What will make the artificial intelligence that defeated the people in poker

Just a few days ago we told you about the first artificial intelligence, which won just five professional poker players. Despite the statement that the AI will be used for completely other purposes and a card game was just a test, details about why the need for such artificial intelligence is not followed. However, the long wait we had and the editorial Board of the journal Science recently told us why you created a new artificial intelligence. He needed to save human lives.

Recall that AI got the name Pluribus and it is designed by members of the University of Carnegie Mellon and the specialists of the company Facebook. And at first glance, the connection between the potential life saving and good performance of poker game can not be traced. But this is only at first glance.

“It’s all about strategy,” says Dr. Purusha Iyer, one of the developers of AI. “The limiting factor AI has always been scalability (i.e. the ability to deal with the increasing number of tasks). Poker is an example of how mathematical models can be used to develop strategies for situations in which we do not have full information about what is happening, however, needs to calculate the most advantageous position.”

Based on these words, you might think that the main use of the AI is military sphere. The task of planning, exploration and placement. This is partly because the use of AI in the military sector is not excluded, but scientists want to use the AI for other purposes. Thanks to the unique algorithms of artificial intelligence Pluribus, it is possible to conduct extremely precise and extremely reliable “biofeedback”. And thanks to this technology it is possible to cure a lot of heavy States. Including cancer.

What is biofeedback and why it will help to cure cancer?

In simple terms, biofeedback is obtained by simulating the optimal plan of treatment of a disease. That is, the machine is “fed” information about the health of the patient and at the exit she gives advice on medication and General treatment. Biofeedback is used now for cancer, autoimmune disease or severe infectious conditions.

There’s only one problem: modern algorithms work only with the data that they “know”. That is, those that have been pre-entered. They can’t work with data that is not known to them. Pluribus solves this problem, as they are able to predict the outcome of events with incredible precision and maximum benefit.

That is, roughly speaking, the system just need to “reload” and change the target to “win the most money” to “maximize life”. And if a not so smart systems, Pluribus doctors achieve good results, thanks to the new AI data will be even better, and the number of lives saved is much greater.
