On Monday, April 19, 2021, a seminar organized by the Association of Physicists of Moldova (SFM) within the framework of the SPINTECH project (grant agreement # 810144) will take place, at which SFM President, Academician Anatolie Sidorenko will speak with a report “Quo Vadis? Ethics of Scientific Research: Artificial Neural Networks”.
An artificial neural network (ANN), or a brain-like computer with a non-von Neumann architecture, surpasses the speed of neurons in the human brain, a biological neural network, in terms of switching speed. For a number of tasks, the ANN will become an extremely useful tool - for example, in air traffic control. Tragic mistakes of air traffic controllers are known due to their fatigue and overload. The ANN does not know such fatigue, it can accurately manage air flows for days and months without interruption. But other, much less humane applications of artificial intelligence systems are also possible - in virusological genetic engineering, in militarization of the space. What can prevent the pathological applications of the results of science?
American science fiction writer Isaac Asimov 70 years ago formulated three ethical laws of robotics - a code of rules for robots. Long ago, he foresaw the problems of our time, and they become more and more urgent - as the capabilities of neural networks and artificial intelligence systems are developing.
In this seminar, we will get acquainted with the basic principles of the construction and functioning of the first artificial neural network - the perceptron.
Lupu Maria will present a report on the topic "One-Layer Perceptron".
