The Chatbot Therapist Will See You Now

#artificialintelligence

Created by a team of Stanford psychologists and AI experts, Woebot uses brief daily chat conversations, mood tracking, curated videos, and word games to help people manage mental health. Scientists who recently looked at text-chat as a supplement to videoconferencing therapy sessions observed that the texting option actually reduced interpersonal anxiety, allowing patients to more fully disclose and discuss issues shrouded in shame, guilt, and embarrassment. Yesterday, Darcy and a team of co-authors at Stanford published a peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, Mental Health that randomized 70 college students and asked them to engage with Woebot or a self-help e-book for two weeks. But using those results to claim it can significantly reduce depression may expose Woebot to legal liabilities that bots in supporting roles have managed to avoid.


Facebook's Just Revealed That Its Chatbots Can Negotiate as Well as Humans

#artificialintelligence

Over time, the bots learned to go beyond simply mimicking humans and instead became more unpredictable with their responses. To test the model's effectiveness, Facebook created scenarios with a hypothetical set of objects. Facebook used an "end-to-end" training model, which means the process could be altered to give the algorithm other goals similar to the one in the study. In an email, Dhruv Batra, a Facebook visiting researcher who worked on the project and also teaches computer science at the Georgia Institute of Technology, told Inc. that Facebook doesn't have any plans to implement the technology into its product yet.

Artificial intelligence (AI) may sound like science fiction, but it is real, and becoming increasingly important to companies in every sector. The field of artificial intelligence has produced a wide variety of "cognitive technologies" that simulate human reasoning and perceptual skills, giving businesses entirely new capabilities and enabling organizations to break prevailing tradeoffs between speed, cost, and quality. Some experts have called artificial intelligence "more important than anything since the industrial revolution." Throughout the course, participants will build a knowledge base on cognitive technologies to equip them to engage in discussions with colleagues, customers, and suppliers and help them shape cognitive technology strategy in their organization.

Symmetry Master evaluated they symmetry of each person's face and AntiAgeist estimated the difference between the chronological and perceived age. Once these parameters were determined, the fifth robot, called MADIS, compared each selfie to models and actors within their age and ethnic groups were are stored in a database. 'We are very pleased with the Ai's performance in achieving 100 percent accuracy in predicting the I'm a Singer competition's results,' Dr. Min Wanli, Alibaba Cloud's chief scientist for artificial intelligence, said in a statement following the show, according to the Wall Street Journal. '[The result] is very random and almost impossible to predict using human intelligence,' said Min Wanli, chief scientist for artificial intelligence at Alibaba Cloud.

A new speech recognition system can transcribe English or Mandarin about three times faster than humans can type on a smartphone, according to a recent study. SEE ALSO: Mark Zuckerberg's First Stop in China: Baidu Headquarters The study, a collaboration between Stanford University, Baidu and the University of Washington, also found that the system produced 20.4 percent fewer errors than people typing in English and 63.8 percent fewer than people working in Mandarin. "We're putting speech recognition up against people who are really good at this task," study co-author James Landay told Stanford News. The system produced 20.4 percent fewer errors than people typing in English and 63.8 percent fewer than people working in Mandarin.

Does the self-driving car protect its passengers at all costs with no regard for the lives of others, or should the car instead put its passengers in harm's way to avoid a higher number of casualties that could result from a collision with pedestrians or other motorists? So if there is just one passenger aboard a car, and the lives of 10 pedestrians are at stake, the survey participants were perfectly fine with a self-driving car "killing" its passenger to save many more lives in return. MIT Media Lab has developed a complimentary online "Moral Machine" game that allows you to walk through a number of scenarios of who lives and who dies when a self-driving vehicle has to make a tough call. With this all being said, we can't help but recall a rather poignant scene from the movie I, Robot, in which Detective Spooner (played by Will Smith) recalls a story of how a robot saved his life in a car crash.


Visual Doom AI Competition @ CIG 2016

#artificialintelligence

Even though more than 20 years have passed since Doom's release, the methods for developing AI bots have not improved significantly in newer FPS productions. The participants of the Visual Doom AI competition are supposed to submit a controller (C, Python, or Java) that plays Doom. Although the participants are allowed to use any technique to develop a controller, the design and efficiency of the Visual Doom AI environment allows and encourages participants to use machine learning methods such as reinforcement deep learning. Each game will be repeated 12 times for track 1 and 4 times for track 2, which involves three maps.

Classics (Collection 2)

Work in distributed artificial intelligence has until now addressed the issues of multiagent interaction only under the strict assumption of "agent benevolence," where each participant in an interaction freely aids all others. The approach taken in game theory, however, assumes "agent selfishness," where each participant acts solely to ensure its own wellbeing. This paper attempts to clarify the differences between these two approaches by developing a Model general enough to describe both of them, and by investigating the consequences of this model in some specific instances, such as the problems of coordination of actions among non-communicating agents and the prisoner's dilemma. In particular, the expanded model includes multi-agent interactions where the participants have distinct or conflicting goals. The mechanism presented ensures harmonious interactions without communication under many circumstances.
