DeepMind's AlphaZero AI just taught itself chess in a few hours
And immediately became the most dominant chess-playing entity in the world.

How long before Skynet?

His title was more impressive/eye catching. :)

It was also more accurate. I referred to our new overlord as AlphaGo. The correct name is AlphaZero. AlphaZero has already defeated AlphaGo in the latter's game.

It seems scary, but from my (admittedly limited) understanding of the state of AI, we are still a long way away from actual scary intelligence.

From the little bit I've looked into it, machine learning and neural networks seem to be just an interesting and effective way to solve problems. It's basically trial and error until a desired result is produced or goal achieved. AFAIK, nobody is close to producing an AI that can actually set its own goals.. we still have to set the parameters for "success" and the rules of the game.

I will start to get scared when someone sets a scary goal for an AI, gives it the tools (or means to acquire the tools) it needs to interact with the world outside its own system, and also a way to gather the inputs it needs to determine whether it is closer to reaching its goal. But if someone were willing and able to do all that, there are easier ways to achieve whatever it is they want to do.

I will only really get scared if/when an AI is ever able to actually set a goal for itself.

Fine with me, I have almost zero chess knowledge other than how the pieces move. I am at AlphaZero's level when it was initially fed the rules of the game.

Do you even "en passant", bro?
