Congress may soon consider legislation reportedly being drafted by Senator Cornyn that could heighten scrutiny of Chinese investments in artificial intelligence and other sensitive emerging technologies considered critical to U.S. national security interests.
AI systems continue to get increasingly powerful, but still need far too much hand-holding by their human masters. New research from DeepMind and OpenAI suggests a mere nudge here and there at the outset can be enough to help artificial intelligence accomplish tricky tasks.
The Pentagon has raised concerns about China’s access to artificial-intelligence-based technology developed in the US, according to Reuters. The news agency says a leaked report proposes that export controls be updated to stop Chinese organisations being able to invest in some start-ups. It suggests the move is needed to prevent their advanced algorithms being repurposed for the military by Beijing.
The performance of humans’ puny brains will be outmatched by computers within just 13 years, billionaire Elon Musk has claimed. The Tesla and SpaceX founder said that artificial intelligence will beat us at just about everything by 2030.
The balance of power in technology is shifting. China, which for years watched enviously as the West invented the software and the chips powering today’s digital age, has become a major player in artificial intelligence, what some think may be the most important technology of the future. Experts widely believe China is only a step behind the United States.
Do you think you know cars? Well, Blippar’s new machine learning technology is ready to take you on, as the augmented reality/visual search company is today announcing automotive recognition tech. In other words, Blippar’s AI can identify the make, model and year of any U.S. car made in 2000 or after, as long as the car is traveling slower than 15mph.
Among other things, Google unveiled new ways for its massive network of computers to identify images, as well as recommend, share, and organize photos. It also is launching an attempt to make its voice-controlled digital assistant more proactive and visual while expanding its audience to Apple's iPhone, where it will try to outwit an older peer, Siri.
Machine learning technologies in the AI field are designed in such a manner that they can interact directly with students without any human intervention, according to the report, and such technologies are capable of teaching varied subjects, such as mathematics, languages, physics, law, and medicine.
Google today launched Lens, a service that uses AI to quickly recognize objects, businesses, and other things in the world. The news was announced onstage during the keynote address at I/O, Google’s annual developer conference, by CEO Sundar Pichai.
While at DellEMC World this week there was an interesting panel, led by The Institute of the Future, on how increasingly more intelligent machines will interact with humans by 2030. The panel included experts on millennials, human machine interfaces and two future facing analysts (otherwise known as futurists). Given this is a topic that will likely define us as a race and drive products and services more and more as we exit this decade and enter the next.
