Google's AI has built another, superior AI

The Google Brain project has created an AI that is capable of designing a 'child' AI superior to itself.
The new artificial intelligence, which is known as AutoML (Automated Machine Learning), acts as a controller neural network that can develop a child AI network for specific tasks.

To demonstrate the system, Google researchers tasked AutoML with developing a child AI known as NASNet that can recognize objects ( cars, trees, people etc. ) in video footage in real-time.

By analyzing the performance of NASNet, implementing improvements and then repeating this process thousands of time, AutoML was able to create an AI that superseded all other versions.

The resulting NASNet child AI was 1.2% more accurate and 4% more efficient that any existing human-made version of the same system.

"We hope that the larger machine learning community will be able to build on these models to address multitudes of computer vision problems we have not yet imagined," the researchers wrote.

Robots will never be able to wipe us out. If they become aggressive we can take the battery out. Simple as that.

Sam Harris (neuro-scientist,) in his Ted Talk. He actually predicts 20,000 years of "human-level" progress in a week based on the speed of a computer's brain vs. our own. Full Tran on NPR I see no reason why this shouldn't be the case. The AI doesn't have to do anything extraordinary, just process data and solve problems the same way humans do - the difference being the raw speed at which this happens. Human beingsare the "X factor" in this equation as computers are predictable but there is no telling how society will react to such intense progress, "week after week".

It's been said that when computers create better computers that the pace of development will leap forward at blinding speed. Fear of machine Armageddon is very real. It doesn't have to be

I'm figuring if they can think faster than us, they're probably at least afew steps ahead of us. The last thing we'll hear as we're sprayed with nerve gas is...I'm sorry, Dave...I can't let you do that.

There are two major problems with all of that, though arguably one of them is being worked on. The first major problem is that computers are not creative and have so far not shown the ability to be. While they can due certain things far faster then a human they can only do it within the limits of how they are programmed. So far computers can not create anything truly new, all they can potentially do is quickly optimize what has been created. A computer isn't going to create some new field of math or create a new theory for physics, to use a programming example a computer might be able to cr... [More]

They lack self awareness and only mimic the human brain computer and human appearance even. Bigger concern is robot automation in the work force, on one hand that's good but on other hand society needs to adopt as there will be more and more work shortages. The terminator type AI bots to take over humanity is not really as a big concern for me.

Except, you can't control God ^^ Possessing a power that you can't control, we've all seen that on every movie what's the consequence. Robots are just one of many concerns. If there is a higher intelligence like a mad scientist who controls the robots, I don't think it's that easy to wipe them. One is enough, what about one country who possess nuclear power and decide to enslave the world. Anything could happen, we human are not currently living in peace.
