Neuralink; Elon Musk's newest venture enters the world of AI -- AI Daily - Artificial Intelligence News

#artificialintelligence

Neuralink, which was founded in 2016, is Musk's neural technology company that's developing an implant designed to interface directly with the human brain. The initial goal of the implant, says Musk, is to use it as a way to treat brain injury and trauma. "There's still plenty of labour to try and do," Musk said when speaking with Joe Rogan in his show The Joe Rogan Experience. "So after I say, you know, we've probably got a trial at putting it into a person, you know, within a year. I think that's exactly what I mean, I believe we've got an opportunity of putting input in one end, having them be healthy, and restoring some functionality that they've lost."


12 inventions (from the wheel to artificial intelligence) that have changed humanity - Checkersaga

#artificialintelligence

We are an amalgam of genes, knowledge, culture and religion, which have influenced our lineage for thousands, tens of thousands of years. One thing is linked to the other, and the history of humanity could not be explained without physical evolution, religion, politics, or science. We are different from our ancestors who lived in the 19th century, or in Prehistory, because we have evolved in different ways. But, What is causing the great changes in humanity? A conquering king, a pandemic, a new religion can change the destiny of hundreds of millions of people. But, objectively, the most important evolutionary changes have come from the hand of technology.

When it comes to artificial intelligence, and technology in general, we as a society are often guilty of thinking of it as separate from humanity. However, AI and humanity are of course intricately entwined, as AI is built by humans. Just as the saying goes, "no man is an island," the same can be said of what we build. Artificial intelligence (AI) has now permeated all sectors of business - and for good reason. Across multiple industries, difficult or expensive tasks can be automated by AI/ML and, as a result, catapult even failing businesses into success.

A beginner's guide to the AI apocalypse: Humanity joins the hivemind

#artificialintelligence

Welcome to the latest article in TNW's guide to the AI apocalypse. In this series we'll examine some of the most popular doomsday scenarios prognosticated by modern AI experts. It's pretty easy to think up new ways for robots to destroy us. But what if AI doesn't want us dead? Maybe our future overlords will see our weaknesses and, in their infinite benevolence, choose to upgrade us.


AI: The Folklore of Artificial Intelligence - #FolkloreThursday

#artificialintelligence

Myths, as most readers will know, are stories that explain natural occurrences and express beliefs of right and wrong, while legends are, in the context of this article, popular myths of more recent origin. Myths and legends apply as much to contemporary science as to ancient historical phenomenon. The myths and legends of AI, which examined in this article, will illustrate exemplify that statement. Artificial Intelligence ("AI") is the engineering science of making intelligent machines and software imitate human behaviour and intelligence. The alleged impact of AI has focussed on the behaviour of humans in a world where AI moves centre stage in discharging roles and tasks, which humans have performed historically. Popular publications are the source of many myths and legends which have grown-up around AI Novels from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, through Samuel Butler's Erewhon to the novel of Brian Aldiss all feature creations which might replace the human being as the dominant specie.


Op-Ed: The real reason we're afraid of robots

It helps drive your car, recognizes your face at the airport's immigration checkpoint, interprets your CT scans, reads your resume, traces your interactions on social media, and even vacuums your carpet. As AI encroaches on every aspect of our lives, people watch with a mixture of fascination, bewilderment and fear. AI's overthrow of humanity is a familiar trope in popular culture, from Isaac Asimov's "I, Robot" to the "Terminator" movies and "The Matrix." Some scholars express similar concerns. The Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom worries that artificial intelligence poses a greater threat to humanity than climate change, and the bestselling historian Yuval Noah Harari warns that the history of tomorrow may belong to the cult of Dataism, in which humanity willingly merges itself into the flow of information controlled by artificial systems.


GPT-3: The First Artificial General Intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

If you had asked me a year or two ago when Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) would be invented, I'd have told you that we were a long way off. Most experts were saying that AGI was decades away, and some were saying it might not happen at all. The consensus is -- was? -- that all the recent progress in AI concerns so-called "narrow AI," meaning systems that can only perform one specific task. An AGI, or a "strong AI," which could perform any task as well as a human being, is a much harder problem. It is so hard that there isn't a clear roadmap for achieving it, and few researchers are openly working on the topic. GPT-3 is the first model to shake that status-quo seriously. GPT-3 is the latest language model from the OpenAI team.


Bringing Humanity To Customer Care Communications

#artificialintelligence

Here at B Squared Media, we are known for bringing humanity to customer care communications. That's because our focus is on driving conversation. Nothing has brought more light to the need for humanity in customer care than the COVID-19 pandemic. With delayed shipping times, limited stock, and longer on-hold wait times, customers are more eager than ever for answers. Factor in high tensions due to virus fears, social issues, and lockdown – long story short, it's never been more important to respond the right way.


Tech Tent: Have we seen our AI future?

#artificialintelligence

It could be evidence that artificial intelligence has made a great leap forward and human writers and software developers will soon be redundant. Or maybe it is just the latest example of the hype getting way ahead of the reality? On this week's Tech Tent we find out what the big fuss is about something called GPT-3. OpenAI is a Californian company started in 2015 with a high-minded mission - to ensure that artificial general intelligence systems that could outperform humans in most jobs would benefit all humanity. It was founded as a non-profit with generous donations from Elon Musk among others but was quickly transformed into a for-profit business, with Microsoft investing $1bn.
