear trace that Alphago has surpassed human abilities. The AlphaGo than professional players and professional players than ordinary players shows the laying of stones in the distance becomes more frequent. In addition, AlphaGo shows a much more pronounced difference than that of ordinary players and professional players.


A.I. and Multiple Intelligences

#artificialintelligence

How do we define "Intelligence"? One definition is to say intelligence is the ability to think in abstract terms. This is what separates us from animals. Polar bears, walruses, otters and other mammals have a marvellous ability to survive in their habitat. However, "intelligent" isn't a word that leaps to mind when we describe them.


Diverse Randomized Agents Vote to Win

Neural Information Processing Systems

We investigate the power of voting among diverse, randomized software agents. With teams of computer Go agents in mind, we develop a novel theoretical model of two-stage noisy voting that builds on recent work in machine learning. This model allows us to reason about a collection of agents with different biases (determined by the first-stage noise models), which, furthermore, apply randomized algorithms to evaluate alternatives and produce votes (captured by the second-stage noise models). We analytically demonstrate that a uniform team, consisting of multiple instances of any single agent, must make a significant number of mistakes, whereas a diverse team converges to perfection as the number of agents grows. Our experiments, which pit teams of computer Go agents against strong agents, provide evidence for the effectiveness of voting when agents are diverse.


Boston Dynamics robot dog goes on patrol at Norwegian oil rig

#artificialintelligence

Meet Spot, the first robot to get its own employee number at Norwegian oil producer Aker BP. Developed by Boston Dynamics, the robot is set to start patrolling Aker BP's oil and gas production vessel at the Skarv field in the Norwegian Sea this year, testing its ability to run inspections, detect hydrocarbon leaks, gather data and generate reports. The upshot for Aker BP, which is seeking to be a front-runner in the digitalization of the oil industry, is to make offshore operations safer and more efficient, the company said as it presented the robot at its capital markets day in Oslo on Tuesday. Aker BP will run the tests with Cognite, the software venture controlled by the oil company's main owner, Aker ASA. "These things never get tired, they have a larger ability to adapt and to gather data," Kjetel Digre, Aker BP's senior vice president for operations, said in an interview.
