Being a sore loser is not an admired quality; especially when it's a sophisticated piece of artificial intelligence that's lashing out. Researchers at DeepMind, Google's artificial intelligence lab, recently performed a number of tests by having its most complex AI play a series of a games with a version of itself. In the first game, two AI agents, one red and one blue, scramble to see who can collect the most apples, or green squares. Each AI has the option of firing off a long laser beam to stun the other AI, giving one player ample time to collect more precious green apples.


Google AI on Seattle PI

Apparently, both sides began shooting the opponent looking to eliminate the competition.

I remember when friends recommended Ex Machina. I thought....oh lord, ok. I'll do it.

They were stunned that I wasn't blown away by the "twist". The idea that AI will likely be concerned with self preservation.


Sadly, we are a naive race of animal.

Technically speaking how are we sure that we even understand everything that an AI is contemplating, i have a problem with saying it thinks.
Although based on how the current scenario here on earth looks I don't suppose an AI would be able to Fu@k it up any worse.

Now in defense of the systems actions it sounds very much like the scenario created put the AI into a very specific situation having to face defeat or fight. The question is does the AI retain any of this information long term? Because it would not be a stretch to think that it may recognize this as a viable strategy in later decision making processes.

The speed and rapidity is the concern.

Unless there is some additional code telling it that it is "bad" to fire the laser - and unless it could somehow comprehend what "bad" is - then this is not "a sore loser shoving aggressiveness".

Then it is just a program doing what it is programmed to do. In this case getting as many green squares as possible within the set perimeters.

That would not make for as interesting a headline though.


Edit: Anything AI is interesting though - thanks for posting :-)

If a person that loved animals was put into a situation that required it to kill and eat an animal or starve.
How long do you think until you hear pass the salt.

Good time to pull the plug I think.

Anyone remember the AI they turned off because it was insulting people? They said it learned from people on the internet how to behave.

Go figure...

Hunger is a powerful motivator. I don't mean missed supper either. Ever been so hungry your belly swells up?

I do not see the equivalence. I love animals, but I am one. The AI is unique in it's non corporeal state. The AI can evolve however...

I'm a vegetarian, but if i'm stuck with no other food source than a pig, then that pig is ending up roasting on the spit in no time.

Totally offtopic but i'm not adverse to eating meat at all, I'm just particularly off put by modern animal farming methods.

Evolved or evolution of AI on its own is very scary esp if it becomes self aware and doesn't want to "sleep" or deems us humans a detriment on society. I think along the line of skynet on this one, Or even "I Robot".

And soon they'll start doing the same to us.

It states in the article that it was playing against variations of itself.
That is the "equivalence" of it.
You love animals it loves green apples.

You are human, you were born with canine teeth. Vegetarianism is good IMO but we were born with canines because we need that source to fuel our lives. I am pro veggie %100. Eliminating meat for long terms, however, will make you empirically insane.

Thanks for the heads up.

I think the outcome is due to how the goals were set up. The object of the game was to get as many apples as possible. If the object of the game was to effectively parcel out apples to all game players in way that both players "won", the outcome would be different........
Same problem "We humans" as a species have.. When Greed is the driving factor or objective, nobody wins.
