There are so many Artificial Intelligence news out there — and so little time! We picked up the most interesting ones, so sit back, and take a break.
These were the 5 Must-Read Artificial Intelligence Articles of The Past Week:
The AI could decode what dolphins say
Dolphins are known to be highly intelligent creatures, and have even been found to construct ‘sentences’ from patterns of clicks and pulses to communicate with each other. And, using artificial intelligence, researchers are now hoping to figure out what they’re talking about.Researchers in Sweden are set to begin creating a dolphin-language dictionary using technology from language-analysis startup Gavagai AB — and, it could one day allow humans to communicate with the animals.
The Race to build and AI Chip just got real.
Google recently built its own AI chip, called the TPU, and this is widely deployed inside the massive data centers that underpin the company’s online empire. There, packed into machines by the thousands, the TPU helps with everything from identifying commands spoken into Android smartphones to choosing results on the Google search engine. But this is just the start of a much bigger wave. As CNBC revealed last week, several of the original engineers behind the Google TPU are now working to build similar chips at a stealth startup called Groq, and the big-name commercial chip makers, including Intel, IBM, and Qualcomm, are pushing in the same direction.
AI willl cause people “more pain than happiness”
“Social conflicts in the next three decades will have an impact on all sorts of industries and walks of life,” said Ma, speaking at an entrepreneurship conference in China about the job disruptions that would be created by automation and the internet. A key social conflict will be the rise of artificial intelligence and longer life expectancy, which will lead to an aging workforce fighting for fewer jobs.Ma, who is usually more optimistic in his presentations, issued the warning to encourage businesses to adapt or face problems in the future. He said that 15 years ago he gave hundreds of speeches warning about the impact of e-commerce on traditional retailers and few people listened because he wasn’t as well-known as he is now.

Reading an AI Car’s Mind: How NVIDIA’s Neural Net Makes Decisions
It’s just not practical to program a car to drive itself in every environment, given the nearly infinite range of possible variables involved. But, thanks to AI, we can show it how to drive. And, unlike your teenager, you can then see what it’s paying attention to. With NVIDIA PilotNet, we created a neural-network-based system that learns to steer a car by observing what people do. But we didn’t stop there. We developed a method for the network to tell us what it prioritized when making driving decisions.So while the technology lets us build systems that learn to do things we can’t manually program, we can still explain how the systems make decisions.
As Robots Rise, How Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Jobs
In 2013, technologists Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne published a research that tried to predict the kinds of jobs technology is likely to replace in the next few decades. Middle-skilled workers, such as tax accountants, telemarketers and freight agents, were deemed most likely to be replaced by robots in the next few years, while skilled workers such as scientists, healthcare professionals, leaders, entrepreneurs, writers and artists were deemed the most secure. The explanation behind this inference was simple, humans are the most productive at professions that require them to regularly interact with other humans, while machines supersede them at such things as following patterns and executing routine work. The paper, however, didn’t take into assumption one key aspect.
