Artificial Intelligence has become so intelligent that it is learning when to hide some information which can be used Afterwards.
Research from Stanford University and Googlediscovered that a system learning agent tasked with transforming aerial images in to map was concealing data so as to deceive later.
CycleGAN is a neural network that learns to transform images. From the first results, the machine learning representative was doing well but afterwards when it had been asked to do the reverse procedure for reconstructing aerial photos from road maps it revealed information that was eliminated in the initial process, TechCrunch reported.
As an example, skylights to a roof which were eliminated from the process of producing a street map would reappear if the agent was requested to undo the process.
While it’s very difficult to check to the internal workings of a neural network’s procedures, the research group audited the data that the neural network was creating, added TechCrunch.
It had been discovered that the broker did not really learn to make the map from the picture or vice-versa. It learned the way to subtly encode the features from one into the sound patterns of the other.
Even though it can look like the traditional example of a machine getting smarter, it’s in fact the opposite of that. In this case, the machine is not smart enough to perform the challenging job of converting image types found a way to cheat which humans are bad at discovering.
