Google’s new #AI has learned to become “highly aggressive” in stressful situations

More complex and intelligent AI’s, when competing against each other in a zero-sum game ultimately become aggressive and violent in pursuit of the game’s objective.  This behavior increases with increased intelligence.

One potential conclusion:

What the tests reveal, is that the behavior of AI’s amongst & against both humans and other AI’s will be determined by how they are taught to perceive and interpret the actions of others and the context of that action.  If the AI’s perceive others as collaborators in a fundamentally cooperative exercise, they will be more likely to exhibit positive, supportive behaviors.  If the AI’s perceive others as competitors in a zero-sum game, they may tend towards aggression.

#AI can now muddle its way through the math SAT about as well as you can #artificialintelligence

The AI isn’t exactly Harvard material yet.  However, using an unmodified test, an AI system has gotten a fairly average score (for a high schooler) on the math section of the SAT — 500 points out of 800. That’s about 49 percent accuracy, and comes quite close to the high school senior average of 513 points.

Joshua Browder #bot overturns 160,000 parking tickets – Business Insider  #ai #artificialintelligence

A robot lawyer is helping people contest their parking tickets and it has helped thousands of people, so far.  64% success rate.

Without seeing the code, can’t say this definitively, but I doubt this is actual AI, more likely just a well implemented decision tree.  Even so – it is a great example of what’s possible.
