Machines are starting to think on their own, and they are learning how to scare us.

機器現在正開始獨立思考,並學習如何嚇我們。

 

  Smart computers taking over the world used to be science fiction. These days, however, true artificial intelligence is just around the corner. Many people are already afraid that computers are getting too smart for their own good. Given this fear, it is surprising that scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) designed an artificial intelligence to frighten us. They call it the Nightmare Machine. The project's goals are to ease people's fear towards intelligent machines and make their AI smarter.

  智慧型電腦攻佔全世界曾是科幻小說裡的場景。然而,現今,真實的人工智慧即將來臨。很多人很害怕電腦變得太聰明對自己不好。鑒於這個恐懼,令人驚奇的是麻省理工學院的科學家設計出一個人工智慧來嚇我們。他們把它稱作惡夢製造機。這項計劃的目的是要減輕人們對智能機器的恐懼,使他們的人工智慧變得更聰明。

  Luckily, the Nightmare Machine isn't as scary as it sounds. It is just a program that edits pictures to make them look scarier. For example, the Nightmare Machine can change the colors and shapes of famous landmarks to make them look like they are old and haunted. The results are frightening, but the really scary images are those of people's faces.

  幸運的是,惡夢製造機沒有聽起來的那麼可怕。它只是一個編輯圖片讓它們看起來比較嚇人的程式。例如,惡夢製造機可以改變著名地標的顏色和外形,使它們看起來又老又像鬧鬼。該成果令人害怕,但是真正恐怖的是人臉的那些圖片。

  The Nightmare Machine can turn anyone into a monster. It twists and rearranges faces in very disturbing ways. People can vote for the scariest images on their website to help improve the Nightmare Machine's ability to learn. Once people get involved, they will see that artificial intelligence is not as scary as it seems.

  惡夢製造機可以使任何人變成怪物。它扭曲、重組臉部,使其變成十分令人不安的樣子。人們可以在網站上票選最恐怖的圖片以協助加強惡夢製造機的學習技巧。一旦人們參與其中,他們將會了解人工智慧並沒有看起來那樣可怕。
