Computers already play games such as Super Mario Bros or chess better then humans do. But can they understand emotions and interact with humans? Or even become smarter than the human race? In his insightful talk, 22 year-old Daniel Dippold shows how a computer plays Super Mario and discovers the rules all by itself. He explains that society has not clearly defined what AI is yet and appeals urgently to the viewers by suggesting an open and broader discussion on the philosophical and ethical aspects of AI.

When most of us look at A.I. we see magical capabilities. When economists look at A.I. they see something very different. Economist Ajay Agrawal explains: "What economists bring to the conversation is that they are able to look at a fascinating technology like artificial intelligence and strip all the fun and wizardry out of it and reduce A.I. down to a single question, which is, 'What does this technology reduce the cost of?'" Never has one person taken such delight in stripping the fun from something awesome. But what does A.I. lower the cost of? Predictions, says Agrawal. Intelligent machines can take information we have and use it to generate information we need. Uncertainty is the single biggest hurdle in good decision making, and A.I. can drastically increase certainty in many areas, like automated vehicles, language translation, human resources and medical diagnostics. As A.I. becomes a cheaper technology, its use will become even more widespread. "Where I think it’s really interesting is that when it becomes cheap, we’ll start using it for things that weren’t traditionally prediction problems but we’ll start converting problems into prediction problems to take advantage of the new, cheap prediction." Ajay Agrawal is the co-author of Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence. (More)

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are changing the nature of biological research, especially genomics. Artificial intelligence applications are opening up our understanding of ourselves and disease, and we must strive to create tools that can work as partners in research, not simply as black boxes. Barbara Engelhardt is an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at Princeton University since 2014. She graduated from Stanford University and received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, advised by Professor Michael Jordan. She did postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, working with Professor Matthew Stephens, and three years at Duke University as an assistant professor. Interspersed among her academic experiences, she spent two years working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a summer at Google Research, and a year at 23andMe, a DNA ancestry service. Professor Engelhardt received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, the Walter M. Fitch Prize from the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution, an NIH NHGRI K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, and the Sloan Faculty Fellowship.

Faster medical treatment saves lives. Machine Learning is already saving lives, by scouring a multitude of patients’ data and comparing them to one patient’s health data to detect symptoms 12 to 24 hours sooner than a doctor could. "In many pressing medical problems, the answers to knowing whom to treat, when to treat, and what to treat with, might already be in your data" says Suchi Saria. Learn how TREWS (Targeted Real-time Early Warning Score) is leading the way to save lives. (More)

Artificial Intelligence in simple terms is a branch of technology that focuses on machines and them having the capability to think and make decisions like human beings. It has evolved to an extent where machines are able to recognize speech, visuals, languages and eventually make sound decisions. Moving on, Machine Learning is the subset of Artificial Intelligence that helps machines make decisions based on their previous outcomes or experiences. Moving further ahead, we have the final branch of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Machine Learning that is a subset of Machine Learning. What is Deep Learning? In Deep Learning machine trains itself with the help of deep learning algorithms and neural networks to recognize images or detect speech. Deep Machine Learning is the most advanced form of Artificial Intelligence today. (More)

What is a true artificial intelligence and why don't we have it today? To answer this question, high school student Andrew Zeitler looks at the different parts of our mind that make us human beings. We are given an idea of how certain processes of our brain can be programmed with today's technology. He takes us on a journey from the hard-wired neurones of our brain to the very fundamental aspects of the human species. Within this thought-provoking talk, Andrew shares his idea of how an artificial mind may "think" and how such a program would function just like a human being. (More)

For all the talk of AI, it always seems that gossip is faster than progress. But it could be that within this century, we will fully realize the visions science fiction has promised us, says Dr. Ben Goertzel – for better or worse. Humanity will always create and invent, but the last invention of necessity will be a human-level Artificial General Intelligence mind, which will be able to create a new AIG with super-human intelligence, and continually create smarter and smarter versions of itself. It will provide all basic human needs – food, shelter, water – and those of us who wish to experience a higher echelon of consciousness and intelligence will be able to upgrade to become super-human. Or, perhaps there will be war – there’s a bit of uncertainty there, admits Goertzel. “There’s a lot of work to get to the point where intelligence explodes… But I do think it’s reasonably probable we can get there in my lifetime, which is rather exciting,” he says. Ben Goertzel's most recent book is AGI Revolution: An Inside View of the Rise of Artificial General Intelligence ( (More)
