Managing the Digital Firm

  1. 1. Michael Fine<br />Artificial Intelligence and The Singularity<br />1<br />
  2. 2. What is Intelligence?<br />Complex to define. Why?<br />What do we know as being intelligent?<br />Computational Procedures.<br />General Characteristics of the human of thinking.<br />Autonomy<br />Perception<br />Reasoning<br />Cognitive Dissonance – Theory?<br />Attitudes<br />Beliefs<br />Awareness of ideas<br />Our Conscience<br />Internal feelings<br />2<br />
  3. 3. What is Artificial Intelligence?<br />Artificial Intelligence is a gateway towards science and engineering of making intelligent machines or smart computer programs.<br />Enables machines to understand the human intelligence. <br />Science of making a computer or machine perform a task that requires human knowledge. <br />AI has the potential of surpassing the human intellect. <br />3<br />
  4. 4. Singularity<br />Is a theory that of accelerating change, a future point in which progress throughout history humanity may suggest faster and more define changes in the future.<br />Technological Singularity<br />Describes a theory that there is a future point technology that takes place during a period of accelerating change sometime after the creation of a super-intelligence.<br />An increase in the rate of technological progress throughout history, which may suggest faster and more profound change in the future.<br />4<br />
  5. 5. Accelerating Change<br />Progress throughout history, can suggest faster and more profound change in the future. Accelerating Change will increase the rate: <br />Technological<br />Social<br />Cultural <br />Accelerating change, possesses its own popularity during modern times and is closely associated with the ideas and writings of many theorist focusing on Technological Singularity.<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Super-intelligence<br />Artificially enhanced human brain, a computer program or a device that is much smarter, more creative and wiser than any current or past existing human brain.<br />The uniqueness continues to enhance its own capability and intelligence.<br />Singularity.<br />Accelerating Change.<br />Complimenting the concept accelerating change is the super intelligence. If it wasn’t for the theory of the super intelligence, accelerating change would not happen.<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Artificial Intelligence Machines and Software<br />Kernel Machines<br />Mathematical programming and process prediction.<br />Machine Learning in Games<br />computers can learn to get better at playing games.<br />Using heuristic search algorithms, neural networks, genetic algorithms, temporal and differences. <br />Symantec Intelligence Updater<br />Smart Network Routers<br />For early detection of packet-loss, uses the following to fight against packet-loss:<br />Explicit congestion notification<br />Active queue-management techniques.<br />Diagnostic Devices for your car, computer, 3G phone.<br />Robotics<br />Roomba<br />Medical<br />Laser Cutting<br />7<br />
  8. 8. Advantages<br /> The ability to perform extended tasks at greater serial speeds than conscious human thought.<br />200 calculations per second<br />Capacity<br />24/7/365<br />The human brain does not physically integrate well, externally or internally, with contemporary hardware and software.<br />Singularity<br />Accelerated Change<br />Super-Intelligence<br />8<br />
  9. 9. Disadvantages<br />We loose…<br />The ability to analyze and modify every design level and feature.<br />The ability to communicate and share information<br />Example: abilities, concepts, memories, thoughts.<br />The ability to control what is and what is not learned or remembered.<br />The ability to create new programming, hand-ons, design.<br />The ability to learn new information rapidly.<br />Makes us…<br />Lazy<br />Outsource Worthy<br />9<br />
