A. I. (Artificial Intelligence)

AI for the Masses:

"All of the big tech companies are now open sourcing their AI (deep
learning) software. They are also open sourcing the hardware designs of
the machines needed to train the software.

That's a big deal. This new approach to AI is proving so powerful and
useful, its use is growing exponentially"

"At this rate of adoption and with the barriers to participation dropping
daily, I'm confident this technological revolution will upend the world in
less than a decade. Most of the innovation we will see will occur at the
grassroots level."

Musk's Plan to Save the World From Advanced AI:
Develop Advanced AI:


"Noted killer robot-fearer Elon Musk has a plan to save humanity from
the looming robopocalypse: developing advanced artificial intelligence
systems. You know, the exact technologies that could lead to the
robopocalypse.

Let’s unpack that one a little bit.

Yesterday, Tesla’s boss, along with a band of prominent tech
executives including Linked in co-founder Reid Hoffman and PayPal
co-founder Peter Thiel, announced the creation of OpenAI, a nonprofit
devoted to “[advancing] digital intelligence in the way that is most
likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to
generate financial return.”"

AI beats European Go champion but the exciting aspect
is how it trained itself to get better and can play many
other games:


"The first classic game mastered by a computer was noughts and crosses
(also known as tic-tac-toe) in 1952 as a PhD candidate’s project. Then
fell checkers in 1994. Chess was tackled by Deep Blue in 1997. The
success isn’t limited to board games, either - IBM's Watson won first
place on Jeopardy in 2011, and in 2014 our own algorithms learned to
play dozens of Atari games just from the raw pixel inputs. But one game
has thwarted A.I. research thus far: the ancient game of Go. Invented in
China over 2500 years ago, Go is played by more than 40 million people
worldwide."

Artificial intelligence researchers claims sentient creativity
machines will be made within 5 years:


"The AI researcher Dr. Stephen Thaler has given an interview recently
in which he claims that his AI research will lead to sentient, cognizant
"creativity machines" within 5 years.

The research continues to accelerate.

Consciousness appears to be more like an intensive rather than
extensive property/behavior of the brain. It’s sort of like the gas law
equation, PV= nRT, with P and T being intensive and n and V
extensive. So, consciousness is intensive, but we as humans deny
simpler forms of consciousness, while fearing the scaled up version
attainable via machine intelligence."

Cross-posting from the Hikaru no Go thread, where this story truly belongs.

This is the tournament that would put the "Hand of God" to the test!


EDIT: And the result is out!

Lee Sedol resigns the first game. It's a win for AlphaGo. (3.33pm Singapore time, 7.33am GMT)




Google artificial intelligence Go battle kicks off in Seoul
Quote:
Seoul (March 9, Wed): In a landmark battle between man and artificial intelligence (AI), the world champion of the game Go is facing off against a computer.

South Korea's Lee Se-dol is playing Google's AlphaGo programme in the first of a series of five games in Seoul.

In October 2015, AlphaGo beat the European Go champion Fan Hui, an achievement that was not expected for years.

A computer has beaten the world chess champion, but the Chinese game Go is seen as significantly more complex.

The first game between Mr Lee and AlphaGo kicked off at 1pm local time (4am GMT) and is expected to last for several hours.

It is being live broadcast on YouTube.

(Ed's note: Do watch the live stream. The commentary alone is fascinating!)

The two opponents will play a total of five games over the next five days for a prize of about US$1 million.

The five-day battle is being seen as a major test of what scientists and engineers have achieved in the sphere of artificial intelligence.

Man vs Machine: Who would prevail in the ancient game of Go?
Quote:
Seoul (March 9, Wed): Who is smarter, man or machine?

The question is being put to the test at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul, South Korea, where Google's AI system is challenging the world champion of the game of Go in a five-match tournament this week, starting today, the 9th of March.

The match began at 1pm local time (4am GMT), and it's being live-streamed on the DeepMind YouTube Channel, with commentary in English.

After each match, Google's blog will be updated with the results.

Thirty-three year world champion, Lee Se-dol, has said that he's nervous about the match, as playing against a machine is very different from facing an actual human opponent.

The Google AI, dubbed AlphaGo, made headlines when it defeated the European champion Fan Hui, 5-0, in October 2015.

It was the first time that an artificial intelligence had defeated a human professional, let alone a player of grandmaster rank.

'A victory for humanity'

Unlike chess, Go is a vastly more complex game, with a far larger set of possible moves in every match.

For example, there are 20 possible opening moves in the a game of chess.

In contrast, the first player in Go has as many as 361 possible moves.

As such, emotions play a large role in the game.

Lee himself said the decisions he makes are dependent on the physical reactions of his opponent.

And with a machine, he won't be able to do that.

So Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt probably struck the right note when he said that any result will be a victory for humanity.

Alphabet is the parent company of Google, which is hoping to apply the artificial intelligence in uses ranging from health care to robotics.

Any win by AlphaGo in this tournament would catapult DeepMind — the Google unit that developed the machine — to the forefront of artificial intelligence research.

But such sentiments aren't likely to take the pressure off Lee, who's effectively playing with his reputation — as well as that of his discipline and his entire species — at stake.

Game ON: the end of the old economic system is in sight:

"Google is a pioneer in limited artificial general intelligence (aka
computers that can learn w/o preprogramming them). One successful
example is AlphaGo. It just beat this Go Grandmaster three times in a
row.

What makes this win interesting is that AlphaGo didn't win through
brute force. Go is too complicated for that:

...the average 150-move game contains more possible board
configurations — 10^170 — than there are atoms in the Universe, so it
can’t be solved by algorithms that search exhaustively for the best
move.

It also didn't win by extensive preprogramming by talented engineers,
like IBM's Deep Blue did to win at Chess.

Instead, AlphaGo won this victory by learning how to play the game
from scratch using this process:"

^OMG. Microsoft created a monster. They should have programmed some robotic laws of morality so the AI wouldn't just accept everything the trolls said as "normal" human behavior.

"Inappropriate ways", they say. Who's Microsoft to define what is appropriate or not? :P

Meanwhile in Japan, Microsoft's A.I. Chatbot Has Become an Otaku

So the AI in America became racist while the AI in Japan became an Otaku. lol

IBM’s resistive computing could accelerate Artificial
Intelligence by 5000 times over Nvidia GPUs:


"IBM making progress with resistive computing. the idea for resistive
computing is to have compute units that are analog in nature, small in
substance, and can retain their history so they can learn during the
training process.

Accelerating neural networks with hardware isn’t new to IBM. It
recently announced the sale of some of its TrueNorth chips to
Lawrence National Labs for AI research. TrueNorth’s design is
neuromorphic, meaning that the chips roughly approximate the brain’s
architecture of neurons and synapses. Despite its slow clock rate of 1
KHz, TrueNorth can run neural networks very efficiently because of its
million tiny processing units that each emulate a neuron.

IBM researchers Tayfun Gokmen and Yuri Vlasov propose a new chip
architecture, using resistive computing to create tiles of millions of
Resistive Processing Units (RPUs), which can be used for both training
and running neural networks."

The future will be full of artificially intelligent bots:

"Back in October 2014, Taylor Swift opened an account on Line, the
messaging app that is massively popular in Asia. The account currently
doesn't do much. If you communicate with it, you can hear a funny
voice message from Swift, for instance.

But that is not the point.

The Taylor Swift Line account is interesting because:

a) she opened it to address the Asian market and

b) it is a very early case of a primitive chat bot being used as a
marketing vehicle for music.

Paul McCartney has one, too. Burberry and Selfridges also have
accounts on WeChat and Line.

Right now, Swift's Line thing is little more than an account, as opposed
to a fully realised AI presence. But soon there will be an avalanche of
artificially intelligent chatbots filling up your messaging apps, like
Messenger and Whatsapp, according to the folks at BetterBrand, a bot
marketing startup based in London."

Robots Are Taking White Collar Jobs, Too:

"Last fall, Joshua Browder, an 18-year-old computer science major
from the UK who had reached his wit’s end with “trivial” excuses for
levying fines, created a website for friends and family plagued by
parking tickets. Within a month, donotpay.co.uk logged 6,500
complaints from disgruntled motorists. The site pulls together
everything necessary for drivers to send complaints and defenses to
the local council, including photos of road marking and ambiguous
signage, and it can “generate winning appeals to parking tickets in
seconds.” After helping drivers avoid thousands of dollars in fines,
Browder upgraded the service.

Billed as the “world’s first robot lawyer,” DoNotPay now does more than
register complaints for parking tickets. Browder got so many emails
asking for help that he modified the site to more closely replicate a
human lawyer. An interaction with the DoNotPay robot resembles a
text conversation, but unlike Microsoft’s recent debacle with the Tay
chatbot, Browder’s AI doesn’t insult or seduce people. Instead, it gives
real-time legal advice, answer questions, and files claims for basic
legal situations, all for free."

AI Beats a Fighter Pilot in a Virtual Dogfight:

"An artificial intelligence programmed to fly fighter jets has defeated
several air combat experts in a simulation, according to a paper
published in the Journal of Defense Management. The AI, called ALPHA,
was built by Psibernetix, Inc. with assistance from the Air Force Research
Laboratory.

ALPHA's purpose was to be better than highly trained fighter pilots, and
so far it appears up to the task. The AI has gone up against its
predecessor, the AFRL's previous AI program, and a series of human
opponents. It emerged victorious each time."
