U.S. White House worried about Artificial Intelligence too

White House and AI

5 Comments:

  • As is usual, the White House is about 10 years too late.

    Facebook, Apple, and Google can already predict what their users want before the users know they need it. Google's CEO recently said that everyone will have their own AI personal assistant ( http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2016/04/28/google-ceo-predicts-ai-fueled-future/83651232/ ) accessible through whatever device or interface the user has.

    I am also certain WH.gov is not talking about removing the "fangs" of the NSA's Big Data collections... So between the "web" of the big data corps and the "net" of the NSA we've already been had without a warrant or anything.

  • Is Donald Trump, conceivably, a robot?

  • The algorithmic aspects are more zany than listed in the article. My wife is in between jobs right now (possible contingent offering for an Air Force satellite program gig soon). She and I have noticed an increase in calls from employment specialists that sound like real people, but they are computer generated and designed to reply based on your reply. They sound so real, but they are not.

    I've recently tried to have fun with them by giving out off the cuff (non related) replies to see were the algorithm will take me. For example, I tell the "caller" that I'm interesting in a job that "shovels shit" and a lead on jobs as a back hoe or front end loader comes up.

    I further suspect that the government is quietly worried about the rush towards automation of jobs nationwide. As we automate, unemployment goes up. And if you are trying desperately to decrease unemployment, AI would not be helping the cause. Tie that in to a global economy and the future for human employment looks very dire.

    I read an article yesterday that the first test of a true robotic surgeon was successfully conducted...a pig was the subject, but not that far from operating on humans. So health care is marching in the direction of AI as far as "hands on" delivery approaches.

  • I didn't like that robotic surgery story...I can imagine a malfunction occurring mid-operation and. maybe. that malfunction coordinated by the "robot doctor."

    Scary.
