Chinese Smartphone Maker Promises to Outdo Apple With "The Real AI Phone" by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
The proof is in the pudding. We'll see what they come up with. I don't discount what China has to say out of hand. The absolutely staggering amount of technological progress that China has achieved within the last 10 years alone gives me pause. And yes I know they did that by hook or by crook, but the fact remains that China is rapidly equaling and/or exceeding pretty much any technological advance being made by the USA. I also see evidence that China's AI efforts for general consumer use exceed that of the West as well.
But we shall also see what the Apple IPhone X has to offer as well. In any event I see that human civilization is going to make a substantial leap forward in AI and mobile computer processing power going forward from here. A much higher bar has been set. Also while I have this forum, I'd like to pass on this message... PLEASE turn your phone sideways to record stuff--Thank you! --"The rest of the world".

Move Over Millennials, Here Comes 'iGen' ... Or Maybe Not by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 3 points 6 months ago
If you think the so-called "iGen" is crazy, just wait until the children that are now 3 and 4 grow up in a world where they have always known mobiles, VAR and AI. AI in everything, from no more driving lessons to AI assistants to boss around with loud impatient voices.

Oh! Try this out! I can't get it to work on my work pc, but that's because it's a work pc. On my home pc and my iphone 7 it works just fine.

This is just 2D on a screen. The future of VR is going to be absolutely insane. Beyond anything we can imagine.
(I recommend just downloading "Sketchfab" on any pc or mobile you have. An incredible combination of computer processing power and narrow AI.)

Deep Learning Could Finally Make Robots Useful by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 6 months ago
In what year will I see a humanoid robot like say, "Sophia" from Hanson Robotics mixed with a deep learning ability. Oh, and then that "Sophia" robot could have these new-fangled "soft" muscles that are all the news today as well. That would be quite an accomplishment.
But why stop there. How soon until we can use narrow AI and new robotics technology to allow humanoid robots to walk the streets with humans. Would that be OK with everybody? What year will I see that I wonder.
I bet it's all gonna happen in about 20 years or less. So I'll be about 77 years chronologically. I wonder if I'll have a little age-reversing on me by then.

Make a 3D model of your face from a single photo with this AI tool by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
Could we make motion pictures of anybody in history that was photographed? Imagine, genuine motion picture images of Abraham Lincoln or, ...well I'm sure there are other famous people from after photography's invention, but before motion pictures. But mainly it was Lincoln who popped into my imagination.

Massive demand will see 5G phones arrive in 2019 says Qualcomm by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
Yeah, that's my point. Apple "steals" everyone else's ideas and perfects them to the point that they are irresistible somehow. That's what Apple does. I'm not saying it's good or bad. I'm saying that's why I trust Apple for my mobile.

In the Future, Pop Hits Will Be Made by Machines by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 6 months ago
What I am about to state was 10 years ago, wildest fantasy. How times have changed.
It's quite simple actually. Our computers can now process stupendous, colossal amounts of "big data". Among that data are our likes and dislikes. Also what all of our songs sound like, what all of our art looks like, how all of our motion pictures and plays and performances are accomplished. Pretty much everything we have written down. And probably tons of other data I can't recall offhand. Also screamingly funny cat videos.
Now the computers that we have use a multitude of clever human ideas like machine learning, convolutional neural networks, and I'm certain some other marvelous methods of collating, analyzing and deconstructing all that data for actionable information. This involves things like identifying edges and light and shadow, word patterns and lots of confusing criss-crossy lines in the diagrams I look at. But I'm pretty sure it knows what it is doing.
Then our computers can use "predictive analysis" to develop models of varying degrees of confidence that are constantly tested against a sort of intrinsic "critic" that says thumbs up or thumbs down based on all that big data and that collating and whatnot.
Then it spits out the "highest confidence" result. Humans experience whatever it is and send their own feedback into the computer, which assimilates any novel data from that human feedback and tweaks its models to eventually precisely push the emotional buttons that make a song "haunting" an art piece "compelling" or videos "screamingly funny".
The AI is not going to get worse at "creativity". It's going to surpass human efforts in short order. Humans will come to prefer AI art to that of inferior "human" art. What kind of world will that be? And that is just in art and stuff. The AI will dominate everything else as well. And believe it or not that is still "narrow" AI. Just wait until we successfully develop artificial general intelligence (AGI). Then we either adapt or die. And in that meantime...
"Humans Need Not Apply".
Here is a computer algorithm using narrow AI-big data-CNN-predictive analysis to model human faces that don't exist in real life. They don't look too bad today. Yes, they need work. But in about 5 years--wow! OMG!

True, Bitcoin May Become Corrupt. But Banks Already Are. by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
I thought we were trying to move away from this mess. I thought the goal was the dream of Peter Diamandis' "Post-Scarcity" society. But instead we just seem to be adding more confusing layers of crap that enables those in the know to make massive amounts of money on the backs of those not as clever. The 1% persists, the 99% persists to fail.
I certainly look forward to the day when we can put AI inside of our minds and no one can be fooled or tricked or deceived any longer. I bet a lot of people think that making all humans super intelligent would not be such a good idea. It would definitely "upset the apple cart" of business as usual.
But who am I kidding. The 1% will get that AI inside of their minds and the rest of us will be their willing slaves or simply exterminated to get rid of the "surplus population" and make the Earth a nicer place to live for the 1%.

A billion new low-cost employees from china didn't cause unemployment. Why should some puny robots scare us ? by furyfairy in Futurology

I think I can sum it up fairly succinctly. The industrial revolution replaced human (and horse) (and oxen) muscle. The AI revolution will replace the human mind. Watch this space in 10 years.

[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
Wow! 7 years ago was a technological lifetime ago. The convergence of VR, AI and consumer level peta-scale processing power will bring about devices that are as different from the playstation console of today as the motor vehicle is from the horse in that next 7 years!
I got my IPhone 7+ in Sep of 2016. And it was totally slam awesome. But this years iteration of the IPhone is so fantastically advanced over that of my IPhone 7+, that forgive me if I show no control and leap for the next gen with it's enlarged OLED HDR screen, in-built machine learning chip and processing power and capability. Even that creepy perfected facial recognition technology. Not undependable and quirky like the current gen Samsung.
Here is IPhone 7: http://bgr.com/2016/10/21/iphone-7-specs-a10-fusion-processo
Here is IPhone X: https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/13/16300464/apple-iphone-x-ai-neural-engine
I suspect I'm not the only one who can't control myself. And of course in the fall of the year 2018 I shall hopefully be able to get a bit of a discount on my IPhone X trade-in for the next gen of the IPhone.

Superpower India to Replace China as Growth Engine by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 9 points 6 months ago
No. India is far far too scattershot politically, technologically, culturally and socio-economically to ever be able to compete meaningfully with China. Aside from a few technological "city-state islands", the majority of India remains a 3rd world backwater. Filthy, ignorant and dangerous.
Having said that, I observe with sincere amazement and admiration when Indians leave India and become powerful intellects in their adopted new countries. The potential absolutely exists and if it is ever tapped would be transforming. Unfortunately the 21st century is likely to belong to China/USA until the AGI actually takes over completely mid-century or so.

How long should a $999 iPhone last? (Me: or any mobile for that matter.) by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
One year, tops. After that point I expect the exponential technological advances to be such as to render my one year old 999 dollar mobile nearly obsolete. Hopefully I can trade in my one year old mobile for a bit of a discount on my 1500 dollar, next year mobile.
I absolutely delight in the fact it becomes necessary for me to have to update my mobile once each year. It just goes to show how incredibly fast our technology is advancing.
By the way, if you can't use the website "Sketchfab" on your mobile because it won't support it, you need to upgrade your mobile. "Sketchfab" is a miracle of AI and processing power. You have to see it to believe it. Here is the pc version.

PAL-V Just Announced Plans to Travel Around the World in a Flying Car by skoalbrother in Futurology


[–]izumi3682 1 point 6 months ago
Granted its a tiny helicopter, but it's still a helicopter. If you need tons of license and training and carrying on for your flying car, we haven't arrived. A flying car should be electric and level 5 AI autonomous. The human(s) get(s) in like a regular car, tells the flying car where to go and the flying car takes off like a king sized drone to deliver that/them human(s) to their destination in safety and comfort.
We'll get there. I see good signs. But this is just a little helicopter.

Median wealth of black Americans 'will fall to zero by 2053', warns new report | Inequality by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 6 months ago
Just as the transistor replaced the vacuum tube, the quantum logic gate will replace the transistor based chip. Quantum supremacy is possible by 2018. Moore's law will be transcended. In the meantime 15 petaflops computers are sprouting like dandelions. This will trickle down to the consumer as well. Just imagine the resulting VR!

Smartphones Could Be Leading To A Mental-Health Crisis by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] -1 points 6 months ago
Smartphones demonstrate the increasingly sharper and growing disconnect between machines like mobiles and biological human minds. This is only going to get worse. And it really is worrisome. It is almost as if humans are screamingly striving toward becoming one with the devices. You can see it so easily now in everyday life. Just go out where people are and you'll see it. But I also believe that help is on the way.
Unfortunately this help, the BMI (Brain Machine Interface) which, while it will restore equilibrium again, will also leave a far different "human" on the other side. Hopefully I'll really really like being "Human 2.0".

How Tinder Exposed Our Reliance on Racist Stereotypes by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 6 months ago
This is a perfect example of parsing "big data" to gain useful and sometimes distressing insights. The demographics of the USA are now in flux. The next 20 years, in the absence of overwhelming AI, will see vast changes in the way that the USA thinks. Me, I just want a comfortable, cool tech VR future, but I worry about increasing societal discord in the USA from a variety of "growing pains" that are more than just exposed racism and demographic shift.

The power of the network - are there potential real world applications?

So I own some bitcoins, I am passionate and have faith in the currency and I am confident the speed of adoption is only going to increase with time. But I recently found out the bitcoin network is the largest distributed computer network in the world. It runs with over 700 petaflops, which in clearer terms is 700 quadrillion floating point operations per second. To put this into even more context the US department of energy recently built a supercomputer called Triton which cost $1.2Billion and runs with only 15 petaflops.
I started to beg the question if we could utilise this massive amount of computing power in more applications (alongside the hashing of the blockchain) that could be beneficial to all of us? Many of you will have heard of protein folding puzzles that utilise our minds and computers to solve protein folding problems, one of these being Foldit. This is just one example, but obviously there would be thousands of possible applications, computer modelling, simulations, whatever.
My question is, is this possible? Or is the network only designed for and capable of hashing the algorithm of the currency? Would more load on the network slow the blockchain down? Could we take just 10% of the network and use it for other means during less congested periods?
Thanks in advance if anyone can help answer this.
