Be sure and read the entire article if this curated snippet interests you. I think it is about time to start programming Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics. What do you think. Comment on our FB page if you have something to say.
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
Chinese AI beat humans in an IQ test – Business Insider
Chinese AI beat humans in an IQ test – Business Insider Computers may be one step closer to human-level intelligence.
Science just took us a small step closer to HAL 9000. A new artificial intelligence (AI) program designed by Chinese researchers has beat humans on a verbal IQ test. Scoring well on the verbal section of the intelligence test has traditionally been a tall order for computers, since words have multiple meanings and complex relationships to one another.

But in a new study, the program did better than its human counterparts who took the test.
The findings suggest machines could be one small step closer to approaching the level of human intelligence, the researchers wrote in the study, which was posted earlier this month on the online database arXiv, but has not yet been published in a scientific journal.
Bin Gao, a computer scientist at Microsoft Research in Beijing, and his colleagues developed the new AI program specifically to tackle the test’s verbal questions.
They used an approach known as deep learning, which involves building up more and more abstract representations of concepts from raw data. (For example, Google uses deep learning in its search and translation features.) The researchers used this method to learn the different representations of words, a technique known as word embedding.
So maybe AI isn’t about to take over the world, as Stephen Hawking and others might have us believe. But at the very least, we’ll end up with computers that are really good at making analogies.
