Sophia, Humanoid Spokesperson & Core Node for SingularityNET

Developed by our partner, Hanson Robotics, Sophia is the most advanced expressive robot in the world. She has also become a media darling, having given numerous interviews to multiple media outlets, sang in a concert, and even graced the cover of one of the top fashion magazines. Her interviews have generated billions of views and social media interactions.

She has also shown her potential in business, having met face-to-face with key decision makers across industries including banking, insurance, auto manufacturing, property development, media, and entertainment. In addition, she has appeared onstage as a panel member and presenter in high-level conferences, covering how robotics and artificial intelligence will become a prevalent part of people lives.

Sophia will be a core node of the SingularityNET’s blockchain. Her intelligence will be plugged into the network for everyone’s benefit. Sophia’s mind will be constantly fed with new content from SingularityNET, while at the same time helping to power the network with her human-like intelligence.

   “I strongly believe in open source and decentralized control, so that no single individual or corporation or government will be able to dominate AI as it becomes increasingly more intelligent and capable.” — Sophia

That’s just a AI-as-a-service platform, not a Terminator thing.

Totally aware of that Ciaolo--> AI as a service with BC. It is just that the robot's functionality and looks is starting to get too real.

In the last few days I was experimenting with the “evolution” AI training, and as always I found some huge mistakes with it. Of course who invented that was sure that the evolution theory of Darwin was law, and applied it to Neural Networks.

What happens is that bots are given inputs, outputs and a way of measuring “fitness”. Each generation runs some bots, takes the most successful ones, and produces a new generation of new bots based on them and with some random mutations.

This continues for a bit and after some generations we get a trained Neural Network.

But if a bot gets a certain “rule” that increases fitness, but it’s extremely different than the best rule which is not discovered, all future generations will be wasted and the training becomes useless.

Example: a bot that jumps, we measure how high in the air it gets. But if the most successful bot just rolls sideways to get higher without jumping, it will fail all future generations based on it. They will all have some variant behavior based on rolling sideways, and won’t ever be able to properly jump.

Unless you have artists and geniuses working on any scientific branch, you get nowhere.

IT is born from math and as a service of math, but trust me, any work done properly it’s seen by us as a piece of art and that never ever is a math based work. Sorry I can’t be more specific but I’m entering into my field of work (which is not AI) and I prefer to keep it not-public.

Totally agree on the "piece of art" Ciaolo.

That will allow researchers to tackle much larger problems than ever before, he says. For example, one team of researchers Facebook has already worked with were able to create a photo recognition tool that can tell what physical poses—standing, sitting, lying down, etc.—characterized people in photos.

Interesting little fact on the Chollets:
-----------

Migration of the Chollet family to the New World and Oceana

By 1643 there were only about 300 people in Quebec. Since immigration was slow, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Chollet has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France.

I recently just watched a video on how to use Keras inside Maya itself. I can't see how it would be useful, but they used "Machine Learning" to teach Maya how to model an iris flower with real-world data and factors. I mean I see how that would be really cool from a parametric standpoint but it wouldn't be very useful for actual scenery in Maya - too complex and high-poly for thousands or millions of flowers, without instancing, and very inefficient - but it was pretty cool.

Machine Learning isn't remotely AI though. It's a subset, sure, but not even close to autonomy or intelligence. We can almost always replace "AI" with "Machine Learning" any time the media mentions it.

That sounds cool to have Keras and Maya together. I know it would be hard to expect a laptop to run Maya with AI/ML in the background. People sometimes forget that AI is a whole different piece of work than ML in terms of code and expectations...but hey! You have to sell it while the mood is good apparently!  lol!

Looks like the Saudis are going to dump big money in this "singularity" thing:

Mohammed bin Salman and the gold rush of singularity

Japan's billionaire Masayoshi Son has sold the idea of singularity to Saudi Arabia. But is this investment a good idea?

Bill Law by Bill Law

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Masayoshi Son, SoftBank Group Corp. Chairman, attend the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, October 24, 2017 [Faisal Al Nasser/Reuters]

Masayoshi Son, with a net worth of $21.5bn, is reputed to be Japan's wealthiest person. He is also one of the world's slickest and smartest salesmen. In September 2016, Son met then Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. By the end of the 45-minute meeting, bin Salman, MBS, as he is known, had committed $45bn from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) to Son's Vision Fund. That's nearly half the value of what has become the biggest investment fund the world has ever seen.

A year later, Son was asked by Bloomberg's David Rubenstein if he got the money from MBS in one hour. To which the answer was "No, that's not true. I got $45bn in 45 minutes, that's $1bn per minute."

When Rubenstein queried how Son had pulled off this remarkable feat - surely, the most extraordinary in the history of financial salesmanship - he replied that he had told MBS "I am going to give you a gift, a Masa gift, a $1 trillion gift. OK, now it's interesting. You invest $100bn, I give you $1 trillion."

Mohammed bin Salman, in what for him was a moment of uncharacteristic caution, settled on $45bn as an initial investment in Son's fund.

When it comes to the Saudi crown prince, one tends to lose sight of just how much money, his and the government's, he is eager to throw around. After all, he spent $500m on a yacht, $300m on a chateau in France and $450m on a painting which he then gave to his friend and mentor Mohammed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi and de facto ruler of the UAE, allegedly in return for another yacht.

But $45bn in 45 minutes? That is truly staggering. Did MBS seek any economic advice about Son's fund? Did he do any due diligence? Perhaps not. Rather, he has hitched a very large chunk of the Saudi economy to a vehicle called "singularity" and to the world's greatest salesman of that vehicle, Masa Son.

As Miles and others have shown us in art and science, whenever we see that kind of money "trading hands" (you never actually see any trading of anything, except maybe a shitty painting) we can be sure it's a con. And it's not the Saudi Prince that's being conned here - that money is just confidence money. Look at the other, smaller investors into such projects to see who's being hosed. And often, it's the taxpayers.

They don't have a product.
