Monitoring Artificial Intelligence and hyper-automation
With the world hurtling closer to AI/human hybrids, it’s never been more important to get an education in advice artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, the new training platform created by OpenAI, a San Francisco-based nonprofit, is only available to AI — so if you’re human, you’re out of luck.
The new ‘college’ is, in actuality, a training platform called Universe, whereby AI can interact with games, web browsers, protein folding software, and “transfer learning,” which allows them to take what they’ve learned in one application and apply it to another. The AI engages via Virtual Network Computing, or VNC, which involves them sending simulated mouse and keyboard strokes. The process proceeds through trial and error and risk and reward.
The Universe digital suite’s home is in the OpenAI artificial intelligence learning center in San Francisco, where developers will begin “measuring and training AI agents.” OpenAI is the non-profit brainchild of entrepreneurs Elon Musk and Peter Thiel, who have made no secret of their ambitions to greatly accelerate the research and development of transhumanist technologies.
