The Man & Machine Issue: Artificial Intelligence vs. Human Behavior

Credit to Author: Alex Voigt| Date: Sat, 09 Nov 2019 20:30:18 +0000

The world is currently discussing if artificial systems are good or bad, will help us or destroy us, and if they will ever function or not, and by doing that people make the mistake of actually trying to answer the wrong question. As of today, the biggest question about artificial intelligence is not the system [&hellip

Tesla Full Self Driving: Feature Complete ≠ Experienced Driver

There is much confusion about “feature complete” Full Self Driving, a Tesla-only product. Many think that is when Full Self Driving is available and you can take a nap while the car is driving. When you think about the features that have been released up until now, you will understand better

We can impose our biases about the salient on neural nets and that has significant value, for example in looking at user experience wire frames and assessing how useful they are in delivering stakeholder value. But we will also be surprised by what the alien quasi-intelligences we are creating consider salient

Tesla Full Self Driving (FSD) might be feature complete by the end of this year. That means a Tesla will be able to drive itself in normal traffic from one location to another, using highways when needed, but in a rudimentary way. As a human driver with a learner’s permit, who is allowed to drive but only with an experienced driver beside him or her who can intervene when needed, these Tesla vehicles have to be monitored by a normal human driver

A neural net is trained to recognize that things that it is seeing are items of value, i.e. logs. It identifies them. But that’s a noun, not a verb. Where does the verb or action come from? That’s an attention loop. An attention space. People who care. Features. A neural net which is being trained to pay attention. Trainers. But little to no understanding of action. Yet
