As we program machines to be more like humans, how will they know what we value, if we don't know ourselves? The notion of robots gaining consciousness is beginning to become a reality, but the future of human happiness is dependent on our ability to teach machines what we value the most today. Featuring pragmatic solutions drawing on economics, emerging technologies, and positive psychology, Heartificial Intelligence provides a road map to help readers embrace the present and better define their future. Using fictional vignettes to help readers relate to larger concepts, this book paints a vivid portrait of how our lives might look in either a dystopia of robot dominance or a utopia where we use technology to enhance our natural abilities and evolve into a long-lived, super-intelligent, and caring species.

›Technologische Singularität‹ bezeichnet den Zeitpunkt, an dem von künstlicher Intelligenz gesteuerte Maschinen sich fortlaufend selbst so zu verbessern imstande sind, dass sie sich der Beherrschung durch Menschenhand entziehen. Der Robotikspezialist Murray Shanahan beschreibt die unterschiedlichen derzeit weltweit vorangetriebenen technologischen Entwicklungen, die zu einem solchen Ereignis führen können. Er führt auf verständliche Weise in die komplexen Forschungen ein, die unsere nächste Zukunft verändern werden. Aus der Perspektive eines Praktikers beschäftigt er sich mit der Frage, ob künstliche Intelligenz über Bewusstsein verfügen kann, und entwickelt moralische Ansätze zu einem verantwortlichen Umgang mit dieser zumeist als Katastrophenszenario gezeichneten Zukunftsfantasie.

The history of robotics and artificial intelligence in many ways is also the history of humanity’s attempts to control such technologies. From the Golem of Prague to the military robots of modernity, the debate continues as to what degree of independence such entities should have and how to make sure that they do not turn on us, its inventors. Numerous recent advancements in all aspects of research, development and deployment of intelligent systems are well publicized but safety and security issues related to AI are rarely addressed. This book is proposed to mitigate this fundamental problem. It is comprised of chapters from leading AI Safety researchers addressing different aspects of the AI control problem as it relates to the development of safe and secure artificial intelligence. The book is the first edited volume dedicated to addressing challenges of constructing safe and secure advanced machine intelligence. The chapters vary in length and technical content from broad interest opinion essays to highly formalized algorithmic approaches to specific problems. All chapters are self-contained and could be read in any order or skipped without a loss of comprehension.

"Artificial Intelligence (AI) is still seen by some as a controversial area of computer science research. This opinion is reinforced by the perception that AI is about the creation of a model of human intelligence in a computer and the fact that this has not yet been done. In fact, this demonstrably false impression of AI is nowhere further from the truth than in the areas of industry and engineering where AI techniques have become the norm in sectors including computer aided design, intelligent manufacturing, and control." "AI techniques are fast becoming accepted in industry-related areas such as production of technical documentation, planning and scheduling of processes, fuzzy control and analysis (e.g., parameter extraction) of real-time engineering data." "The papers in this volume represent work by both computer scientists and engineers separately and together. They directly and indirectly represent a real collaboration between computer science and engineering, covering a wide variety of fields related to intelligent systems technology ranging from neural networks; knowledge acquisition and representation; automated scheduling; machine learning; multimedia; genetic algorithms; fuzzy logic; robotics; automated reasoning; heuristic searching; automated problem solving; temporal, spatial and model-based reasoning; clustering; blackboard architectures; automated design; pattern recognition and image processing; automated planning; speech recognition; simulated annealing; and intelligent tutoring, as well as various computer applications of intelligent systems including financial analysis, artificial insemination, automated manufacturing, diagnosis, oil discoveries, communications and controls, health delivery, air travel and tourist information processing, and aircraft trajectory planning."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Das LEGO-MINDSTORMS-EV3-Ideenbuch stellt zahlreiche kreative Wege vor, um faszinierende mechanische Konstruktionen mit dem EV3-Set zu bauen. Die einzigartige visuelle Anleitung dazu hat LEGOBaumeister Yoshihito Isogawa genial in Szene gesetzt. Das Buch bietet visuelle Anleitungen für über 180 Mechanismen, Maschinen und Getriebe mit dem MINDSTORMS-EV3-Set. Zu jedem Modell gibt es eine Liste der benötigten Teile, minimalen Text und farbige Bilder aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln, sodass du es auch ohne Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung nachbauen kannst. Du wirst lernen, Radaufhängungen für Autos, lenkbare Raupenfahrzeuge, Ball-Shooter, Robotergreifarme und andere kreative Wunderwerke zu konstruieren. Jedes Modell zeigt einfache mechanische Prinzipien, die du als Komponente für deine eigenen Kreationen verwenden kannst - zum Beispiel um noch raffiniertere Roboter zu erschaffen. Das Beste daran: Jedes Teil, das benötigt wird, um diese Maschinen zu bauen, ist in einem LEGO-Set (# 31313) enthalten!

Mit Mitte dreißig steht Neill Bassett jr. wieder ganz am Anfang. Seine Frau hat ihn abserviert – jetzt muss er sich auf erniedrigende Single-Abende einlassen, nur um Anschluss zu finden. Ein neuer Job im Silicon Valley bringt zunächst zumindest Ablenkung: Bei einem Software-Unternehmen arbeitet Neill ausgerechnet daran, den ersten Computer zu entwickeln, der Gefühle verstehen und äußern kann. Ob ihm das hilft, bei der schrägen Kollegin Rachel zu landen?
