Elon Musk (and 350 experts) predict exactly when artificial intelligence will overtake human intelligence

It’s only a matter of time – how much time? Given the speed at which researchers are advancing artificial intelligence, the question has become not if A.I. will become smarter than its human creators, but when? A team of researchers from Yale University and Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute recently set off to determine the answer. During May and June of 2016, they polled hundreds … Continue reading Elon Musk (and 350 experts) predict exactly when artificial intelligence will overtake human intelligence

AI With Human-Level Intelligence Will Be Walking the Streets by 2040

IN BRIEF According to expert Ben Ross, human-level AI is something that we will see in our lifetime, and we’d better be prepared for it — because whether it will be a force of good or destruction is actually in our hands. What happens when computers achieve a human level of artificial intelligence (AI)? Ben Ross, MYOB’s User Experience and Product Management leader, believes that … Continue reading AI With Human-Level Intelligence Will Be Walking the Streets by 2040

Machine learning vs Human learning

Definition of machine learning Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning focuses on the development of computer programs that can change when exposed to new data. The process of machine learning is similar to that of data mining. Both systems search through data to look for patterns. However, instead … Continue reading Machine learning vs Human learning

AI Alignment: Why It’s Hard, and Where to Start

In the talk, Eliezer Yudkowsky introduces some open technical problems in AI alignment and discuss the bigger picture into which they fit, as well as what it’s like to work in this relatively new field.
