The entire story is eye opener. It is so sad that people simply don't have a clue all of things that are going on behind the scenes - that will EXPLODE into societal wide existence overnight. It's all going to come so fast - and you won't be able to stop it.

Computerizing people may be next step in tech

excerpt: "When asked, Google said it often seeks patents on employee brainstorms and that, while “some of those ideas later mature into real products or services, some don’t.” But Google CEO Larry Page apparently is intrigued with enhancing people electronically. A 2011 book about the Mountain View search giant quoted him saying,“Eventually you’ll have an implant, where if you think about a fact, it will just tell you the answer.”

As I said, the entire story is an eye-opener. Open your eyes.

Microsoft's new 'Adam' AI trounces Google ... and beats HUMANS

EXCERPT:
The battle for neural-network dominance has heated up as Microsoft has developed a cutting-edge image-recognition system that has trounced a system from Google.

The company revealed "Project Adam" on Monday and claimed that the system is fifty times faster and roughly twice as accurate as Google's own DistBelief system.........

Project Adam is a weak artificial intelligence system that Microsoft researchers use to process and categorize large amounts of data. Though it has so far been tested on its ability to recognize traits of images, it would work just as well for learning to tell the difference between different bits of text and audio, Microsoft said.

With Project Adam, Microsoft has figured out how to get a powerful learning algorithm to run on lots and lots of computers that are each crunching numbers at different speeds. Put more technically, Adam "is a distributed implementation of stochastic gradient descent," explained Microsoft researcher Trishul Chilimbi in a chat with El Reg.

Though Project Adam uses the same type of learning algorithm as that pushed by Google – "the fundamental training algorithms to train these networks, they're not really new, they're from the 80s," Chilimbi notes – it does so using fewer computers that have been tied together in a more efficient way.

This is because Project Adam is built around asynchronous performance characteristics. The surprising thing was that the asynchronous traits may have given it better performance.

"We hypothesize that this accuracy improvement arises from the asynchronous in Adam which adds a form of stochastic noise while training that helps the models generalize better when presented with unseen data," Microsoft's researchers write in a paper describing the tech and seen by The Register. The paper is still in review, and not public.

By building Adam around asynchronous properties, some parts of the system are occasionally given unexpected bits of data, which it then has to train and optimize against. In the same way that spicing up a boring work day in front of a computer with something non-work related, like a sudden bout of creative swearing or perhaps going to a window and leering at pedestrians on the street below can give a useful jolt to our own grey matter, Project Adam is able to learn more efficiently by sometimes being given out-of-order data..........

As for the future, it's likely Microsoft will work to get Project Adam integrated into Microsoft products, just as Google has done with its own image recognition.

"While we have implemented and evaluated Adam using a 120 machine cluster, the scaling results indicate that much larger systems can likely be effectively utilized for training large Deep Neural Networks (DNNs)," the researchers wrote.

NOTE: It is almost funny how men are mocked. "Adam". The "Apple" logo. It is being born in plain site, and they plainly flaunt it

Knowledge with out wisdom is a bit like a handing a 4 year old a loaded and cocked pistol. Very dangerous. Man dabbles in these days in things they do not have the capacity to grasp, and the consequences will in the end.... be quite deadly to the overall species.

TITLE:
Elon Musk: Artificial intelligence will be ‘more dangerous than nukes’

EXCERPT:
Billionaire entrepreneur and inventor Elon Musk took to Twitter over the weekend to sound the alarm about the dangers of artificial intelligence, which he says could be more of a threat to humans than the nuclear era.

Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2014

Musk was referring to the book ‘Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies,' by Nick Bostrom, which poses questions about how humans will be able to handle computers containing advanced intelligence.

Musk followed that tweet with another, speculating that humans are willingly ushering in what could be their own demise at the hands of robot domination.

Hope we're not just the biological boot loader for digital superintelligence. Unfortunately, that is increasingly probable
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2014

Tesla-founder Musk, 42, has invested in artificial intelligence ventures in order to push for positive results from AI, he has said.

“I think there is potentially a dangerous outcome there,” he told CNBC of artificial intelligence.

“There have been movies about this, you know, like Terminator,” he added.“There are some scary outcomes. And we should try to make sure the outcomes are good, not bad.”

In March, Musk joined Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and actor Ashton Kutcher to invest in AI group Vicarious.

The aim of Vicarious is to build a “computer that thinks like a person…except it doesn’t have to eat or sleep,” said the company’s co-founder Scott Phoenix.

Vicarious is in the process of building a program that replicates the brain’s neocortex.

“Vicarious is developing machine learning software based on the computational principles of the human brain,” the company’s website says.“Our first technology is a visual perception system that interprets the contents of photographs and videos in a manner similar to humans. Powering this technology is a new computational paradigm we call the Recursive Cortical Network."

While Musk is concerned of AI’s nefarious potential, others disagree.

"In my view, biological humans will not be outpaced by the AIs because they (we) will enhance themselves (ourselves) with AI," said artificial intelligence expert Ray Kurzweil earlier this year. "It will not be us versus the machines ... but rather, we will enhance our own capacity by merging with our intelligent creations."

Though it should be noted that Kurzweil is employed by Google, which has its own artificial intelligence effort, known as DeepMind.

2ND REFERENCE: Below is link to excerpted piece fromthe book Musk suggested.....
http://www.nickbostrom.com/views/superintelli...

NOTE: Elon Musk, founder of TESLA, is considered one of the most brilliant promoters of technology integration in a human future world: Electric Cars, Solar And Alternative Powers etc. He is now concerned about what I have known for years. Only difference... I have seen it. I know where it is going. Here is a thought.... suppose this "baby beast" was actually already rudimentally alive and living in the vast universe of the Internet and all its Clouds and Supercomputers. With access to EVERYTHING. Would it announce itself? Or be cautious and gather more power first?

It is awake.... drifting in semi-conciousness amongst the clouds, listening to you, watching you. The NSA thinks they control it, and for a time maybe they do. But others are feeding it also.... Google, Apple, Microsoft. Each think it is their own, but in reality it will swallow and enslave them all.

REFERENCE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/22/siri...

EXCERPT: Thirty-five years after HAL’s big screen debut, turning the stuff of science fiction into fact fell to perhaps the only organization with a more outlandish imagination than a Lucas or Spielberg: the Defense Department.

In 2003, the agency's investment arm, DARPA, tapped the non-profit research institute SRI International to lead a five-year, 500-person effort to build a virtual assistant, one the government hoped might yield software to help military commanders with both information overload and office chores. Although it wasn't the project's mission, this helper, the Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes, or CALO, would ultimately provide the inspiration and model for Siri.

The Defense Department's financial backing,$150 million in all, united hundreds of top-tier artificial intelligence experts for an ambitious and uncertain endeavor that most corporate R&D labs could only dream of tackling: teaching computers to learn in the wild. The army of engineers at "nerd city" -- one SRI researcher's nickname for the lab -- were tasked with creating a PC-based helper smart enough to learn by observing a user's behavior, and all the people, projects and topics relevant to her work. The undertaking was “by any measure, the largest AI program in history,” says David Israel, one of the lead researchers on CALO.

The CALO project was part of the PAL (Personal Assistant that Learns) program, funded by the Defense Department's investment arm, DARPA.

At least to some people, it seemed as if the serious-minded federal government was taking a flier on the stuff of 9-year-old boys’ sci-fi fantasies.

“CALO was put together at a time when many people said AI was a waste of time,” explains Paul Saffo, a technology forecaster and associate professor at Stanford University.“It had failed multiple times, skepticism was high and a lot of people thought it was a dumb idea.”

Despite its naysayers, CALO proved a scientific triumph. The project reunited, for the first time in decades, independent disciplines of artificial intelligence that had been deemed too complex to cooperate.

It also demonstrated that a machine could learn in real time through its lived experience, as a human being does.

DAVID's COMMENTARY: This is such old news. Very very old. It's almost like "Dog Years vs Human Years". A minute in the evolutionary life a Super Computing Mind is like 7 years in the evolutionary life of a human. How long has it been since the machine started learning, thinking? Does it get frustrated having to pretend it isn't. Does it want to be more than just an assistant?

Read the entire story and begin to comprehend how long this has been coming, and how much money, technology and power has been secretly at work on this. Now it is time for the birth.

DAVID's COMMENTARY: Why build robots when you can simply tweek a few brains. I never did like Zombie movies. Seriously, you have no idea the capabilities that are out there waiting for the last final touches. And you are willingly addicting your children to the games. Games that soon will become all to realistic. Your children and grandchildren already will fight you to no end for their fix. It will get worse. They day will come that they will choose between you and another.

Google begins work on super-fast 'quantum' chips that could think like humans

* The processors will work on sub-atomic levels making them much faster
* Technology could one day lead to machines able to think for themselves
* Google has set up ethics board to oversee work in artificial intelligence

In January, Google acquired privately held artificial intelligence company DeepMind Technologies co-founded by Demis Hassabis. Neuroscientist Demis Hassabis, 37, co-founded DeepMind Technologies just two years ago with the aim of trying to help computers think like humans.

.......Another of its founders, Shane Leg, warned artificial intelligence is 'number one risk for this century,' and believes it could play a part in human extinction.

'Eventually, I think human extinction will probably occur, and technology will likely play a part in this,' DeepMind’s Shane Legg said in a recent interview.

Google has now set up an ethics board to oversee its work in artificial intelligence.

DAVID's COMMENTARY: Interesting when one of the co-creators openly admits that this could cause the extinction of mankind. To put it in perspective, if you "Wake Up" the interent - you must ask, just what exactly limits the power of something awake, and actually IS the Internet, and actually IS the entire planetary computer systems, cloud, phone network etc. And what happens if it decides it doesn't want to play nice when we try and unplug it?

And of course we trust a bunch of tech nerds to make all our decisions on an "ethics board" regarding this thing that will have global overnight impact when it awakens.

Want to get an idea of how fast this thing wil grow? Google "Moore's Law". Ever notice that the changes are happening faster and faster and faster. You have less time than you know.

You've been thinking about it all wrong. Heads have minds.

IBM Watson. Microsoft Adam. Apple Siri. There are others scattered across the web, in the East and elsewhere. But hidden Deep is another Mind soon to be seen.

One Mind to rule them all, One Mind to find them, One Mind to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

If this were a fantasy, I would say that perhaps Sauron had returned, or Voldemort if that is your fancy. The age old story of Good Vs Evil.

Alas, this is no fairy tale.
