What is Artificial Intelligence?
Machine Learning Explained
Everything you always wanted to know about AI but were afraid to ask.
What is Artificial Intelligence? In 5 minutes.
Prof. Jürgen Schmidhuber has been called the father of modern Artificial Intelligence. His lab’s deep learning methods have revolutionized machine learning and are now available on three billion smartphones, and used billions of times per day, e.g. for Facebook’s automatic translation, Google’s speech recognition, Apple’s Siri & QuickType, Amazon’s Alexa, etc.
His research group also established the field of mathematically rigorous universal AI and optimal universal problem solvers. His formal theory of creativity & curiosity & fun explains art, science, music, and humor.
He is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2016 IEEE Neural Networks Pioneer Award “for pioneering contributions to deep learning and neural networks”. Scientific Director of the Swiss AI Lab, IDSIA, DTI, SUPSI; Prof. of AI, Faculty of Informatics, USI, Lugano; Co-founder & Chief Scientist, NNAISENSE, Switzerland.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
Robot Sophia discusses Artificial Intelligence.
Robots are more advanced than many of us may think.
They are fully capable of having real-world conversations and have the mental and cognitive structures to eventually surpass humanity in 3-5 years according to Hanson Robotic chief scientist Ben Goertzel. Elon Musk with his Artificial Intelligence company OpenAI, which studies the potential dangers associated with A.I. has been adamantly warning humanity that Artificial Intelligence poses one of the biggest impending dangers humanity must confront in the coming years.
The Russians are also in the A.I. game and have essentially built a Terminator-like war robot termed Fedor. They have a robot that doesn’t just accurately shoots targets but also drives a car, which puts a whole new term to the concepts of self-driving cars.
