Daniel Estrada29,946This week an announcement rippled through the internet: a computer passed Turing's test. Soon after the backlash began: the test was rigged, the resulted were hyped, and Eugene, the machine in question, was lame. Now the backlash is giving way to even stronger criticisms. +Massimo Pigliucci recently argued (http://goo.gl/VdilBI) that not only was this test illegitimate, but Turing's test itself should be abandoned. But Massimo's argument is deeply mistaken about the nature of Turing's test, what it seeks to prove, and why it matters for science. I've been writing all week about this event:http://goo.gl/J26xbs, http://goo.gl/5RKIm7, http://goo.gl/c07lLG, http://goo.gl/T98ubJ, http://goo.gl/8cMKSIBut now that the backlash against the event is directed at Turing's views themselves, I feel something more than an essay is required to address these concerns. To be convincing, this requires a human face and a human voice to speak out in defense of Turing's proposal.I'm fully aware of the irony of this situation. So come hangout with me and +Jon Lawhead this Friday at 10pm EST while I defend Turing's proposal in light of the criticisms that have accrued over the last week. I'll be providing a defense of Turing's position informed by recent experimental work in psychology. I hope to convince even the skeptics like Massimo that Turing's test deserves a central place in our discussion of artificial intelligence in the modern world. Why the Turing Test matters2014-06-14 04:00:009

The tautological clock

This humorous clock reminds me of the concept of a vector bundle in mathematics. To form a vector bundle over a space X, we associate a vector space (such as k-dimensional Euclidean space) to each point of X in such a way that the spaces fit together to form another space of the same type as X. What this clock is doing is associating a clock to each time of day, and then fitting those together to form another clock.

More specifically, I think this clock is reminiscent of the concept of a tautological bundle, which appears in the following context. The set of k-dimensional subspaces of an n-dimensional vector space forms a space called a Grassmannian, whose points are the k-dimensional subspaces. If we work over the real or complex numbers, the Grassmannian has the structure of a smooth manifold, which means that, within an... more »

If you are vaccinated you have about a one percent chance of being infected. Without a vaccination you have a 90% chance. 

These sort of numbers don't matter to the anti-vaccination crowd, and to that extent suffering persists in this world.

One of the most important things you learn in any job is what's actually safe and what isn't. This is true if you're fueling trucks, raising a kid, or designing spacecraft: you develop a profound intuition for which corners are completely fine to cut and which things you never even slightly mess around with. Most often, as you learn a trade, you more and more realize that things you thought were dangerous are actually safe -- which makes sense, since it's better for those who don't know to assume danger. You end up dividing things into three groups: things that really are dangerous, things that are dangerous unless you know what you're doing, and things which aren't dangerous at all.

Of course, what you really don't want is for a bunch of amateurs to then tell you how to do your job. There's the old joke about how first-time parents, when their baby drops a... more »

You end up dividing things into three groups: things that really are dangerous, things that are dangerous unless you know what you're doing, and things which aren't dangerous at all.

Of course, what you really don't want is for a bunch of amateurs to then tell you how to do your job. There's the old joke about how first-time parents, when their baby drops a pacifier, will resterilize it in boiling water; second-time parents will give it a quick rinse; third-time parents will shrug, wipe it off on their shirt, and stick it back in the kid. You really wouldn't want a bunch of first-time parents (or non-parents) passing a law mandating that you sterilize everything. What you want is for less-experienced people to learn from more-experienced people.

In this context, here's an interesting new Pew survey of attitudes towards science. What I found most interesting about it is that a lot of the questions on which there were big differences between scientists' opinions and those of the general public were precisely "is this safe" questions tied to the things that scientists deal with every day. 

Most of the time, people who know the subject say that something which sounds dangerous is actually perfectly safe: eating genetically modified foods, eating foods grown with pesticides, getting vaccines, building nuclear power plants (!). Perhaps more interestingly, there are some things which the general public thinks is safe which experts say OH HELL NO GET AWAY FROM THAT SWITCH YOU LUNATIC to: allowing climate change and increasing offshore drilling being the two most notable examples. That's part of the same kind of professional eyeball: sometimes you know that something is just a giant deathtrap waiting to happen. Turns out that offshore drilling rigs are far, far more alarming to professionals than nuclear power plants: the former fail all the time, in horribly disastrous ways, while the latter are actually pretty reliable, all told.

We can talk about lots of reasons for this: for example, the media loves to make things sound really scary (because that sells newspapers), or people don't know enough about the details. But really, what's going on is simply the judgment of experience: people who work with various strange and foreign things, day-in and day-out, tend to get a pretty good feeling for what does and doesn't matter. And it's not always going to be obvious which is which: you just have to ask people who know.___

#hope  .

Adam Blackstone:

A few days ago Elon Musk announced that SpaceX will start building satellites in house, and their first project is to build a constellation of satellites orbiting at 750 miles altitude (which is fairly low, for a satellite) to provide broadband internet access to the entire globe, and also serve as an internet backbone. [...] A reasonable skeptic would ask at this juncture though whether anyone has tried this before, and what their success was like. The answers to those questions are “Quite a few”, and “Total failure”. The Iridium constellation cost over $5 billion and went through bankruptcy. Today the satellites are still in orbit but provide mostly just expensive cellular phone and paging services. The Teledisc constellation (which sounds very similar to the proposed SpaceX plan) failed before even getting off the ground, despite funding from Bill Gates and a Saudi prince. Globalstar went bankrupt shortly after launching its constellation, and the successor entity continues to downsize and cut costs. SkyBridge LLC failed so completely it doesn’t even warrant a Wikipedia entry, and its spectrum allocation was sold to WorldVu which hopes to launch satellites in 2019. (Hope springs eternal)

So given that every previous attempt has gone bankrupt, why should we get excited about this one? Well, the answer returns to the economics. 

[...]

SpaceX meanwhile has brought launch costs down significantly, even before achieving reusability. The Falcon 9 costs $61 million per launch, and the Falcon Heavy when it goes operational later this year will be only (“only” is a relative term in space flight) $85 million per flight for the most capable rocket launched from the United States since the Saturn V was retired. The next biggest rocket, the Delta IV Heavy from Boeing, costs 900% more per pound – $375 million for half the cargo. If SpaceX does achieve reusability later this year, costs should drop by another 50% immediately, and eventually as much as 90%.___ #hope  .

Your amusing bit of random data for the day: Someone dug through public records and made a map of names which are disproportionately popular among certain professions. So for example, while there aren't many people named Elvis out there, a rather large fraction of those who are named Elvis are musicians.

This data is not, as far as I can tell, actually useful for anything, unless you are hearing people's names (and nothing else) and needing to take a guess as to their professions. But if you wanted to know that Garrett is probably an insurance salesman, while Adele is an accountant, then here you go.

I think that this article does a good job of describing what the world will look like once (once, not if) autonomous cars have taken over completely, and the many ways in which this will make all of our lives a lot better. (Saved lives, saved time, less pollution, less cost to each of us individually, etc) However, I think he grossly overestimates the speed of the transition: by 2025 I'd expect to see large-scale experiments rolling out, but I wouldn't expect to reach the final equilibrium point he's describing until 2050 at the soonest.

I think that he also underestimates the violence with which these changes will be resisted. As he points out, several existing industries are likely to be cratered, most notably car manufacture (autonomous cars serving people on-demand could be active 95% of the time, versus 4% of the time for passenger cars today; that's a 24x reduction in the... more »

We're already seeing tremendous resistance by vested interests in the existing taxi business to even ordinary competition like Uber; what will happen when it starts to become clear to them that the entire business is about to go away, never to return? 

In this regard, I think that we can draw useful lessons from the collapse of the longshoreman industry with the rise of containerized shipping. On the US' West Coast, strong longshore unions negotiated a phased shutdown with shipping companies; on the East Coast, weak unions spent more time fighting and undercutting each other than negotiating, and the net result was a serious collapse of all shipping to those ports, with the longshoremen bearing the brunt of it. Marc Levinson's book The Box has an interesting discussion of this. I suspect that similar phenomena will be seen here.

But even more so than with the transition to containerized shipping, the transition to autonomous vehicles is likely inevitable: the advantages are too large and too widespread, and the disadvantages too limited, for groups to successfully be able to prevent it for their own interest.___

These are more and more amazing every time I see them. 0_0

Patricia Piccinini's monstrously beautiful works

Piccinini was born in 1965 In Sierra Leone but moved to Australia in 1972 with her family. She initially studied economic history before enrolling at art school in Melbourne. Since 1991 her work has been exhibited around the world.

Piccinini works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, video, sound, installation and digital prints. She has an ambivalent attitude towards technology but enjoys exploring what she calls... the often specious distinctions between the artificial and the natural. She is keenly interested in how our changing understanding of these concepts will effect the further evolution of our society. Specific works have addressed concerns about biotechnology, such as gene therapy and ongoing research to map the human genome. She is also fascinated by the mechanisms of consumer culture. 

Probably one of my all-time favorite artists, each and every one of her works invites and rewards closer study. What at first sight appears shocking often reveals something surprisingly tender. Most of her work is very layered and can be interpreted in a multitude of ways.

Many will be quite surprised.

'Soft' artificial intelligence is suddenly everywhere. "This engineering-oriented AI is indeed everywhere, and being increasingly applied to activities requiring intelligence and cognitive capabilities that not long ago were viewed as the exclusive domain of humans. AI-based tools are enhancing our own cognitive powers, helping us process vast amounts of information and make ever more complex decisions."

Once, the world had no PCs, but then they were suddenly everywhere. Once there was no internet, but then it was suddenly everywhere. Once there were no smartphones, but then they were suddenly everywhere. Once there was no 'soft AI' but now it is suddenly everywhere. Today there is no 'strong AI', but one day it will be suddenly everywhere.

When that happens, all jobs will be automated and there will not be any such thing as a 'job' any more.___Many will be quite surprised.

Now, this one is no joke. It's an hour-long PBS program introducing viewers to The Internet. Note that in 1995, the Net was not yet synonymous with the Web in the popular parlance. Yeah, we had to listen to background music like that a lot back then.

It's a cliff one way or the other. It really is different this time.

This is a good overview and grounded speculation of current and near-term artificial intelligence development. Long but worth the read.

In short:

Artificial Narrow Intelligence: pretty good now, widely available.

Artificial General Intelligence: nascent, perennially out of reach, but probable.

Artificial Super Intelligence: unimaginable now, but nearly inevitable given AGI.

< There is some debate about how soon AI will reach human-level general intelligence—the median year on a survey of hundreds of scientists was 2040—that’s only 25 years from now, which doesn’t sound that huge until you consider that many of the thinkers in this field think it’s likely that the progression from AGI to ASI happens very quickly. Like—this could happen:

It takes decades for the first AI system to reach low-level general intelligence, but it finally happens. A computer is able understand the world around it as well as a human four-year-old. Suddenly, within an hour of hitting that milestone, the system pumps out the grand theory of physics that unifies general relativity and quantum mechanics, something no human has been able to definitively do. 90 minutes after that, the AI has become an ASI, 170,000 times more intelligent than a human. >___It's a cliff one way or the other. It really is different this time.

DARPA’s Real-Time Brain Monitoring Implant Should Be Ready by 2018
DARPA is seeking to understand more about how the brain works in hopes of developing effective therapies for troops and veterans. It has announced a new $70 million project called the Systems-Based Neurotechnology for Emerging Therapies (Subnets).

Subnets is inspired by Deep Brain Stimulation, or DBS, a surgical treatment that involves implanting a brain pacemaker in the patient’s skull to interfere with brain activity and help with symptoms of diseases like epilepsy and Parkinson’s. DARPA’s device will be similar, but rather than targeting one specific symptom, it will be able to monitor and analyze data in real time and issue a specific intervention according to brain activity.

"If Subnets is successful, it will advance neuropsychiatry beyond the realm of dialogue-driven observations and resultant trial and error and into the realm of therapy driven by quantifiable characteristics of neural state," DARPA program manager Justin Sanchez said…

DARPA will collate data from volunteers seeking treatment for unrelated neurological disorders as well as clinical research participants to construct models of how the brain behaves in normal and impaired conditions, with a focus on post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, borderline personality disorder, general anxiety disorder, traumatic brain injury, substance abuse/addiction, and fibromyalgia/chronic pain. It hopes to have its device ready in five years.

The tautological clock

This humorous clock reminds me of the concept of a vector bundle in mathematics. To form a vector bundle over a space X, we associate a vector space (such as k-dimensional Euclidean space) to each point of X in such a way that the spaces fit together to form another space of the same type as X. What this clock is doing is associating a clock to each time of day, and then fitting those together to form another clock.

More specifically, I think this clock is reminiscent of the concept of a tautological bundle, which appears in the following context. The set of k-dimensional subspaces of an n-dimensional vector space forms a space called a Grassmannian, whose points are the k-dimensional subspaces. If we work over the real or complex numbers, the Grassmannian has the structure of a smooth manifold, which means that, within an... more »

The tautological clock

More specifically, I think this clock is reminiscent of the concept of a tautological bundle, which appears in the following context. The set of k-dimensional subspaces of an n-dimensional vector space forms a space called a Grassmannian, whose points are the k-dimensional subspaces. If we work over the real or complex numbers, the Grassmannian has the structure of a smooth manifold, which means that, within an n-dimensional space, it is possible to morph k-dimensional subspaces into each other in a smooth way. One can then form the tautological bundle over the Grassmannian by using the vector spaces given by the points of the Grassmannian itself! This sounds almost like a mathematical joke, and it is more or less the same joke that the clock in the picture is making.

The clock face shown is a discrete object in the sense that it only displays its configurations at intervals of one hour. However, vector bundles are continuous objects, and the analogy above suggests the following construction of a continuous version of the clock. For this, we need a three-dimensional clock in which the small clock faces are inserted into the rim of the large clock face at right angles, instead of being placed flat on it. This could be used to show the continuous motion of the clock hands over a 12-hour period. 

To make it easier to see what is going on, we could just keep track of the tips of each hand using fluorescent lighting. The continuous tautological clock would then have two coiled, illuminated rings running around its circumference: a larger, more tightly coiled ring showing the positions of the minute hand during a 12-hour period, and a smaller, more loosely coiled ring showing the positions of the hour hand during the same 12-hour period. It might not be a very useful timepiece, but I think it would look interesting as a work of art.

Is that the time? I should stop: it's almost 12-o'clock-o'clock.

Grassmannians have applications to video-based computer recognition of faces and shapes, as well as to particle physics. More information on Grassmannians can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grassmannian

A Martian devil

Mars is a windy place!  This dust devil, roughly 20 kilometers high but just 70 meters wide, was seen whirling through northern Mars on March 14, 2007.  It was imaged by a high resolution camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter... and NASA made this animation based on what they saw.

Dust devils happen on Earth too - I often see them in the deserts around here!  They're spinning columns of air, made visible by the dust they pull off the ground.  Unlike tornadoes, they usually form on clear days when the ground is heated by the sun, warming the air just above the ground. 

As a bunch of hot air rises, it can start to rotate, by chance... and as more hot air rushes in to replace the air that is rising, the rotation becomes stronger.  So the dust devil grows and sustains itself, becoming a quick way for hot air to rise... until it dies.

Puzzle: why does it die?

In short, a dust devil is a great example of how efficient increase in entropy can actually create ordered structures, which however have a finite lifetime.  You are an example of this.

This dust devil happened in Amazonis Planitia  during the late spring, two weeks short of the northern summer solstice, when the ground in the northern mid-latitudes is heated most strongly by the sun.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been examining the Red Planet with six science instruments since 2006.   You can see thousands of images taken by HiRISE - the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment - at this website:

We believe the Dataflow programming model, based on years of experience at Google, can provide maximum developer productivity and seamless portability. That's why in December we open sourced the Cloud Dataflow SDK, which offers a set of primitives for large-scale distributed computing, including rich semantics for stream processing. This allows the same program to execute either in stream or batch mode. 

Today, we’re taking the next step in ensuring the portability of the Dataflow programming model by working with +Cloudera to make Dataflow run on Spark. See the details here: http://goo.gl/WTx5TS
