MIT has created a new AI that we sincerely hope never escapes into the wild because this IS how you get Skynet. This AI is called Norman and it is a psychopath. How did Norman turn into a psycho? All the image data MIT fed Norman came from what it calls "an infamous subreddit" that the researchers refuse to name specifically due to its graphic Read more...
Google caused a bit of a firestorm after details leaked that it was forging a relationship with the United States Department of Defense to develop AI software for aerial drones. However, it's important to note that Google wasn't going to be involved with developing AI that would powerkiller Skynet robotson the... Read more...
When we think of Boston Dynamics, we think of a company that is bringing us even closer to Skynet. The company produces robots that are capable of incredible feats that make them move and function more like a human (in the case ofAtlas) or like a dog (withSpotMini). The company is cranking it up another notch... Read more...
Do you want Skynet, because this is how you get Skynet! The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), a leading research university in South Korea, came under heavy fire this week from many leading researchers in the artificial intelligence (AI) field for its work with local defense...

We often joke about the mechanical uprising of intelligent electronics, but behind the laughter is a bit of nervousness. Should the sci-fi scenario ever come to fruition, humans are royally screwed. Proof of this exists in spades at Boston Dynamics. Last week the robotics firm demonstrated a pair of SpotMini robots... Read more...
Boston Dynamics continues to frighten and amaze us with each iteration of its acrobatic and highly mobile robots. When we last visited the robotics company, its nearly 6-foot tall Atlas robot was jumping over obstacles and performing backflips (sticking the landing like a boss, we should add). Now, it's Spot Mini's... Read more...
Google CEO Sundar Pichai was recently interviewed, and the conversation covered many topics in the tech world. One of the areas that was touched upon was artificial intelligence (AI) and what the future will hold for the technology. In that regard, Pichai likens AI to fire. Pichai said in the interview, "AI is one... Read more...
Google says that its researchers have created an AI"child" that is able to outperform any human-made counterparts using a reinforced learning scheme. This scheme enabled the AI child to learn a task and then report back to the parent to learn how to better perform. The AI child is very good at recognizing objects... Read more...
Three years ago, Elon Musk, arguably one of the smartest men on the planet, had an important warning. He equated the rapid development of AI as summoning 'the demon', and it's really not that hard to understand why. It's hard to talk about this kind of thing without name-dropping "Skynet", but is there a better... Read more...
We have seen Boston Dynamics robots pull off some pretty wild stunts over the years, from fetching beer, to walking up stairs, to being brutally assaulted by its human handlersand taking it in stride. However, this latest achievement by a Boston Dynamics Atlas robot simply left our mouths agape. The video starts... Read more...
We often hear about the eventual robot uprising, especially when it comes to the advances being made in artificial intelligence. Bright minds like Tesla co-founder Elon Musk and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban warn of the potential downsides, hinting at a possible Skynet scenario playing out in real life. But if you... Read more...
Stephen Hawking, one of the brightest minds of all time, believes that artificial intelligence can not only be developed to match the human brain in its ability to solve problems, but exceed it. If used in the right manner, AI has can transform every aspect of our lives and undo the damage to the natural world caused... Read more...
It might not quite be Skynet, but Saudi Arabia this week made an announcement concerning one of its newest citizens. However, we aren't talking about a human in this case; Saudi Arabia has granted citizenship to a humanoid robot named Sophia. The announcement was made at the Future Investment Initiative in...

Anyone out there who shares Elon Musk's fear of a Skynet apocalypsemay find Google's latest AI dubbed AlphaGo Zero to be frightening. The new AI is the followup to the original AlphaZero AI that dominated all human players in an ancient Chinese game called "Go". Google chose Go because it is said to be a game... Read more...
Perhaps Google should invest in a bumper sticker that reads, "My AI is an honor student," and then motor around Redmond and Cupertino where Microsoft and Apple are respectively headquartered. Compared to Bing and Siri, Google's artificial intelligent system is a cut above the competition, according to new research at... Read more...
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been making headlines recently for his rather dire predictions regarding the future of artificial intelligence. The tech mogul fears that AI may advance to the point where it could turn on its human "handlers" and could even spark World War III if left unchecked. However, Google... Read more...
