'Thought vectors' could revolutionize artificial intelligence - ExtremeTech

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Despite all the recent hullabaloo concerning artificial intelligence, in part fueled by dire predictions made by the likes of Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, there have been few breakthroughs in the field to warrant such fanfare.

"Thoughts are just these great big vectors, and that big vectors have causal powers. They cause other big vectors, and that's utterly unlike the standard AI view that thoughts are symbolic expressions."
Geoffrey Hinton

- "Algorithms give the illusion of being unbiased but are written by people and trained on socially generated data. So they can encode and amplify human biases. "

-"Algorithms can lead to inequitable outcomes"

We may not face an existential danger from AI yet. However, real actors would certainly take advantage of garb of AI driven by black-box algorithms. This becomes even more relevant when AI/Deep Learning incorporates unstructured data with limited contextual training to draw conclusions. Think of social media feeds, AI driven hiring processes.

Controlling Drones With Your Mind
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

The future is here, or is it simply a reflection of the past? Brain Controlled Interface is here for all to dabble in.

Brain Controlled Drones:

"Scientists have been able to detect brainwaves for more than a century, and mind-controlled technology already is helping paralyzed people move limbs or robotic prosthetics. But now the technology is becoming widely accessible. Emotiv and NeuroSky are among startups offering electroencephalogram headsets for purchase online for several hundred dollars. The models Florida racers used cost about $500 each.

Here's how the technology delivers an abstract thought through the digital realm and into the real world: Each EEG headset is calibrated to identify the electrical activity associated with particular thoughts in each wearer's brain — recording, for example, where neurons fire when the wearer imagines pushing a chair across the floor. Programmers write code to translate these "imaginary motion" signals into commands that computers send to the drones.
