A new digital ecology is evolving, and humans are being left behind

You mean something similar to Valve's fee on steam's marketplace? They take 10% cut out of every transaction, no matter how big or small. Unfortunately, it (the Tobin tax mentioned in the article ) is being resisted by some very powerful people. Not really, that's more akin to the capital gains tax already in place. Short term sells (less than a year between purchase and selling) are taxed as regular income, while long term sells (more than a year between purchase and selling) are taxed at a significantly lower rate. The problem is that because these taxes are based on percentage, its fairly easy for the algorithms to overcome the higher tax rate with small margins and massive trade volume. For the algorithms, however, this is a major roadblock. The added overhead of the fee means that this method will not work as well if at all.

Autopoietic Computing

Just as biological entities have DNA which operates on the same principle of self replication, the same fundamental process which takes place in biological organisms can take place in artificial lifeforms. This fundamental phenomena allows robots to essentially create clones of themselves. Computing software protocols like Bitcoin rely on decentralized self replicating nodes to create a unified shared blockchain which acts as the public ledger for the network. Quantum Machine Learning Singularity from Google, Kurzweil and Dwave ? Dwave's 512 qubit system can speedup the solution of Google's machine learning algorithms by 50,000 times in 25% of the problem cases.

This could make it the fastest system for solving Google's problems. Meet the algorithm that can learn “everything about anything” The most recent advances in artificial intelligence research are pretty staggering, thanks in part to the abundance of data available on the web.

Meet the algorithm that can learn “everything about anything”

We’ve covered how deep learning is helping create self-teaching and highly accurate systems for tasks such as sentiment analysis and facial recognition, but there are also models that can solve geometry and algebra problems, predict whether a stack of dishes is likely to fall over and (from the team behind Google’s word2vec) understand entire paragraphs of text. (Hat tip to frequent commenter Oneasum for pointing out all these projects.) The Future of Machine Intelligence. Ben Goertzel March 20, 2009 In early March 2009, 100 intellectual adventurers journeyed from various corners of Europe, Asia, America and Australasia to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Arlington Virginia, to take part in the Second Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, AGI-09: a conference aimed explicitly at the grand goal of the AI field, the creation of thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond.

The Future of Machine Intelligence

While the majority of the crowd hailed from academic institutions, major firms like Google, GE, AT&T and Autodesk were also represented, along with a substantial contingent of entrepreneurs involved with AI startups, and independent researchers.

Identifying emotions based on brain activity and machine-learning techniques

Kassam et al. /Carnegie Mellon University) Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University have identified which emotion a person is experiencing based on brain activity. The study, published in the June 19 issue of PLOS ONE (open access), combines functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and machine learning to measure brain signals to accurately read emotions in individuals. Led by researchers in CMU’s Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the findings illustrate how the brain categorizes feelings, giving researchers the first reliable process to analyze emotions. Until now, research on emotions has been long stymied by the lack of reliable methods to evaluate them, mostly because people are often reluctant to honestly report their feelings. As Machines Get Smarter, Evidence They Learn Like Us. The brain performs its canonical task — learning — by tweaking its myriad connections according to a secret set of rules.

As Machines Get Smarter, Evidence They Learn Like Us

To unlock these secrets, scientists 30 years ago began developing computer models that try to replicate the learning process. Now, a growing number of experiments are revealing that these models behave strikingly similar to actual brains when performing certain tasks. Researchers say the similarities suggest a basic correspondence between the brains’ and computers’ underlying learning algorithms. The algorithm used by a computer model called the Boltzmann machine, invented by Geoffrey Hinton and Terry Sejnowski in 1983, appears particularly promising as a simple theoretical explanation of a number of brain processes, including development, memory formation, object and sound recognition, and the sleep-wake cycle. Newest 'machine-learning' Questions. An Introduction to Deep Learning (in Java): From Perceptrons to Deep Networks. Baidu says its massive deep-learning system is nearly complete. Chinese search engine company Baidu is working on a massive computing cluster for deep learning that will be 100 times larger than the cat-recognizing system Google famously built in 2012 and that should be complete in six months, Baidu Chief Scientist and machine leaning expert Andrew Ng told Bloomberg News in an article published on Wednesday.

Baidu says its massive deep-learning system is nearly complete

The size Ng is referring to is in terms of neural connections, not sheer server or node count, and will be accomplished via heavy use of graphics processing units, or GPUs. That Baidu is at work on such a system is hardly surprising: Ng actually helped build that system at Google (as part of a project dubbed Google Brain) and has been one of the leading voices in the deep learning community for years.

He joined Baidu in May, working out of the company’s Silicon Valley office, in order to help advance its capabilities in artificial intelligence. Google preps wave of machine learning apps. High performance access to file storage Google is preparing to unleash a wave of apps that get intelligence from its mammoth machine learning models.

Google preps wave of machine learning apps

The apps will all rely on the neural networks Google has been developing internally to allow its systems to automatically classify information that has traditionally been tough for computers to parse. This includes human speech or unlabeled images, said Jeffrey Dean a fellow in Google's Systems Infrastructure Group who helped create MapReduce and GFS, to the GigaOm Structure in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Remembering objects lets computers learn like a child - tech - 05 June 2013. Video: Watch a computer recognise familiar objects ALWAYS seeing the world with fresh eyes can make it hard to find your way around. Giving computers the ability to recognise objects as they scan a new environment will let them navigate much more quickly and understand what they are seeing. Renato Salas-Moreno at Imperial College London and colleagues have added object recognition to a computer vision technique called simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM). Twitter Data Analytics.

Feedback is welcome. Site Map: Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning: Contents. To create a super-intelligent machine, start with an equation. Intelligence is a very difficult concept and, until recently, no one has succeeded in giving it a satisfactory formal definition. Most researchers have given up grappling with the notion of intelligence in full generality, and instead focus on related but more limited concepts – but I argue that mathematically defining intelligence is not only possible, but crucial to understanding and developing super-intelligent machines.

From this, my research group has even successfully developed software that can learn to play Pac-Man from scratch. Let me explain – but first, we need to define "intelligence".
