An Evil Index for AI

The article below is not about Artificial Intelligence (AI). But it is about the ethics of algorithms that are likely to be used as building blocks in developing AI. Algorithms use decision trees to function and if the decision points embed a bias, the results are likely to be biased. If the subset of data […]

Using AI in the Development of Ethics

Both our understanding and application of ethics need improvement. There has been recent discussion of applying ethics to the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and control of AI. What is really needed is the use of AI in the development and guidance of our ethics. Once a framework of moral standards and a methodology of […]

AI Chess Machine Learns by Itself

Deep learning researchers are combining neural networks with the computing power of GPUs to reduce the training time required to produce good results. But this just accelerates the speed of “brute force” learning that tries everything and tests for success or failure. Human intelligence uses filters to eliminate choices that make no sense. Narrowing the […]

Software Based Synthetic Knowledge

Software based calculators, spreadsheets, databases, word processors and presentation managers have been augmenting our own ability to process information for years. Over time, they have added math functions, spell checking and animation features to make them more effective. Newer software is developing the ability to process and analyze voice and video streams at ever increasing […]

Simple Rules Create Cellular Automata

Complex Adaptive Systems: 9 Cellular Automaton – [youtube.com] In this video we are going to discuss cellular automata, we will firstly talk about what they are before looking at a classical example, we will then discuss individually the different classes of patterns that cellular automata can generate before wrapping-up with a talk about their significance […]

Synthesizing Intelligence

We are constantly getting better at designing software tools to help us navigate an ever growing ocean of information and negotiate methods of applying it wisely. We ask our tools for advice and decide how to use the advice they offer. We use some of these new tools to aid in the design of better […]

Ethics is the Best Measure of Civilization

We often wonder what will happen when humanity makes contact with aliens or creates real artificial intelligence. Our imagination creates accounts of intelligent machines destroying human civilization or advanced but hostile aliens doing the same thing. Neither of these is likely. The processes of intelligent thinking, scientific reasoning, and ethical analysis all involve some form […]

Algorithm Discovers New Superconductor

In nature, random genetic variations produce results that are sorted by survival. Over time, the best working variations reproduce more often, creating the process we call evolution. Evolutionary algorithms follow the same concept, trying small variations to advance the solution of a problem. An evolutionary algorithm designed to predict stable crystal structures has discovered a […]

Artificial Emotion for AI

Emotion can be categorized as: happy, sad, afraid, angry, trust, disgust, surprise, anticipation. These groups are from Plutchik’s wheel of emotions. He postulated that an entire spectrum of emotional states can be derived from combinations of eight basic forms. There are other similar taxonomies of emotion. Various emotional states are associated with physiological state changes. […]

Potential AI Catastrophe

“Weak AI” and/or “Narrow AI” is defined in the article linked below as Artificial Intelligence (AI) that may be able to match or even exceed human intelligence in a narrowly specified area, but not in a broader, overall general intelligence. As a result, we end up with tools that can operate faster, better, stronger in […]
