Stuart Russell warns about the dangers involved in the creation of artificial intelligence. Particularly, artificial general intelligence or AGI. The idea of an artificial intelligence that might one day surpass human intelligence has been captivating and terrifying us for decades now. The possibility of what it would be like if we had the ability to create a machine that could think like a human, or even surpass us in cognitive abilities is something that many envision. But, as with many novel technologies, there are a few problems with building an AGI. But what if we succeed? What would happen should our quest to create artificial intelligence bear fruit? How do we retain power over entities that are more intelligent than us? The answer, of course, is that nobody knows for sure. But there are some logical conclusions we can draw from examining the nature of intelligence and what kind of entities might be capable of it. Stuart Russell is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley, holder of the Smith-Zadeh Chair in Engineering, and Director of the Center for Human-Compatible AI. He outlines the definition of AI, the risks and benefits it poses for the future. According to him, the idea of an AGI is the most important problem to intellectually to work on. An AGI could be used for many good and evil purposes. Although there are huge benefits to creating an AGI, there are also downsides to doing so. If we create and [More]
Can Computers Think? | Alan Turing and the Birth of Artificial Intelligence Alan Turing was a pioneering mathematician widely considered to be the father of modern computers. His revolutionary idea was to create a machine that would turn thought processes into numbers. It took a decade for technology to advance to the point where a machine could be built to test his ideas – and it worked. Today all the digital computers that we use work on this same principle. Turing believed that an intelligent machine could be created by following the blueprints of the human brain. His landmark paper of 1950 described the Turing Test for determining an intelligent machine. The test consisted of a person asking questions via a keyboard to both another person and an intelligent machine. The machine would read a series of ones and zeros from a tape which described the steps needed to solve a problem or task.   If the computer’s answers could not be distinguished from those of the person after a reasonable amount of time then the machine has some intelligence, according to the Turing Test. Turing was the first to ask the question, “Can computers think?”. In 1951, BBC broadcasted a short lecture on the radio by the mathematician. Unfortunately, we don’t have any recordings of Alan Turing today. But we can glimpse into his mind through the original script of this lost broadcast. ⏱️ TIMESTAMPS 00:00 – Who is Alan Turing? 01:13 – The Turing Test 01:44 – Can Computers [More]
There is “WISDOM BOX”, a wise artificial intelligence (AI), that will help people become wise enough to make much better decisions on their own. The picture of “WISDOM BOX” is a graphic design of the container that is formed in a perfect hexagon through the six stars that come from the heavens—it is a perfect hexagon on all sides. (Please reference the following link in order to access the “WISDOM BOX” Birth Story: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006V9WIP4)
Information and subscription on http://www.usievents.com Alan Turing (1912-1954) is well known for many things, most notably his work in breaking German codes during World War 2. After the war he was closely involved in the development of Britain’s first programmable electronic computers, and laid important foundations for research into artificial intelligence. Sir Dermot Turing reviews the life of Alan Turing and his contribution to AI. From this perspective, he examines whether AI has moved on since 1949, when the question whether ‘machines can think’ first came to the public consciousness, and whether the fears and threats to society which were first discussed 70 years ago remain valid today.
