Chaque vendredi, dans sa revue de presse, Maddyness vous propose une sélection d’articles qui ont retenu l’attention de la rédaction. Cette semaine, on s'interroge sur les robots, l'intelligence artificielle et sur le futur de l'homme par le prisme de l'éducation.

Robots are evolving so quickly that the big concern may be how much we don't know about AI

But we get news reports from the proceedings and the most interesting one today concerns the World Economic Forum’s recent report which claims the biggest risk in 2017 is people losing their jobs to robots. The word out of Davos is we have nothing to fear. 80% of companies that are adopting artificial intelligence have pledged that they will still retain and retrain existing staff.

Here's why those tech billionaires are throwing millions at ethical AI


Worried about a dystopian future in which AI rule the world and humans are enslaved to autonomous technology? You're not alone. So are billionaires (kind of). First it was the Partnership on AI formed by Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and IBM. Then came Elon Musk and Peter Thiel's recent investment in $1 billion research body, OpenAI.  Now, a new batch of tech founders are throwing money at ethical artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous systems (AS). And experts say it couldn't come sooner. Lire la suite sur Mashable
