Des cellules solaires en spray. « Mon rêve est qu’un jour deux techniciens portant des sacs à dos comme dans le film Ghostbusters viennent chez vous pulvériser le toit de votre maison. » Avec des bombes de spray dans leur besace, les techniciens qu’imagine Illan Kramer, professeur à l’université de Toronto (Canada), ne sont pas des artistes, comme ceux qui peignent des fresques grandeur nature sur les murs des centrales ou barrages d’EDF.

The AI Revolution: Road to Superintelligence - Wait But Why

Buy it here. (Or see a preview.) Note: The reason this post took three weeks to finish is that as I dug into research on Artificial Intelligence, I could not believe what I was reading. It hit me pretty quickly that what’s happening in the world of AI is not just an important topic, but by far THE most important topic for our future. So I wanted to learn as much as I could about it, and once I did that, I wanted to make sure I wrote a post that really explained this whole situation and why it matters so much. We are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth. — Vernor Vinge What does it feel like to stand here? It seems like a pretty intense place to be standing—but then you have to remember something about what it’s like to stand on a time graph: you can’t see what’s to your right. Which probably feels pretty normal… The Far Future—Coming Soon This works on smaller scales too. 1. Laurent Alexandre : "La stratégie secrète de Google apparaît…".

Paru dans leJDD Selon Laurent Alexandre, Google est le premier embryon d'intelligence artificielle au monde.

The AI Revolution: Our Immortality or Extinction

Part 1 is here. PDF: We made a fancy PDF of this post for printing and offline viewing. Buy it here. (Or see a preview.) We have what may be an extremely difficult problem with an unknown time to solve it, on which quite possibly the entire future of humanity depends. — Nick Bostrom Welcome to Part 2 of the “Wait how is this possibly what I’m reading I don’t get why everyone isn’t talking about this” series. Part 1 started innocently enough, as we discussed Artificial Narrow Intelligence, or ANI (AI that specializes in one narrow task like coming up with driving routes or playing chess), and how it’s all around us in the world today.

This left us staring at the screen, confronting the intense concept of potentially-in-our-lifetime Artificial Superintelligence, or ASI (AI that’s way smarter than any human, across the board), and trying to figure out which emotion we were supposed to have on as we thought about that.← open these i.e. Artificial Intelligence @ MIRI.

La conception algorithmique automatise-t-elle nos vies. Alexis Lloyd (@alexislloyd) est la directrice créative du laboratoire du New York Times, la structure de R&D du journal, créé en 2006, où elle est à la tête d’une petite équipe multidisciplinaire regroupant chercheurs, designers et informaticiens… Son équipe est chargée de construire des prototypes pour observer leur impact sur la production et la consommation de l’information.

Mais elle n'est pas venue sur la scène de Lift pour nous parler de ce que fait le NYTimes Lab (dommage). Elle est venue nous parler de l'impact de l'innovation technologique sur la culture. Nous ne sommes pas les maîtres des appareils que nous utilisons "Pour innover, il faut comprendre et déchiffrer les indicateurs de changements autour de nous", estime la designer. Mais ce n’est pas si simple, car si on sait où va l’innovation technologique, il est plus difficile de saisir l’innovation culturelle et sociale. Image : Alexis Lloyd sur la scène de Lift.
