Crowdsourcing Moral Machines

On Mar 1, 2020
@PeterAsaro shared
RT @jhimmelreich: The #moralmachine group is doubling down. What's the point of "crowdsourcing ethical opinion"? Oh right, technological change can't come fast enough: the risk is that "societal push-back will drastically slow down the adoption of intelligent machines". 1/n https://t.co/9zvLNH0lKx

If AI's So Smart, Why Can't It Grasp Cause and Effect?

On Mar 9, 2020
@WIRED shared
A new experiment shows how difficult it is for even the best artificial intelligence systems to grasp rudimentary physics and cause and effect. It also offers a path for building AI systems that can learn why things happen. https://t.co/SUIEcQdUUo

Deep-learning models can spot patterns that humans can't. But software still can't explain, say, what caused one object to collide with another.
