In a matter of months, a new type of artificial intelligence (AI) has gone from a fun toy to beating humans at many tasks: This graph shows the improvement in performance of the recently released GPT-4. These are percentiles of humans, so when this shows that GPT-4 passes the bar at the 90 percent percentile, it means it’s better than 90% of candidates! You can see in blue the ability of GPT-3.5, and in green the improvement of GPT-4 on top of that. In just 6 months! Source. Naturally, many people fear for their job. But this fear is […]

Recently, I came across a post of a street vendor marketing his food stall with ChatGPT, an AI-based tool which quickly became a rage on social media. It is interesting to note how even the awareness of AI-based software is reaching corners of the world. In today’s world, the technology revolution has made its way into households of all demographics, and artificial intelligence (AI) is playing a crucial role in enhancing various aspects of our lives, including healthcare, education, and entertainment. Whether it’s personalized treatment plans or learning experiences, algorithm-driven shopping behavior or content consumption, AI is […]

“There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot cannot do better. I want to be clear. These are not things I wish will happen, these are thinks that will probably happen, and then we have to think about, what are we going to do about it? I think some kind of basic universal income is going to be necessary.” – Elon Musk Founder and CEO of Tesla and Space X
The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become slaves to robots. The job market […]

Nov. 30, 2022 will be marked in the history books as the day when a large share of the population, not only in the United States but in the world, started to become aware of Artificial Intelligence. A new application called ChatGPT was released to the public, and was able to write entire texts, including essays, research papers, or news articles in a level of quality never seen before. If prompted, it could even mimic the style of authors such as Shakespeare.
The opportunities in terms of text creation and processing seemed […]

GOOD day all. This is the sixth and the last in the series of our lectures on robotics.
I hope you have found the information on robotics very useful for PNG for education in schools as well as its applications in areas such as medicine, industries, commerce, agriculture and so on.
Now let’s commence the lecture to conclude what we have learnt so far. There are approximately 10 million robots in use in the world today. The country that leads in the use of robots is Japan. Bionics and biometrics use the methods of locomotion used by […]

Work of the Future Initiative co-directors Julie Shah and Ben Armstrong describe their vision of “positive-sum automation.”
Publication Date Caption:
Ben Armstrong, left, and Julie Shah, co-directors of MIT’s ongoing Work of the Future Initiative, discuss their vision of positive-sum automation. In 2018, MIT convened its Task Force on the Work of the Future, which concluded in a 2020 report that while new technologies were not necessarily going to massively wipe out employment, smart practices and policies would be necessary to let automation complement good jobs. Today a successor group is continuing the task force’s effort: The Work of the Future […]

Mónica Quintana and David Alayón, authors of Upgrade, decided to place themselves “in the opportunity of the quarter” and focus their book as a guide to developing “future-proof” professional skills in complex times, with one hand to hyperspecialization and, together with vocation. the other, multidisciplinary or neogeneral profiles. Alejandra de la Fuente, writer @shitjobs and La España Precaria, talks about a culture of fear, conformity and precariousness, sometimes adorned with anglicisms that make it look modern – freelancers, digital nomads, friganismo (taking food from the garbage).

David Hanson is no stranger to going against the grain.
A PwC survey of 10,000 global workers found that 73 percent believe that technology will never replace the human mind but Hanson, the Founder and CEO of the eponymously named Hanson Robotics, has a contrary view.
“I don’t see why somebody would conclude that technology will never replace the human mind,” he says adamantly.“The term ‘never’ becomes quaint over time. For instance, ‘we will never fly’ or ‘we will never need computers with greater than X number of megabytes or kilobytes’.”The sculptor turned robotics designer has a history of breaking new […]
