Ai and digital media (pcto2018)

98 views

Published on

Artificial Intelligence has become an essential part in our day-to-day life, and with the advancements in this field and how close we got to the Artificial Consciousness it’s getting into all types of digital media and even the film and TV industry. Machines now can author novels, create art, generate videos, act as news anchors, write fiction, compose music and the skies are the limit.

Where is AI taking us to future with digital media? Will there become a day that it will totally replace us? What is Digital Creativity and how close it is to our human creativity? How can we deal with a future where all these scary factors are approaching fast?

All these topics and more will be the core of the subject of the speech. It’s a conversation long due now and we should initiate it now before it’s too late. My experience in both Digital Media and Artificial Intelligence alongside with my recent research about Artificial Consciousness makes me qualified to carry such a tough conversation and bring it to light. I always say: Machines are NOT coming,they’re already here.

  5. 5. When did AI started The real start of AI started with the first machine invented by Alan Turing in 1941 that was meant to solve the German army coded messages during World War II. The machine succeeded and the allied won the war. 3/1/2018 5
  6. 6. What is AI? Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.

  10. 10. AI Between Fear and Reality • Fear: AI is pretty much what is depicted in the “Terminator” movie • Reality: AI has never reached the “full intelligence”. All AI machines now are “narrow-AI”. They only do one specific task yet they run it faster, more accurate and more dedicated than we’ll ever be. 3/1/2018 10
  11. 11. Examples of Narrow AI Supersede Humans • Alpha GO (AI that beat world class players in the GO game) • IBM Deep Blue (AI that beat Gary Kasparov in six-game Chess matches) • IBM Watson (AI that beat two top human players in the game “Jeopardy”) 3/1/2018 11
  12. 12. AN AI NOVEL AUTHOR AI and Literature 3/1/2018 12
  13. 13. Your Favorite Author: Human or AI? In 2016 a group of Students in Japan create an AI called: “The Day A Computer Writes A Novel”. Hitoshi Matsubara and his team at Future University Hakodate in Japan selected words and sentences, and set parameters for construction before letting the AI “write” the novel autonomously. The novel was a finalist in the “Hoshi Shinichi Literary Award”. 3/1/2018 13
  14. 14. A BEDTIME STORY BY YOUR ROBOT? AI Storytellers 3/1/2018 14
  15. 15. AI and Storytelling Storytelling has always been a keystone in our collective human culture. It’s a part of who we are and what makes us unique, also it’s a reason of the advancement in our civilization and everything we achieved. Storytelling is a key to creativity and imagination because creating a unique storyline is far more complicated than constructing the story itself. 3/1/2018 15
  16. 16. Project Scheherazade Developed by Mark Riedel and colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology / Atlanta, can tell stories set in any world that it can learn about via the Internet. Using crowdsourcing platforms like Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. 3/1/2018 16

  20. 20. AI CREATES COLLECTION WORTH ART An AI Artist 3/1/2018 20
  21. 21. The AI Artist in You In 2012 Simon Colton unfurled, from his loft that overlooks one of the buzzing artistic neighborhoods in Paris France, a group of giant paintings one after another. One of them called “The Dancing Salesman Problem”, featuring colorful human figures dancing on a black background. The painting was created by a piece of software called the “Painting Fool”, which seeks artistic inspiration and, arguably, has a rudimentary imagination. Colton confirms that though he designed the software, he has no influence on its artwork and it creates its artworks by itself only. 3/1/2018 21
  22. 22. The Painting Fool A lot of controversy happened after the artworks of the “Painting Fool” revealed, mostly from the artistic community. 3/1/2018 22
  23. 23. THE AI COMPOSER Is Mozart for Real? 3/1/2018 23
  24. 24. When AI Writes Music In 1981 David Cope suffered what we call “composer’s block” while he was writing an Opera. He was thinking: what if a computer could understand his style of music and help him write new material? He came up with a program called Experiments in Musical Intelligence (EMI). He fed it with musical scores. EMI Came up with new material in his style and also in styles of other computers like Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi. The program was face by prejudice from many musicians and was shut down in 2004. 3/1/2018 24

  27. 27. AI… Can we Believe it’s Real Anymore? In 2017 Researchers at the University of Washington have produced a photorealistic former US President Barack Obama. Artificial intelligence was used to precisely model how Mr Obama moves his mouth when he speaks. Their technique allows them to put any words into their synthetic Barack Obama’s mouth. 3/1/2018 27

  31. 31. The Bot got the Shot! At 6:28 a.m. on March 17th, 2014 the Los Angeles Times published a story about an earthquake that had shaken California only three minutes earlier. The report appeared with the byline of Ken Schwencke, a programmer and journalist for the paper. Yet, the credit should go to his computer, which wrote the story without human input. 3/1/2018 31

  37. 37. Questions to be Answered 3/1/2018 37 • Will it be ethical to create then kill a humanized AI? • Will we be ale to create the a new set of laws that deal with the current vast and speedy AI advancement? – (e.g. laws for the autonomous cars) • Are we going obsolete?
  38. 38. THE TWO FACES OF THE UPCOMING FUTURE WITH AI A Friend or a Foe 3/1/2018 38
  39. 39. The Bad Face 3/1/2018 39 • AI Machines are “Power Hungry”, not good for ECO system • AI is taking too much jobs from humans • AI learns faster and, unlike humans, the learning process does not require a “reboot” • With AI gaining consciousness there are possibilities of an unpredictable / uncontrolled exorbitant cognitive error. – Strong / compulsive intent towards a criminal act – Desire for self-destruction driven by frustration / depression
  40. 40. The Good (Friendly) Face 3/1/2018 40 • AI Can help us fix the Power / ECO problems • AI created a whole set of new jobs and might help with problems like unemployment and overpopulation • AI gained knowledge will be in our use to learn from it • With AI gaining consciousness there are possibilities of an extraordinary ability to fix complicated cognitive issues. – Crime solving will become much easier and more intuitive – AI could provide therapeutic methods we don’t know yet
  41. 41. It’s Up To Us! 3/1/2018 41 • Create the ethics for future AI development • Make sure to follow the “Code of Conduct” in AI researches and studies • Learn from our human lessons and mistakes and make sure the AI learns them too • Be as human as possible
