  61. 61. Computer Passes Turing Test for First Time Eugene Goostman seems like a typical 13-year-old Ukrainian boy, at least that's what a third of judges at a Turing Test competition thought recently. Goostman says that he likes hamburgers and candy and that his father is a gynecologist, but it's all a lie. This boy is a program created by computer engineers led by Russian Vladimir Veselov and Ukrainian Eugene Demchenko. That a third of judges were convinced that Goostman was a human in unrestricted conversation is significant as at least 30 percent of judges must be swayed for a computer to pass the famous Turing Test. The test, created by legendary computer scientist Alan Turing in 1950, was designed to answer the question "Can machines think?" and is a well-known staple of artificial intelligence studies.

  63. 63. Saudi Arabia is the First Country to Grant Citizenship to a Robot An empty-eyed humanoid named Sophia has become the first robot to be granted citizenship in the world. Saudi Arabia bestowed citizenship on Sophia ahead of the Future Investment Initiative, held in the kingdom's capital city of Riyadh on Wednesday. "I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction," Sophia told the audience, speaking on a panel. "This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship.“ It didn't elaborate on the details of its citizenship. At the event, Sophia also addressed the room from behind a podium and responded to questions from moderator and journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin. Questions pertained mostly to Sophia's status as a humanoid and concerns people may have for the future of humanity in a robot-run world. (10/26/17)

  65. 65. Artificial Intelligence: Should We Be as Terrified as Elon Musk and Bill Gates? Elon Musk and Bill Gates have been as fearless as any entrepreneurs and innovators of the past half century. They have eaten big risks for breakfast and burped out billions of dollars afterward. But today, both are terrified of the same thing: Artificial intelligence. In a February 2015 Reddit AMA, Gates said, "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern ... and [I] don't understand why some people are not concerned.“ In a September 2015 CNN interview, Musk went even further. He said, "AI is much more advanced than people realize. It would be fairly obvious if you saw a robot walking around talking and behaving like a person... What's not obvious is a huge server bank in a vault somewhere with an intelligence that's potentially vastly greatly than what a human mind can do. And it's eyes and ears will be everywhere, every camera, every device that's network accessible... Humanity's position on this planet depends on its intelligence so if our intelligence is exceeded, it's unlikely that we will remain in charge of the planet.“ To be fair, others such as Stephen Hawking and Steve Wozniak have expressed similar fears, which lends credibility to the position that Gates and Musk have staked out.

  71. 71. Low cost genome sequencing is expected to revolutionize healthcare among other aspects of life. iNanoBio is developing a novel sensor device for high speed genome sequencing with technology from Arizona State University (ASU). Sequencing 3 billion bases in a short period of time is an extremely complex task. Various strategies utilize piecemeal sequencing and massively parallel techniques for high throughput readout. Sequencing using nanopores is a promising approach, but most often requires development of advanced methods for slowing down the DNA as it translocates through the nanopore. Small read lengths, need for elaborate sample preparation and complex data processing are required, which in-turn add to the cost of sequencing. Rather than slowing down the DNA as it translocates through a nanopore iNanoBio’s strategy is to sequence the DNA at high speed using their FET nano sensor devices. Field effect transistor sensors can have high switching frequencies of up to 1 GHz or more, which enables faster signal acquisition with minimal background noise. They expect sensing of individual bases at higher speeds, with larger signal to noise ratios, than when using other strategies. iNanoBio Exponential Nanosensor Technology for Chemical & Biological Sensing Aiming for Low Cost $100 Genomic Sequencing Using Nanopores

  78. 78. Will Transcendence Transcend Science Fiction? According to futurists, the Singularity will be the singular most important incident to ever unfold. The term describes technology’s version of a black hole: that incredible moment when artificial intelligence will surpass our own. Transcendence is the newest dystopian interpretation of this A.I. benchmark. The reviews have been less than glowing, but it still brings a pivotal question into sharp focus: Are we nearing true machine intelligence? Transcendence tells the story of a dying technology visionary, played by Johnny Depp, who uploads his brain to a computer right before he dies. The story takes place in the present, compelling many to question the possibility of an apocalyptic singularity to transpire. While the technology depicted in Transcendence is still very much science fiction, it alludes to some remarkable developments that are unfolding in the artificial intelligence community.

  95. 95. Digital Life in 2025 - Less-Hopeful Theses • Dangerous divides between haves and have-nots may expand, resulting in resentment and possible violence. • Abuses and abusers will ‘evolve and scale.’ Human nature isn’t changing; there’s laziness, bullying, stalking, stupidity, pornography, dirty tricks, crime, and those who practice them have new capacity to make life miserable for others. • Pressured by these changes, governments and corporations will try to assert power and at times succeed as they invoke security and cultural norms. • People will continue sometimes grudgingly to make tradeoffs favoring convenience and perceived immediate gains over privacy; and privacy will be something only the upscale will enjoy. • Humans and their current organizations may not respond quickly enough to challenges presented by complex networks. • Most people are not yet noticing the profound changes today’s communications networks are already bringing about; these networks will be even more disruptive in the future. Advice: Make Good Choices Today • Foresight and accurate predictions can make a difference; ‘The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Source: Pew Research Center, 3/14
