#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a cutting-edge technology that enables robots to learn from their own experience. AI can be found in self-driving cars, smart homes, and chess computers, to name a few. They are based on deep learning and are equipped with artificial intelligence. Computers can execute complex tasks using these technologies. As a result, businesses are recognized for their enthusiasm for AI to obtain a competitive advantage over their competitors.


One giant leap for the mini cheetah

Robohub

MIT researchers have developed a system that improves the speed and agility of legged robots as they jump across gaps in the terrain. The movement may look effortless, but getting a robot to move this way is an altogether different prospect. In recent years, four-legged robots inspired by the movement of cheetahs and other animals have made great leaps forward, yet they still lag behind their mammalian counterparts when it comes to traveling across a landscape with rapid elevation changes. "In those settings, you need to use vision in order to avoid failure. For example, stepping in a gap is difficult to avoid if you can't see it. Although there are some existing methods for incorporating vision into legged locomotion, most of them aren't really suitable for use with emerging agile robotic systems," says Gabriel Margolis, a PhD student in the lab of Pulkit Agrawal, professor in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT.


Senior al-Qaida leader killed in U.S. drone strike in Syria

The Japan Times

Washington – A senior al-Qaida leader was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Syria, the Pentagon said Friday. The strike comes two days after a base in southern Syria, used by the U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group, was assaulted. "A U.S. airstrike today in northwest Syria killed senior al-Qaida leader Abdul Hamid al-Matar," said Central Command spokesman Maj. There were no known casualties from the strike, he said, adding it was conducted using an MQ-9 aircraft. "The removal of this al-Qaida senior leader will disrupt the terrorist organization's ability to further plot and carry out global attacks," he said.


US says it killed al-Qaeda leader in Syria with drone strike

Al Jazeera

The US military has killed senior al Qaeda leader Abdul Hamid al-Matar in a drone strike in Syria, a US Central Command spokesman said. "The removal of this al Qaeda senior leader will disrupt the terrorist organisation's ability to further plot and carry out global attacks threatening US citizens, our partners, and innocent civilians," US Army Major John Rigsbee said in a written statement late on Friday. The strike comes two days after a US outpost in southern Syria was attacked. Rigsbee did not say if the US drone strike was carried out in retaliation of the attack.


Anthropomorphism in AI

#artificialintelligence

AI research is growing rapidly raising various ethical issues related to safety, risks, and other effects widely discussed in the literature. We believe that in order to adequately address those issues and engage in a productive normative discussion it is necessary to examine key concepts and categories. One such category is anthropomorphism. It is a well-known fact that AI's functionalities and innovations are often anthropomorphized (i.e., described and conceived as characterized by human traits). The general public's anthropomorphic attitudes and some of their ethical consequences (particularly in the context of social robots and their interaction with humans) have been widely discussed in the literature. However, how anthropomorphism permeates AI research itself (i.e., in the very language of computer scientists, designers, and programmers), and what the epistemological and ethical consequences of this might be have received less attention.

Supercharged: Tesla shares rally to a record high

Al Jazeera

Tesla Inc. shares rallied to a record high on Friday, taking the electric-vehicle maker another step closer to joining an elite group of companies with market valuations of at least $1 trillion. The stock jumped as much as 1.8% to touch a high of $910, before closing at $909.68 in New York. That drove the Elon Musk-led automaker to briefly overtake the valuation of Facebook Inc. The trailblazing electric-vehicle maker is up 29% this year, ahead of S&P 500 Index's 21% advance. Meanwhile, Facebook took a heavy hit on Friday after a cautious outlook from Snapchat parent Snap Inc. weighed on the shares of ad-dependent technology companies.

#artificialintelligence

Right now, there is a whole body of researchers debating the extent to which artificial general intelligence could mimic the human brain. Digital life continues to augment human capacities and disrupt eons-old human activities. Are we witnessing the new world order already? There are examples of AI everywhere we look. However, Artificial General Intelligence is still in its primary stages.


The Anger of Tesla Fans Is Becoming a Problem

Slate

This week, the Biden administration confirmed a Reuters report that it plans to appoint Missy Cummings, an engineering professor at Duke University and a former fighter pilot, as the senior adviser for safety at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The head of Duke's Humans and Autonomy Lab, Cummings is an expert in human factors, a field examining interactions between people and machines. That's an important skill set for the development of advanced driver-assistance systems, or ADAS, emerging automotive technologies that rely on safe handoffs between car and driver on the roadway. It's the crucial bridge between the mostly dumb vehicles we drive today and self-driving cars. Cummings has studied ADAS for years, and she has been a vocal critic of Tesla's deployment of its Autopilot feature, which enables a vehicle to moderate speed, make turns, and respond to traffic signals on its own (though, contra the feature's name, the driver must remain vigilant and ready to intervene).
