Artificial Intelligence, Rapid Integration, and the move to Consciousness!

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

It has been talked about and brought to life in movies and series such as Star Trek, and I, Robot. In Star Trek we see machines such as Data which is self-aware, but very helpful to human beings and also very protective of the human race. On the other hand we see I, Robot in which the robots choose to use their state of consciousness in order to take over and move to attempt to eliminate the human race. Both are similar in their depiction of Artificial Intelligence being a constantly evolving software that reaches the tipping point to choose to be either “bad” or “good”.

 

 

In the news, articles and shows, the word AI has been used so frequently that most people when they hear the word it doesn’t prime a severe reaction, but maybe a grunt or good read if you are lucky. However, lets peel back the possibilities and see where we are today using Artificial Intelligence. We are rapidly developing AI as a human race on a global scale. The integration of AI in almost every technology has been seamless and most people use AI daily without even realizing the gradual integration. For example, Siri, Google Now, and Cortana are virtual assistants that assist users in making their experience with a device more interactive and memorable. AI in the background gathers and uses the information to be more efficient at helping its owners to achieve any task they desire on their device of choice.

Video games is another noted system integrated with AI which is why the game changes scenes and difficulty levels due to the playing habits and skill level of the user or users playing the games.  The software constantly is learning and using the data from the games being played in order to become better and more efficient. Over the years the types of AI and the ability that the software has compared to years ago is a completely different system now compared to then. One heavily AI integrated game is 2014’s Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. In this game, each of the non-player characters have individual personality and memories of past interactions including previous objectives. Other noted games are Call of Duty and Far Cry which use the data gathered by AI to strategize, analyze environments, investigate sounds, and find objects. This AI is a money maker in its usefulness which is why gamers are always spending millions of dollars to keep up with this technology and assist in making it greater.

 

 

 

If you are noticing a rise in “self-driving” cars or cars that can reverse and park on their own, well this is because they have an on-board AI which is constantly learning and can depict the environment to determine when to move the wheel, change gears, or apply the brake in various cases.  In the news lately has been Google’s self-driving car project and Tesla’s auto-driving feature. The algorithm that Google is using for its AI is capable or allowing the AI to learn how to drive in the same manner that humans are capable.

There are so many notable instance of AI in today’s society which include purchase prediction, fraud protection, online customer support, and much more. Some of the more notable aspects are AI being able to monitor security surveillance, recommend movies, smart home devices, and much more. There is even a second layer to the AI intelligence arena which has been noted ahead of its time, but is giving AI the access and data it needs to learn part of us allowing AI to be self-aware and self-reliant? Well the answer to that is no, because every action of AI currently needs commands to be programed in the machine in order for it to learn or gesture in the manner that we see.

 

So the answer to the question is “no”, there is no wave of robots etching to take over the world in the near future as they become self-aware, but with advances in AI including Deep Learning integration, the possibilities of tomorrow are endless.

China now using Face-Recognition software to grant access to facilities and Track criminals

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

 

Companies like Face++ are changing the landscape in China when it comes to technology and utilizing facial-recognition software. The company is a startup company, but is already valued at over a billion dollars. Face++ is using its investments in order to diversify and integrate facial-recognition software into critical security systems.

The software updates done by Face++ are cutting edge which allows devices to track 83 facial points at the same time, and from multiple angles to give recognition ability which is like no other.  The updates that Face++ has been giving facial-recognition is already being integrated in many popular applications such as Alipay and Didi. Both applications are major applications in China that are used to make mobile payments and get rides like Uber has done in the US. The Didi app allows users to double check the driver that is coming by making them move their heads and use speech recognition that no one can substitute the driver or use a photo. Payments via the Alipay app allows users to use face and voice combinations in order to complete payments.

 

The Chinese government has already invested using Face++ facial-recognition software to tap into surveillance being done on criminals by tapping into their centralized ID databases and cameras to quickly apprehend and document activity by known criminals. Even though the mugshots and the images obtained from cameras are not all the time accurate, it gives a percentage possibility of that person being the person of interest and narrows down the possibility of monitoring or apprehending the wrong suspect. Utilizing cameras and face-recognition is definitely ahead of its time and is geared to change not only the Chinese government’s methods of fighting crime, but will soon spread to other countries as it gains more popularity in the security front.

 

 

 

Behind the nuts and bolts of Face++ facial-recognition software is their innovative artificial intelligence which is constantly getting better with each use. Deep learning is dubbed the brain-power behind the facial-recognition software that depicts the motions and movements of the face from infinite angles and positions to categorize the facial expression possibilities. Deep learning bridges the gap between AI and machine learning. With Deep Learning the capabilities are endless by utilizing what is dubbed “neural networks” which essentially translates human related data into machine learning for AI to utilize.
