What is Narrow, General and Super Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

You might have also heard about narrow, general and super artificial intelligence, or about machine learning, deep learning, reinforced learning, supervised and unsupervised learning, neural networks, Bayesian networks and a whole lot of other confusing terms. But then it gives a more understandable definition of machines that mimics cognitive functions such as problem solving and learning. General AI, also known as human-level AI or strong AI, is the type of Artificial Intelligence that can understand and reason its environment as a human would. According to University of Oxford scholar and AI expert Nick Bostrom, when AI becomes much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills, we've achieved Artificial Super Intelligence.


TEO the ironing robot is here to steal the job you never wanted anyway

#artificialintelligence

This robot will ensure that your work trousers and shirts remain wrinkle-free. With that in mind, they've developed a humanoid robot called TEO that has mastered the art of ensuring your shirts and trousers are wrinkle-free -- courtesy of some smart image recognition algorithms. "To continue our work, we would like to teach the robot to perform other tasks, such as folding garments. For this, we are beginning to use deep reinforcement learning techniques, a recent field that combines traditional reinforcement learning with deep learning.


Wisconsinites can now (legally) get 20 pounds of cheese and beer delivered by robot

Mashable

If you live in the Badger State, you can now legally have your award-winning cheeses delivered to you 20 pounds at a time inside Starship Technologies' delivery bots. The only stipulation is that the bots weigh 80 pounds or less, and a human must be in position to take control of the machine in case the six-wheeled pods try to steal a customer's cheese and/or beer. Starship bots weigh 40 pounds on their own and can carry 20 pounds of supplies, about the equivalent of 20 bricks of Widmer's 10-year aged cheddar cheese. If three's a trend, then Starship delivery bots are now on a literal roll.


Factories Will Start Using Cheaper And Smarter Robots, Report Says

International Business Times

In a new report from Loup Ventures, the venture capital firm predicts that a smarter sub-series of robots could increasingly become a more popular option for manufacturers. Compared to the larger single-purpose robots that are commonly used in fields like automotive assembly, Loup argues that smarter robots, which the report calls co-bots, will be used by more factories over time. Loup estimates that the market for these smarter types of robots could see fast adoption grow to $9.2 billion by 2025. Loup still expects traditional robots to maintain a larger market share of around $24 billion in the same 2025 window, adding to a total estimated market value of roughly $33 billion.


NASA Missions: AI Spacecraft Could One Day Run Missions Without Directions From Humans

International Business Times

Future space missions are going to reach the deepest part of the final frontier. Researchers currently conduct their work through the remotely controlled robotic spacecraft. But Chien and Wagstaff said autonomous craft are going to be key for future missions. Such autonomous systems are in the works for NASA's Mars rover scheduled for a 2020 launch.


Google Glass: Shock update hints at return from the dead

Virtual exploration could be the future of space science

Daily Mail

Scientists say humans in orbit could operate robotic systems down at the surface by relying on telepresence, enabling virtual exploration – and, some even say artificially intelligent probes could learn to carry out missions almost entirely on their own. By deploying astronauts to a planet's orbit, such as Mars, humans could control the instruments down below in real-time. And, this would allow them to essentially use a'robotic surrogate' – meaning the researchers could experience the surface environment virtually Curiosity is normally piloted remotely by humans, but signals can take up to 24 minutes to get from Earth to Mars. And, this would allow them to essentially use a'robotic surrogate' – meaning the researchers could experience the surface environment virtually, through the eyes of the robot, and carry out investigations through this vessel.
