Transcript of ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

What is A.I.?
"To endow machines with
some of the traits we value most highly
in ourselves—the faculty of reason,
skill in solving problems, creativity,
the capacity to learn from experience."
- Brian Hayes
"...computational devices and systems which can be made to act in a manner which humans would be inclined to call intelligent..."
- University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Stands for ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
1956
1962
1997/2011
1965
1946
First digital computer
-First computer originally
made for the Army

-Occupied about 1,800 square feet

-Weighted about
50 tons
-Robotic company Uniamation
creates the
first
industrial
robot
Singularity first introduced
The idea that A.I. will eventually become
smarter than humans
and wipe them out is introduce by IJ Good.
Deep Blue and Watson
In 1997, IBM's chess program Deep Blue
beats world chess champion Garry Kasparov
The 1st A.I. Program
-Called Logic Theorist

-Used to mimic
human problem solving
skills

-Solved 38 out 52 math
problems

-Opened the door for
A.I.engineering

Unimate
-It's main job was on an
assembly line welding on
automobiles
In 2011, IBM's super computer Watson beats the 2 highest winning champions on Jeopardy
Wouldn't this be nice
Cars that drive themselves
Self working lawn
care units
Robotic home service units
OR...
Singularity
“We will soon create intelligences greater than our own ... When this happens, human history will have reached a kind of singularity..." -
Vernor Vinge
"Eventually decisions necessary to keep the system running will be so complex that human beings will be incapable of making desicions intelligently...because they will be so dependent on them, turning them off would amount to suicide." -
Ray Kurzweil 's
The Age of Spiritual Machines

- Ray Kurzweil predicts that computers will be as
smart as humans by 2029
, and that
by 2045
, "computers will be
billions of times more powerful
than unaided human intelligence."
Not everyone is on board
"If a person overturned a cup of coffee they know that the end result will be a puddle on the floor. A computer program, on the other hand, would have to do a laborious simulation and know the exact size of the cup, the height of the cup from the surface and various other parameters to understand the outcome." -
Ernest Davis computer scientist New York University
"...human consciousness simply can’t be replicated in silicon...its most important features are the result of unpredictable, nonlinear interactions among billions of cells..."
-
Miguel Nicolelis neuroscientist Duke University


"I think that people who are worried about robots taking over the world should go to a robotics conference and watch these things try to walk."
- Dr. Mark Humphrys University of Edinburg
What if our world turned into something different?
Pros and Cons
of Artificial Intelligence
in the world

Improve human life by
Protection
(military defenses, home burglary)
Improvement of human health
(implementing technology into ourselves)
Providing personal assistance
(driving, home care)
Singularity
Machines will become far more advanced than humans by their sheer intelligence...leaving no need for humans
Humans will have no jobs
By using A.I. do to human jobs, will humans be put out of work?
What will the economy look like?
If A.I. does everything for humans, will humans be terminal couch potatoes?

Possibly provide humans with the ability to live forever
PROs
CONs
"By the 2030s we’ll be putting millions of nanobots inside our bodies to augment our immune system, to basically wipe out disease."

Artifical Intelligence over the years
A.I in Pop Culture
Movies like
The Terminator
and
The Matrix
brought A.I. to life in pop culture. This further enhanced people's thoughts on the future of artificial technology, for better or worse.
The Matrix
1999
i,Robot
2004
Stealth
2005
The Terminator
1984
- Ray Kurzweil
What if A.I.was like this...
