Be Afraid: Google develops AI brain which can teach and think for itself

Google has developed AI which can teach itself

As part of the global giant’s bid to create superior artificial intelligence (AI) the global giant’s London-based DeepMind team has created an AI machine that is able to teach itself and figure out rules.

Google researchers set their AI protégé the task of learning and perfecting the Chinese game of Go without human interference.

And the AI computer, known as AlphaGo Zero, not only taught itself the game but became increasingly unbeatable.

Previously AlphaGo Zero beat the world masters of the game of Go.

However, the latest development saw AlphaGo Zero tasked with learning the game from a previous version, known simply as AlphaGo, which had learned from humans.

AlphaGo Zero was given nothing but a blank score card and the rules and then had to learn from the original program.

Within 72 hours, the newest version had completely mastered the game and beaten its predecessor 100 times to zero.

For context, the older versions had beaten world champions in Go, so Google believes that the latest program is the strongest player in the history of Go.

A blog on the DeepMind website reads: “Previous versions of AlphaGo initially trained on thousands of human amateur and professional games to learn how to play Go.

“AlphaGo Zero skips this step and learns to play simply by playing games against itself, starting from completely random play. In doing so, it quickly surpassed human level of play”.

AlphaGo Zero’s lead programmer, David Silver, said: “By not using human data — by not using human expertise in any fashion — we’ve actually removed the constraints of human knowledge.

“It’s therefore able to create knowledge itself from first principles; from a blank slate. This enables it to be much more powerful than previous versions.

“It started off playing very naively like a human beginner, but over time it played games which were hard to differentiate from human professionals.”

According to DeepMind co-founder Demis Hassabis, learning Go is just the beginning, and in the future the program could be used to further scientific research.

The Jobs Robots Are Already Stealing From Humans……..

·        CHEF: A start-up called Moley Robotics has invented a 100% automated, intelligent robot chef. The cooking automaton can learn recipes and techniques, whip up gourmet meals and even clean up after itself.

·        SECURITY GUARD: Robotic security guards are already patrolling businesses.

·        Knightscope's K5 robot constantly monitors its surroundings for suspicious behaviour and can detect potentially criminal 'audio events' such as glass breaking or people screaming.

·        RETAIL SALES ASSOCIATE: Nestle uses Pepper robots to sell Dolce Gusto coffee pods and machines in department stores in Japan, as well as answer customer queries.

·        SOLDIERS: Weaponized drones have taken the place of hundreds of soldiers in combat situations, the US Army has used the technology extensively in the ongoing 'War on Terror'.

·        SURGEON: Surgical robots are already taking over the operating theater. Da Vinci launched its range of operating robots in 2000, they have since performed two million procedures.

·        FACTORY WORKER: Earlier this year Apple and Samsung supplier Foxconn replaced 60,000 employees with robots, and China's Everwin Precision Technology is in the process of replacing 90% of its factory workforce with automatons.

·        TAKEOUT DRIVERS: Online delivery service Just Eat have already started to deliver orders using a robot. The self-driving robots, which have been engineered by Anglo-Estonian company Starship Technologies, are fitted with GPS to navigate the capital's fare

He said: “A lot of the AlphaGo team are now moving onto other projects to try and apply this technology to other domains.

"I hope these kind of algorithms will be routinely working with us as scientific experts medical experts on advancing the frontiers of science and medicine – that’s what I hope.”
