AI WARNING: Robots will be SMARTER than humans by 2045, Google boss says

#artificialintelligence

Ray Kurzweil, Google's Director of Engineering, has maintained his view over the years that AI will reach human intelligence by 2029, but now the search engine expert has said machines will exceed humans intelligence 16 years following that. The point where robots become smarter than humans is known as the'singularity', and that is a little less than two decades away, say experts. The year 2045 will be where AI comes into its own and become the most intelligent species on the planet, according to Mr Kurzweil. He told Futurism: "2029 is the consistent date I have predicted for when an AI will pass a valid Turing test and therefore achieve human levels of intelligence.


Kurzweil Claims That the Singularity Will Happen by 2045

Ray Kurzweil, Google's Director of Engineering, is a well-known futurist with a high-hitting track record for accurate predictions. Of his 147 predictions since the 1990s, Kurzweil claims an 86 percent accuracy rate. At the SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas, Kurzweil made yet another prediction: the technological singularity will happen sometime in the next 30 years. I have set the date 2045 for the'Singularity' which is when we will multiply our effective intelligence a billion fold by merging with the intelligence we have created. "By 2029, computers will have human-level intelligence," Kurzweil said in an interview with SXSW.


Ray Kurzweil says machines won't take over our jobs

Speaking to Fortune, the famed "future teller" dismissed most people's worries about automation. "I would say, 'Well, don't worry, for every job we eliminate, we're going to create more jobs at the top of the skill ladder.'" Kurzweil added that when people ask what these new jobs would be, he'd say, "Well, I don't know. Kurzweil also gave his two-cents on the matter of AI's potential dangers, and as the top guy behind Google's AI and machine learning efforts, he is considered an expert on the subject.

Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence lays the foundation for understanding the future of humanity and intelligent life. In his book, Bostrom mentions if machine brains surpassed human minds, then this new superintelligence can be extremely powerful. After two and a half years in the making, Deep Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series) was released in late 2016 and has quickly become a groundbreaking resource on the subject of deep learning. He describes the rise and development of intelligent machines through the process of reverse engineering the human brain.


Futurist Ray Kurzweil Isn't Worried About Technology Stealing Your Job

In this case, Musk says he fears artificial intelligence will lead to World War III because nations will compete for A.I. Have you tried to build models for predicting politics or world events? Things that happened in the 20th century like World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and the Great Depression had no effect on these very smooth trajectories for technology. We have already eliminated all jobs several times in human history.

The scope of Artificial Intelligence is much broader, including technologies like Virtual Agents, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning Platforms and many other. The main focus in GE is on making machines smarter, leveraging machine learning to create "digital twins" – a digital replica, or data-based representation of an industrial machine. Unfortunately, SalesForce's Connected Small Business Report notes that only 21% of small businesses are currently using business intelligence and analytics. World's top technology leaders Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk are on the sceptical side of this debate, while Microsoft, Apple, Google and many others are already eagerly taking advantage of the AI technology.


What Is Ray Kurzweil Up to at Google? Writing Your Emails

The company already employed some of the most influential thinkers in machine learning and AI, and was rapidly expanding its roster of engineers building machine learning systems to power new products. Although their code powers it today, Kurzweil's group didn't invent Smart Reply. It was first built by engineers and researchers from the Gmail product team and the Google Brain AI research lab. But you could describe any machine learning system built with artificial neural networks that way, and none made yet is really very brain-like.

Nanobots could turn us into GODS by linking our brains to the internet

He added that it may be possible in the future to use the extra brain power provided by the cloud to multiply human intelligence. Other leading scientists and technology experts have expressed fears at the growing use of Artificial Intelligence and called for tighter controls to be placed on its development. He said: In the 2030s, we will be able to send nanobots into living people's brains and extract memories of people who have passed away. Professor Stuart Russell, a computer scientist who has lead research on artificial intelligence, fears humanity might be'driving off a cliff' with the rapid development of AI.
