Rafael has a system that automatically identify targets already for Israel's tower security.

I find it is a slippery slope for such a ban, electronics have been taking workload off humans for a long time especially in warfare... first we have radar to guard, then we have friend or foe systems and now we use automatic target designation, routing and tasking. Considering the future of warfare is all based on networked data collection and action, AND current iteration of AI relies on being networked to be useful.. I can't see how you can not have AI controlled weapons. We had passed the point when we hook cameras and GPS to weapons platforms.

Weapons treaties are only useful if countries sign on and comply with it. US usually doesn't sign on to weapons treaties anyways unless they really need to (eg bullets, cluster munitions etc).

I can't see people in power take this too seriously.

yo man, if humans destiny is to leave behind a more advanced race of robots or hybrids or whatever... i'm happy with that too.

it's like having a son. except at the level of species. giving birth to a new species and dying off and making room for the new.

i'm all for that. as long as something more advanced is left behind... and not the planet completely going extinct LOL.

our robot future ancestors will be better than any human can be. and we will make them in our image. so you can sure bet they'll be really good at destroying shit and taking over stuff.

they'll destroy everything and take over everything faster than we could ever do it. i'll stand proud in heaven (or probably hell) as i watch our future children reap havoc and terror across the cosmos in the name of humanity.

In the matrix AI you can do whatever your imagination wants to do. Full control of the human race so we dont kill the planet but also perserving us. From there they find planets like earth and plant genetic specimens that eventually evolve into another intellegent race, capable of building a new version of AI. Completing the circle of life.

CMU Artificial Intelligence Is Tough Poker Player -CMU News - Carnegie Mellon University

Quote:
As the “Brains Vs. Artificial Intelligence: Upping the Ante” poker competition nears its halfway point, Carnegie Mellon University’s AI program, called Libratus, is opening a lead over its human opponents — four of the world’s best professional poker players. Libratus had amassed a lead of $459,154 in chips in the 49,240 hands played by the end of Day Nine. One of the pros, Jimmy Chou, said he and his colleagues initially underestimated Libratus, but have come to regard it as one tough player.

“The bot gets better and better every day,” Chou said. “It’s like a tougher version of us.”

Brains Vs. AI, which began Jan. 11 at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, pits Chou and three other leading players — Dong Kim, Jason Les and Daniel McAulay — against Libratus in a 20-day contest in which they will play 120,000 hands of Heads-Up, No-Limit Texas Hold’em poker. All four pros specialize in this two-player, unlimited bid form of Texas Hold’em and are considered among the world’s top players of the game.

While the pros are fighting for humanity’s pride — and shares of a $200,000 prize purse — Carnegie Mellon researchers are hoping their computer program will establish a new benchmark for artificial intelligence by besting some of the world’s most talented players.

Libratus was developed by Tuomas Sandholm, professor of computer science, and his Ph.D. student, Noam Brown. Libratus is being used in this contest to play poker, an imperfect information game that requires the AI to bluff and correctly interpret misleading information to win. Ultimately programs like Libratus also could be used to negotiate business deals, set military strategy or plan a course of medical treatment — all cases that involve complicated decisions based on imperfect information.

In the first Brains Vs. AI contest in 2015, four leading pros amassed more chips than the AI, called Claudico. But Sandholm said he’s feeling good about Libratus’ chances as the competition proceeds. “The algorithms are performing great. They’re better at solving strategy ahead of time, better at driving strategy during play and better at improving strategy on the fly,” Sandholm said.

Chou said he and the other pros have shared notes and tips each day, looking for weaknesses they can each exploit.
“The first couple of days, we had high hopes,” Chou said. “But every time we find a weakness, it learns from us and the weakness disappears the next day.”

The change from day to day is not unexpected, Sandholm said. Each night after poker play ends, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s Bridges computer performs computations to sharpen the AI’s strategy. During the day’s game play, Bridges is used to compute end-game strategies for each hand.

“The people at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center have done a great job,” Sandholm said, noting the staff has moved workloads around to enable the computer to be used in the competition. Since the beginning of the contest, the center has increased the number of Bridges’ computer nodes assigned to the poker tournament.

Play begins at 11 a.m. each day and ends after 8 p.m. The public is welcome to observe game play, which is in Rivers’ Poker Room.

Brains Vs. AI is sponsored by GreatPoint Ventures, Avenue4Analytics, TNG Technology Consulting GmbH, the journal Artificial Intelligence, Intel and Optimized Markets, Inc. Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science has partnered with Rivers Casino, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) through a peer-reviewed XSEDE allocation, and Sandholm’s Electronic Marketplaces Laboratory for this event.

-interesting article about the development of AI in Canada to bolster economic growth:

Artificial intelligence new job engine for Canada: feds (Victoria Times Colonist)
Published: 2017-01-26
BUSINESS | B4
By: Mike Blanchfield

They see it as a way of saying "Hasta la vista, baby" to years of sluggish economic growth.

The federal government is expected to use the upcoming federal budget to foster the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence in the hope it will be a springboard to attracting investment and creating a highly skilled new sector of jobs.

Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains said fostering AI is one of the pillars of the government's economic growth strategy. He and others see an opportunity for Canada to exploit its competitive advantage in a technology that is becoming ubiquitous across all sectors - from major companies such as Google or Microsoft to the banking and automotive sectors.

The government's vision of AI-enabled growth is not rooted in the apocalyptic science fiction of Terminator movies where robots destroy humanity (Arnold Schwarzenegger appropriated the Spanish phrase "Hasta la vista, baby" in Terminator 2: Judgment Day before sparking some spectacular explosions).

Instead, Bains and others point to two Canadian "pioneers" in AI - Geoff Hinton at the University of Toronto and Montreal computer scientist Yoshua Bengio. They are recognized world leaders in "deep learning" or "machine learning" - advanced algorithms that allow powerful new supercomputers to essentially think like humans.

The minister is also buoyed by signs of foreign capital coming to Canada such as Microsoft's recent acquisition of the artificial intelligence startup Maluuba, based in Waterloo, Ont., and Montreal. In a recent conversation with Bill Gates, Bains said the Microsoft co-founder acknowledged that Canada was playing "a leadership role" in AI.

"We want to encourage those kinds of investments to continue, to connect with each other on a national level," said Bains.

"If companies are betting on AI, academic institutions are betting on AI, why can't government be a meaningful partner in this area as well?" Tiff Macklem, the dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, said the government needs to take a hands-on approach to help foster the growth of AI in Canada and to keep expertise in the sector from migrating elsewhere.

"I wouldn't use the word 'picking winners'," said Macklem, a former deputy governor of the Bank of Canada.

"I would say where the market is picking a winner, the government has a larger role to play to double down on those winners and provide a path to scale up and secure a position in the global market place before anybody else does it."

The government could help support the development of AI in Canada - and keep its experts from being lured abroad to such places as Silicon Valley - by putting federal money into the creation of an AI institute, said Macklem.

Financial institutions and auto makers are making big investments to develop AI strategies in Canada, he said.

"It's not enough to have the leading research in the world. We have to also be leaders in commercializing that."

Macklem says AI will eventually reap great economic benefits because of its proven ability to revolutionize the speed and efficiency of predictions.

The commercial applications of advanced prediction are staggering, and go far beyond common examples such as helping companies predict what people are going to buy to what stocks might be money-making investments, he said.

"In the next five years, every company is going to need an AI strategy," he said.

But artificial intelligence has its detractors as well.

Renowned author and physicist Stephen Hawking told the BBC three years ago that AI could "spell the end of the human race" when machines eventually turn against their human creators.

An international coalition of non-governmental organizations has created the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, which is pushing for an international treaty to ban autonomous weapons from the battlefields of the future.

Macklem dismisses the doomsday scenarios some associate with AI.

"There's going to be a real issue about whether Canada is at the forefront of this technology or not, because it's coming," he said.

"Wouldn't you rather be a disruptor rather than the victim of disruption?"
