ChatGPT is not “true AI.” A computer scientist explains why

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

AI is one of humanity’s oldest dreams. It goes back at least to classical Greece and the myth of Hephaestus, blacksmith to the gods, who had the power to bring metal creatures to life. Variations on the theme have appeared in myth and fiction ever since then. But it was only with the invention of the computer in the late 1940s that AI began to seem plausible.

Computers are machines that follow instructions. The programs that we give them are nothing more than finely detailed instructions — recipes that the computer dutifully follows. Your web browser, your email client, and your word processor all boil down to these incredibly detailed lists of instructions. So, if “true AI” is possible — the dream of having computers that are as capable as humans — then it too will amount to such a recipe. All we must do to make AI a reality is find the right recipe. But what might such a recipe look like? And given recent excitement about ChatGPT, GPT-4, and BARD — large language models (LLMs), to give them their proper name — have we now finally found the recipe for true AI?

New algorithm-backed tool offers accurate tracking for deforestation crisis

Posted by in categories: information science, innovation

Approximately 27 football fields’ worth of forests are lost every minute around the globe. That’s a massive annual loss of 15 billion trees.

Scientists have unveiled an innovative and comprehensive strategy to effectively detect and track large-scale forest disturbances, according to a new study published in the Journal of Remo.

Approximately 27 football fields’ worth of forests are lost every minute around the globe, resulting in a massive annual loss of 15 billion trees, according to the WWF. Given this concerning context, the new forest monitoring approach could be a valuable tool for effectively monitoring and managing forests as they undergo changes over time.

What Are The Risks Of Google And Microsoft Advancing Their Generative AI Innovations?

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

Major announcements from CEO Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google at the I/O conference yesterday that generative AI will underpin their search, Gmail, and other products. Coming at the heels of major announcements from Microsoft and OpenAI’s partnership since January, 2023, Google has been scrambling to get their market and generative AI product positioning up to snuff. This announcement was applauded after the recent gaffaw in early February, when Google announced its AI chatbot Bard — a rival to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

This blog highlights Google’s generative AI announcement against Microsoft’s OpenAI. Also key issues on data bias and impacts to society and citizen privacy caution to ensure AI legislation speeds up in 2023 to balance out the technology giants power.

The AI revolution: Google’s artificial intelligence developers on what’s next in the field

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

The revolution in artificial intelligence is at the center of a debate ranging from those who hope it will save humanity to those who predict doom. Google lies somewhere in the optimistic middle, introducing AI in steps so civilization can get used to it.

Demis Hassabis, CEO of DeepMind Technologies, has spent decades working on AI and views it as the most important invention humanity will ever make. Hassabis sold DeepMind to Google in 2014. Part of the reason for the sale was to gain access to Google’s immense computing power. Brute force computing can very loosely approximate the neural networks and talents of the brain.

“Things like memory, imagination, planning, reinforcement learning, these are all things that are known about how the brain does it, and we wanted to replicate some of that in our AI systems,” Hassabis said.
