What Is Artificial Intelligence?: A Conversation Between An Ai Engineer And A Humanities Researcher

What Is Artificial Intelligence?: A Conversation Between An Ai Engineer And A Humanities Researcher

Author: Suman (The Open Univ, Uk) Gupta, Peter H (General Electric Research, Usa) Tu Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/08/2020

This book engages with the title question: what is artificial intelligence (AI)? Instead of reiterating received definitions or surveying the field from a disciplinary perspective, the question is engaged here by putting two standpoints into conversation. The standpoints are different in their disciplinary groundings - i.e. technology and the humanities - and also in their approaches - i.e. applied and conceptual. Peter is an AI engineer: his approach is in terms of how to make AI work. Suman is a humanities researcher: his approach is in terms of what people and academics mean when they say 'AI'.A coherent argument, if not a consensus, develops by putting the two standpoints into conversation. The conversation is presented in 32 short chapters, in turn by Suman and Peter. There are two parts: Part 1, Questioning AI, and Part 2, AI and Government Policy. The first part covers issues such as the meaning of intelligence, automation, evolution, artificial and language. It outlines some of the processes through which these concepts may be technologically grounded as AI. The second part addresses policy considerations that underpin the development of AI and responds to the consequences. Themes taken up here include: rights and responsibilities; data usage and state-level strategies in the USA, UK and China; unemployment and policy futures.

Rise of the Self-Replicators

Rise of the Self-Replicators

Author: Tim Taylor, Alan Dorin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/07/2020

Is it possible to design robots and other machines that can reproduce and evolve? And, if so, what are the implications: for the machines, for ourselves, for our environment, and for the future of life on Earth and elsewhere? In this book the authors provide a chronological survey and comprehensive archive of the early history of thought about machine self-reproduction and evolution. They discuss contributions from philosophy, science fiction, science and engineering, and uncover many examples that have never been discussed in the Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Life literature before now. In the final chapter they provide a synthesis of the concepts discussed, offer their views on the field's future directions, and call for a broad community discussion about the significant implications of intelligent evolving machines. The book will be of interest to general readers, and a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners, and historians engaged with ideas in artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics, and evolutionary computing.

Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning, 10th International Conference

Author: Pierpaolo Vittorini Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/07/2020

This book intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry, the education field, and the academic world to report on the latest scientific research, technical advances, and methodologies. The 10th International Conference in Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning is hosted by the University of L'Aquila and is going to be held in L'Aquila (Italy). Initially planned on the 17th to the 19th of June 2020, it was postponed to the 7th to the 9th of October 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The 10th edition of this conference and its related workshops expand the topics of the evidence-based TEL workshops series in order to provide an open forum for discussing intelligent systems for TEL, their roots in novel learning theories, empirical methodologies for their design or evaluation, stand-alone solutions, or web-based ones. This bridge has been realized also thanks to the sponsor of this edition of MIS4TEL: the Armundia Group https://www.armundia.com, the support from national associations (AEPIA, APPIA, CINI, and EurAI), and organizers (UNIVAQ, UNIROMA1, UNIBZ, UCV, UFSC, USAL, AIR institute, UNC, and UNIBA)
