A remarkable combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and biology has produced the world’s first “living robots”. Xenobots are less than 1 millimeter long and are made of 500-1,000 living cells. Using their own cellular energy, they can live up to 10 days.
If we are going to make machines with human psychological capacities, we should prepare for the possibility that they may become sentient. How then will they react to our behaviour towards them?
The Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence will explore fundamental issues affecting the use and impact of AI and will ensure that AI treats people fairly, protects their safety, respects their privacy and works for them.
In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in US announced that it's launching a college which is specifically focused on the "ethical evolution" of AI that is already affecting and shaping our society.
The advancement of robotics and artificial intelligence will make 75 million jobs obsolete by the year 2022. But the same report goes on to predict the creation of 133 million new jobs over the same period.
Researchers have developed a prototype of a robot that can express 'emotions' through changes in its outer surface. The robot's skin covers a grid of texture units whose shapes change based on the robot's feelings.
DeepCube, an artificially intelligent system learned to dominate Rubik’s Cube without any human intervention. This research could be used to solve real-world problems, such as predicting the 3D shape of proteins.
Britain is in a strong position to be a world leader in the development of artificial intelligence. But to get there—and to keep AI safe and ethical—tech firms should follow the Committee’s newly proposed “AI Code.”
