By Simon Kuperman/BBC News”I am trying to make my work more accessible, more accessible for anyone to understand,” he said.
“That means that the tools that I use and the things that I make are open and transparent.”‘
I am doing something for the whole planet’For the past four years, Mr Zaitsev has been working on a series of experiments that involve creating artificial intelligence software, using computer programs and human input to analyse and predict the behaviour of robots.
“I’m trying to create a machine that is capable of understanding human speech, understanding language and speech recognition,” he told BBC News.
“It’s an artificial intelligence.
It’s a computer, so it has to have some brain and some memory.”
The computer will also have to recognise human speech and recognise speech patterns.
“You need to create an interface for that to work.
And then you need to use that interface to make predictions about what the robot is going to say,” he added.
The first of the experiments to be run in the UK will involve an assistant that helps the computer to understand what the human is saying.
“We are going to try to have a robot that understands English and understands Russian, and so we’re going to have that robot speak English to the robot, and then we’re also going to help it to make decisions based on what the other robot is saying,” Mr Ziltsev explained.
“So what I’m doing is creating a machine with human speech recognition, so the machine can be able to do some of the things a human can do, and some of those things are very useful, and I think the computer is going be able at the same time to do things that are very helpful and not very useful.”
The team behind the first UK experiment has developed software that has been used in the past by researchers to understand the behaviour and motivations of different animals.
“A lot of the research that we’ve done has been done with animals, and the main focus has been on learning how to communicate with each other, to understand and to understand other people,” Mr Jaspal said.
The new software will be used by the BBC Future project, which is looking to develop robots that can understand the world from the perspective of a human.
The researchers hope to develop the software and then build it into a robot for the public to use.
“For me, this is really about making sure that the machines are aware of how humans talk to them,” Mr Tarnopolsky said.’
This is an important moment for humanity’Professor Andrew Higgs, from the University of Reading, who has written extensively about artificial intelligence, said the future of artificial intelligence could look very different.
“The challenge that AI is going through is not only to make it a lot smarter but to make the robots smarter as well,” he explained.
But Mr Zindsev said that the future was far from being decided, and that the UK experiments could be part of a larger global experiment to see if AI could be used to help humans better understand and communicate with robots.”[This] is really an important period in history for the human race,” he remarked.
“What we are trying to do here is give the AI a brain.”
To me, it’s the first step towards the development of a universal language, and a universal brain.””
We’re going back to a place where we know that we can talk to robots, that we understand them, and we’re not going back, we’re just trying to learn more,” he concluded.
