Thread: AI is coming at what price?

    AI is coming at what price?

    Ye ha AI engine being shared by Google!?!
    In the article is states 'Google believes it can accelerate the evolution of AI.' Brilliant. I didn't ask for it and I'm sure none of you did we've probably got more sense.
    Did know one read sci fi as a kid? Watch Terminator?? I'm no luddite we need technology to help not rule us.
    Are we not going to even get a chance to decide if this is safe or not? Because it isn't.
    We need to solve these problems ourselves. We are here to realise our own spiritual potential that's why life is such a bitch. Try to take that away and you are left with a dead civilization.
    Google search engine works just fine thanks. I don't want it telling me what to do or taking over my life.
    The infrastructure is there it's naive madness.

    Google Just Open Sourced TensorFlow, Its Artificial Intelligence Engine

    Tech pundit Tim O’Reilly had just tried the new Google Photos app, and he was amazed by the depth of its artificial intelligence.

    O’Reilly was standing a few feet from Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page this past May, at a small cocktail reception for the press at the annual Google I/O conference—the centerpiece of the company’s year. Google had unveiled its personal photos app earlier in the day, and O’Reilly marveled that if he typed something like “gravestone” into the search box, the app could find a photo of his uncle’s grave, taken so long ago....

    Is this the beginning of the end of humanity as we know it? You don’t need to be a genius to figure it out, or maybe you do? Time is irrelevant to AI. So who made who? Just throw it around in your brain for a while.

    The answer may not be as simple as you think...

    This is the start. Still we charge headlong into the abyss

    Facebook has shut down two artificial intelligences that appeared to be chatting to each other in a strange language only they understood.

    The two chatbots came to create their own changes to English that made it easier for them to work – but which remained mysterious to the humans that supposedly look after them.

    The bizarre discussions came as Facebook challenged its chatbots to try and negotiate with each other over a trade, attempting to swap hats, balls and books, each of which were given a certain value. But they quickly broke down as the robots appeared to chant at each other in a language that they each understood but which appears mostly incomprehensible to humans.

    The robots had been instructed to work out how to negotiate between themselves, and improve their bartering as they went along.

    The actual negotiations appear very odd, and don't look especially useful:...

    Humanity is heading for trouble. Glad I won't be around for the worst of this! (yea its a bit long, but very telling)

    I can't imagine mixing the coming AI systems with Synthetic biology . . . after reading this article I feel rather speechless.

    Synthetic biology and the rise of the 'spider-goats'

    From the article:
    In a sense, spider-goats are an extension of the farming we've been doing for 10,000 years. All livestock and arable has been carefully bred, each cross being a genetic experiment of its own. "The trouble is, you can't farm spiders," Randy says with an almost comic deadpan face. "They're very cannibalistic." He and his team took the gene that encodes dragline silk from an orb-weaver spider and placed it among the DNA that prompts milk production in the udders. This genetic circuit was then inserted in an egg and implanted into a mother goat. Now, when Freckles lactates, her milk is full of spider-silk protein.
    Reminds me of the genetic lab activities on SERPO!

    This may sound glib. Life forms are complex at every level. If there is one concrete thing we have learned from the billions spent on reading our own genetic code, it's that biology is messy. Scientists are often confounded by baffling "noise" in the molecules that make up living organisms, unpredictable variation set among unfathomable sophistication. Weiss and his comrades at the BioBricks Foundation want to strip out all the noise in biology and turn it into pure engineering, where organisms can be treated like machines and their inner workings are component parts.
