Machines, four. Humanity, one. That was the result of the match between Google’s AlphaGo and human champion Lee Sedol at the fiendishly complex game of Go, and it came with a disconcerting question: what next? Where will the machines claim their next victory: putting you out of a job; solving the mysteries of science; bettering human abilities in the bedroom? AlphaGo’s success was down to artificial intelligence (AI): the computer program taught itself how to improve its game by playing millions of matches against itself. But the trouble with using games such as chess and Go as measures of technological progress is that they are competitions. There’s a winner and there’s a loser – and this month’s biggest tech news story had a clear victor. This is a common narrative of human-machine interactions: a creation is pitted against its creators, aspiring ultimately to supplant them. Science fiction is full of robots-usurping-humans stories, sometimes … [Read more...] about How much should we fear the rise of artificial intelligence?
A leading expert on artificial intelligence has called for all algorithms that make life-changing decisions from job applications to immigration into the UK to be halted immediately. Prof Noel Sharkey, who is also a leading figure in a global campaign against “killer robots”, has warned that algorithms are so “infected with biases” that their decision-making processes can neither be fair nor trusted. A moratorium must be imposed on all “life-changing decision-making algorithms” in Britain, he said. Sharkey has suggested testing AI decision-making machines in the same way new pharmaceutical drugs are vigorously checked before they are legally allowed on to the medical market. In an interview with the Guardian, the Sheffield University robotics/AI pioneer said he was deeply concerned over a series of examples of machine-learning systems being loaded with bias. On in-built bias in algorithms, Sharkey said: “There are so many biases happening now … [Read more...] about AI expert calls for end to UK use of ‘racially biased’ algorithms
Voters were stuck in the biggest queues seen at polling stations for years today as millions took part in Britain's most important election for a generation with their decision expected to make-or-break Brexit. Thousands snaked around the block outside schools, village halls, churches, pubs and other community buildings in the wet and cold to exercise their democratic right at the UK's 50,000 polling stations from 7am. The largest queues were seen in London's marginal seats where many were late for work and described the busiest election day they had seen for decades in a vote being treated by many as a second EU referendum. Hundreds waited for up to 45 minutes to vote in Battersea, Bow, Brixton, Clapham, Wandsworth and Woolwich in the capital as well as in Greater Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham as Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn battle to become the next Prime Minister. Experts have said the crowds suggest that the turnout … [Read more...] about ‘Biggest queue I’ve EVER seen at my polling station’: Turnout looks huge as thousands are ALREADY lining up to vote in Britain’s most crucial election in a generation – as Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn give final call to arms
The U.S. military wants to expand its use of artificial intelligence in warfare, but says it will take care to deploy the technology in accordance with the nation's values. In a 17-page report, the Pentagon laid out how it plans to inject artificial intelligence into future military operations and how it will keep up with Russia and China's advancements in the futuristic technology. The report, titled 'Harnessing AI to Advance Our Security and Prosperity,' marks the first time the Pentagon has developed strategies around how it will respond to the rise of artificial intelligence. Scroll down for video In a new report, the Pentagon laid out how it plans to inject AI into future weaponry and how it will keep up with Russia and China's advancements in the futuristic technology The Pentagon defines AI in its report as the ability of machines to perform tasks that typically require human oversight, like detecting patterns or 'learning from experience.' 'AI is poised … [Read more...] about Pentagon unveils 17-page strategy on artificial intelligence and says machines will ‘impact every corner’ of the military as it ramps up efforts in AI-arms race with Russia and China
