We can re-use statistics to make artificial intelligence! There was only one little problem and it was that machine learning was very slow as all those techniques had to go through data multiple times, iterating, multiply big matrixes, etc. As the graphic cards are good at matrix multiplications that well fitted neural networks, usually very expensive but at the same time very powerful. The first one is composed by the easily impressionable ones (easy prey of the snake oil sellers) and the second one is represented by the ones that have no clue of what they are buying (easy to prey but not to keep).

4 fears an AI developer has about artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

I create virtual environments and evolve digital creatures and their brains to solve increasingly complex tasks. Even my own job could be done faster, by a large number of machines tirelessly researching how to make even smarter machines. There is one last fear, embodied by HAL 9000, the Terminator and any number of other fictional superintelligences: If AI keeps improving until it surpasses human intelligence, will a superintelligence system (or more than one of them) find it no longer needs humans? This first appeared on The Conversation -- What an artificial intelligence researcher fears about AI.


Why The Future Of Artificial Intelligence Should Be Scared Of AI

I create virtual environments and evolve digital creatures and their brains to solve increasingly complex tasks. We could set up our virtual environments to give evolutionary advantages to machines that demonstrate kindness, honesty and empathy. Even my own job could be done faster, by a large number of machines tirelessly researching how to make even smarter machines.
