Artificial Intelligence System


Is AI a dude or a dudette?

@machinelearnbot

Sure, Facebook has "M", Google has "Google Now", and Siri's voice isn't always that of a woman. But it does feel worth noting that (typically male-dominated) engineering groups routinely give women's names to the things you issue commands to. Is artificial intelligence work about Adams making Eves? The response to this critique is usually about the voices people trust and find easy to understand. Adrienne LaFrance over at The Atlantic does a good job discussing those points, so go read her article.


The turtle that Google's AI thought was a gun – and the intelligence of AI in cyber security Access AI

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this week, a story surfaced about Google's artificial intelligence (AI) being duped. Researchers identified that by understanding the patterns and ways that an AI system can classify images, they could 3D print a turtle that was identified by Google's systems as a rifle from every angle. It's a funny story (and I haven't even mentioned the baseball classed as an espresso or cat categorised as guacamole), but one that serves to prove a wider point regarding the fragility of AI systems and the extent to which they can actually be deemed'intelligent'. Why isn't artificial intelligence more…intelligent? I've had back and forth arguments about the definition of AI with more than one person, and quite often it comes down to what definition you are actually using.


Artificial intelligence system can turn low-resolution images into HD versions

#artificialintelligence

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can create a high- definition version of a low resolution image. Technology to create a large-sized image from a low- resolution image is known as single-image super-resolution (SISR) technology. SISR has been studied for decades, but with limited results. Software adds extra pixels and averages them with the surrounding pixels, but the result is blurriness. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Intelligent Systems in Germany proposed a new approach to give images a realistic texture when magnified from small to large using machine learning.

Does Regulating Artificial Intelligence Save Humanity Or Just Stifle Innovation?

Some people are afraid that heavily armed artificially intelligent robots might take over the world, enslaving humanity – or perhaps exterminating us. These people, including tech-industry billionaire Elon Musk and eminent physicist Stephen Hawking, say artificial intelligence technology needs to be regulated to manage the risks. But Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg disagree, saying the technology is not nearly advanced enough for those worries to be realistic. As someone who researches how AI works in robotic decision-making, drones and self-driving vehicles, I've seen how beneficial it can be. I've developed AI software that lets robots working in teams make individual decisions, as part of collective efforts to explore and solve problems.

Artificial intelligence system can now predict earthquakes and save lives

#artificialintelligence

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system to successfully predict earthquakes, an advance that may help prepare for natural disasters and potentially save lives. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Review Letters, identified a hidden signal leading up to earthquakes, and used this'fingerprint' to train a machine learning algorithm to predict future earthquakes.

How Artificial Intelligence Will Change Decision-Making For Businesses

#artificialintelligence

From The Terminator to Blade Runner, pop culture has always leaned towards a chilling depiction of artificial intelligence (AI) and our future with AI at the helm. Recent headlines about Facebook panicking because their AI bots developed a language of their own have us hitting the alarm button once again. Should we really feel unsettled with an AI future? News flash: that future is here. If you ask Siri, the helpful assistant who magically lives inside your phone, to read text messages and emails to you, find the nearest pizza place or call your mother for you, then you've made AI a part of your everyday life.
