Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

We develop knowledge-based technologies that allow humans and computers to deal better with the artificial world that surrounds us. The second edition of the textbook “Intelligence Artificielle par la pratique” has been published by PPUR in January 2017. The new book “Game theory for data science: eliciting truthful information” will be published with Morgan Claypool publishers in spring 2017. Goran Radanovic has developed a new boosting mechanism for incentive schemes that greatly reduces. Our work on LocalCoin, a joint effort between EPFL, IIS and HKUST, was published at ACM MobiHoc. Job opportunities at LIA. There are openings for new Ph.D. students at LIA. Applications must go through the I&C doctoral program, EDIC. There is an opening for a post-doc at LIA.

This robot explains why you shouldn’t worry about artificial intelligence

If you’re freaked out a bit by artificial intelligence, here’s a robot with a potentially reassuring message. A service robot called REEM can tackle the question: “Should I worry about AI?”. “The short answer is you do not need to worry about artificial intelligence for many years,” the robot says. “Artificial intelligence requires a body to interact with the world. And we are very far from creating an artificial body with a brain that is smarter than a very basic animal.” In other words, there is not yet a sufficiently powerful combination of robot brains and brawn, according to this view. REEM is offering this take at London’s Science Museum as part of the British attraction’s “Robots” exhibition, which covers 500 years of history and runs until Sept. 3. Another section in the exhibition highlights a related challenge for the bots – communicating well. “For robots to be the companions and helpers of our dreams, they would need to use and understand the same social cues that we do,” a poster reads. “This remains a huge challenge, as human facial expression and body language are often subtle.” Getting back to REEM, it’s a “Full-size humanoid service robot” produced by PAL Robotics, a Spanish company. It’s previously worked in a Mideast shopping mall, talking with customers and promoting a treasure hunt there. REEM is expected to travel with the “Robots” exhibition to other museums after this summer, then later become part of the London facility’s permanent collection. Other robots featured in the exhibition are Kodomoroid, an android TV anchor, and Asimo, a Honda HMC, -0.05% creation that REEM aims to rival. Plus, there is an animatronic baby, helping to explain why visitors on one April afternoon repeatedly could be heard using the word “Creepy” as they walked through. The financial industry, of course, has jumped on the robots band wagon, offering up ways to invest in the AI trend and running a robotics-focused ETF ROBO, -0.09%. This story was first published on April 19, 2017.

Elon Musk: ‘With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon.’

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk warned that artificial intelligence could be our biggest existential threat and believes there should be some regulatory oversight at the national and international level, while speaking at the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics department’s Centennial Symposium in October 2014. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has warned about artificial intelligence before, tweeting that it could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess like what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence. Increasingly scientists think there should be some regulatory oversight maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish. With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like yeah he’s sure he can control the demon. Musk was so caught up on artificial intelligence that he missed the audience’s next question. “Sorry can you repeat the question, I was just sort of thinking about the AI thing for a second,” he said. Musk spoke expansively for over an hour, at one point even asking a MIT student what his favorite sci-fi books were.

Artificial Intelligence

The Artificial Intelligence program at the University of Michigan comprises a multidisciplinary group of researchers conducting theoretical, experimental, and applied investigations of intelligent systems. Current projects include research in rational decision making, distributed systems of multiple agents, machine learning, reinforcement learning, cognitive modeling, game theory, natural language processing, machine perception, healthcare computing, and robotics. Research in the Artificial Intelligence laboratory tends to be highly interdisciplinary, building on ideas from computer science, linguistics, psychology, economics, biology, controls, statistics, and philosophy. In pursuing this approach, laboratory faculty and students work closely with colleagues throughout the University. This collaborative environment, coupled with our diverse perspectives, leads to a valuable interchange of ideas within and across research groups.

Artificial Intelligence Center

SRI’s Artificial Intelligence Center is one of the world’s major centers of research in artificial intelligence. The AIC researches the computational principles underlying intelligence in man and machines, and develops methods for building computer-based systems to solve problems, to communicate with people, and to perceive and interact with the physical world. Activities cover most major areas of AI, including knowledge representation and automated reasoning, machine learning and analytics, multi-agent systems, robotics, and image understanding. Understanding of text, speech, and video for intelligence analysis. The AIC ensures the stimulation and creative exchange of ideas characteristic of an academic setting by collaborating with universities and other research groups, and by providing research opportunities for students and visiting fellows from the U.S. and abroad. The AIC is the source of many seminal contributions to AI in the areas of mobile robotics, search, expert systems, image understanding, information extraction from texts, and intelligent agents.
