Google unveils AI that learns on its own

'It's able to create knowledge itself': Google unveils AI that learns on its own

In a major breakthrough for artificial intelligence, AlphaGo Zero took just three days to master the ancient Chinese board game of Go ... with no human help

That's just an insane amount of progress to make in a year. I can't even begin to imagine how much scientific research is going to benefit from AI in the future.

AI will be a nightmare.

Like Harvey W, all the sociopaths should be removed from their positions of power in govt, business, and "AI."

This is not good.

Huge development:

Some time ago I had to read a paper on AI by Alan Turing. One quote sounds like it was presciently taken straight from Datalounge. "The consequences of machines thinking would be too dreadful. Let us hope and believe they cannot do so."

Miss r8 always has to be ahead of everything

These are not actual intelligence, but merely trying every option out at an absurdly fast pace.

Sometimes they get lucky, but in thinking sometimes you have to actually lose a battle to win a war.

It's like animals, they can communicate but none so far has used actual grammar which is the first sign to actual talking and thinking like humans. They have had a few primates appear to form complex words but those have been shown on tape review to be animals trying multiple repetitive behaviours till they get the reaction they want from their trainers.

AI will never learn to abstractly think as even the simplest four year old can do, however the speed of calculations will aid humans in abstract decision making.

R11 couldn't be more wrong if he tried, as has been demonstrated in the game of GO, which has nothing to do with calculating all possible positions and everything to do with strategy and point scoring.

I’d like to see AI bots play each other chess.

I wonder if they’d repeatedly end in stale mate.

I think Putin used this kind of technology to take over the world....
