Scientists have created artificial intelligence that can reproduce itself
A group of Scottish scientists led by Professor Emma Hart of the University of Edinburgh managed to develop an artificial intelligence program that allows robots to reproduce using a 3D printer. This is according to an article in the Egyptian publication Sasapost.As scientific and technological progress accelerates, there is a need to develop such AI systems that can produce robots capable of leading independent lives, including reproduction and evolution in extreme conditions - whether other planets or the underwater world of the seas and oceans. Emma Hart's team, according to the publication, managed to realize the idea of creating self-reproducing robots, which was born back in the 1970s. After many unsuccessful attempts to develop evolutionary algorithms, American roboticists managed to do so in 2019. The mechanical arm they designed could program itself. A year later, Google specialists developed the AutoML-Zero program, which is capable of generating a large variety of artificial intelligence algorithms. In the future, such a program will allow to train algorithms to communicate and transmit information to each other. This process will be something like "pairing", where data will move from one set to another, eventually forming one base with two codes. We will have an artificial intelligence system that will be able to self-evolve, change its appearance and behavioral functions. Simply put, robots will live like humans.
