Artificial intelligence today, what should we do with it the first time we meet it? Actually, my memory isn't that good, but this one I really remember, and I think it was 1994, like 25 years ago, a pal, PhH colleague of mine came to the office and said, hey guys, you've got to look at this, and then he brought us to his laptop, and then he typed something, and then suddenly we saw these coffee machine. This coffee pot boiling, and it was the coffee pot at Cambridge, and what he actually showed us was Mosaic was the first web browser ever, at least the first web browser that became public. You're watching Look East from the BBC coming up crazy about coffee, login to View the Broom. Now, if you thought watching paint dry was dull then how about watching a coffee percolator do nothing at all. Every day 1,000 people log on to the Internet to find out whether a coffee pot at Cambridge University is full or well, not so far. More than two million people have done it so far and the numbers are still rising. Alex Dunlop has been surfing the net. Well, I've got my coffee, I've got my keyboard. So let's surf the net. The computer laboratory at Cambridge University where the scientists love their coffee, it was so popular that they focused a camera on the percolator so that everyone in the building new went up fresh brew was on. A year later, they gave it its own Internet site, unaware that more than two million people would share their addiction. When we did this, it was one of the earliest if not the earliest cameras on the web, and it has gone from that novelty aspect to being of historic interest remarkably quickly, and I think perhaps on the web that can happen much faster than anywhere else. Every three seconds an image is grabbed of the world's most famous coffee pot, the first live feed of an inanimate object. Its fame has filtered as far afield as Japan. Well, the computer laboratory coffee pot is topped up at a nearby cyber cafe hundreds surf the net everyday and what are known as webcam sites where static camera records everything and everyone that moves. Scientists at Cambridge had decided to put their coffee pot, a picture of it, so we can see when the coffee was ready on the Internet. Of course we laughed, we laughed quite a lot. It was in the really early days so the Internet, but then life changed, it changed quite a lot, and the Internet has become quite a lot of more. But the thing is, it's very similar to the way we can see on artificial intelligence today. What should we do with it the first time we meet it? Well, we should do roughly speaking what we can't do with it, and that is what we could do with the Internet in the early days, but could have put a picture of a boiling coffee pot on the Internet. Now, what's the point of that? Well, we know that today, but in the early phases of a new technology coming, we utilize it for what we can utilize it for, and with it actually also says is that the best way to start off with artificial intelligence is to start small, because its a learning journey. People like me who actually did not do research in the field of Internet at this moment, what did I do? Well, I may be mainly used the web browser to look on what could be found out there, and then gradually that way, I've got to learn what the Internet was, and obviously of course today it's far more, and the thing is we could do the same with artificial intelligence today just with our own smartphones because we already have quite lot of AI in it. I am in SIRI and I work for Apple. Do you know what I do there? Apple's virtual assistant and phone control interface. Alexa you seem very well, but do you know how to rap? My name is Alexa, and I'm here to say, I'm the baddest AI in the Cloud today, your responses are fast, but mine are faster, sucker speech engines, they call me Master. That's the way to get acquainted with the new technology, learning what we can do with it. So start off small and see that's a learning journey.
