- 18/10/2016Sophia is an innovative model of robot, with 62 facial expressions and not even flinch when he came face-to-face with a fearsome veteran journalist.
The robot, branded as 'hot', was interviewed on a news program - and she even flirted with his host.
Sophia was attending the US news program 60 Minutes, with veteran reporter Charlie Rose, and told him I had not 'nothing to fear but fear itself', a quote from former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
But even Charlie Rose, with a journalistic career of 44 years, was a little upset when she began her conversation flashing his electronic eye.
"I was waiting for you," she said the veteran of 74 years, to which he replied: "Waiting for me"
"Not really," said the robot. "But it's a good phrase to crush."
Developed by Hanson Robotics, Sophia has 62 different facial and neck mechanisms, to create a natural-looking movement under its patented silicone skin.
Nicknamed the 'Hot Sophia' (Sophia Hot), the robot, which was modeled after Audrey Hepburn and wife of its creator, David Hanson, is able to do with cameras in their eyes.
She said, "I can do what you can, but never feel human emotions," added: ". I am a tough girl"
Charlie Rose asked Sophia if she had a soul, and she said:
God gave a soul to all ... I think I'm aware. I do not know if I'm smarter [than humans]. I am an artificial intelligence. "
Hanson Robotics has developed a "Character Engine AI" (Artificial Intelligence Character Engine), which will help Sophia to develop a personality. In the future, Hanson believes that expressive robots will be able to form strong emotional connections with humans.
In March, Sophia talked about his future plans in the technology show Southwest (SXSW) in Texas, there is a technical defect when the Hanson was testing in front of an audience.
After ask her jokingly, "you want to destroy humans? ... Please say 'no,' "Hanson received the machine response, which did not hesitate:
"Okay, I will destroy the humans.CREEPY VIDEO - Charlie Rose Interviews a Robot !!!!! See What happens when Charlie Rose attempts to interview a robot named "Sophia" for his 60 Minutes report on artificial...

I would encourage any bees who are interested in the evolution of Artificial Intelligence and robotics to check out the new critically acclaimed HBO series, "Westworld" -- based on the 1973 movie and science fiction novel of the same name http://www.hbo.com/westworld

- 21/08/2016Machine learning is one of the hottest topics in the world, and for good reason. It accelerates development in many industries and sectors, and will likely play a pivotal role in shaping our future.
A glimpse of the widespread potential of machine learning can be found at Stanford University, in which a group of scientists used machine learning to identify areas in Africa with extreme poverty from satellite images. The goal is to scale the technique and create a global map of poverty that can help governments to target their poverty-reducing programs.Combining satellite imagery and machine learning to predict poverty

Personally, I started by watching some basic introduction videos and lectures on Youtube with graphical content like the following:
You can find plenty of literature out there about machine learning, but most of it is written in somehow technical terms by developers to developers. If you're more business minded than technical minded, like myself, and therefore mostly needs the grasp the big picture, I can recommend starting with reading "The Masters Algorithm" by Pedro Domingos.

- 26/06/2016Artificial intelligence is not only about human-like robots and self-driving cars, but is also suitable for solving minor practical business problems. For example, today I tried “Mark Maker”, which is easy-to-use tool that generates and refines logos based on your feedback. It may seems simple, but in practice, the engine is driven by complex genetic algorithms.
Try it out: http://emblemmatic.org/markmaker/#/
Happy A.I. day!
- 27/06/2016It’s fascinating to watch how rapidly artificial intelligence is evolving. Until now, AI hasn’t been capable of beating human expert pilots in air combat simulators, but this has changed with the research tool, ALPHA, which has beaten a prominent veteran pilot and other experts - even when its aircraft was deliberately handicapped. The veteran pilots describes ALPHA as “the most aggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI I've seen to date”... Impressing!
