Artificial swarm intelligences are taking over

How Artificial intelligence will enhance unmanned systems

Artificial Intelligence and unmanned systems - no other connection of innovative developments and technologies is as crushing as this one.

With a bunch of knowledge in this field, Fabian is the leading human Venture Capital Investor for Artificial Intelligence. His passion lies in Artificial Intelligence and its impact on society. 

Additional he organizes the yearly Rise of AI conference to bring entrepreneurs, investors, media, politicians and scientists together. Furthermore he serves as coordinator for Artificial Intelligence at the German Association for Startups.  He enjoys speaking about Artificial Intelligence at events like TEDx, Bit&Pretzel and hub. Since 2011 he has been blogging about entrepreneurship, venture capital and the future on www.bootstrapping.me and favors 250,000 readers. 

He will enlighten Artificial Swarm Intelligences and their impact on society.


Interview

BUVUS-Team: Mr. Westerheide, you are speaking about artificial swarm technologies.

How does this technology match with unmanned systems?

 

Fabian Westerheide: The success of unmanned systems depends on swarm intelligence. We humans have limited capabilities to control more than a few objects at the same time. We need systems, we adapt, learn and fuillfill missions without steering each object ourself. You as a human will give a strategic order and the artificial swarm autonomous systems will accomplish the mission.

 

BUVUS-Team: Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) pure science or is it the next step in our technological development?

 

Fabian Westerheide: Artificial Intelligence already exists. It is real and not fiction. However I tend to call them Narrow AIs. These are system, which are very good at a given task and even suceed humans: playing chess, playing Go, playing Poker, driving cars, controlling fleets of autonomous objects, trading stocks, writing large quantity of text, translation and more. However they are currently limited to transfer the knowledge to other fields. A Poker AI can’t drive a car. A truck-driving AI can’t trade stocks.  

 

BUVUS-Team: How will “Artificial swam technologies” change the innovation and technology of unmanned systems?

 

Fabian Westerheide: Artificial swarm technology is critical for unmanned systems. If we want to run large scale operations and missions, these systems have to act autonomous within their given orders. Only with adding sufficient intelligence and autonomity, the swarm can act on its own.

The next generation of cars, trucks, planes, subways, drones, submarines will be autonmous. Within given rules, they can make own decision. Therefore less people are needed to navigate, drive and steer each object. With less people you have more control over larger fleets. Technology helps us to scale. This idea is nothing new: large companies, states and the army follow this principle for centuries. Someone makes strategic decisions and somewhere else these decisions are executed. However now smart machines will execute the human goals. Less humans needed.

 

BUVUS-Team: I can see a very interesting impact of ethical questions when it comes to AI. Where do you see the actual difficulties?

 

Fabian Westerheide: Machines make less mistakes than humans, but there will be learnings. We need openess for machine errors, when they hurt humans. We need an open discussion to adapt and maybe to provide the right regulartory frameworks. The surivial of the human society needs to be guranteed, but technological progress can’t be stopped.  

 

BUVUS-Team: What do you expect from the CeBIT Unmanned Systems & Solutions?

 

Fabian Westerheide: Interesting conversations and new contacts.

 

Thank you for this interview and the answers.
