Attention, Internet! The Best Movies About Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is on a lot of people’s minds lately, and some people are quite worried about AI Here’s Why Scientists Think You Should be Worried about Artificial Intelligence. Hollywood has released a lot of great movies exploring the issues of AI over the years, though filmmakers attitudes to artificial intelligence How Hollywood Has Depicted Artificial Intelligence Over The Years have varied wildly over the decades. As one of the most influential sci-fi movies of all time, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 is an absolute must-see no matter what kind of science you’re interested in but it’ll give you an especially large amount of things to think about if you’re into AI. The Cold War brought about a lot of technological advances, and WarGames explores what might have happened if artificial intelligence was one of them. Although Terminator 2 is generally considered to be the best installment in the series, the third movie deals more directly with Skynet – a global artificial intelligence birthed by the Cyberdyne corporation and taken over by the Air Force – and its rise to power. These 10 movies will get you thinking about artificial intelligence What Artificial Intelligence Isn’t : its creation, maintenance, and a wide range of political, moral, and safety issues that it could bring about.

Artificial Intelligence Takes Shape In Oil, Gas Sector

When artificial intelligence technology intersects with abundant oil and gas seismic data, the outcome could yield a more accurate depiction of what lies beneath the surface, enabling cash-strapped drillers to better target sweet spots and maximize returns. The Silicon Valley-based deep learning, artificial intelligence company utilizes supervised learning when it trains or teaches the artificial neural network how to find oil and gas using data from geoseismic studies. “We approached Nervana Systems to explore ways artificial intelligence could help improve operational efficiency in oil exploration. Nervana successfully built a deep learning-based solution on their cloud to detect numerous subsurface faults within three-dimensional seismic imagery without the need for manual intervention,” Indy Chakrabarti, senior vice president of product management and strategy at Paradigm, said in a statement. “Our target is really a data scientist,” Rao said noting Nervana provides a general platform for applying neuro networks to data problems faced by not only the energy sector, but also the health care, finance, retail, agriculture and technology industries among others. Today’s market conditions have curtailed some artificial intelligence research efforts, Rao said.
