Machine intelligence will eventually answer most of the questions we have. The question is will we begin to rely on it for just about everything. Machine intelligence will simply process and analyze data much faster than humans. It takes a human 12 years to go through school and a machine may learn the same things in a few months.


Machine outperformed over 600 human teams in three competitions

Computers could soon replace human intuition in many areas - and a new system developed at MIT has shown it can outperform even the smartest of people.

MIT researchers have designed a big-data analysis system which aims to replace human intuition in the search for buried patterns.
The system, called the Data Science Machine, competed against human teams in three data science competitions, and outperformed them.

In the three competitions, the Data Science Machine made predictions that were 94, 96, and 87 percent as accurate as the winning submissions, performing better than 615 of the 906 participating teams.

The machines did it in much less time than humans.


The Data Science Machine completed its prediction algorithms at 'inhuman' speed, taking between two and 12 hours for each submission. Human teams worked on their algorithms for months.


This will be a boon to humanity as machine intelligence make sense of all the data in ways that would take us years to do.

The last thing this world needs is machines making our decisions for us!
He who controls the data being fed to the machine will have the power of a god!!

I think that the use of 'intuition' is incorrect!
'Intuition' bypasses the rickety train of fragile and erroneously dualistic thought (often misunderstood and incorrect) and arrives at the necessary knowledge INSTANTANEOUSLY!
And is always 'correct'.
I have yet to see a mechanical linear, or quantum 'computer', do this.

Amazing... And who better to bring us this news than neoholographic... Sometimes it feels like the Universe is just playing games with me/us I mean how could we know? Forget if the world is flat or not, what if it doesn't even exist!?!!!?!?! Whoa.. My hands are huge... Guess that hippie is kickin' in.

I'm off to go to bed, if mykid is watching Futureama I'll know for sure... Anybody wanna give me some odds?
:down: ?

Agreed. But it's worse than that. We aren't capable of making most of the decisions for ourselves and the people who are working on these things know it. So what ends up happening largely depends on what type of people they are.

But the deeper problem remains as it always has been. If you could design REAL artificial intelligence (meaning a machine with a mind that actually thinks, feels and reasons) it simply wouldn't matter what your intentions are. The machine will necessarily HAVE TO think for itself or it's problem solving capability will be limited to what amounts to a super fast desktop PC.

It's pretty clear what they're trying to do here. They are specifically looking to build autonomous machines that think. Now of course that gets really thorny because emotions come into the picture. If they could simulate human emotions, should they? And if they don't, you still have a machine that thinks and reasons. Whether it feels anything or not, self-preservation is central to intelligent thought. And then you run into another problem. Without feelings, it's basically a super intelligent psychopath. The only thing we humans could conceivably do to contain it is to make it's "life" utterly dependent on us and make absolutely sure it can't get around that limitation.

The problem with that is it's like playing chess with the best chess player in the world. You wouldn't design a machine that can beat you at chess every time unless you wanted to lose.

So either these people are delusional and they think humans can maintain control or they're setting us up knowing the machine will start small and ultimately win.

This pretty much.
We have all them different companys working on different parts of the bot its just a matter of time before it all gets put together..

They aren't making the decisions, they are simply taking vast amounts of data and identifying consistent patterns that might not be obvious to a human. You can have Gigabytes of numeric data in a spreadsheet millions of columns by millions of rows.
These might be interactions of thousands of genes between each other for a thousand different patients.

So the problem is myopia?

It's nice to see some posters on here get it. Autonomous (conscious) bots are not even close to being achievable right now. The idea here is to make an advanced version of what Google has been doing for years...prediction AI. Not just any prediction, but predicting what any human being would want or do based on a set of patterns. As much as people would like to think this is about answering ambiguous "questions", it isn't.

We all know it's not going to solve our struggles as human beings: "how to be a better Dad" or "how to achieve peace". No, this is going to be used to further abuse the mass populace like cattle, as every other gadget and trinket that has come along to beguile and disillusion the sheeple. This is nothing new and it shouldn't be unexpected.

You mean to sell stuff?
Yup. People have been working on doing that for a very long time and computers have made people think they can do it better than ever.

I can see a day approaching where the autonomous
AI team up with the machines to start eliminating
their second class citizens .....

US !


All hail Caesar Skynet !?

I genuinely thought computers could do this year's ago. Has a human been able to compete with a computer for the last 10 years? I know these were groups but still...is this anything new in terms of pattern recognition and algorithms

Yea... the A T S eliza++ bots do a great job directing conversation here.

That was the argument made by "Ted" Kaczynski.
TK was a math professor.
Years ago graduates with a strong math background became somewhat miffed.
Descendents of the babbage engine turned book keeping into a profession anyone that could transcribe digits could perform.

There is a fair play issue that goes beyond, a good recent example story is those Russian hackers that attacked the stock market.




Information embargoed by companies and the government for release at a later time could be valuable to traders looking to gain an edge over other market participants, as could stories being prepared on topics like mergers and acquisitions that move stock prices.

So, what you are telling me, is that you have no clue what 'intuition' is.
That is a common way to express ignorance, but it does nothing to enhance a conversation, or mutual understandings.
Just an emotional ad-hom is rather bereft of any meaningful content.
There's a 'train of thought' for you.
But, please spare me future 'blurts', unless there is something well thought out from which we all might learn something?

All 'meaning' (and "woo woo nonsense") exists in the eye (thought/imagination) of the beholder! In you!
If you see lack of meaning, that 'lack' exists within 'you'!
