Skynet Has Arrived? European Union Unveils RoboEarth, An Internet Just For Robots 1

Scientists have created a network which various smart devices and artificial intelligences will use autonomously to share information and learn from each other – increasing their capabilities. Should we just surrender now? The BBC reports:

A world wide web for robots to learn from each other and share information is being shown off for the first time. The system has been developed by research scientists from Philips and five European universities including Eindhoven.

It is the culmination of a four-year project, funded by the European Union. The eventual aim is that both robots and humans will be able to upload information to the cloud-based database, which would act as a kind of common brain for machines.

“At its core RoboEarth is a world wide web for robots: a giant network and database repository where robots can share information and learn from each other,” said Rene van de Molengraft, the RoboEarth project leader.

James Barrat, who has written extensively about the dangers of robots gaining their own intelligence, thinks there need to be safeguards: “The consequences of sharing that capability [to evolve or otherwise improve their own software] with the central ‘mind’ should be explored before it happens.”
