Artificial Brain Now In Full Process Of Learning From The Internet
Some people actually fear the presence of artificial intelligence and are scared that it might become self-aware and start acting on its own. Research in Japan has already taken that step, sort of, and created an artificial brain that is in the process of learning everything from the Internet.
Notes that researchers attempt to create in SOINN an AI brain that can learn by itself from anything on the internet. The computer first scans an object and makes an educated guess as to its nature.
Then SOINN scours the internet to find all the information it can on the recognized object, incorporating all that it learns into its memory. SOINN can then detect that object in any shape, size, or color, and from any angle.
This ability to recognize the object in all its forms allows SOINN to then tap into memory to retrieve all that is known about the thing. This is AI self-learning which is a remarkable stride in the field. The extremely complex algorithm behind it all always changes as the brain does when it learns, so that the more information it uncovers, the more complex learning can take place.
Dr. Osamu Hasegawa heads the project from the Tokyo Institute of Technology is excited about the AI technology that allows SOINN to become more self aware the more it learns. He is now working to perfect the algorithm so that it is able to recognize anything placed in front of its eye. Once recognized, SOINN heads to the internet looking for pictures, information, and knowledge about it.
Once an object has gone through this process, all the information is stored in memory and the algorithm alters to allow for the new knowledge. The computer is actually self-learning.
The video below, much translated from Japanese, is informative and shows off some of SOINN's unique features.
