Deepmind’s Crazy Plan To Surpass OpenAI’s Best AI

Posted by in categories: futurism, robotics/AI

Google’s Deepmind is working on a rather crazy and unique plan to surpass OpenAI’s biggest and best Artificial Intelligence Model within the next few months. In a new paper, AI researchers at DeepMind present a new technique to improve the capacity of reinforcement learning agents to cooperate with humans at different skill levels. Accepted at the annual NeurIPS conference, the technique is called Fictitious Co-Play (FCP) and it does not require human-generated data to train the RL agents.

Helen Caldicott — “Th” Thorium Documentary

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, existential risks, media & arts, military, nuclear energy

This is the same type of double double DOUBLE down on hyperbolic and aggressive anti expert BS that has pushed a not insignificant portion of the population of the US to throw a violent tantrum against covid19 vaccines and wearing a piece of cloth on their face to keep from DYING. Similarly, ultra environmentalists on the far left have ceased to try to protect the environment FOR future generations. Now they want to protect the environment FROM future generations. They’ve become ANTIHUMAN, often to a disturbingly horrific — if hilariously stupid — extent. LITERALLY. Unless you think we shouldn’t build anything on the sterile, irradiated and dead surface of the moon by polluting it — or any other moon, asteroid, or planet by stepping on it’s surface with our filthy monkey feet. Or throwing trash into the SUN because we’d be…

DeepMind’s AI helps untangle the mathematics of knots

Posted by in categories: mathematics, robotics/AI

Computer simulations and visualizations of knots and other objects have long helped mathematicians to look for patterns and develop their intuition, says Jeffrey Weeks, a mathematician based in Canton, New York, who has pioneered some of those techniques since the 1980s. But, he adds, “Getting the computer to seek out patterns takes the research process to a qualitatively different level.”

The authors say the approach, described in a paper in the 2 December issue of Nature1, could benefit other areas of maths that involve large data sets.

A conversation with AI luminaries | Amazon Science

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, science

Amazon Scholars Michael I. Jordan and Michael Kearns, and Amazon vice president and distinguished scientist Bernhard Schölkopf discuss the future of AI ahead of NeurIPS 2021. Watch the recorded event where these industry luminaries cover a range of topics including the history of ML in the past decade, its social impacts, the role of causal reasoning in ML, and whether or not autonomous, general-purpose intelligence should really be the aim of AI.

Scientists Discover Enormous Black Hole Right Near Our Galaxy

Posted by in category: cosmology

Astronomers from the University of Texas have spotted a gigantic black hole at the heart of our galaxy’s many dwarf satellite galaxies — meaning that, in intergalactic terms, it’s just a stone’s throw away from our own Solar System.

The newly discovered black hole, dubbed Leo I, is roughly the same size as the suspected black hole at the center of the Milky Way.

It also appears to be a bit of an oddball. By measuring the gravitational pull it has on the stars surrounding it, the researchers found that it’s absolutely massive compared to the size of its host galaxy.
