The Exciting, Perilous Journey Toward AGI | Ilya Sutskever | TED

Posted by in categories: business, policy, robotics/AI

Just weeks before the management shakeup at OpenAI rocked Silicon Valley and made international news, the company’s cofounder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever explored the transformative potential of artificial general intelligence (AGI), highlighting how it could surpass human intelligence and profoundly transform every aspect of life. Hear his take on the promises and perils of AGI — and his optimistic case for how unprecedented collaboration will ensure its safe and beneficial development. (Recorded October 17, 2023)

Could IonQ become the next Nvidia?

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, robotics/AI

Nvidia’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock has rallied about 1,110% over the past five years, turning it into the world’s first trillion-dollar chipmaker. A large portion of that rally was fueled by the explosive growth of the artificial intelligence (AI) market, which drove more companies to buy Nvidia’s high-end data center chips for processing AI tasks.

Nvidia might still have room to run, but it’s asking a lot for a $1.2 trillion company to generate even bigger multibagger gains. Therefore, many investors are already likely seeking out the “next Nvidia” — a company that is exposed to the same secular AI tailwinds but has more upside potential. Could the quantum computing company IonQ (NYSE: IONQ) check all the right boxes?

Unlike traditional computers, which process data with binary “bits” of zeros and ones, quantum computers can store zeros and ones simultaneously in “qubits” to process data at much faster rates. However, quantum computing systems are also much larger, more expensive, and more prone to making mistakes than traditional computers.

Europe has lost the AI race. It can’t ignore the quantum computing one

Posted by in categories: business, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Europe has become known as a second-place destination for business, and more recently, innovation.

Disruptive technologies like AI have hailed from the United States for decades with no European challenger in sight.

However, when a four-week-old French AI startup secured €105 million for its seed round, it demonstrated that Europe isn’t as disadvantaged as people think. While AI is a saturated market, quantum computing can allow Europe to survive in a century ruled by China and the US.

Pentagon steps on AI accelerator as age of lethal autonomy looms

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI, space, surveillance

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (AP) — Artificial intelligence employed by the U.S. military has piloted pint-sized surveillance drones in special operations forces’ missions and helped Ukraine in its war against Russia. It tracks soldiers’ fitness, predicts when Air Force planes need maintenance and helps keep tabs on rivals in space.

Now, the Pentagon is intent on fielding multiple thousands of relatively inexpensive, expendable AI-enabled autonomous vehicles by 2026 to keep pace with China. The ambitious initiative — dubbed Replicator — seeks to “galvanize progress in the too-slow shift of U.S. military innovation to leverage platforms that are small, smart, cheap, and many,” Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks said in August.

While its funding is uncertain and details vague, Replicator is expected to accelerate hard decisions on what AI tech is mature and trustworthy enough to deploy — including on weaponized systems.

Gödel’s incompleteness theorems don’t rule out artificial intelligence

Posted by in categories: information science, quantum physics, robotics/AI

I’ve posted a number of times about artificial intelligence, mind uploading, and various related topics. There are a number of things that can come up in the resulting discussions, one of them being Kurt Gödel’s incompleteness theorems.

The typical line of arguments goes something like this: Gödel implies that there are solutions that no algorithmic system can accomplish but that humans can accomplish, therefore the computational theory of mind is wrong, artificial general intelligence is impossible, and animal, or at least human minds require some as of yet unknown physics, most likely having something to do with the quantum wave function collapse (since that remains an intractable mystery in physics).

How one company uses AI to catch cybersecurity threats in real time

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, robotics/AI

Since I like AI and I’m possibly going into Cyber Security. This is a great use for AI. Catching cyber threats in real time. It’s ML of course.

Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, Palo Alto Networks Zero Trust approach unifies network security for companies so they can focus on what they do best.

For IT leaders, building a safe and secure network used to be much easier. Before companies had multiple locations due to hybrid work, data was stored on-site, and employees only accessed it from those locations. Nowadays, with workers logging in remotely, and from a variety of devices, securing data has become significantly more complex. Additionally, many organizations have taken their networks and applications to the cloud, further complicating their security architectures and putting them at risk of cyberattacks.

Can AI Outperform Human Creativity? Research Suggests Machines Are More Capable Than We Thought

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

Picture this: You’re in a conference room, surrounded by a mix of designers, engineers and strategists, all eager to brainstorm your company’s next big innovation. Could a machine be more effective at guiding this brainstorming session than your human team? It may sound counterintuitive, but AI is not only catching up to human creativity — it’s excelling in ways that could redefine how we approach innovation.

A growing number of tech execs think AI is giving Big Tech ‘inordinate’ power

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

Tech execs have voiced concern that the development of artificial intelligence is concentrated in the hands of too few companies, potentially giving them too much power. OpenAI’s ChatGPT marked the start of what many in the industry have called an AI arms race, as tech giants including Microsoft and…

ChatGPT marked the start of what many in the industry have called an AI arms race, as tech giants have sought to launch AI models.
