Google's AI Built a Better AI

Print

Google's AutoML project was designed to make AI build other AI is a success - and that is a little scary. This project managed to build a better AI than humans have developed and it is by far superior. Once you roll the newly created AI back into the project to develop yet a better AI, then you get even more crazy stuff as it exponentially gets better. While there are safeguards in place (in theory), I'm sure that a fourth generation (or more) self-created AI could do a bit of damage if it wanted to. While it sounds like Terminator  - and a little crazy - the fact is that all it lacks is a motive.

Machine learning is what gives many AI systems their ability to perform specific tasks. Although the concept behind it is fairly simple — an algorithm learns by being fed a ton of data — the process requires a huge amount of time and effort. By automating the process of creating accurate, efficient AI systems, an AI that can build AI takes on the brunt of that work. Ultimately, that means AutoML could open up the field of machine learning and AI to non-experts.
