What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of “cats.”) Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave … sooner than you probably think.

Understanding how society changes itself as it develops intelligence-extending technologies is key to recognising appropriate measures for both developing and regulating AI. In this talk Professor Joanna J Bryson roots “AI ethics” in the history and even prehistory of intelligent artefacts like language and writing, then describes the role of intelligence and communication in cooperation and competition. From here she looks at the political economy of distance-reducing technologies more generally, and information communication technologies, including AI in particular. Finally she makes concrete recommendations about what this implies about how we should incorporate AI technologies into our discourse, households, and laws.

1:37:29 ‘Category’ is a useful concept – gradients are often hard to compute – so compressing away gradients to focus on signals (categories) when needed
1:38:19 Scientific / decision tree thinking vs grounded common sense reasoning
1:40:00 Wisdom/common sense vs understanding. Common sense, tribal biases & group insanity. Self preservation, dunbar numbers

1:47:07 General intelligence as the result of control problems so general they require agents to become sentient
1:47:47 Solving the Turing test: asking the AI to explain intelligence. If response is an intelligible & testable implementation plan then it passes?

James Hendler is a recognized visionary, who, along with Tim Berners-Lee and Ora Lassila, created the Semantic Web. He continues to push the boundaries of thinking in computer science and artificial intelligence (AI) research with his latest book “Social Machines: The Coming Collision of Artificial Intelligence, Social Networking, and Humanity” that highlights the challenges and the possibilities of the interconnection of human and machine intelligence. Hendler’s talk will redefine the vision of how certain approaches in systems engineering can enable massive improvements in productivity for managers of information via sophisticated and increasingly intelligent algorithms, while at the same time leading to systems that perform in ways that are designed to work as naturalistically as possible for their human operators.

WILL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OUTSMART US ?
from – Brief Answers To Short Questions by Stephen Hawking. (More)

Artificial intelligence has been described as “the new electricity”, poised to revolutionize human life and benefit society as much or more than electricity did 100 years ago. AI has also been described as “our biggest existential threat”, a technology that could “spell the end of the human race”. Should we welcome intelligent machines or fear them? Or perhaps question whether they are actually intelligent at all? In this talk, AI researcher and award-winning author Melanie Mitchell describes the current state of artificial intelligence, highlighting the field’s recent stunning achievements as well as its surprising failures. Mitchell considers the ethical issues surrounding the increasing deployment of AI systems in all aspects of our society, and closely examines the prospects for imbuing computers with humanlike qualities.

Stuart Russell (University of California, Berkeley, USA):
I will briefly survey recent and expected developments in AI and their implications. Some are enormously positive, while others, such as the development of autonomous weapons and the replacement of humans in economic roles, may be negative. Beyond these, one must expect that AI capabilities will eventually exceed those of humans across a range of real-world-decision making scenarios. Should this be a cause for concern, as Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and others have suggested? And, if so, what can we do about it? While some in the mainstream AI community dismiss the issue, I will argue that the problem is real and that the technical aspects of it are solvable if we replace current definitions of AI with a version based on provable benefit to humans.

Some machine learning proponents claim you only have to provide data to get value. However, reality is a bit more complex. On the way to active analytics for business, we have to answer two big questions: What must happen to data before running machine learning algorithms, and how should machine learning output be used to generate actual business value? (More)

In machine learning, no algorithm works equally well for all problems, a phenomenon researchers sometimes refer to as the “no free lunch theorem.” At the 2016 World Science Festival, cognitive psychologist Gary Marcus discussed what this theorem means and why it indicates that there’s no such thing as an unbiased algorithm.
