Robots that can learn like humans April 9, Researchers say that artificial intelligence AI is now superior to human intelligence in supervised learning using vast amounts of labeled data to perform specific tasks.
Pushing lithium ion batteries to the next performance level December 13, Conventional lithium ion batteries, such as those widely used in smartphones and notebooks, have reached performance limits.

Driving Under the Influence of Incompetent Coding As the recent death of a pedestrian shows there is a legal quagmire awaiting all of us down that road!
Who assumes the burden of liability? How do you punish a machine? Unless it's being paid wages, you can't even fine it. Just as a farmer is responsible if livestock escape it's pen and tramples an innocent person. Or as a slaveowner was responsible for the activities of his slaves. In the end, dollars to doughnuts, I'm betting the Corporate State protects it's own.
And us sucker taxpayers will be assuming the burden. Factory robots have been around for decades. They have killed many a worker until safety got better. The unfortunate operator, owner, manufacturer, employer have always been candidates to bear some civil and or criminal responsibility, potentially shared. So the legal side is not very complicated but it One thing that is certain, is that the robot will not be held responsible.
If you want to find out about a contrasting situation, you should investigate the medieval trials of animals. The pig was trialed, defended by a lawyer, convicted, and hanged. Societal order was restored.ihatestaging.userengage.io/en-la-boca-de-los-caimanes-qu-es.php
Ask the experts: will robots take over the world?
The essential question was: We still ask the same questions. It's called cloud cuckoo world A humanoid fully responsible robot is accountable under law, or are you proposing rrwillsj and eljo that the robot has immunity under law and when it kicks you out of house and home and breaks your arms when you protest as it explains to you it has immunity from prosecution, your immediate reaction will be, "Sorry i did not realise here are the keys for car" and as you walk away it strip your clothes of your back.
This is why science has such a bad intellectual reputation nowadays! If robots develop their own culture and want to expand their version of civilization they're not likely to want to stay on Earth any longer than necessary. Earth doesn't hold even 0. Hopefully they'll be nice enough to take some of us along for the ride. Intellectual mentality of reasoning Oh yes,rrwillsj when you come home from work for the umpteenth time and your robot explains to you it has just vandalised the neighbourhood and shows the overflowing larder it raided from the supermarket and has just smashed your car up, I can hear you saying, there, there dear as police take you down to jail on the 3 strikes and you're out, to serve life imprisonment.
Cloud cuckoo world just does not even begin to explain this intellectual mentality of reasoning! How are they going to that? Rockets cannot go further than the moon, it's a year to get mars and there are not the resources for robots to replicate, they need highly advanced factories which rockets cannot take to mars. The reason why we're stuck on this planet is because rockets are inadequate. Machines kill people all the time without being robots. If a complex and powerful machine malfunctions, someone can get killed, even if it's as simple as a microfracture in a jet engine compressor which causes the compressor to shatter and send shrapnel through the walls of the aircraft cabin.
That happened just the other day and no one blames automation. As for this article I think that the supposed "five reasons" are pretty weak; there are much stronger arguments available, starting with noting that animal-level intelligence appears to be capable of feats robots are decades if not centuries from attaining.
Animals kill people too, in case no one noticed. Try not to hyperventilate too much. Rockets were sufficient to send Voyager to Jupiter with no gravity assists so that complaint is a non-starter. Rockets are inadequate to send humans very far, a robot is very patient and does not need to use any resources beyond a clock while it is in transit. Robots are being used already to build and assemble other robots, AI assists in design.
Look forward 20 years an automated factory to build deep space mining and refining robots is easily within the bounds of possibility.
Robots only work because there mechanics and quantum circuits are next to advanced electronic factories here on earth, take them away from these factories out of earths orbit, there is now way of fixing their mechanics and electronics and fail they will - Just like mechnical diggers getting a compressed fluid leak when the boss phones for more hydraulic fluid pipes!
Now where do you buy those on mars or outer space "Rockets cannot go further than the moon, it's a year to get mars" So you contradict yourself in the first sentence. Rockets are inadequate to send humans very far, a robot is very patient and does not need to use any resources beyond a clock while it is in transit.. I think there's other ways. Robots do not need to copy animal or human reasoning in order to 'beat' them.
Robots can play to their strengths which is The best human logic is of now use against overwhelming power. That's because it would create extra liabilities for the manufacturer - problems they may or may ot be able to solve. Things like autopilot failures leading to a plane crash are always explained or at least partially blamed as "human error" to avoid admitting that the system is fundamentally unsound and unsafe, and these accidents are an inevitable consequence of the operation of the "robot". Even if the pilots could do nothing, the final report never fails to mention "pilot error".
Everyone knows the machine is by design "good enough", and some accidents will happen, but to admit it directly would hurt business. Mechanical robots are at a great disadvantage against biological things because they do not heal themselves, so the application of speed and power leads to short lifespan of the components, or else they have to be over-engineered to such a degree that the robot becomes a lumbering beast with ridiculous energy demands. Many don't consider that our bones and muscles are only as strong as they need to be, that every time you take a hike, you sustain damage that needs to heal over the next 24 hours.
A car engine for example is designed to run for little over 5, hours , km 40 kph. Even before that, you've got all sorts of parts to replace like water pumps and clutch plates. That's little over 3 years if it was working a 9-to-5 job like we can. Furthermore, the question of robots replacing humans in anything but mechanically routine jobs is moot because of the question of AI. Artificial Intelligence is based on fundamentally flawed ideas of what it means to be intelligent, so the robots are really fragile in their behaviour - they can't perform the tasks we put for them.
For example, in the case of the Boston Dynamics robots in the video, those guys are under radio control by human operators - they're not actually smart enough to open doors for each other. Nonetheless, each electronic critter brims with uniqueness, purpose, and emotion. Jason Deamer, the film's character art director, recalled how the team figured out ways to communicate WALL?
E's eyes," he said. He suddenly became aware that if he tilted them slightly, you got a very different look and feeling out of them. That became one of the key design elements for the main character.? To imagine what humans would look like after atrophying for hundreds of years in space, the team talked to NASA experts about the effects of zero gravity on the body. The film includes many nods to science and science fiction. Later scenes with the human spaceship's automatic pilot, named Auto, were reminiscent of HAL in In a gesture of recognition to the film Alien , the producers cast Sigourney Weaver as the ship's computer.
The idea for Wall-E started with the question, "What if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off?
I was immediately hooked and seduced by the idea of a machine falling in love with another machine. I think there will be robotic entities with superhuman intellect within a few centuries. Post-human intelligence whether in organic form, or in autonomously-evolving artefacts will develop hyper-computers with the processing power to simulate living things, even entire worlds. Maybe these kinds of super-intelligences already exist elsewhere in the universe. Fiction and science fiction is so important for everyday life.
In Western culture we tend to think there is reality on the one hand, and fiction and fantasy on the other.

This separation does not exist in all cultures, but science and technologists made this deliberate separation because they wanted to carve out the sphere of their work. In doing this they denigrated lots of valuable knowledge, such as myth and metaphor, that might be important in developing a richer model. But the divide is not so clear cut and that is why the worlds seem to collide at times. In some cases we need to bring these different understandings together to get a whole perspective.

Science fiction has painted a vivid spectrum of possible futures, from cute and helpful robots Star Wars to dystopian I Robot robotic societies. Interestingly, almost no science fiction envisages a future without robots. This was first published on the website of the University of Cambridge.
