Our lives are already enhanced by AI – or at least an AI in its infancy – with technologies using algorithms that help them to learn from our behaviour. As AI grows up and starts to think, not just to learn, we ask how human-like do we want their intelligence to be and what impact …

Powerful AI needs to be reliably aligned with human values. Does this mean that AI will eventually have to police those values? This has been the decade of AI, with one astonishing feat after another. A chess-playing AI that can defeat not only all human chess players, but also all previous human-programmed chess machines, after …

Microsoft Build 2019 | Introducing AI-driven content understanding with Cognitive Search and Cognitive Session ID: BRK2001   Come learn how to apply AI to understand your business documents. Cognitive search allows you to apply AI (Cognitive Skills) to your data to extract entities and relationships from your unstructured documents, turning them into your private knowledge …

MIT system “learns” how to optimally allocate workloads across thousands of servers to cut costs, save energy. A novel system developed by MIT researchers automatically “learns” how to schedule data-processing operations across thousands of servers — a task traditionally reserved for imprecise, human-designed algorithms. Doing so could help today’s power-hungry data centers run far more …

Autonomous weapons – killer robots that can attack without a human operator – are dangerous tools. There is no doubt about this fact. As tech entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk, Mustafa Suleyman and other signatories to an open letter to the United Nations have put it, autonomous weapons ‘can be weapons of terror, weapons that …

National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) recently released declassified documents, unveiling an AI program known as Sentient. What is Sentient? Think of Sentient as a man-made brain. Sentient is a top-secret military AI system that American Intelligence agencies have been developing since 2010. The NRO document released regarding Sentient cites four core functions: Data ingest and processing: …

Microsoft Build 2019 | Designing AI Responsibly Session ID: BRK2003   Designing AI to be trustworthy requires creating solutions that reflect ethical principles that are deeply rooted in important and timeless values: Fairness, Reliability & Safety, Privacy & Security, Inclusiveness, Transparency and Accountability. But how can you make sure your AI system reflects those values? …

Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are becoming smarter every day, beating world champions in games like Go, identifying tumours in medical scans better than human radiologists, and increasing the efficiency of electricity-hungry data centres. Some economists are comparing the transformative potential of AI with other “general purpose technologies” such as the steam engine, electricity or the …

Human-level intelligence is familiar in biological hardware – you’re using it now. Science and technology seem to be converging, from several directions, on the possibility of similar intelligence in non-biological systems. It is difficult to predict when this might happen, but most artificial intelligence (AI) specialists estimate that it is more likely than not within …
