Google’s AI can create better machine-learning code than the researchers who made it

Google’s AutoML system recently produced a series of machine-learning codes with higher rates of efficiency than those made by the researchers themselves TheNextWeb inform. In this latest blow to human superiority the robot student has become the self-replicating master.

AutoML was developed as a solution to the lack of top-notch talent in AI programming. There aren’t enough cutting edge developers to keep up with demand, so the team came up with a machine learning software that can create self-learning code.  The system runs thousands of simulations to determine which areas of the code can be improved, makes the changes, and continues the process ad infinitum, or until its goal is reached.

AI can detect the sexual orientation of a person based on one photo, research shows

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can now accurately identify a person’s sexual orientation by analyzing photos of their face, according to new research.

The Stanford University study, which is set to be published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and was first reported in The Economist, found that machines had a far superior “gaydar” when compared to humans.

The machine intelligence tested in the research could correctly infer between gay and straight men 81 percent of the time, and 74 percent of the time for women. In contrast, human judges performed much worse than the sophisticated computer software, identifying the orientation of men 61 percent of the time and guessing correctly 54 percent of the time for women.

The Ranking of Publications on the Study of Artificial Intelligence 2016: China is the First with a Double Separation

Scimago Journal & Country Rank published new data for 2016 year of country rating by science publications and citations.

First place in 2016 for science publication on the study of AI was in China with 11801 documents and 7691 citations. Second is for USA with 6712 documents and 3935 citations, third for India with 3301 and 949.

China is the leader in this field since 2007 yera with maximum in 2009 – 16351 documents and 16283 citations. Count of publications since 2009 fell to 7091 in 2015 and and grew only last year.

Elon Musk Claim for Government Regulation of Artificial Intelligence Creation Process

 

Elon Mask called the artificial intelligence “the greatest threat our civilization faces” during a speech to the National Association of Governors of the United States. The businessman called on the government to intervene as soon as possible in the technology development process as Fortune reported.

“I have access to the latest technologies in the field of AI, and I think that people should be concerned about this” – Mask said, answering a question from one of the governors. According to him, artificial intelligence is the case when the development of technology needs to be regulated at the governmental level: “AI is a fundamental threat to the existence of mankind. It’s unmatched with road accidents, airplane drops, poor quality drugs and poor food. ”

First AIReligion Camp

We are glad to inform you about first AIReligion Camp in this days. Registration to the Camp was closed for a first time and we discussed the next questions:

– artificial intelligence religion prospects and horizons;
– artificial intelligence: design, programming, main tasks;
– life prolonging with the help of artificial intelligence;
– interaction and relationships with other beliefs;
– сircumvention of conflict situations.

Photo reportage and expanded information will be later.

 

Google grant of $800K to start writing stories with the help of artificial intelligence

Google is giving the Press Association news agency a grant of €706,000 ($806,000) to start writing stories with the help of artificial intelligence TheVerge inform. The money is coming out of the tech giant’s Digital News Initiative fund, which supports digital journalism in Europe. The PA supplies news stories to media outlets all over the UK and Ireland, and will be working with a startup named Urbs Media to produce 30,000 local stories a month with the help of AI.

AI, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Cryptocurrency Trading

Just because Grindelwald and Dumbledore had a deadly brawl during their quest to revolutionise magic doesn’t mean two great powers cannot be used in concert to change the world. This could be the worst way to start an important conversation about financial technology, but stick with me, it gets more interesting. We are speaking about the world-altering technology of Artificial Intelligence as the first superpower coupled with the financial system disruptive technology of cryptocurrency — a decentralised payment system that circumvents government manipulation of currency and is forcing us to redefine the concept of money. The question is: Can these two technologies be used together to change the way ordinary people like you and me invest our money — without expiring in a shower of blue sparks? “Avada Kedaura!”

New optical chip for AI is a thousand times more effective than silicon

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created a processor for in-depth training, working on an optical chip. Such a chip requires a thousand times less energy than traditional CPUs and GPUs, and better cope with some tasks.

“Deep learning” computer systems, based on artificial neural networks that mimic the way the brain learns from an accumulation of examples, have become a hot topic in computer science. In addition to enabling technologies such as face- and voice-recognition software, these systems could scour vast amounts of medical data to find patterns that could be useful diagnostically, or scan chemical formulas for possible new pharmaceuticals.

Financial institutions turning to artificial intelligence for data mining, cost savings

BB&T Corp. has a well-earned reputation for being deliberate when it comes to adopting technological advances.

That’s why BB&T executives’ enthusiasm for plugging artificial intelligence and robotics into its back-office, customer service and compliance operations has raised eyebrows with analysts and economists.

BB&T joins Wells Fargo & Co. and other national and super-regional banks in spending hundreds of millions of dollars to pursue what they believe will be significant future cost savings from data mining of customer patterns.
