AI research nerve centre launched in Cambridge

The future impact of Artificial Intelligence on humanity – the challenges and opportunities – will be the focus of a new research centre being opened by the University of Cambridge in the UK thanks to a £10 million grant from the Leverhulme Trust. The rationale for the new hub is that human-level intelligence is familiar in biological ‘hardware’ – it happens inside our skulls – but technology and science are now converging on a possible future where similar intelligence can be created in computers. While it is hard to predict when this will happen, some researchers suggest that human-level AI will be created within this century. Freed of biological constraints, such machines might become much more intelligent than humans. What would this mean for us?  Stuart Russell, a world-leading AI…
