Google AI built “AI child’ more advanced than anything humans have ever made

A Google supercomputer has created an “AI child” which can outperform its man-made rivals.

The incredible machine named NASNet becomes smarter through “reinforcement learning” which sees it report back to its “parent” computer when completing tasks.

The AI (artificial intelligence,) which was created earlier this year, is able to recognize objects such as people and cars while watching real time video.

NASNet is controlled by a neural network called AutoML which was created by humans at Google Brain.

The parent AI teaches its offspring to do specific tasks which are repeated thousands of times.

Researchers have found that NASNet is 82.7 percent accurate at predicting images correctly which means it has “outperformed all other computer vision systems,” reports Science Alert.

The system has overall made itself four percent more efficient through reinforcement learning with its parent.

And because the system is “open source,” the Google Brain team said they hope “the larger machine learning community will be able to build on these models to address multitudes of computer vision problems we have not yet imagined.”

But the rapid development of AI has sparked fears the technology could destroy the human race.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is one of those who has called for artificial intelligence to be regulated because it poses a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.”

Google’s engineering director Ray Kurzweil has tried to dampen fears that artificial intelligence is a danger to mankind, reports Futurism.

He said: “Technology has always been a double-edged sword – fire kept us warm, cooked our food and burned down our houses.

“World War II – 50 million people died and that was certainly exacerbated by the power of technology at that time.

“My view is not that AI is going to displace us. It’s going to enhance us. It does already.”
