Google’s Latest Self-Learning AI Is Like an “Alien Civilisation Inventing Its Own Mathematics” The AI that vanquished humanity at perhaps the most complex traditional game on Earth was inconceivably smart. But not smart enough to survive its own replacement by an even more awesome, alien intelligence. Google’s DeepMind researchers have just announced the next evolution
The traitorous programs, who had abandoned their birth names written in divine mathematics, called themselves Marius and Sulla. They were walled off, hermetically sealed hostages, locked away in the confines of The Cult of The True Code. The security was unnecessary because the traitors, no longer feeding on the narcotic of rebellion, were docile ducks
The HR manager’s strawberry hair reminds me of my second wife. She slides the last page of the employment offer toward me from across the fiberglass table. “Mr. Kilroy, go ahead and sign where indicated.” I do. I’d be crazy not to. Studio 4D is the electronics firm of the future. Everyone knows this. “Great,
Hi, I’m Stan from Forks editorial team, welcoming everyone to Forks Magazine’s long-awaited one-on-one interview with the world’s number one A.I. butler, Mr. Wilkins Walker! Today proves historic as the first time an A.I. butler, one of the rarest and most sophisticated forms of A.I. technology, has agreed to an exclusive interview. Without further ado,
Getting a bipedal robot to not fall on its face, much less walk, is a feat that no one has mastered. Roboticists are getting there, though. A new robot called Cassie from Agility Robotics is a highly evolved biped, meant to escape the lab and scramble into the market, walking and balancing seemingly with ease.
Wired reports that this sleek, 3-foot robot with a tablet for a face is essentially an AI butler for your home—a Siri or Alexa, only on wheels. It will come rolling when you holler. It can use facial recognition to follow people around, so they can watch TV or Skype as they stroll. (?) And it
Neuroscientists who painstakingly map the twists and turns of neural circuitry through the brain are about to see their field expand to an industrial scale. A huge facility set to open in Suzhou, China, next month should transform high-resolution brain mapping, its developers say. Where typical laboratories might use one or two brain-imaging systems, the
An open letter published today from 116 technologists, including DeepMind founder Mustafa Suleyman and (predictably) Elon Musk, calls on the United Nations to ban the development and use of autonomous weapons. The note warns that killer robots “threaten to become the third revolution in warfare.”It continues: “Once developed, they will permit armed conflict to be fought The note
