How Machine Learning Will Change Augmented Reality 101

An anonymous reader writes "Augmented reality is already adding digital information to the world around us — but the next step to making it truly useful will be when it starts to use elements of machine learning to understand the real world, Mike Lynch, boss of machine learning software specialist Autonomy told silicon.com — also explaining machine learnings links with the theorems devised by 18th century cleric Thomas Bayes."

    No, no. Learn your history. It's Asimov's version of Newton's Laws.

    The full form goes something like:

    1. Every robot must remain in a state of constantly not injuring humans or causing them to become injured through the robot's state of rest.

    2. Any robot, subject to a force in the form of an order by a human undergoes an acceleration in the form of obeying the order as long as it does not contradict the first law.

    3. The mutual forces of action and reaction between a robot and another object must not allow that other object to end the existence of the robot, provided this doesn't conflict with the first two laws.

    I think that's it. Wikipedia probably has the full version.

"Today's robots are very primitive, capable of understanding only a few simple instructions such as 'go left', 'go right', and 'build car'." --John Sladek
