That won't stop, perhaps we should be more involved in these technologies ourselves.

"Alphabet's DeepMind Lost $572 Million"

A short read mentioning a few problems with Al development, some hokey hype, but surprisingly, the cooling costs for the servers affects (and even controls) programming designs.

This is a good read for developing an individual's conceptualizations.

I watched "Paradise or Robocaplyse" on dw.com

Mostly, it is "fill-osophy" --filling up time with little-to-no meaning chatter-- despite the program's claim there are "ethical questions" concerning the future of AI.

There was one apparent data point as it is not explained how this was calculated: that the human brain is 1 million times more performing than current AI but Al "develops faster".

Two thoughtful reads.

1] In its wording, tone and graphics, this article deliniates several concerns and unnecessary worries over Al:

A 20 minute read:  https://futureoflife.org/background/benefits-risks-of-artificial-intelligence/  

Comment: this article does lack a couple of summarizing phrases.

2] Al conference indicates 'we' have hit an Al wall' in near term developments:  https://www.wired.com/story/sobering-message-future-ai-party/ 

Has investment graph.

The whole AI thing is seriously overblown into yet another technological terror aka psyop of fake shock and awe for peoples' minds. There is only programming and any programmers know how hard a simple code can be to perfect let alone create a person with a mind like ours. "Ohhg what if we let the program decide honestly as it points a gun at us?!" Horrifying thought no doubt. Nice sci-fi topic too. Sci-Fi.

2932

l watched ~2hour BBC documentary Hyper Evolution: The Rise of the Robots  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRuBZLe8vfs 

This documentary is more Al than mechanical balancing acts. lt is a history back into the 1920s and comes forward -though skipping over the 60s and 70s to the 1980s to 2018.

A couple of items are: Harry May's 1934 robot ALPHA which was promoted in the film The Face of Things to Come and Time magazine.

Another is Grey Walter's "tortoise" which is a "double cell" environmental reactionary using only 'sight' and 'touch'.

The first two parts are quick paced and informative, while the last half-hour is mostly the presenters' summation of their impressions.

A good intro-history.

This is a 'cool' read. About 15 minutes.

lf you ever wondered about building electronics for spacecraft or durability in general, this is a nice introduction.

Limits to data storage:  Digital Memory Loss

The first five minutes of this dw.com Shift broadcast is quite informative, and a slower pace of info after that.

https://www.dw.com/en/shift-living-in-the-digital-age/av-53375348 

-- digital data is not designed to last very long.

 

OPINE as a Question: Then how long will Al be effective, usable and robots(mobile computers) relieable?

This past week, dw.com has a SHIFT SPECIAL Cyber War on drones, robotics and lasers. lt has yet to be accessible online.

This, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5639954/

"Robot Wars: US Empire and geopolitics in the robotic age"

summarizes changes in (great game) power thinking centered around military power politics.

The article also identifies the word "empire" as "the term (which) significantly enriches our geopolitical and conceptual understandings of the looming robotic wars."

COMMENT: Robotic measures and counter-measures, anti-robot weapons integrated with anti-personnel/anti-material weapons. A 4-spaces effort (space,air,land and sea).

The article states "...robots will materialize a robotic US imperium."

I wonder, per automobile driver, which has more accidents, human or computer? I'm guessing computer for now, but not forever. 

The last statistics I read said that human had, on average, one care accident per million miles driven. That is an average, some people have an accident every month (lol) and some never have one. Its hard to do a comparison since there are very few fully autonomous vehicles that are actually on the road now, not test tracks. But that data that we do have suggests that even with the current technologies, self driving cars have much fewer accidents than human drivers, and the technology is improving daily. 

In a study of vehicle incident reports in California, Axios found that humans were at fault in the vast majority of accidents that occurred on the roads. The study, which spans 2014 through 2018, found that when the self-driving cars were in autonomous mode and driving on their own, 38 incidents occurred while moving.Aug 29, 2018
