“Robot’s Delight – A Lyrical Exposition on Learning by Imitation from Human-Human Interaction” is a video submission that won Best Video at the 2017 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI 2017). The team also provides an in-depth explanation of the techniques and robotics in the video.

Artificial intelligence (AI) already plays a major role in human economies and societies, and it will play an even bigger role in the coming years. To ponder the future of AI is thus to acknowledge that the future is AI. But how bright is that future? Or how dark?

Artificial intelligence is surrounded by fear and mystery because very few understand its inner workings. But it’s actually rather intuitive and far simpler than it seems.

If a machine can think, decide and act on its own volition, if it can be harmed or held responsible for its actions, should we stop treating it like property and start treating it more like a person with rights?

In this interview, Dr. Yueh-Hsuan Weng invites Prof. Ronald C. Arkin, Executive Committee Member of IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, to share his insights on roboethics, with a focus on its technical aspects, military and caregiver applications..

On the 15th November 2016, the IEEE’s AI and Ethics Summit posed the question: “Who does the thinking?” In a series of key-note speeches and lively panel discussions, leading technologists, legal thinkers, philosophers, social scientists, manufacturers and policy makers considered such issues as:

  • The social, technological and philosophical questions orbiting AI.
  • Proposals to program ethical algorithms with human values to machines.
  • The social implications of the applications of AI.

With machine intelligence emerging as an essential tool in many aspects of modern life, Alan Winfield discusses autonomous sytems, safety and regulation.

In this fascinating animation from Oxford Sparks, we take a look at how statistics and computer science can be used to make machines that learn for themselves, without being explicitly programmed.

Join Professor Brian Cox as he brings together experts on AI and machine learning (including RoboHub’s own Sabine Hauert) to discuss key issues that will shape our technological future

System correlates recorded speech with images, could lead to fully automated speech recognition.

We need to do more than teach machines to learn. We need to overcome the barriers that separate machines from us – and us from them.
