A New Black Metal Album Was Just Published — and It Wasn’t Made by a Human

. IN BRIEF An artificial intelligence has produced a five-track black metal album titled “Coditany of Timeness.” The songs were produced by training a neural network with Krallice’s 2011 record Diotima.  DADABOTS/Bandcamp ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SHREDS Artificial intelligence has already proven its prowess at tasks, from driving cars to making nuclear reactors safer. Now, the technology is being used to create a black metal album that shreds just as fiercely as music produced by humans. Coditany of Timeness is the product of a project undertaken by CJ Carr and Zack Zukowski. It’s a five-track black metal album that features songs with algorithmically generated titles like … Continue reading A New Black Metal Album Was Just Published — and It Wasn’t Made by a Human

No, we won’t have a Blade Runner future: The robots of tomorrow won’t look like humans — we’re too inefficient

by: Frances Bloomfield (Natural News) In the 1980s science fiction classic Blade Runner, there exist human-looking robots known as replicants. These fictional biorobotic androids seem human on the surface yet possess strength, agility, speed, and resilience superior to ours. They’re also what many of us imagine the robots of the future will look like — as human as possible. Though according to Simon Watson, a Lecturer in Robotic Systems at the University of Manchester, that may not be the case as humans are “too inefficient.” “We like to think that we’re the dominant creatures on the planet, so mobile robots should look like … Continue reading No, we won’t have a Blade Runner future: The robots of tomorrow won’t look like humans — we’re too inefficient

Putin and Musk may be right: Industry experts say it is theoretically impossible to make sure AI won’t harm humans

by: JD Heyes (Natural News) As researchers continue to make advances in artificial intelligence, or AI, the louder and more frequent the calls are becoming to not simply tread lightly with the technology but to abandon it completely. And why? Because many fear that the technology will someday turn on humans and wipe all of us out. One of the most vocal in promoting this theory has been entrepreneur and Tesla founder Elon Musk who, with scientist Stephen Hawking, wrote an open letter to the tech industry in 2015 warning that AI would not only put tens of millions of people out of … Continue reading Putin and Musk may be right: Industry experts say it is theoretically impossible to make sure AI won’t harm humans

Stephen Hawking Believes Humankind Is in Danger of Self-Destruction Due to AI

 pixabay IN BRIEF World-renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking is a monumental figure in modern science. Lately, he’s been focused on what he perceives to be major threats to the future of humanity. THEORY OF THE END Stephen Hawking is one of the most respected minds in science today. He often speaks on a wide range of topics both within and outside of his particular expertise in theoretical physics. Some of Hawking’s most discussed topics including the search for alien life, climate change, artificial intelligence (AI), and how all of these things, and more, are going to spell the end of humanity once and for all. Speaking at … Continue reading Stephen Hawking Believes Humankind Is in Danger of Self-Destruction Due to AI

‘AI may replace humans’ & become new form of life – Stephen Hawking

  © Colin Anderson / Getty Images One day robots could entirely edge out human beings and become a new life form that is even capable of replicating itself, Stephen Hawking has warned, once again predicting a rather grim future for humankind. “I fear that AI may replace humans altogether,” the renowned physicist told Wired magazine, as cited by the Cambridge News. “If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that improves and replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans,” Hawking added. However, humanity itself has already reached “the point of no return”and may destroy itself first, the 75-year-old academic … Continue reading ‘AI may replace humans’ & become new form of life – Stephen Hawking

The Rise of Conscious AI is Just Decades Away

image edited by Fernando Kaskais  by Dom Galeon  Putting the “AI Hype” in Perspective Today, many of the world’s leading companies are in a one-of-a-kind race: To bring artificial intelligence (AI) to life. Already, machine learning systems are the core of many businesses, so it’s no surprise that updates about this AI or that neural net often pop up on our newsfeed. Such headlines typically read along the lines of, “AI beats human players in video game” or “AI mimics human speech” and even sometimes things like “AI detects cancer using machine learning.” But just how close are we to having … Continue reading The Rise of Conscious AI is Just Decades Away
