There are already machines that perform certain important tasks independently without programmers fully understanding how they learned it.
After being shown videos of physical phenomena on Earth, the AI has not rediscovered the actual variables we are using; Instead, it actually evolved new variables to explain what it saw.
A new study finds that artificial intelligence can devise ways to distribute wealth that are more common than systems designed by people.
The circuit components can seamlessly switch between acting as resistors, memory capacitors, artificial neurons, and artificial synapses. A silicon brain that can rewire itself just like ours might not be so far away.
The future of technological employment comes down to a key challenge of human-machine collaboration.
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.
There’s a strong global convergence towards five ethical principles, including transparency, justice and fairness, non-maleficence, responsibility, and privacy.
Giving researchers and companies freedom to explore, in order to seek these positive achievements from AI systems, means opening up the risk of developing more advanced ways to create deception and other social problems.
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?
IBM's artificial intelligence-powered Project Debater lost a competition to a human debate champion but said the experience was an important milestone in efforts to get computers to master human language.
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.
