A theory of consciousness from a theoretical computer science perspective: Insights from the Conscious Turing Machine

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, science

This paper provides evidence that a theoretical computer science (TCS) perspective can add to our understanding of consciousness by providing a simple framework for employing tools from computational complexity theory and machine learning. Just as the Turing machine is a simple model to define and explore computation, the Conscious Turing Machine (CTM) is a simple model to define and explore consciousness (and related concepts). The CTM is not a model of the brain or cognition, nor is it intended to be, but a simple substrate-independent computational model of (the admittedly complex concept of) consciousness. This paper is intended to introduce this approach, show its possibilities, and stimulate research in consciousness from a TCS perspective.

Elon Musk: If You Don’t Think AI Could Outsmart You, You’re an Idiot

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

😳!!!


“I’ve been banging this AI drum for a decade,” Musk told Business Insider.

Musk’s latest warning is that smart people who assume they could never be fooled by a machine are in effect lowering their guard to any AI trickery coming their way.

UMN research shows people can control robotic arm with their minds

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have made a major breakthrough that allows people to control a robotic arm using only their minds. The research has the potential to help millions of people who are paralyzed or have neurodegenerative diseases.

The study is published online today in Scientific Reports, a Nature research journal.

UK’s National Grid launches drone trial to fully automate asset inspections

Posted by in categories: drones, health, robotics/AI

UK’s National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) is launching trials to fully automate the corrosion inspection of electricity transmission pylons with the help of autonomous drones.

NGET owns 21,900 steel lattice pylons that carry overhead transmission conductor wires in England and Wales. Transmission pylon steelwork conditions can deteriorate through corrosion, so periodic assessments are made to understand the health of the network. NGET inspects around 3,650 steel lattice pylons each year, capturing high definition still color images of steelwork using helicopters and manually-operated drones.

Steven PostrelThe incompetence of this bad cut-and-paste article is notable. The S&P 500 is not new, not ESG related, and not dropping Tesla.

There is a separate “S&P 500 ESG” product that is relatively new and that dropped Tesla, but it isn’t the benchmark that a… See more.

Is DeepMind’s Gato AI really a human-level intelligence breakthrough?

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

😃


DeepMind has released what it calls a “generalist” AI called Gato, which can play Atari games, accurately caption images, chat naturally with a human and stack coloured blocks with a robot arm, among 600 other tasks. But is Gato truly intelligent having artificial general intelligence or is it just an AI model with a few extra tricks up its sleeve?

What is artificial general intelligence (AGI)?

Scientists develop real-life mind controllable robotic hand using AI

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI

This AI powered prosthetic arm understands what you think. Muscle-controlled prosthetic limbs that patients with amputations across the globe currently use have various limitations and challenges. Good quality prosthetics parts are cumbersome, come with a complex setup, and require patients to undergo training for several months to learn their use. Interestingly, a new technology proposed by a team of researchers at the University of Minnesota (UMN) can overcome all such challenges.

It may sound like science-fiction, but the researchers claim that the new technology would allow patients to control robotic body parts using their thoughts. By employing artificial intelligence and machine learning, the researchers at UMN have developed a portable neuroprosthetic hand. The robotic hand comes equipped with a nerve implant linked to the peripheral nerve in a patient’s arm.
