Today, robots and artificial intelligence are no longer in the imagination stage, they are becoming a new outlet in the industry, setting off a new wave of technological innovation. Recently, the high-end salon "Dancing with Robots" jointly sponsored by the Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence, Zhanlu Culture, and Haiyin Capital was held in Beijing.
At this high-end robotics salon, big names in artificial intelligence combined with the book "Dancing with Robots" written by John Markov, shared the current development status of robots and artificial intelligence, and expressed their views on the future of the artificial intelligence era. Make a prophecy. In the BIG SHOW session, David Hanson, the founder of Hansen Robotics, brought a robot to the stage.
AI and IA: Who's the Winner?
In the past, artificial intelligence was divided into strong artificial intelligence and weak artificial intelligence in the industry. In many cases, whether a robot could pass the Turing test was the standard, and the goal was to see whether its intelligence level could reach the point where it could replace humans. Markov, the author of "Dancing with Robots", divides it into two categories: artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligence augmentation (IA). Human capabilities, not replacing humans.
Yu Zhichen, the founder of Turing Robot, delivered a speech at the salon. He talked about the concepts of artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligence enhancement (IA) analyzed in the book, saying that many things about AI have been integrated with many IA scenarios today. together. Yu Zhichen said: "I think it is a process that complements each other and continuously promotes development."
At present, consumers have very high expectations for artificial intelligence, but in fact, in the industry and academia, the current capabilities and its productization are far from reaching such a high level. The current trend shows that to achieve this goal, the integration of artificial intelligence, robots, and the Internet is required in the future. Yu Zhichen believes that today we all talk about the so-called "Internet +", and there will be more so-called "artificial intelligence +" in the future.
Professor Yu Naigong, head of the automation department of Beijing University of Technology, predicted the development of artificial intelligence from an academic point of view. This expert who has been working on robot motion balance for many years believes that in the future, IoT robots and the concept of the cloud must be used. Otherwise, it will be difficult to add intelligence, which is the so-called big data. How to use big data? There's a lot of academic stuff to it. "The Internet is a support for robots, and artificial intelligence is also a support for robots. These things will definitely be done together in the future." Yu Naigong said.
Robots will lead the fourth industrial revolution
At the salon, Huang Xiaoqing, the founder of Damen Technology, expressed his views, saying that the next industrial revolution for mankind is undoubtedly the robot revolution. For China, if the reform of China's system and mechanism can be completed in the next 20 years, China will have the opportunity to participate in the fourth industrial revolution.
Chen Xiaohui, founder and president of Zhanlu Culture, delivered a speech, saying that in the field of artificial intelligence, China may still be more than ten years away from the world's cutting-edge level. When the robot wave comes, China is worried that migrant workers will be laid off, while the United States is worried that artificial intelligence will replace middle-class jobs. Therefore, China must introduce foreign advanced artificial intelligence ideas.
A world where humans and robots coexist
Wang Yuquan, co-founder of Haiyin Capital, expressed his views on the relationship between humans and robots in the future. Wang Yuquan said that more optimistic people believe that robots cannot replace human work, and they can turn to do more creative work and cooperate with robots. For example, Google's self-driving cars can handle 99% of the problems very well, but 1% can't get through it, but humans are just 1% better than machines, and 99% of them are not as good as machines. machine. The current design of the car, if there is an accident, how can humans control the car? In the future, the robot is just the opposite. If there is an accident, can the machine control the car? It can handle it better than us. When something goes wrong, give it to the machine, because it has no feelings.
On this issue, Yu Zhichen believes: "Artificial intelligence is actually a world circle with various factions. There are some disputes between each faction, including disagreement between each other, and I belong to the optimist. I believe that in the future, dancing with robots will no longer be a dream."
Professor Yu Naigong said: "People can participate in the closed loop of these robots through various methods, which play a key role. After reading this book today, I have some inspiration for my previous thinking. In this way If you look at it, the relationship between humans and machines in the future will be more optimistic."
What does the age of artificial intelligence look like
David Hanson, the founder of Hanson Robot Company, demonstrated the Hanson robot he brought. He said, "This robot can make a lot of expressions and interact with people. In fact, it is only driven by a lot of motors at the back, which makes the robot and real people more vivid. Natural conversation. The robot itself tracks faces, and if it sees a face in front of it, it tracks that face."
Regarding the market for this robot product, David said: "Next year you will see the coming of the robot revolution, because you will see many things displayed today. You can see them in the streets and lanes, in every store. It even allows you to A robot that really falls in love will make you emotional. Especially behind the robot is a very strong intelligent software that can do emotional interaction, and a robot that really cares about you will appear soon.”
Zhang Jiang, an associate professor at the School of System Science at Beijing Normal University and the founder of Jizhi Club, said: "I have always been keen to think about a question, what kind of fusion is human and machine? This is not just artificial intelligence as an independent individual. When it develops, there is still a long way to go to reach this point, how it needs to be connected with the consciousness of human essence, and how to pass the consciousness to the machine.”
Wang Yuquan said that although robots are still far from completely imitating human movements, when we have clear needs, robots do a good job.
